Ernette H. Aquitaine
Thank you for all of your assistance with our cruise.
The 3 aspects of the boat we appreciated were:
1. Ease operation for beginner drivers ( never having driven a boat before)
2. The Flying bridge with steering and seating gave everyone a chance to experience the river and scenery.
3. The boat was well equipped and we needed nothing else.
The 3 aspects of the route/region we appreciated were:
1.the Aquitaine region of France is ideal for self drive boats, with magnificent scenery contributing to a relaxing vacation.
2.The River Baise had the least number of locks and no commercial traffic.
3.The villages along the route were wonderful and an easy walk.
The 3 aspects of Hotels Afloat we appreciated were:
1.Hotels Afloat made the booking very easy from the U S, as no travel agents handle these cruises here.
2.As first time cruisers, we were fully informed about the boat, and the river .which made this cruise a unique experience.
3.Though no fault of anyone, the river was not navigable to Valance Sur Baise and we were reimbursed as well as sending
transportation to our car.
I have been telling everyone about the cruise and showing slide shows of the trip. Everyone enjoyed this part of our trip the best,
as it was so relaxing and unique.
If you have the opportunity could you send me a couple of brochures, I gave mine away and need to give to some other people that
want to book a cruise in the future and we are thinking of Italy. I was wondering if the rivers in Italy are too busy with commercial
traffic and the countryside not as serene as France.
It seems every time I have been to Italy it is bustling, and very crowded, even the Amalfi Coast .
Again, we had a wonderful vacation, thanks to you.
