A very enjoyable cruise on a well presented and managed ship. My wife has been reluctant to cruise and this was her first. At the end of the cruise she was speaking about the next. What made this very enjoyable was the small ship concept which made for a very pleasant uncrowded time on-board ship - we had 240 passengers with all cabins taken. A good mix of nationalities. The staff were attentive and efficient. As you would expect from a French ship the food was excellent and lived up to what you would expect from any good French restaurant. While the whole ship had an open bar, the selection of French wines in the restaurants could have been better. The ship's public areas were well appointed and not crowded. The cabin was spacious, modern and well appointed with a very usable balcony. The on-shore excursions were well organised and informative. Of course, there were some ports where doing your own thing was appealing.
