Avalon Scenery Overview

The Scenery joined the Avalon fleet in April 2008 introducing the line's Scenery class. It's smaller than its predecessors, carrying just 138 passengers in 67 cabins and two suites. The ship is designed for rivers that cannot accommodate larger vessels and spends its time plying the waters of the Rhone and Saone Rivers between Chalon-sur-Saone and Arles.
