Great tours and food! Exceptional customer service

17-Jun-2022

As a female solo traveller, I especially appreciated CroisiEurope's summer special waiving single supplements. I am non-EU national, and very much enjoyed the international clientele . My flight arrived later than the prescribed boarding time, the crew had my cabin ready, and held dinner. Both land side New York office and the onboard crew were very welcoming, and most attention to detail. Special recognition to Charina, my reservation agent, and Daniel the ship's purser. The vessel's decor is very discreet, comfortable, and relaxing -- no neon, casino, etc. The elegance one would expect from a French company. The land tours were very comprehensive, in comfortable coaches, with sufficient rest stops. Lunches ashore were included, as appropriate. As advertised, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages were included. In-town shopping was available, but not forced. In all, a delightful experience. I look forward to another voyage with CroisiEurope. The company offers so many unique intineraries, it may be difficult to select.

Wonderful Ship and Crew

09-Jul-2019

I was on a University Alumni cruise that was organized by AHI on the Douro river in Portugal.. All the passengers were Alumni of different universities, about 85 or so. Many were seasoned travelers. Having been on 3 other river cruises I am familiar with the format. The Amalia Rodrigues was very new, clean and immaculate. And very comfortable. The rooms are small but there was a place for everything. You don't spend that much time in them. The bathroom was nice. The food was quite good. The crew was fabulous and bent over backward to accommodate various requests. All were very kind and helpful. The CD Ricardo was a master in his job - energetic, always informative and funny. He is a real asset to CroisiEurope. Having never before sailed with CroisiEurope I would now consider sailing with them. I understand that we were on a somewhat "special" sailing but if the crew and CD are indicative of the caliber of people at CroisiEurope I would sail with them again.

The Beautiful Renoir

24-May-2019

We had a wonderful trip on the beautiful Renoir. We chose this trip because we wanted to do a one way on the Seine, ending in Paris. We started in Honfleur where we had time to explore the city and a coach trip to We were extremely happy with our room and loved that we could keep our sliding glass window cracked open for fresh air at night. The bed was very comfortable and the cleaning staff kept our room and bath room clean and supplied. The entire crew, but especially the gals at the front desk, really was pleasant and never tired of answering our questions. They knew everything that was happening and we felt like we were in extremely good hands. The captain did a great job making sure that we were safe and that we met the schedule. What expertise taking the boat under the bridges in Paris! The excursions for the most part were very good. The boat tour in Paris was par excellence and so glad we were able to do that! The Paris Cabaret show was another highlight for us. The meals were presented well, they were hot and tasty. The dining crew worked really hard and they were always so pleasant and willing to go the extra mile to make sure our dining experience was a good one. We loved the breakfast buffet and the 2 lunch buffets. Because we prefer mainly vegetables, that really worked for us. We wish that every lunch was a buffet!!! Dinners were a little heavy for us and we had to substitute the red meats with fish or chicken. But most of the other people looked like they were really enjoying the menu. We so enjoyed our English speaking table mates, really helped us to communicate at dinner. We would do this trip again in a heartbeat!

Budapest to Amsterdam 31 May 2019

31-May-2020

We were 4 New Zealanders and we chose this cruise because it was 18 days and at a reasonable price. The cabin was not huge but nicely decorated, clean and a good shower and had a large window. The bed was very comfortable. The Victor Hugo had very recently been refurbished. The food, wine and drinks were fantastic. The meals were amazing Staff were great and the announcement were in French and English. We had a little hiccup with our excursions but that was an error with their NZ agent and was soon rectified. Unfortunately when we were to leave Regensburg a Viking Ship smashed a lock gate which prevented all boats going any further. Because we were to go to Amsterdam on our cruise, Croisi arranged for us to go by minibus to Strasbourg and join another ship the Gerard Schmitter which then completed our cruise to Amsterdam. We were 4 days short of our cruise so Croisi put us up in a hotel all meals included with wine, and we had a guide for 4 days to show us all the sights of Amsterdam which was fantastic. We would definitely do another cruise with this company and hope to in the near future.

A memorable four nights on the Seine - Le Havre to Paris

30-Sep-2021

We had never been on a European river cruise before and chose this one for its brevity, just four nights. We were very happy with our choice and heartily recommend Croisieurope to travelers seeking affordable luxury plus top-flight service. The Renoir was refurbished to a very high standard in 2018 and it shows—comfortable beds, a ship-shape bathroom, lots of clever storage, individual climate control, big picture windows that open to let in fresh air. From the moment we arrived on board, the staff handled everything with professionalism and aplomb. The food in the restaurant (three meals a day with wine) was generous and truly delicious, and the shore excursions were all excellent: Honfleur, Deauville, a noted Calvados estate, Rouen, and Versailles. In each location we had a different guide, all bilingual and well-versed in the particular site's history. We really didn't have to to do anything except show up each day! What a treat. The Seine scenery was gorgeous and the boat was extremely comfortable—we loved that we could stay in our cabin, relax on various decks, or attend onboard activities, including a lively dance performance by a Normandy folk troupe. Even though we were the only English speakers on the cruise, the bilingual staff were always on hand to help us, and the other passengers (mostly French with a few Belgians/Swiss) were friendly and tolerant of our basic French. After our final night sleeping aboard the boat on Quai de Grenelle in Paris, we were rather sad to depart the beautiful Renoir.
