We sailed with Avalon a few months ago on the Poetry II. Highlight for us was the open air balcony/bedroom you see to your left. We could relax in our room and watch the vineyards of Burgundy and the quaint towns in Provence travel past us each day. It was magical! We loved our experience on Avalon.
