Just home from a River cruise on the River Rhone in Southern France. Flew to Marseiille and then coach to Arle flying home from Lyon. Beautiful ship with excellent staff. Nothing too much trouble , all speaking perfect English, apart from the Captain who only spoke French.Complementary walking and coach tours available everyday with extra payable ones mainly after lunch. Lovely cabins with spacious showers and toiletries provided. Food wonderful , breakfast and lunch self service and dinner waiter served. Wine and beer included with meals , several drink packages available .We chose the premium package at €19.90 per day, this entitled us to drinks from 11.00am including cocktails. We certainly got our monies worth. Speciality coffee also available on this package. Tea and coffee available from self service machines all day. Beautiful swimming pool, bigger than usual pools on cruise ships. Didn't use the gym or the hairdresser or beautician. My only criticism would be the fight to get a table at 7.00pm when the gong for dinner is rung. Would certainly recommend and would go on a river cruise again.

Absolutely fabulous
