Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin:

If you are not German stay away from this ship. We signed up for a Seine cruise with English company Saga who miss sold this cruise. The excursions were in German. The food was advertised as Mediterranean but was German and very low quality. The ship was in need of an upgrade. The officers were grumpy apart from French Captain and First officer who were helpful. Crew were good and helpful. Drinks on premium class were good and free. but whole cruise was about getting extra money out of you. Was meant to be all inclusive but was not. The food service was a mess with different foods all over the place. Drinks service at table was good. Stops were appalling we stopped in two little villages with nothing open one we did an overnight stop when every where was closed. All other cruise lines were going on to Honfleur. We were told we were sailing from Paris but in fact we left from a cement yard in St Denis and never got near Paris in the boat.
