Sail Date: May 2015

The hallmark of French cuisine is fresh food that is prepared from the best of ingredients. This ship featured food that had been frozen, canned or refrigerated for an excessive amount of time. The cuts of meat were mediocre in quality. The sauces were not prepared well- they were often heavy and gloppy. Pastries and bread suffered from freezing or over refrigeration and had little or no taste. I guess many people were satisfied because the portions were so large.You get 3 large meals each day. The wines were good. Some of the cheeses were wrapped in foil.

The staff on the boat were excellent. The cabins were arranged well and offered adequate space. One negative was the shower which couldn't be set in a way that didn't flood the bathroom.

I believe that CroisiEurope is trying to make in roads in the U.S. Market. It won't do so unless it improves its food.

Cabin Review

Cabin upper deck

The cabin was good except for the shower. We needed extra towels every day to mop up the bathroom floor.
