The first review was just published.  The reviewer gave it 4 stars.  We leave in early June for the pre-trip to Provence and I can hardly wait.  I've never written a review before, but maybe I'll do it this time.  Since we have enjoyed every tour we've gone on with GCT/OAT, I would be surprised if I don't give it 5 stars!  This will be our third cruise on the 50 passenger ships and our second on the Arthusa.  The captain and the ship were written up in "Currents" which arrived this week.

Did some of the passengers have issues with motion/sea sickness?

 We took the Croatia trip which is on one of the sister ships (they have 3 of the same ship) and we didn't have any motion sickness issues.  The crew and food were amazing.  The ships would be better though if they had wifi, and, if I really wanted to stretch it, a washer and dryer.  Although we just took along clothes that we could wash in the sink.  We really liked the small ship experience.

We were the first group to do The Rivieras: Italy, France & Isles.  Great itinerary and Program Directon, Guilio.    We did this trip Late March into April.  While the weather was unusuallu cold and rainy, we still enjoyed the beauty of all the Port Stops and land destinations.  GCT went our of their way to make changes along the way and accommodate us through some weather issues only Mother Nature could control.  A terrific trip and I highly recommended it.
