Really enjoyed this cruise!

Our first ever cruise and we weren't disappointed. The ship was first class and so was the service. We opted for a suite but might go for a cabin next time as we were only ever in the suite for sleeping. A bit ...

There were too many great things to highlight only one

Not as good as our heart of Europe cruise 2 years ago with Riviera.

We had high hopes of this cruise with previous experience of the company and fairly good reviews. The flight to Lyon was fine but had to wait nearly 30 minutes for one of our party in a wheelchair who seemed to have ...
