Health advisory: All international travelers from the U.S. must be fully vaccinated before boarding an Avalon river cruise. All guests will undergo a health screening upon arrival.

Sailing the Seine, Rhône and Saône rivers, Avalon Tapestry II can glide by centuries-old châteaux and beautiful landscapes in the afternoon, then make an overnight port call at one of Europe’s overlooked gems. Whether tastes favor exploring charming historic neighborhoods and world-class museums, or indulging in France’s sophisticated cuisine and fashions or a city’s vibrant nightlife, Avalon Tapestry II offers even seasoned travelers new opportunity to discover (or rediscover) France.

Cruisers can soak in the rays and take in the view from a lounge chair or whirlpool on the Sky Deck. Or wake each morning to the scenery passing by their suite’s wall-to-wall panoramic windows (the ship’s suites are spacious – at 200 square feet, Avalon says, they’re more than 30 percent larger than industry standard). Dining options include buffets, light al fresco lunches at the Sky Bistro and multi-course dinners.
