Scenic Diamond Cruise Review by Rit Southam
- Sail Date: August 2019
- Destination: Europe
This time travelling to a region of France we have not seen before and wanted to learn more about.
On board attentive staff, great food , friendly fellow passengers made the ten days most enjoyable and we learned a lot about wine, the grape varieties and wine making.
Starting and finishing in Bordeaux which we found to be a delightful city and had adequate time for exploring. Other ports of call included Libourne, Pauilliac, Fort Medoc, Cadillac, Bourg sur Garrone and Blaye, we also took a side excursion to Cognac, a lovely town and of course we just had to see how its namesake spirit is made and tasted at Remy Martin.
Recommend to anyone not just wine enthusiasts.

The boat has a lift between floors for less able passengers.
While a tour of the Bordeaux region may immediately seem to appeal to those interested in Wine there is a lot more to this region to see and learn about, Bordeaux City itself is charming and easily negotiated on foot an by tram and bus.
A very enjoyable holiday.
