Sail Date: Sep 2017
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Traveled with two other couples; found the trip fascinating, from the bullet train ride to the daily small group tours through Central and Southern French cities and towns. The river trip itself was fun and relaxing. Our cabin gave us plenty of space, and being able to open our door to the outside made it feel even more expansive. Plenty of room to store everything, and attention from the crew when we needed anything.

The crew was tremendous; wait staff were excellent and the food was very good. Wine served with the lunch/dinners was very good, as well. Our cruise director was energetic and knowledgeable; she painted an excellent picture of the 'next day's' adventures. There was plenty to do, and enough room to enjoy one's privacy, at the same time. We enjoyed everything about the trip. One of the wine tours gave us 'free time' in an extremely small town; very crowded, the bus could not even come to pick us up. This excursion needs some serious re-planning.

Wow! We do not travel frequently, and were prepared for a tiny space. It had plenty of room, and lots of places to store our things. The ability to 'open' the door to the river made it so much more enjoyable.
