Review summary

We have done a couple large ship cruises which were ok. We did a "barefoot" cruise on a small sailing ship that was a lot of fun and 22 years ago did a river cruise on Viking. That cruise was great, but the ship was not nearly as nice as the Tapestry II. We loved the Avalon atmosphere and vibe and will definitely do another river cruise with Avalon.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
we had an upgrade to the 3rd floor room 314 (?). It was a large room with a full bath and shower. Loved the full sliding window/wall.

Ship tip

Be sure to check out the rear lounge

Ports of call

Paris, France

Vernon, France

Giverny was fabulous! Loved seeing the gardens.

Rouen, France

5 out of 5
Visited the U.S. landing sights. The museum with historical films was very moving. Wish there had been time to do the "taste of Normandy" tour as well. Several people in our group complained that we did not have enough time to visit the landing sights and cemetery.

Le Havre (Paris), France

5 out of 5
We did the optional excursion to Honfleur which was wonderful. I would have preferred to spend more time here and less in Le Havre.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
well organized and easy
