My wife and I have never fancied an ocean cruise but saw an advert for the Burgundy, River Rhone and Provence cruise which took our fancy as we had several French holidays with our children many years ago. The cruise was everything we hoped for despite the poor weather. We booked a deluxe suite on Diamond deck and this was as large as many of the hotel rooms we have had over the years. The only drawback, if there was one, was that no suite/cabin on Lord Byron has a full balcony, but our suite had a full-size sliding door which we could open and enjoy the views.

The reception area was excellent as were the lounge, restaurant and lido bar/restaurant. There was also a small boutique, steam room, sauna and hairdresser's. The sun deck had plenty of loungers, a giant chess board, a putting green and small splash pool/Jacuzzi.

Breakfasts were buffets (hot and cold) with plenty of choices plus waiter service full English, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs etc. Lunches were also buffets with once again plenty of choices. Dinners were waiter service 4 courses (6 on the gala night). All of the food was first rate.
