New to the legendary waters of Europe in 2014, the Avalon Poetry II offers a delightfully intimate cruise setting along the Rhine, Main, and Danube Rivers. Like its sister ships, the Avalon Artistry II and Avalon Visionary, the Poetry II features two full decks of suites featuring Wall-to-Wall Panoramic Windows that transform the living space into a unique Open-Air Balcony. With 200 square feet, Panorama Suites are more than 30% larger than the industry standard, giving you the rare opportunity to wake each morning to the enchanting scenery and fresh breezes. Onboard amenities include an alternative dining option in the Panorama Bistro, complimentary Wi-Fi access, an expanded fitness center, and a spacious Sky Deck with premium lounge chairs, whirlpool, and light al fresco lunches at the open-air bistro.
