Avalon Expression - user reviews and comments

Avalon Expression Wiki

Expression is the 5th boat from Avalon's "Suite Ship" class. Among ship's best features are 2 full decks of Suite cabins (each with wall-to-wall sliding windows and French Balcony) and spacious and diverse public venues (each with full-length floor-ceiling windows).

Each Avalon "Suite Ship" is powered by two Caterpillar Marine diesel engines (model C32 ACERT, total power output 1420 kW / 1930 HP), plus an emergency diesel generator. The ship's propulsion is diesel-electric, with one azimuth thruster (at the bow) and a "Silent Drive System" (separating the ship's engines from passenger staterooms).

The Expression riverboat was launched on May 6, 2013. It was christened in Koblenz (Germany) by Mrs. Patricia Schultz - co-author of Berlitz travel guides and a bestselling travel books author of the "1,000 Places to See Before You Die" series (including the "USA-Canada" and "Germany-Austria-Switzerland" themed).
