Avalon Impression - user reviews and comments

Avalon Impression Wiki

Impression is fleet's 6th vessel from Avalon's "Suite Ship" class. Among boats'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 Impression riverboat was launched on March 22, 2014. It was christened in Dordrecht (Holland) by Mara DelliPriscoli - President of "Travel Learning" (non-profit organization hosting the "Educational Travel Conferences" / seminars for travel and tour operators, planners-suppliers partnerships, training, destination markets analyses, etc). The Impression boat was christened in a joint ceremony – together with Poetry 2.
