CroisiEurope's Botticelli, a 151-passenger vessel based on the Seine, operates on one of Europe's most famous rivers.

At 360 feet long, Botticelli is the smaller version of CroisiEurope's other three-deck European ships. However, instead of providing the same ratio of cabins in relation to the size, the line has reduced the number of staterooms on Botticelli to provide more spacious public areas.

There are 75 cabins, which are situated on the main and upper decks. They all have floor-to-ceiling picture windows and include wide-screen TVs, hair dryers, safes and air-conditioning.

In addition to the two cabin decks, there's also a sun deck, and other public areas include a panoramic lounge and bar.

CroisiEurope places a lot of emphasis on its French heritage, and meals onboard are inspired by France's culinary tradition. Three-course lunches and dinners feature many of the country's classic dishes. Alain Bohn, the company's head chef, is a member of the gastronomic culinary association Maitres Cuisiniers de France, which champions French food and drink.

CroisiEurope has introduced an all-inclusive "open bar," and fares now include complimentary drinks from the bar in addition mineral water, fruit juice and coffee during the day and house wine, beer and drinks with meals. It excludes Champagne and drinks on the wine list.

We loved our cruise of Paris & the Seine Valley

After I booked the cruise, I found out this CroisiEurope boat was smaller which was great--we did a dinner cruise around Paris before we left which was beautiful with no issues going under the bridges.The menu was a set menu (they do ask if you have any allergies or food preferences prior the cruise) and we found the french cuisine absolutely delicious with good size portions very nicely presented.Read More

Not what I expected

Cruise line is obviously for French speaking people, meals were set menus with no choice, seating was determined by staff at the beginning and that was your table for all three meals per day for the whole cruise.No, I won't be travelling with them again, I don't care how cheap they are.Read More
