MS Loire Princesse

8 days on a Deluxe French Barge

Châteaux of the Loire Valley

July, 2015 took the 8 day cruise on the MS Loire Princesse on the Loire river in France. We had a wonderful time.


Very new vessel – very well designed and extremely clean – plenty of room

Rooms with balconies are especially nice for viewing the scenery during the cruise

The top deck is great to have a drink and watch the world go by

Shower in bath is full size – great water pressure

Convenient plugs (be sure you have a converter)

Food is great – 3 courses at lunch and dinner – including duck, venison, lamb, chicken, veal. Buffet breakfast.

All of the staff was great. They speak English very well.

Great excursions from the boat each day – you can choose which ones to prefer – some are free – some you pay extra for

Be sure to take the organic wine tasting tour


Wifi is available in the rooms, but may not work and can be very slow – to the point that at time it is not very useful

River is unreliable – we were not able to go as far as expected because the river was too low – but there was a bus that took us to the expected spot. I did not feel this was an issue.

I would take the cruise again.

Cabin was well designed - plenty of room and places to 'put' things. shower was full size and very nice. Beds comfortable. We had an outside room with a balcony - would recommend that. Everything was so clean and comfortable.
