View From My Cabin

Updated: Sep 7, 2023

Seine River Cruise - Avalon Waterways - Spring of '23

Hello, my travelers! Today I want to keep sharing my amazing experience during a river cruise I took in May, and the views from my cabin.

I had the pleasure of traveling with Avalon Waterways on their Active Discovery on the Seine River cruise. I stayed in Cabin 207, which was a breathtaking Panorama Suite. I absolutely love river cruising, and this river cruise is often an overlooked gem. The views from the river are absolutely beautiful.

Check out the video below to see more details on the views I had on my river cruise:

One of the most incredible aspects of a river cruise is the stunning scenery that unfolds before your eyes as you glide along the rivers. Honestly - that is my favorite part: gazing out of the balcony watching the world drifting by. However, it's important to note that the view isn't always picture-perfect, and that's okay.

During the journey, I found it fascinating to witness various landscapes, including industrial areas that revealed a different side of the region. Passing through locks is always interesting. Being berthed in an area of town that isn’t necessarily touristy also allows you to observe people going about their daily lives which is always cool to see.

On your river cruise sometimes your view might be of other ships or less captivating scenes. But here's the thing: that's perfectly normal, and change is constant - it won't be your view for long. I created this video to give you a realistic idea of what you might encounter.
