Sail Date: Jan 2016

Where does one start? Well, first of all the welcome at the airport followed by a sumptuous champagne breakfast by the side of the river before being taken to the ship. What strikes one first of all is the amazing smiles of all around, nothing is ever too much for them without being too over the top, it comes naturally to them and is not "forced".

The ship is modern but classic at the same time, very fresh, welcoming and in a world of its own. The young lady who took us to our cabin was most informative without taking too much time about the formalities. The cabin is sheer luxury, view of the river, spacious and most of all an amazing bed... if one hadn't come for the sight seeing experience too one could stay all day in bed, it is so so comfortable. A wonderful touch was that we had a little present every evening on our beds, what a delightful surprise, be it a puppet, a lacquer bowl, such a refined touch.

The meals on board were out of this world, from breakfast to lunch, a mix of Asian but also European, tasty, all together what you would expect, and more, on a luxury ship of this calibre. The décor on the deck as well as the traditional dining room make you feel special without being over the top, just pure class. The only "problem" is don't expect to go on a diet whilst you are on board, everything is far too tempting... well for three days one has to make the most of it all!

Cabin Review

Cabin deluxe cabin

We did not have a suite but the cabin was spacious, well equipped. The bed so comfortable and large. View over the river and a charming bathroom with nice Roger and Gallet products. The décor is very tasteful and fresh. A nice restful room.
