“France is particularly lovely during the summertime, which is a tidbit I’m sure the people who made this cruise took into account. The ship was lovely, spacious. Staff were helpful and the tours informative and entertaining. There were lots of options so I didn’t end up seeing anything I already had previously, that was nice.”
