  1. Do you know if CroisiEuorope allows smoking on their boats? That would be a deal breaker for me .
  2. Hope Viking comes thru and you have a great trip. After coming back recently from an amazing bus tour they can be as expensive as a river cruise these days.
  3. Thank you for your trip report. We’ve been on two Viking river cruises and both were excellent.
  4. On this trip we docked right into town so that was really great. If you wanted to do wine tasting and other sights those required a bus trip but 30 min at the most if I'm remembering correctly. At times we stayed overnight and sailed the next morning. These ports are fantastic. Hard to pick a favorite but Saint Emilion was really amazing. Make sure you do the walking tours. You will have a great time.
  5. We just came back from this trip and had a great time. Stayed in the pre cruise hotel called Hotel du Louvre. We loved the location of this hotel. Wasn't a big fan of the included breakfast since anything ordered from the menu took forever and was often cold. The breakfast buffet was ok. This was our first river cruise with Uniworld and we really liked it. The service was great.Always asking if we needed anything. We had the french balcony room. Beautiful decor and loved how Uniworld does the French windows where one can stand outside like a mini balcony. The big problem with the room was how cramped it felt. We've done two previous Viking cruises and even though the bedrooms were small it had a superior design where one didn't feel cramped. Loved Barbara one of the tour guides we had on this trip. Try to get in her group if you can. Ask away any questions you may have.
  6. We did this cruise on the Luminary. If you do the ship's excursion to Keukenhof make sure to choose the full day instead of the half day as there is so much to see. We also did the Delta Works which is fascinating but to be honest wish we had just did the bike tour in the countryside instead. But that's just me. A really nice trip.
  7. I've been on 2 Viking cruises and 1 Avalon. Loved them all but if I had to choose again I would go with Viking over Avalon. The staff was super friendly and helpful on our Viking cruises. We did the South of France and Romantic Danube and on those we were able to walk into town. Guides were great and it never felt crowded. They also do a really nice barbecue on the deck which we used quite a few times. You really can't go wrong with any of the cruise lines since river cruising is great. We got a French Balcony and the rooms were big enough for us.
