New and attractive ship

By: Misha


Reviewed on: 23 Sep 2015

Overall the ship is quite pleasing and well designed for its intended service area. The Tapestry II is just perfect for the narrow locks it must negotiate. It is also well equipped to dock alongside one or more similar cruise ships, something which happened more than once, The new cabins are bright and well equipped. Plumbing and lighting worked well. On the down side, the TV system was clunky. My remote had constant problems communicating with the set. On-screen menus were clumsy to use. The ship could use a few minor safety upgrades. The railings serving the rear stairs from the upper deck to the second deck are not properly designed for safety. My wife was almost afraid to use these stairs. The forward stairs seemed alright. There is little to no rain protection anywhere on the upper deck. This we discovered when our safety drill had to be cancelled when the passengers were rained upon. There should be at least a small area where people could take cover.

Avalon achieved all our needs and exceeded expectations. Staff, and particularly the cruise director, Tony Jenkins, was completely knowledgeable, controlled this charge with excellence, all within a friendship environment. We would highly recommend Avalon.Well done Avalon.

we took back to back - Grand France cruises on Tapestry and Poetry this spring. We were blessed to have Katy as our cruise director on both legs of our journey. She is energetic, informative, knowledgeable and a truly delightful host and adviser. Lucien in the Tapestry dinning room is phenomenal ... what a great gentleman and polished server and ambassador for Avalon. Petra was a great delight in the dinning room on the Poetry. Our room stewards on both cruises were superb (Room 315) We had several "glitches" with our cruise including "high water", strikes and itinerary changes but the crew managed and course-corrected effortlessly. It is too bad that river cruising has adopted the double docking practice as it seriously spoils viewing the river and the shorelines.

All the outstanding food, destinations and service found on the few outstanding river cruise lines. What set this trip apart, was the crew and staff. Uniformly pleasant and helpful, with no one making themselves the issue, even for a moment.

Avalon far exceeded our expectations. Service, food, beverages (wine, beer. Champagne) crew, cruise director were superior. The boat was immaculate from start to finish. The crew were busy, busy, bees; working all the time. They were very attentive but they did not hover. I would definitely recommend Avalon AND would definitely consider another trip using Avalon.
