Right now I am enjoying a Vantage River Cruise through France.  It is back to back two cruises -a total of three weeks covering the northern and southern areas of the country.  Although I love the mega ocean cruise lines, I am really getting a lot of joy traveling with only only 129 interesting people.  The pace is slow with plenty of time to explore on my own.  Having wine or beer complimentary at dinner each night is lovely.  Last night Can Can dancers came on board to entertains us.  So, I am maybe re-thinking mega cruise ships.  What is your preference?
