Avalon Tapestry II wiki

  • The Avalon Tapestry II boat is the 9th 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).
  • Other luxury river cruise lines ships with itineraries on Seine river from Paris France are offered by AmaWaterways (AmaLegro), Avalon Waterways (Creativity), Uniworld (Baroness), Scenic (Gem) and Viking (KadlinRindaRolf).
  • The Avalon cruise ship Tapestry 2 was launch in 2015. The new Tapestry boat’s godmother is Mrs Diana Gabaldon - the famous author of the Outlander novels series. The naming ceremony took place in Les Andelys (Normandy, France) on March 25, 2015. The old "Avalon Tapestry" ship is currently owned by "Premicon AG" and operated as "Travelmarvel Sapphire" (former name "Vienna I").
