Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on River Chanson

WillIEverUseThisAgain
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My husband suggested we do a cruise, and I was leery about an ocean cruise (I don't want to be seasick!), but my mom had told me that river cruises are very smooth. We did the Grand Circle Travel river cruise from Paris to Nice. We actually took a bus from Paris to Lyon, where the ship was docked. The food! We were offered so much food! The first night was the captain's welcome dinner and the ...

The Seine: Paris to Normandy River Cruise Tour

We did the France river cruise going south from Lyon to Nice years ago. We had excellent experience with it & really enjoyed, so we like to go on this cruise to see the northern part of France, mainly the history rich region of Normandy including the D-Day beaches in WII. We really enjoyed everything from service to itineraries if this cruise as well, specially worthy to mention our program ...

Our First River Cruise

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on River Harmony

mjwallis
2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

Initially, this cruise was chosen for its value--an exceptional offer was made that our cruising buddies noted and we followed through by booking the cruise as well as the pre-trip in Switzerland. We had wanted to go on a larger, better-known cruise line. We were not disappointed in the Grand Circle Cruise Line. The river boat River Harmony that holds 140 passengers was beautiful and had all ...

We are signed up for a river cruise this September (Eastern Europe to the Black Sea) to join friends that cruise regularly with GCCL and love it. This river cruise (The Seine - Normandy to Paris on the M/S Bizet) came up in a marketing email from GCCL. We made a quick decision to take this river cruise to see what we may be experiencing on the M/S Aria river cruise this fall. Pros - A river ...

Our first river cruise with friends who had done 4 other river cruises.we spent two days in Nice , traveled to the ship to geton in Arles, stopped in Avignon, Viviers, and two days in lyon.

Exploring Europe, the rivers and the history

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on River Aria

2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

I had never experienced this part of Europe, and I wanted to know more about the history and the people. My brother and sister-in-law invited me to join them on this adventure. The Program Director was very knowledgeable and communicated well. His concern for each of us was apparent. Michal related historical events and people that had influenced the growth and development of the Netherlands, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I have heard so many good things about Grand Circle Tours River Cruises I just had to join my friends. This was a trip of a life time, so many wonderful sights to see and things to do, there was just not enough time in the day to do it all. Not only the sights from the ship and the day trips our tour guides made all of out day trips extra special and personal. Hats off to our guides Niki, Bob and ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

I chose this cruise because it was one I had not been on and it was a good price. Because of a problem with the airline I completely missed Nice ,which was a big disappointment..through no fault of Grand Circle. When I finally arrived GC had a car and driver waiting and whisked me away to Arles to the ship. So I didn't miss any of the cruise. The ship crew was amazing! Our guide , Kevin was ...

The cruise is good but beware of your air arrangements

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on River Adagio

lilybaby99
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Some friends suggested this cruise and since I had never river cruised before I thought I give it a shot. The cruise staff was exceptional and made the trip delightful. My program director Szabe Borberly was outstanding and salvaged the trip for us. I score the cruise a solid 9 as many other cruise companies were at the same ports and it created some congestion with our daily tours. I consider ...

The Amazing Mosel and Rhine

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on River Harmony

Markesan45
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

In 2000, I had driven alongside the Mosel (from Koblenz to Trier) and the Rhine north of Koblenz, and at the time I promised myself I'd go back and do the trip on the rivers...so this trip on River Harmony was a long-awaited fulfillment of that promise to myself, and this trip on the rivers did not disappoint! The Mosel was especially lovely, as was the pre-trip extension in Lucerne, during which ...
