Sail Date: Jul 2023
Cabin: Outside Stateroom with Smaller Windows

We got a swan room which was fine as we were there to sleep alone. The crew was amazing I have a gluten allergy and they went out of their way to accommodate me. The lead waiter even went off ship and bought me gluten free chips. This was our anniversary trip and they provided us with a huge flourless chocolate cake to celebrate. Honestly above and beyond is an understatement. Only one bad item the whole time. Food was very good and plenty of it.

Excursions were great we did all the included except for the Louvre. They were nice walking tours and you really got a good sense of the area. As typical with other excursions not a lot of free time built in to these. Normandy was moving and very beautiful. We did not have any issues with water level but did have to leave port early due to Bastille day so those on excursions had a long bus ride to meet boat. Just a warning if planning around a holiday lock workers leave early so can change schedule a bit.

We did the extension at end it was at Pullman Eiffel the hotel was great and a very nice host was available. Nice walking tour first day and we had preplanned some wonderful things ourselves. The hosts were great at helping us navigate everything.

Cabin Review

Outside Stateroom with Smaller Windows

Small cabin but efficient. We didn't need a balcony since we were rarely in room.

Port Reviews

Les Andelys

Beautiful Castle

Normandy

Very moving experience unique and well done.

Paris

Louvre visit is short but you get to see all the things you go there for

Rouen

This was the longest stay. i recommend finding the museum its free and the ability to see Monet and Renoir is very worth the walk.

Versailles

We did Le Perc and not Versailles because the tour is just 3 hours. That is not nearly long enough to see Versailles. We spent a day there on our extension and viewed gardens and everything a much better option if you really want to view it all.

Vernon

This was on Bastille Day and super crowded but the gardens are amazing.
