Avalon Poetry II Cruise Review by Sidcruise

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: France
  • Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with Window

Heard Avalon provided a very good river cruise. Had an excellent cruise director (Gayle Walter) and a very attentive crew. The trip was very organized and comfortable. Delicious food. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. A very relaxing way to see France.

Disembarkation & embarkation went very smoothly. The crew had very good communication skills and were also just a lot of fun.

My only criticism was the front lounge was far too cold all the time. Someone needed to turn down the air conditioning.

We really enjoyed the included walking tours. Although the optional shore excursions are advertised far more effectively.

While the hotels were beautiful, it wasn’t too encouraging to have a room at the Carlton in Cannes with a view of pipes and dirty standing water.

At the same time the Carlton’s restaurant was terrific. I did not care for the old food caked onto the folding knife provided at the in-room bar. Gross! Seems to be a housekeeping issue. Loved everything about the Paris hotel.
