Review summary

My favorite part of the trip was the tour, lunch and wine tasting  at Chateau Siuarac.   This trip was really all about the wine.  I would definitely recommend this cruise to my friends looking for a relaxing, safe vacation with very attentive service.  I would recommend a three day visit to the Loire Valley either before or post cruise, to see the great Chateaux of France.

Ship tip

Don't be afraid to request a different wine with your meal than what is being served. They are very accommodating.
