Avalon Tapestry II Cruise Review by DunkinDonuts

  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

We chose this cruise because it was a themed World War 2 history cruise. If we hadn't taken a private tour before getting onboard, I would have left disappointed. The guest lecturer, Nigel Stewart, was able to give us a broad overview of the history of the war that happened in the areas we were traveling. He stayed on ship all week and you could ask him questions pretty much at any time. The disappointment of the WW2 history was in the tours that were offered. There is a 2 1/2 hour travel time involved each way, so I understand that their is only so much time. But, we felt rushed during the tour because we had to get back on the bus and go again. So much to see and learn and we left feeling that we needed to go back and see things again because of what we missed.

The ship was very nice and clean. A very modern ship. Other than watching the world float by or sitting in the sun, not much else to do on board. The WIFI is spotty at best unless you sit in the lounge area.

The food was disappointing, but was okay. If possible, we ate in the lounge every night as they served the same food as in the main dinner area. It was in sample size portions so that was nice to try the different selections.

The crew was very nice all around. They made the trip as they were always trying to exceed your expectations. The captain was nice and was always around.

Our room was very nice, clean, and felt bigger than it was. We were lucky to not be docked next to other boats all the time, so we had a decent view in the different docking locations.

Overall, I would sail with Avalon again, but do things more on my own for tours.

Cabin P 314

Very clean and well maintained. The bathroom was very nice as well and did not feel crowded. Only complaint was that the room could have done with out the extra chair in the room.
