Chose this cruise as it was offered through Aldi and on offer. Went with my dad (he is 55 an I am 28) and it catered very well for us both. I didn't have any previous experiences and therefore didn't know what to expect but nevertheless everything was up to standard in terms of rooms, services, food, staff, and activities. The only negative thing would be the prices of the shore excursions. They are sadly way too high for everyday people like us! But with a bit of time and effort, you can plan a good day out on your own using public transport, booking tickets in advance and so on. Even the paid shuttles to and from the city (e.g. in Marseilles) are overly priced (23USD$ pp for a 20 minute round trip). And sadly, we fell for the "the free services are unreliable" trap. According to our dinner table friends, it was anything BUT unreliable. But, in general good trip and can highly recommend,

Great experience!

Cabin Review

Cabin 6556
Very good and well maintained. Staff come to clean 3 times a day which I personally find a bit over the top.
