We chose this cruise based on previous reviews and talking to the staff in Massachusetts directly. The service, wines, cheeses, and varied menus daily were all 5 stars! During the week we experienced 18 different cheeses at lunch and dinner as well as 22 different wines from the region. I had a birthday onboard and they went out of their way to make it super special including all of my favorites for dinner. Fresh pastries from a local bakery were brought in each morning. The cabin was very comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed. We especially liked the shower and heated towel rack. Hot water was abundant and unlimited bottled water appeared in your cabin. Though you never saw the hostesses go in and out of the staterooms, the cabin was always kept tidy. The crew knew our names from the get go and were always very attentive and friendly. There were enough bicycles onboard for cycling. The countryside was just as we thought it would be -- maybe better! The slow pace was enjoyable.We thought this would be a once in a lifetime adventure, but we now think we are going to do it again!!! Read Less

We cruised for 6 nights upon the luxurious and warm setting of the barge Adrienne. We were picked up from Paris, France and driven to Dijon on a private luxury bus which followed the barge for subsequent excursions. We were welcomed aboard by 6 fabulous, humorous, and charming crew. All the cabins were similar in set up with either twin or king bed, writing area, and marble bathroom with Bulgari toiletries. Food was incredible. Prepared by a masterful chef, Frederic, each dish was presented to us highlighting preparation, regional ingredients etc. Lunch and Dinner included wine tastings and cheese tastings. We travelled off the boat in the morning on foot or on bicycle, strolling along the pastoral farm lands near the canal, popping into small villages or wineries. After lunch, we were shuttled to various regional highlights, Beaune, Chalon sur Saone, medieval castles, and ancestral homes. Crew: Louise, Camille, Charles, Loic, Frederic and our Captain, Anna. Enough cannot be said about how quickly they made us feel at home and comfortable. Because we travelled with teenagers, Anna accomodated some changes and found an amazing excursion in Givry called Acrogivry. The teens proclaimed it the highlight of their trip to France! We dined at the Lameloise restaurant where we were delighted by the creative cuisine. On final day, we were taken to TGV and delivered safely back to Paris. Don't hesitate to join the Adrienne!
