Four friends had a crazy idea to go on a cruise together, cue looking at lots of different websites until one that appealed to all came up. A five day cruise from Southampton along the Seine. 
On arriving on the ship we easily found our cabins, our assigned restaurant and all the bars.
The cabins were clean and comfy, the bathroom though was a little small, esp for anyone over 6ft.

The food was outstanding, the staff attentive (the fact that one staff member picked up on a dish that could have made one of our group ill was proof of this). There was plenty of choice of where to eat during the day, with different restaurants serving different foods. 
Room service was quick and the food just as good as in the restaurants.
Onboard facilities such as washing machines and irons are available - wish the irons had been of a better quality though.
The upper deck and pool area was comfy, an ideal place to sit and relax with a long cold drink and while away an hour or so.
The stops at Rouen and Honfleur were awe inspiring, from the site of Joan of Arc's burning at the stake in Rouen and the Fishermans church in Honfleur we couldn't have asked for more.
Onboard entertainment was very varied, from piano and guitar players to bands, talented crew, quizzes and talks. There was something for everyone. 
The trip overall was wonderful, it gave the four of us time to relax and just enjoy the peace that only being on the water can bring. 
We had amazing weather, temps far higher than we were told to expect which added to the overall enjoyment.
The ships captain had everyone in stitches when he ended every message with Be Happy... I will remember this trip for a very long time to come.
