Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin:

A couple of things first. Checked Paris for embarkation but it was actually Vernon which is about an hour south of Paris but not on the list. Secondly this trip was supposed to consist of two parts, the cruise itself and the pre cruise excursion I booked to the south of France which comprised 5 of the 12 actual days of travel. Both were purchased thru Vantage and thus are reviewed together.

As to the cruise portion, getting picked up & eventually dropped off at De Gaulle went very smoothly. The cabin itself as noted below was fine but a word to the wise, if you happen to have a problem with stairs as I do you might ask for a cabin on a higher deck as the elevator is small and slow but certainly did work. Not a criticism just, a tip to make things smoother.

The food was fine, this is not an ocean cruise so the amount of the food etc. is not excessive but it was sufficient and tasty.

Cabin Review

Cabin Single

Can't remember my cabin number but it was clean and well cared for and as I travel alone it was certainly of decent size. Only drawback was that it was on the lowest deck so that when docked the view out the porthole was often blocked by the pier itself.
