Avalon Tapestry II Cruise Review by Bluiiz

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

We chose this cruise initially because we were attracted to the itinerary which included Monet and Van Gogh homes and the Normandy beach Memorials. We chose Avalon because the rooms were spacious and bed faced out on sliding doors instead of balconies limiting inside space. We were so pleasantly surprised! All of the cruise employees spoke English, were very pleasant and helpful and spent their day making sure everything was well taken care of. Our cruise director Jean Loup was always available, and coordinated all of the excursions with attention to detail to assure that we arrived early so that we dodged the crowds and all of the guides were knowledgeable and pleasant! To the very last day even when we left the ship he worked tirelessly to make sure all went smoothly! Our room was just as advertised, it and the ship were immaculately clean, the food was outstanding and the ride was smooth as silk! Special shout out to Octavian, Simone, Valentin, and George on the wait staff they were always there if we needed something!

Our only negatives were not against Avalon. France as is much of Europe is not an accessible trip, it is difficult at times to navigate, though Avalon did twice hook us up with so all trolleys which got us to the top of Etratat’ and to the top of Montmartre, which we would have never seen otherwise! And, Paris was like any Metropolitan City difficult on your own (when you are of a certain age).

All in all Thank you Avalon for making our trip the best it could be!

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin P 306

Huge compared to most, sitting area, bed was more comfortable than home, bathrooms were well designed for space as well as shelving to keep all things organized and off the counters. The balconies (sliding doors French) were perfect, breeze and a million great photos, and kept very clean!
