Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

I chose this cruise because of the interactive events, Bike Riding, hiking, wine tasting in a cave, wine tasting and hiking, wine tasting and bike riding, helicopter ride over the South of France visiting the enchanting port cities along the Rhone River.

Also because of the ship size there was an intimate # of guests on the cruise. I met some really incredible people I know call friends.

The off ship excursions were wonderful. Experiencing activities that I would not have access to with out being on this marvelous cruise. Bike Riding to the Salt Marshes and viewing the Birds in the Sanctuary there. Bike riding to Pont du Gard then wine tasting, Kayaking and canoeing was so refreshing! Visiting the Chateau Montmfia, taking a tour of their facilities and seeing the surrounding countryside was magical.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with French Balcony

Cabin B

The cabin was really nice. I was impressed by the size of the bathroom, not cramped at all.

The beds were very comfortable. I loved that the windows opened all the way so we could enjoy the scenery as we sailed. Zonka did a marvelous job of having our room always neat and tidy. It was wonderful after a long day of wine tasting and activities to be able to drop into bed as it was always turned down and ready for slumber when we were.

Port Reviews


Arles is a beautiful town. Fascinating history. Van Gogh Museum is here. We painted in the style of Van Gogh in an art studio in the old town
