  3. Victor Hugo
We were 4 New Zealanders and we chose this cruise because it was 18 days and at a reasonable price. The cabin was not huge but nicely decorated, clean and a good shower and had a large window. The bed was very comfortable. The Victor Hugo had very recently been refurbished. The food, wine and drinks were fantastic. The meals were amazing Staff were great and the announcement were in French and English. We had a little hiccup with our excursions but that was an error with their NZ agent and was soon rectified. Unfortunately when we were to leave Regensburg a Viking Ship smashed a lock gate which prevented all boats going any further. Because we were to go to Amsterdam on our cruise, Croisi arranged for us to go by minibus to Strasbourg and join another ship the Gerard Schmitter which then completed our cruise to Amsterdam. We were 4 days short of our cruise so Croisi put us up in a hotel all meals included with wine, and we had a guide for 4 days to show us all the sights of Amsterdam which was fantastic. We would definitely do another cruise with this company and hope to in the near future. Brian & Wendy (N.Z)

Cabin Review

Cabin 114
Great. Comfortable bed, good shower, plenty of storage although wardrobe was a bit small. Good viewing window.
