  3. Avalon Tapestry II
My wife and I chose Avalon because we had been on one of their cruises before down the Rhine River and found the service and the cruise director to be excellent. We were not disappointed on this cruise. The cabin was very comfortable given the necessary limited size do to it being on a ship. The food was excellent and the service also excellent. Twice during the cruise, various French workers called a one-day strike that created potential disruption to our planned itinerary. The cruise director, Jean-Loup Domart, the captain, Rudy Viellard, and their crew were able to work out arrangements so that the flow of the cruise was not affected. They were working constantly to keep the whole trip moving without any major disruption. The guides for the excursions on this cruise were especially noteworthy. They were very knowledgeable and very personable. This added much to our overall experience and I learned many details from them. On the whole it was a wonderful experience and we will certainly look to Avalon as our first choice for our next cruise.

Our Second Avalon Cruise was as Wonderful as our First

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin A
While we could not say that the cabin was spacious, given the limitations of a river ship, it was very comfortable. In fact the orientation of bed and furniture relative to the door and the sliding glass door made movement easier than it had been in our cabin on our previous cruise, the Avalon Felicity.

We did have a problem with the shower head. We reported it to the reception desk and it was fixed immediately, while we were out on an excursion.
