Avalon Poetry II Cruise Review by klmooers@gmail.com

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: France
  • Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Our friends that are wine connoisseurs wanted to tour region. We wanted to see Monaco but this trip did not end up there as the brochure stated when we booked.

We enjoyed all the stops and seeing so many wonderful places., especially the small, quaint little towns and unusual things like "Garden of Eden," organ concert in cathedral, wine tasting in a chateau, etc.....

We also liked the French Balcony with views of the towns and countryside, however, it seemed that half the time we were double and triple docked with NO view. Did not like that part 'Wish river portion was longer.

The ship was nice, we had talks every evening, outlining activities, etc, - those could have been shorter.

It would be nice if tips were just part of the price. It is such an hassle/ordeal to worry about that at end of trip. Some companies include tips in price - much better.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin B 207

Nice, rooms plenty big enough, loved views out of windows, but did not like being double and triple docked with NO view half the time.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon)

Walked old city - nice

View All 26 Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon) Reviews
Avignon

Not as exciting as hoped for. Tour of palace underwhelming

Tournon-sur-Rhone

Garden of Eden was great and organ concert also.

Arles

It was okay, a carnival set up right outside docking area and had to walk through that to get to city. Interesting town.
