Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Europe River

Firstly a disclaimer this is our first river cruise although we have done a number of cruises on small ships Azamara, Oceana.

We embarked in Arle and then went downstream 1 hour to the Camarge. The active excursion by bike was great.

Day 2 back to Arle ( where we had independently spent a day) the excursion was great hiking up a limestone mountain and seeing a Van Gogh audiovisual presentation inside a building with images projected onto limestone.

Day 3 meandered upstream to Avignon and went to an amazing chocolate factory.

So overall the excursions were good to great..

The food was not impressive compared to the other small cruise ships we had been on. One meal the menu offering was a rack of lamb but this turned out to be 2 lamb chops. Several passengers asked the waiter for the rest of their rack of lamb.

The cabin we chose the highest level stateroom was nice.

Entertainment on board was very limited. One night they had a great group of performers with spanish guitar, and 2 dancers.
