The Best River Cruise Ever!, Tim Hedgley

Tim Hedgley cruised aboard hotel barge L’Impressionniste in Southern Burgundy in June 2017. Read about his experience below:

I know some large cruises can be lovely but if you get bad weather your holiday can be a bit of a disaster. Massive ships rolling from side to side in 40 foot waves, sea sickness, furniture sliding from one side of the deck to the other, that fill my heart with horror.

So for me, I prefer to holiday on a far more gentle form of water based holiday. A gentle cruise on a hotel barge is the perfect way to discover the very soul of Europe, exploring its wonderful countryside and historical treasures and meeting its many friendly and diverse people.
