We cruised to Arles with Avalon down the beautiful Saone and for the main part the Rhone. The Rhone is a beautiful river with several cities and towns to explore each time the ship docked. Our favorites were Avignon and Arles.

We took a Viking River cruise on the Rhone. Viking is a class act company; gourmet food, beautiful ships, well trained staff. Everyday there is a walking tour of each little town we went into. Most of the excursions are included, but there are some extras if you so choose to sign up for them, which are reasonably priced. We... More

Taken overall we enjoyed our river cruise to Burgundy and Provence. Weather good, company good and speed of life very pleasant. While the reasons for the travel difficulties caused by actions at the tunnel with Eurostar and the TGV on our outward journey were beyond the control of Riviera better contingency planning would have avoided most of the discomfort; we...

had a weeks' cruise early Aug. We had a ruby deck cabin at the stern which to be honest was cramped and the 'bathroom' was tiny. How some of the larger passengers used the toilet or shower defies my imagination.There is a fair bit of noise from the equipment and machinery at the stern which can be annoying.However ,the crew...

The Swiss Corona was great, the staff, all Eastern European, were brilliant and as professional as they come. Trips were well organised as was the hiccup on leaving when our train was 90 mins late at Lyon meaning a lost Eurostar connection at Lille. Well done Ros for sorting it out so professionally. Only major minus mark, with SNCF not... More

The Riviera cruise is well organised with the Swiss Corona a well run boat with food to a high standard and very efficient and friendly crew. The boat had a complete refit last year and therefore was in good order. We flew BA from Heathrow to join the boat which appears to be far less hassle then travelling by Eurostar/TGV.... More

This was our first experience of river cruising and we were not disappointed. The MS Swiss Corona is an exceptional boat as are the staff. The whole team were delightful, nothing being too much trouble for them. They all spoke excellent English (puts us Brits to shame) and were friendly but professional at the same time. The cabins were kept... More

Anyone who suffers from a mobility difficulty must consider whether or not they can cope with this cruise. The TGV option has two serious drawbacks. Firstly they do not seem to operate a ramp system to help passengers with walking or balance problems. When the train arrived in Avignon (and it must be the same for Lyon) the tour rep... More

This river cruise was the best we've ever had. AMA Waterways went way beyond the normal for its passengers. We had 3 days in Barcelona, with sightseeing and exploring including Montserrat. Then a bus trip to Arles and onto the AmaDagio for 7 nights. This ship is an older one in their fleet but it is in pristine condition. The... More
