Avalon Poetry II - user reviews and comments

Avalon Poetry II Wiki

  • The Avalon Poetry II boat is the 8th vessel in Avalon Waterways "Suite Ship" class. Among the 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 Waterways "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).
  • Avalon Poetry 2 was launched in 2014 on March 22. It was christened in Dordrecht (Holland) by Drs Katherine Grainger - a British rower, "London Olympic 2012" Gold medalist, also 6-time World Champion and honorary of the "Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" (CBE). The Poetry 2 boat was christened in a joint ceremony - together with the Impression boat.
  • On August 12, 2016, Katherine Grainger won a silver medal at 2016's Rio Olympic Games, making her the UK's most awarded Olympic player. Using the occasion, Avalon Waterways awarded her a free cruise.
