When Volcanic ash stopped air traffic to and from Europe, we were on Uniworld's River Baroness sailing from Paris to Normandy and back on the Seine. Since our flight home had been cancelled, it was an easy decision to repeat the week, again aboard the River Baroness as we so enjoyed the initial week.
It is difficult to describe how wonderfully managed the cared for this boat really is. The crew is great in every way. Caring, warm, friendly, and never, ever did I see or detect an "attitude". They work hard but do not complain and are eternally cheerful.
One can't think of a better place to be for two weeks and that is without talking about the scenery, tours, and all of the other wonderful things that go on on this itinerary.
It is truly a memorable trip which includes Paris, the Normandy Beaches and the American Cemetery, a visit to Giverny and Monet's home and famous gardens, a stop at Honfleur, where Impressionists often painted, and two days in Rouen, a beautiful city with many interesting attractions, great shopping, and excellent restaurants. All that in a week? What could be better...two weeks!
Our cabin was on the upper deck. It was small but efficient. Once you figured out where all the storage spots were, it was quite easy to store everything. The bathroom too was small but worked just fine.
I personally think the bed could have been softer or better but other than that, no complaints.
