Nice trip through the wine country and the South of France.

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: France
Embarkation: Lyon

We booked this trip and it included three nights in Paris and a train ticket to Lyon to board the ship. We have taken 15+ ocean cruises, but this was only our second river cruise. Cabin assignments were not made until we were on the ship! Everyone was welcomed and then assigned a cabin. The crew were great! The cabin was satisfactory, a little "dated" and sparse, but very clean. We were on the middle deck and had a large window that opened. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. Meals were fine; there was lots of variety at breakfast and they would make eggs to order if you asked. There was not much of a selection at lunch, but you could order a hamburger and fries if you did not like the daily offering. At dinner, there were just two choices of entree. The soups were excellent, and the salads and desserts were good. Red and white wines were served with lunch and dinner, but if you wanted a soft drink, you had to buy one.

The ship docked quite near More town so it was an easy walk. We took an optional excusion everyday. They were all interesting EXCEPT for the Carmague Nature Preserve. That was a waste of time and money! If you want to see the Carmague wild animals, you need to walk the paths, not ride by in a bus on the highway! Less
