Cabin:

My husband and I chose this cruise because of Hilton, the location of Bordeaux, of course wine and the activities/excursions offered which sounded very active. We had the owners suite which was amazing with the windows opening entirely in both the bedroom and the balcony. The walk in closet was great as was the tub which is a must for me. Enjoyed our sitting room and had guests almost nightly visit us.

The food was okay with moments of very good and others that were just average but I guess in this setting you try to appeal to all. I tend to prefer a little more spice and temperature to my food which isn't always appealing to everyone.

The excursions were great. We especially loved the bikes which we used every day and signed up for all but 1 of the excursions offered where biking was concerned. Wine?! Enjoyed the excursion that involved wine. My husband and I have been to Bordeaux many times by land because of the wine but generally spent the majority of the time outside of the city. It was interesting to explore the city to some degree.
