Natalie Pompilio

Designed to navigate France's Seine River, Bizet is a 366-foot-long riverboat with three decks designed to navigate France's Seine River. It can accommodate 120 passengers.

All 60 nonsmoking cabins have a river view. The cabins have immovable twin beds that convert to sofas, individual climate controls, radios, in-room safes, and flat-screen TVs offering CNN, movies and a view from the bow camera. Those on the middle/Soprano Deck have private balconies and floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors. All cabins are 160 square feet; that includes a balcony of 16 square feet for the Soprano Deck cabins. Each cabin has a private bath with shower and hair dryer. Single supplement fees range from $42 to $50 per day.

Shipboard features include a dining room with single open seating, complimentary tea and coffee all day, a bar and lounge area and a sun deck. Onboard activities differ based on which route the ship takes. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the ship, including in cabins. There is no elevator or fitness room. Wine and beer are included at dinner.

Passengers tend to be Americans over 50. The majority are couples; the line says one in four passengers travel solo. (A roommate-matching service is available.) Guests are generally well traveled and many are repeat cruisers.

Wonderful variety of destinations, from small, lovely villages and towns to beaches and history at Normandy

The guides, especially Serge Leboucher who was the pre-trip guide and our main guide for the cruise as well as Geraldine and Lulu were helpful, attentive and efficient, and had vast knowledge of history, the towns, and France in general.The history of France, ancient kings, and important events in Rouen was emphasized by the guides and interesting.Read More
