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

MS Swiss Corona 28th July – 4th August 2014 Cruised - Lyon to Marseille Emerald Deck Suite This ship listed as 5* certainly did not disappoint. Everything about the ship was immaculate and clean. 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 have just had another wonderful holiday with Riviera although it was the first river boat cruise. This was aboard Swiss Corona sailing down the Rhone. 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 have just returned from a seven day trip on the Rhone. It was a first for us after several ocean cruises. We enjoyed it so much more ! Firstly there were only 140 guests and the service was friendly and professional. The food was gourmet, the cabins were a good size and the public ares were spacious with beautiful... 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

Having recently returned from a Burgundy,Rhone & Provence cruise (5th-12th May) booked through Riviera River Cruises I had to post this review as my friend and I had such a super time. Everything lived up to the brochure description plus so much more. The cabins on board the Swiss Corona were comfortable (although we were glad we had booked one... More

Just returned from the Rhone Cruise on the Swiss Corona. No complaints about the cruise itself, but the train journeys there and back on the TGV were a total nightmare. Why on earth does Riviera put us all in the same 2 carriages when there is limited baggage space and limited time at both Lille and Avignon to get on.... More

After having booked a cruise on the Rhone for July with Abercrombie & Kent on the Amadeus Symphony, we were cancelled due to insufficient number of persons on our tour. Abercrombie & Kent represents the Amadeus Symphony as their cruise (it still shows on their webpage and encourages calls), but in reality they have reserved a number of cabins for... More
