Sail Date: Aug 2023
Cabin: French Balcony

The Paris and Loire extension was excellent, well timed, with comfortable and good hotels.

Surprisingly, enough time to do a mini city tour of Paris by taxi (no traffic, Parisians are on vacation in August) and easy restaurant reservations.

Busy at the Chateaus we visited, but our guides whisked us right by them.

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Same as we had before. Small but very efficiently put together. Plenty of storage space. Bathroom surprisingly efficient with shower you can turn in. We love the French balcony, open the door for fresh air and enjoy the scenery. Friends with a balcony did not like it, when they sat there, towards the dock, no privacy. If anything, a small chair would be a great addition to the cabin.

Port Reviews

Bordeaux

Good overview by bus, followed by walking tour. All in all a nice impression of Bordeaux.

Cadillac

Nice old town. Bus drive and visit with tasting to vineyard excellent.

Medoc

Bus tour through Medoc, past all the famous chateaus, stop at Margeaux and one chateau (busses went oto 3 different chateaus for visit and tastings), mostly drive by others. Nice stories from guide, good backgrounds. Very nice dinner in the Pavillion of Chateau Kirwan, no visit to the Chateau itself. Felt a bit commercial, nice function room, but it could have been anywhere.
