Well, we did sail about 2 kilometers up the Seine, one night. The advertised cruise in the other direction to Notre Dame was cancelled at the last minute!! The ship was fine, anchored near the Tour Eiffel. The 2 tours were excellent; a coach trip round the major sites and the following morning a walk through Montmatre. We had the same knowledgeable guide on both days. He was superb. BUT the meals were 'limited'. After a freezing tour all we wanted / needed was hot soup. The lunch offering was a cold starter. I accept they did provide one bowl of soup but a little forward thinking might have avoided us needing to make a special request. Our main issue was they charged for all drinks - yes even coffee after your meal. NOT what they advertise on their cruise pages. To find this 'limited drinks' information you really have to snoop around. We had to buy Drinks Cards for 30 euros. We enjoyed the visit but would not book with them again... too much small print!!!!! Read Less

Overall the cruise on the Seine was very pleasant. The food was very good. We got a good bottle of wine on our table for dinner every night. We wished there was more "cruising" involved, but in actuality, the distance from Paris to Honfleur is not that great. My only real criticism was the lounge scene and the entertainment. For starters, it's nice to have a bartender with at least some personality. The person on our cruise had none. She was Russian and had the personality of a prison guard. I was almost getting afraid to ask her for a beer. The worst thing by far was the "entertainment". As a passenger, I was disappointed. As a musician, I was horrified. There was a Hungarian couple who had a fancy Roland keyboard that had pre-programmed music on it. He admitted to me that he could not play the piano. The girl had a guitar that she admitted she could not play. However, that didn't not stop them. They simply pressed a button to start playing one of their pre-programmed songs and, if you can believe this, they stood there and pretended to be playing the music. The girl actually held the guitar (which wasn't amplified, so you could not hear it even if she was playing) and pretended to play it. Also, like the bartender, they were completely lacking in personality. They never said a word to the audience, ever! Read Less

We have traveled four continents and 13 countries so far. Some more than once. My wife is a Horticulteralist, I am a Real Estate executive, and an elected (Port Commissioner) official. We traveled from Seattle (USA) by way of Reykjavik to Paris. We spent 3 days, 2 nights at a hotel in Kilometre zero when we arrived in Paris. Perfect location to start and finish each day. Once onboard, we realized again that there is nothing like sailing for days and hundreds of miles while bringing your full service hotel with you. Everything was perfect. A well trained crew, very engaging and entertaining. A large selection of day trips and tours. Very relaxing, almost forgot to go home. The ship was setup with WiFi, and onboard services to help in many ways, and was kept in immaculately clean condition. Our shore excursions were informative, entertaining, refreshing and kept the excitement of the travel alive. Our cabin was perfect, quiet, and clean. Dining was done to perfection at each meal, had plenty to eat and didn't gain a kilo. The deembarkment was fun and memorable as well. We are already planning our 2017 cruise with Croisi. Read Less

This is a brief comment about a past experience I had a few months ago from Paris. My best description to this experience is that we got what we paid for. Me and my wife had sailed with some other River Cruise Lines. We had paid much more for our previous sailings,with some of the other competitors ( AMA, AVALON, EMERALD) just to mention some of the ones we have used in the past. Overall experience: O.k. Great food, drinks included almost 24/7, staff is friendly and although the english is not their primary language, we had no issues communicating and mainly because we can communicate in other languages. Ship is dated and this is what we would like to mention. Big French Company with more than 40 Ships but probably 75% of the fleet is not updated and need some kind of retrofit. The Company seems to be very focused in the European market and of course, to the French but they may have to think outside the box, if they wish to penetrate the US Market. I live in the States but my brother made the reservation in Europe. However, I tried to get some feedback from CE with some local agencies in the US and I was surprised of learning that the agents didn't know much about it and the few ones who have some minor knowledge, didn't feel to comfortable in recommending the Company and its products. Final words. You can use this Company if you are looking for a budget Company. Way far from an Premium, Luxury and Contemporary Company. Read Less

This cruise was a convenient short cruise out of Paris. The ship was clean, well maintained and attractive. The lounge and sun deck had ample space for socializing and viewing the scenery. The food choices were limited to chef's choice rather than a full menu at lunch and dinner, but what was served was delicious, plated in a lovely fashion and served with excellent service. Dietary restrictions could be accommodated. This cruise offers complementary wine and drinks which is a great value. The quality of the complimentary wines was so good that we never felt the need to upgrade to premium choices. Also, the complimentary wine varied at each meal to carefully pair with the cuisine of the meal. The breakfast buffet had a full variety of choices to suit any palate or diet. The shore excursions were included in the price of the cruise. On this itinerary there was scenic cruising in the morning through bucolic villages in Normandy. Then there was an afternoon excursion. The guides hired for the excursions were all knowledgeable and passionate. While we were 2 of 4 native English speakers on the cruise, most of the staff spoke English and we never felt excluded or lacking in information. There was also a TV channel in English so that we could read about the days activities. In fact the staff went out of their way to ensure that we were included in all activities. There were amusing games in the lounge before lunch and dinner as well as evening activities. The gala dinner was fabulous and made for a memorable birthday celebration for us. Overall a lovely experience and excellent value. We will definitely travel with CroisiEurope again! Read Less
