Review summary

This was the best cruise we've been on. The friendliness and helpfulness from everyone was amazing. Our captain was wonderful and spoke to us frequently. Nicholas, the program director, was very organized. All of our activities went very smoothly. It was great to have him out and about with us.

The main dining room was lovely and the food was fabulous. Our chef, Daniel, was delightful and we looked forward to his daily recommendations. The omelet chef was great and all of the servers were wonderful!

Onboard Activities

We thoroughly enjoyed the piano player, the French singers and the lava cake lesson. We also loved the mini French lessons and the explanation of some of the French customs. Our program director, Nicholas was excellent. He knew everyone by name and he interacted with everyone. He makes everyone feel special. We were very impressed
