This past Saturday in Lyon, France, we stepped off the river cruiser A-ROSA Stella following a weeklong cruise on the Rhône and Saône rivers in southern France.
The itinerary was gorgeous, with visits to vineyards, bicycle trips through the French countryside, fine dining, sunsets on the rivers and the chance to stroll through charming villages, cities and towns such as Avignon and Arles. Of course, the French wines, included at no extra charge — as were all beverages — were refreshing, delicious and generously poured.
There was some initial confusion about the all-inclusive policy when we boarded: See All-Inclusive River Cruises? Introducing A-ROSA Stella.
