 I'm considering the new Italy and France Riviera trip, but have seen only one review and limited feedback on the trip. Any thoughts?

Unfortunaely, a very small percentage of GCT travelers write reviews or post comments  on this forum. Conde Nast Traveler, however , rates, the ship, the Arethusa, as the number 1 small cruise ship. See http://www.cntraveler.com/cruises/cruise-lines/grand-circle/arethusa. The good news is that dissatisfied customers are much more likely to post that satisfied ones. We definitely want to take this trip, but  there are others ahead of it on our list right now.

 Thanks! That's one of my motivations. I had such a great time on the Antarctica small ship and I'm hoping to replicate the experience.
