Our river cruise out of Bordeaux on the Gironde estuary was very enjoyable. The crew was exceptionally pleasant. Food was very good, well presented and varied. Wine was included and definitely a step up over what you expect on a cruise. Being an American I particularly enjoyed the interaction with a varied group of European travelers.
The excursions were well thought out and well organized. We only speak English and it was not a problem. The ship is new for 2014 and nicely decorated. Cabins were very comfortable with large windows. Ship size (175 passengers) made all activities easy. The area would be very interesting to wine connoisseurs but there was also many other sights to see and places to visit. The climate is very mild.
This is our second CroisiEurope cruise and hope to do many more.
