Loved this small boat and everyone who worked on it.The staff was very friendly and did their best to meet our needs. I thought that the french meals and wines were lovely and there was plenty of food. The small size, with about 80 passengers, was just right: Most of the passengers were French, Spanish, Norwegian, British and then just the 8 of us Americans, and we enjoyed some of the evening entertainment which were friendly competitions with the others on the ship. The 8 of us were traveling together and we requested one large dining table, and the crew accommodated us, no problem The guides for our excursions were, for the most part, quite capable and entertaining and these excursions were well organized, some on comfortable buses and others were walking tours of the old towns, castles, cathedrals, etc. I would have liked a little more time to eat at the local cafes, to have the chance to try the foods from the different regions, rather than returning to the ship for every meal, but the food on the ship was excellent, so it is not a big complaint. Our cabins were adequate - there was plenty of room to hang up clothes and slide the suitcases out of the way, under the bed, so we could move around easily, and they were cleaned every day, with fresh towels. The excursions were all included in the cost of the cruise. We thought that this cruise was a great value for the money.
