Chose this cruise for (1) all inclusive and no nickel and diming us; (2) biking excursions to offset the awesome French food, and (3) size of ship with 174 passengers. A+ on all 3 reasons for going with CroisiEurope, and specifically the biking excursion alternative. Cabin and services were good, finding more room than I anticipated. Also appreciated that our window fully opened to watch as we traveled the rivers. Food was divine for lunch and dinner - 3 and 4 courses for each of these meals. Their ability to adapt and provide alternatives to dislikes was immediate! We got to really know almost all the servers! Breakfast croissants and pain au chocolat were deadly good! French eggs and bacon would be considered uncooked, but asked them for "well done". Biking excursions with Dig N Go was the only way to see this region. We were biking through quintessential French country roads and in between vineyards!!! Bikes accommodated us short people, which was a worry. Started out too fast-paced for what we expected, but the group pace slowed down significantly toward the end, accommodating our desire for photos of everything. Our guides Martin, Sam and Philippe were very helpful and knowledgeable about where we were. Highlight for us - St. Emilion and Arcachon/Cap Ferrat rides! Everything was included! Apero as we waited for dinner to start! Wine and oyster tasting - all included. I absolutely loved that fact! Would pick a CroisiEurope trip again! I can't find enough superlatives! Read Less

I got off the Coisieurope boat two days ago. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Jerome, purser, and Golo spoke English well enough that we generally understood each other. All staff worked very hard and usually had a smile although most spoke no English. The cabin was,modern and well designed and except the shower. It was hand held. There was no way to use it without flooding the bathroom. We always got extra towels in order sop up the water and not slip. Still, I slipped and got a bruise on my face and one on my knee. Very few of the passengers spoke English. Announcements were in French with a one minute translation. The food service was a major problem for me. Breakfast was a buffet which was rarely refilled. Thus, you had to go early to get eggs. We were aware that there was no choice for lunch or dinner when we booked this river cruise. Both lunch and dinner were four course hot meals. Portions were very large, usually drowning in gravy. Special requests could be made before each meal. I got chicken the first night and it was fine. I ordered the same thing the second night and it tasted like it was reheated from the night before . After that, I ordered cheese and fruit for almost every meal. An English speaking lady at our table called the food passable . All of this was particularly disappointing because I expected better from a French cruise company. Wine was good and you could get as much as you wanted. The bar was open all day. Most alcohol was included in the fare. Perhaps the French liked the food. I don't know. We chose this company on our own. They are trying to become known in the American market. I would never go again with this company. Read Less
