We have just returned from a wonderful cruise in the south of France with Riviera Travel on the MS Swiss Corona. The trip was well organised, very relaxing and good value for money. The crew on board the ship were exceptional and could never do enough for you, particularly the restaurant team. The tours were very informative and paced just... More

We were first time river cruisers and travelled in reverse direction, Avignon to Lyon between 4th and 11th August and, in line with other reviewers, I cannot praise the boat, its crew and the standard of cuisine on board and the quality of the boat itself highly enough as all well and truly surpassed our expectations. However the trip itself... More

We travelled with Great Rail Journeys for a river cruise on the lower part of the Rhone in France and it was most disappointing. No WiFi yet we were informed only a week before departure that there was WiFi throughout the boat. No minibar to keep water cold in the cabin, and we were charged 2.90 Euro for a bottle,... More

This was a cruise recommended to us by someone who had experience it. The cruise visits Avignon, Arles, Vienne and Lyon as well as other less well known places. The river cruise ship Swiss Corona is a beautiful ship having very attractive cabins and the food is excellent, beautifully cooked. Breakfast and Lunch are buffet style but there are extra... More

The crew were exceptional. A well organised week by Riviera but do be prepared for a lot of walking and no lie-ins. Most walks/trips starting at... More

We loved it so much it was so relaxing and the food was first class. The ship was so beautiful and it looked so much better and more luxurious than any that moored up... More

We joined the french vessel M/S Camargue, operated by Croisi Europe, at Chalon sur Saone. The cruise was to take us down the rivers to Marseilles, with lots of stops on the way. Dinner, with table wines included was being served as we left for Macon. After breakfast next day, one could go ashore and explore Macon on your own.... More
