1st cruise after 600+ days of pause - excellent!

Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to France

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We saw this 3 night cruise advertised at a very good price as it was the first cruise the ship was to make after 600+ days of ‘pause’. We realised that there could be problems but in fact they were very few. We booked cabin 10054. This was a Princess Grill grade cabin. We had previously crossed the Atlantic twice in a PG cabin - although it was 10 years ago. We were asked to check in at ...

Review for La Belle Epoque to France

La Belle Époque was our first barge cruise and we have already booked another one! The crew was incredibly friendly, professional, and attentive. Service was just outstanding! The food and wines were first class with a chef that always amazed us with his creativity. With only 8 guests, all aspects (touring, dinning, etc) of the barging experience could be personalized. We were also fortunate ...

A memorable four nights on the Seine - Le Havre to Paris

Review for Renoir to France

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had never been on a European river cruise before and chose this one for its brevity, just four nights. We were very happy with our choice and heartily recommend Croisieurope to travelers seeking affordable luxury plus top-flight service. The Renoir was refurbished to a very high standard in 2018 and it shows—comfortable beds, a ship-shape bathroom, lots of clever storage, individual climate ...

Fantastic leisurely food and wine cruise

We traveled on the barge La Belle Epoque owned by European Waterways from August 8th through August 14th. On this trip we travel from Tanly to Venary-Les-Laumes. From the time we were picked up in Paris on Sunday morning at about 1300 until we were dropped back off in Paris on Saturday afternoon the whole trip was absolutely fantastic. We were met in Paris by our tour guide Mathias who drove ...

Arcadia mini cruise. A very enjoyable experience on a lovely ship!

Review for Arcadia to France

User Avatar
2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

We chose this ship because we have a world cruise booked on her in January 2020 (she was the only P&O ship available for a world cruise). We wanted to test the water so to speak by booking this 3 day mini cruise where we had the same cabin we have booked on the world cruise. We were very pleasantly surprised, Arcadia is a lovely ship, smaller in size than we are accustomed to but we actually ...

The “Poop” deck!

Review for Scenic Diamond to France

User Avatar
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Scenic asked for our opinion after our first ever cruise. Here it is. The Bordeaux Affair was a fabulous cruise experience except for the total failure of the sanitation system on the ship, and partial for the remainder of the week. This failure was complete at times (leaving cabin toilets full of waste and no working toilets at all for an ENTIRE DAY). Sometimes the blockage was partial, ...

Would not take further Uniworld cruises and would not recommend

Review for S.S. Catherine to France

User Avatar
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Many of the advertised facilities and amenities on the Lyon to Avignon cruise on Uniworld's SS Catherine were not provided. When I embarked on the cruise, the suites and staterooms were not ready until 3.00pm and the only toilet/washroom facilities were those located adjacent to the ship's reception area. The washroom and its two toilets were filthy with wet floors, no toilet paper and towels, ...

Review for Royal Clipper to France

User Avatar
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We just returned from a Cannes to Cannes cruise which stopped at ports in Italy, Corsica and Sardinia with excursions to Pisa and Mt. Carbonne in Elba among other offerings. This was our 1st Clipper cruise but we will sign up for another without a doubt. With about 200 passengers, a 3rd from the US and the rest from Europe mainly, it was easy and comfortable meeting each other especially ...

Lovely Loire

Review for Loire Princesse to France

User Avatar
6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

This river cruise exceeded our expectation. We participated in all the "optional" excursions which added greatly to our enjoyment. It would not have been the same trip without them. All were interesting and for the most part unique except for the "cruise" on the Erdre River which we found to be beautiful but not any more beautiful than other rivers of its ilk. Furthermore, the outing ...
