On behalf of myself and my friends Mary Anne, Alice and Sue we would like to thank you for the wonderful experience we had on our cruise in France. The hospitality and service we received was outstanding. All the servers were so considerate and kind. The excursions were excellent, I especially enjoyed the Normandy beaches trip. We are all looking forward to another trip with CroisiEurope. I have already recommended your cruise line to more of my friends.”CroisiEurope Testimonial
Recently I returned from an 8- day cruise on CroisiEurope's Renoir on the Seine River. We traveled to and from Paris to Honfleur, near the Normandy D-Day beaches and cliffs. From the moment we stepped on the ship where we were pleasantly greeted by Louis, our purser, we enjoyed a most enjoyable week. The friendly and talented staff met our every needs, the accommodations were spotlessly clean and comfortable, and the food was beyond belief. Every meal was a gourmand's delight. I loved the fresh croissants every morning, the French sauces with many lunches and dinners, and the scrumptious desserts. The variety of French wines was amazing and enjoying these at any time, included in the cruise fee, was an added bonus. Our excursions were reasonably priced and were guided by multilingual and knowledgeable people. We were English speakers and were always served well with translators. It was fun being included with many different nationalities in one setting... Spanish, French, Brits, Irish, and Norse. What else is there to say? My group of five is already planning our next CroisiEurope trip!”CroisiEurope Testimonial
My husband and I just returned from the Seine River Cruise on the Botticelli -- it was wonderful! The staff was friendly, helpful, accommodating, and gave 110% at all times; they made sure all passengers enjoyed their stay. Most passengers were French speakers, with us being 2 of the 10 English speakers (6 from USA, 2 from Australia, 2 from England), however we never felt ‘left out’. Food was wonderful, served hot (important to us), and beautifully presented. While same meal was served to all, when we noticed something that my husband would not eat, they were quick to make a substitution for him. We had never been on any cruise and would definitely do this again! The small size and personal service made for a fabulous vacation!”CroisiEurope Testimonial
