We saw this cruise advertised by Fenn Holidays based in March (Cambs), and decided to to book, as we had had very favourable comments from people who had travelled with them over and over again, and we were not disappointed – far from it, especially as this was our first time 'cruising'. The organisation was superb right from the start to the finish of the holiday. We were collected from our front door (and returned too), our luggage handled from start to finish. Their coach was really luxurious with ample leg room and a/c which given the very hot weather was most welcome. John and Hilary, our driver/guide and escort respectively, were the best we have had to look after us – John is a superb driver and extremely knowledgeable and Hilary looked after us like a second mother! always ensuring we were comfortable, especially those who were less mobile. Our fellow passengers were all of a similar age group (retired), and all seemed to enjoy themselves.

The cruise on the River Seine from Honfleur to Paris via Rouen and Versailles, was in Croisi Europe's 'The Seine Princess' which was an extremely luxurious a River Cruiser. Our cabin was very spacious, clean and what was more, boasted a Jacuzzi, but the best part of the cruise was the crew who made us very welcome and spared no effort to meet everyone's needs, and keep them happy.

However, the crowning glory has to go to the chef and his team who provided us with 5*+ meals and three choices of wine daily! – all done with such grace and pleasure. The crew put on a floor show which would compete with London's best – what with that, a running commentary on the places of interest as we cruised, one really could not ask for more.

Sadly, all good things come to an end, but the last night was the spectacular evening cruise into Paris which was illuminated, the star of the show being the Eiffel Tower brilliantly lit with a laser show.

We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, and all going well, will look forward to another one with this company, and the cruise line.
