Seine River Cruise ---- Paris to Rouen

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: France
Embarkation: Paris

Given the fact that this was on the lower price end of the other cruise ships for a similar itinerary, it was TOP NOTCH. 5 star * * * * *

The onboard experience reminds me of how "it used to be" in the USA. And for a reasonable price. The boat was amazingly well maintained and CLEAN. The crew was always at work cleaning, painting, or fixing something.

We were in steerage due to late booking but liked it because of less foot traffic outside our cabin and being close to the dining room.

There was one sitting for all meals (lite breakfast and lunch in the lounge). Nice selection and excellent quality of foods. Very well prepared and tasty.

Staff was superb---efficient, kind, and funny. Guests with special dietary needs were looked after as well as anyone with limited mobility.

Yvette our cruise director was awesome----she had a down-to-earth sophistication, was on top of everything, had infinite patience with the "difficult" passengers, and More had a good sense of humor.

The included tours were excellent---the guides knew their stuff and were SO funny and clever.

My husband and I are fit 61 year olds and were on the young side of the 130 passengers. There was one 52 year old who was the "baby." We figure the age range was from late 60's to mid 80's. Mostly American and a lively, fun group.

Fly in at least a day early to get acclimated-----we are SO glad we did. Less
