Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony
Pretty city of Beune, France - heart of wine tasting
Departure port of Burgundy-Provence trip
Wine tasting in Chateau

Our friends that are wine connoisseurs wanted to tour region. We wanted to see Monaco but this trip did not end up there as the brochure stated when we booked.

We enjoyed all the stops and seeing so many wonderful places., especially the small, quaint little towns and unusual things like "Garden of Eden," organ concert in cathedral, wine tasting in a chateau, etc.....

We also liked the French Balcony with views of the towns and countryside, however, it seemed that half the time we were double and triple docked with NO view. Did not like that part 'Wish river portion was longer.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Cabin B

Nice, rooms plenty big enough, loved views out of windows, but did not like being double and triple docked with NO view half the time.

Port Reviews


Not as exciting as hoped for. Tour of palace underwhelming


Garden of Eden was great and organ concert also.


It was okay, a carnival set up right outside docking area and had to walk through that to get to city. Interesting town.
