Sensations of Lyon & Provence Cruise Review

“I recently embarked on the Sensations of Lyon & Provence cruise aboard the Emerald Liberté and it was an extraordinary journey. From the delightful cheese tastings in Chalon-sur-Saône to exploring Lyon by bike, my trip was filled with cultural discoveries that still leave me smiling whenever I think about them. I thoroughly enjoyed the tastings of regional wines and the Provençal dinner hosted by the local chef. I also adored my stateroom and had many restful nights’ sleep. The golf putting green on the Sun Deck became my favourite spot. The service was impeccable and so were the amenities both in my cabin and around the ship. If you seek a unique and unforgettable way to explore France, I highly recommend this cruise.”
