Review summary

We were somewhat hesitant to start our European travel with a cruise as the "main" feature. This Avalon River cruise through Paris to Normandy was a great experience. The river boat's crew and the clever rooms and cleanliness was well worth the trip. We found good history and friendly people throughout the trip. We would try another river cruise of this type.
