We chose this cruise for the destination--Paris to Normandy, and for the quality of the food, wine, service, day excursions and entertainment...all excellent. All of the crew were gracious all of the time to passengers, taking the extra step to make everything wonderful for each of us. Day excursions went to important places and were planned well--coordinated buses, excellent knowledgeable tour guides who were locals and well informed. Most all days there was a choice of 2 or 3 different excursions, all interesting. Electric assist bikes were available at many ports along with a brief lesson for those who can ride a bike but never rode electric. A pianist played at lunch and after dinner in a lovely lounge. Other entertainment was also brought in a couple of nights--for example a parisian singer and a 60 rock group. The cruise director seemed to know everyone and was always ready to assist with particular needs. She organized the most amazing disembarkation--specialized to each passengers needs.

Overall excellent
