The ship was gorgeous, clean and up to date. The triple wide panorama windows gave us a fabulous view. The crew was professional and went above and beyond for our comfort. The staterooms well appointed. The food was fabulous! Our tour guides were interesting and very professional! There was food all day long, and it was beautifully prepared and served. The wine was delicious and flowing. We have already signed up for another Avalon Cruise! From the time we arrived we were met at the plane and were escorted with our luggage to a fabulous hotel in Paris. From there to our embarkation on the ship to the debarkation to our extension cities, the transportation and logistics of our luggage was handled with extreme care and diligence. We felt like royalty because of the service to the point that when we returned from excursions there was specially infused water and hot wash cloths for our refreshment and comfort.
