Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin:

We made a quick decision to book Vantage's Best of Burgundy, Beaujolais, and Provence based on the itinerary, timing, and excellent deal Vantage offered. Because this trip will not be offered by Vantage next season, I've decided to focus my review on the ship itself as well as the crew and our overall experience with Vantage Deluxe World Travel.

We had limited contact with Vantage after booking because we only had a few weeks before sailing. My one phone call to them to get a few questions answered was handled very well by the representative on the line. Our included air was set up well, with good connection times without any overly long layovers.

The River Discovery II is a 4 year old ship that is kept very clean and compares favorably with higher-end (and higher priced) ships of other lines. Staterooms are well conceived, with good showers, ample storage, and a table and chairs set up to enjoy the passing view in our French balcony room. Wifi and a tv with many channels and daily itinerary information added to our enjoyment.

Cabin Review

Cabin French Balcony

The cabin was very well set up. It is aft on the middle deck, and so makes a more lengthy walk to get to the dining room and lounge, although as with any river cruise ship one isn't too far from anything.
