  3. Avalon Tapestry II
Previously went on the Avalon Burgundy-Provence cruise and wanted to see France again - chose Normandy because my father fought and was injured there. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions even though the weather was cold and rainy, which turned to sleet and snow on one occasion. We enjoy the city tours at the ports with the local guides who not only are well versed, but enthusiastic and passionate about the history they share. In addition, we especially like the option of having free time explore on our own. This was the second time we had Jean Loup as the tour director, and he is absolutely one of the best. The staff, as well, are very accommodating and they excel at making the ship your home away from home. We loved the fact that there is no assigned seating for meals, which makes it a great opportunity to meet other travelers. River cruising, in our opinion, is the best way to see the world.
