Wonderful area, interesting river on a mediocre ship

We chose it as we wanted to revisit an area of France we knew well from at least 25 years of camping among the vineyards of southern France. We arrived in Lyon on excellent Eurostar direct from St Pancras. ...

Fabulous Value; Relaxing and Nice Experience for the Whole Family

I'm not sure why A-rosa is bunked for Americans...in fact, I wondered why more English speaking cruisers weren't on board. The staff all spoke English as well as German (most of the crew were Eastern European) and ...

Lovely Rhone

This was our first river cruise in France, and perhaps our last, for reasons below. The ship is well run, with a mix of Germans, Brits and Norwegians. Language was not a problem, but for English announcements were ...
