Impressions of the Seine & Paris River Cruise Review

“We’ve sailed the Rhine and Danube many times, so this was a little different for us, and it doesn’t disappoint. Paris from the water shows a completely different side to the city, even if you’re familiar with it, and the emphasis on art and history is fascinating, even if that’s not really your thing. The vessel is luxurious, and the cuisine is excellent. It’s a very pretty river, and we visited places I would never have gone to had we not taken this voyage. A great trip with a huge variety of tours and excursions.”

Jack and Penny, Daventry
