My husband and I have decided to book a one week luxury river cruise in France. We have found a website http://french-waterways-cruises.com/ which proposes a very interesting offer. We would like to have some testimonials of people who have already lived this experience or your felling about this offer to help us to make the good choice!
While I did not take the trip, four couples of our friends did a cruise on in the Alsace region in September 2005. They raved about it, saying it was one of the most wonderful trips they had ever taken. According to them, the food was expertly prepared and exquisitly presented, and the accommodations beyond their expectations. They used French Waterways, but I cannot remember the nameof the barge. It was, however, one that accommodated only the 8 of them. My husband and I did river cruises on the Seine and Rhone a few years ago on one of the larger (60 passengers) river boats and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a wonderful way to experience the countryside of France. I'm sure you would enjoy.
Life's too short not to cruise!
