Happy Traveler CommentThanks [Glynna] for this "gracious" walk through. What a wonderful customer service style you have. Much appreciated. Indeed I expect to enjoy this cruise. Will be hard to get off at the end of 16 glorious days. — Lynette K.
From your river viewpoint, you get to see many places other travelers never get to see. Historically, French villages were built right along the river to allow easy access to water for transportation and shipping. Guests on river cruises in France benefit from the ports that were built long ago.
When you reach a port, your ship pulls right into the town you are visiting. It’s all about accessibility on the European river cruises through France. Step off your ship for an early morning walk through the town, to pick up some souvenirs, or make a purchase from a local food vendor.
French river cruises deliver you to each port destination without the need of additional transportation to get you to the town or shopping. In addition to your included excursion, there is plenty of time to do a little exploring on your own. Another great plus about river cruises in France is the smoothness of the water, so there is no reason to worry about getting seasick.
