This river cruise ship design features almost 50% "French Balcony" staterooms. Suite accommodations have each a French Balcony in the seating area, plus a large floor-to-ceiling window. Each of these ships is equipped with two Caterpillar Marine diesel engines (type "C32 ACERT", total power output 1420 kW / 1930 HP). The ship's propulsion is diesel-electric, with an azimuth thruster and an SDS ("Silent Drive System" separating the ship's engines from passenger staterooms).
  • The Avalon cruise ship Felicity was launched in 2010 on March 27. It was christened in Volendam (Holland) by mrs Measha Brueggergosman - Canadian opera singer (soprano) and concert artist with both classical and pop music performances.
