We did a Viking Tour cannot fault the boat, the staff , the service and food. It was all well organised . However a couple of places we moored were not the best locations, there are a lot of locks and the actual time spent cruising during daylight was not as much as we had anticipated. The Rhone is only... More

Just returned from an amazing river cruise through southern France from Avignon & Arles to Chalon-sur-Saone and Lyon, courtesy of Riviera Travel. Fantastic weather - endless blue skies, sunshine and temperatures in the thirties. The MS Swiss Corona is a fabulous vessel and ALL of the crew are even more fabulous. The food was amazing as were the places that... More

Had an excellent week on the Swiss Carona with Riviera - although probably the youngest couple on the boat as we havn't actually retired just yet, it was expected. Did the Lyon to Avignon route and chose to fly to Lyon (back from Marseille) which cut down on travel time but also gave us a great opportunity to have an... More

We have just returned from an 8 day Rhone/Soane river cruise by Riviera Travel on MS Swiss Corona, and it was fantastic. we were lucky to have excellent weather for the whole duration except Mistrial winds down South, but it was a warm wind! We took Eurostar/TGV to Avignon without any problems, except a large party of young schoolchildren, who... More

We travelled with Riviera to a river cruise on the Rhone in May 15. Unfortunately after arrival, a fast thaw of mountain snow caused the river to rise to a point where the boats were prevented from operating. Riviera organised the first half of the holiday using coaches and we were able to see some of the country as planned,... More

Our first river cruise. Travelled by rail to Avignon with relative ease. 4 hours from Lille which was apparently the same time it took for the transfer from Lyon airport. We did experience a hiccup at Lille when the Riviera rep could not be found. Firstly the Swiss Corona. Brilliant layout, beautiful decor, light and airy, clean. The soundproofing needs... More

I have been sailing the Rhone for the past 3 1/2 years of my life, and can't get enough of it! Every time that we go up or down stream, there is something new or unseen to be discovered. Beautiful and breathtaking countryside sceneries, magnificent food discoveries on a daily bases, and some of the Best wine regions of France!... More

I was totally satisfied with this cruise. The boat was lovely, the crew and attendants couldn't have been nicer, and the food was outstanding. I would definitely take another river cruise. You don't get to see the towns in a lot of detail because you are only there a short time, but it is a very relaxing way to travel.... More

It was great fun to visit Arles, Avignon, Vienne, Beaune, and Lyon. The surprise charmer was Tournon-sur-Rhone, a little town on the west bank. Generally, however, this cruise was so-so. I expected the effect of two of the world's gastronomic and viniculture centers (Provence & Burgundy) to make an impact on the ship's food and wine, but not so. It... More
