If you look on the map for André Citroën Park, it is 40 metres from the docking point. Their website photo is taken with their back to the Seine. This is a small area, and a narrowish river,...

A similar situation occurred for us with Scenic. We have only ever had one suite and that was Uniworld Seine/Nomandy. We were going to do Bordeaux, and due to dates we booked a suite with Scenic,...

I have sailed for river cruises on AMA, APT (alone) Uniworld and Croisi.

As I have travelled from the Suite on Uniworld, to a single tiny cabin on Croisi, I would put the food and care I received...

I've done 6 river cruises in France, 2 Paris/Normandy on the Seine, 1 north to south, 1 Bordeaux and 2 Just Lyon to Arles.

I travel there in spring and I book the first or second cruise of the...

I just had a great week in Paris, albeit exhausting, and just ending my week in Lyon, no issues at all. I noticed increased security in certain places, and on railway stations, but generally, it was...

Glad it's up for you, but nothing on the Australian site, no surprises I guess. I was looking for the longer trip too, I think it was Grand France, so I will need to wait until they get around to us.

I've never experienced motion sickness with river cruising, if your wife feels anxious, just take some travel sickness tablets tucked away to set her mind at rest.

I have done many river cruises,...

I don't' know but I'm getting a bit antsy about the wait now. I rang the Australian office last week and they don't know either.

I am waiting too, but I thought it was later than that. I thought I recalled Asia coming up a good month or so ahead of Europe. I hope I am wrong and you are right! :)
Do it! :)
I too have been fortunate, I have sailed Lyon to Arles twice, and am booked again for April 2016. (Uniworld, APT/AMA and next is Croisi)

If you have not done this area before, I would go with your...

Yes, I have, last year - I went solo. Had a great cruise, it was much different to the other two cruises in France (out of Paris and out of Lyon). I know Uniworld cabins are a bit more snug, but I...

I have done two APT (AMA run/crewed) ships in Germany, food quite good several years ago, appalling 2 years ago. I have also done one APT (probably also AMA run) cruise in France, and I enjoyed it...

Gosh, what a long time ago now, so much life has happened!

I can confirm it was an amazing cruise! there are some threads on Trip Advisor under Noble Caledonia. Since that post they have...

….my wife literally had to drag me to Paris the first time….

LOL My husband was the same, and after the Seine cruise he can't wait to get back to France! :)

We've done it twice, once late March and once this year in April. No rain on the March trip, incredibly warm, and this year had a little overcast weather, no rain. Lovely weather :)

This is on my list with NC too, not booked yet though! I am eager to learn anything from anyone who has done this sort of itinerary with Noble Cal. I hope you have a fantastic time, and would love...

I see you are in a hotel, not on a ship but I am not sure about the difference though.

I have always left small change in my cabin and various tables in my hotel rooms and NEVER had housekeeping...

I agree 4774papa, nor did APT / AMA. It's about how they deal with things, we're pretty much stuck on Uniworld now, cabins smaller, much better everything else. :) Last trip with them the air-con...

Interesting, I had been looking at another option. I am a fan of Uniworld (travelling with them in three weeks!) so I too will watch this spot!

Thanks for the info :)

I feel you may need to be a bit patient waiting for your refund TazCaz, wheels within wheels. However that's not to say you can't "feedback" directly to the PR people at APT, for what it's worth.

I'm sorry about this TazCaz, but it doesn't surprise me with APT,l I am NOT a fan, or should I say, used to be a fan, am not now.

I have heard of this occurring. We learned a lot during our...

Yes, it's about 150 metres from the docking place for the ships. It's a 5 minute walk.

ETA No, there are not always cabs there (time of day possibly) and it's a small country station. You would...

I too have just returned from a Uniworld cruise, and it's a 5* review when I get to write it.

I am also booked for the Bordeaux cruise - I did wonder about this because I don't drink. I decided...

I'm on board now, and you can do as the other suggestions, optional excursions or treat yourself to a massage or two :)

I like Uniworld - sometimes I go on a waived single supplement, other times not. Scenic has a single cabin (I'm told) and apparently it is specifically built, therefore it will be tiny. On Uniworld...
