Reviews for the Cirrus A
We travelled as a couple. It was our second cruise.
I wouldn't. It was tired. I had not appreciated that the Cirrus still vents waste direct into the water. Time it was retired. Easy to handle though, and a good size for two. Everything worked.
The whole holiday was memorable. while classed as a "short break" we took the whole week to complete the which we found worked better as we were able to relax & enjoy the scenery & spend more time site seeing. My wife & I found the locks easy to operate.
The boat is a little bit tired but had everything we needed, apart from shore power. Curtains were a poor fit in respect of not fully covering window in the bedroom. We also experience problems of unpleasant smells permiating into the bedroom from the engine compartment which was only rectified by plugging holes with tissue & leaving the engine hatch slightly open at night. I think the boat is ready for refurbishment or better still perhaps its time for you consider producing a new boat in this size. All said we would still book this boat again.
It Rained most of the week, which was a real dampner, but the Plan incline d'Arzviller inclined boat lift was impressive. Saverne was also very nice.
The Ciruss boat we had broke down twice, Engine would not start, and then overheated. Although the engineer was very good. The handbook stated that we would get hot water when on electric when in fact it turned out the boat we had did not have an immersion heater! So because of that I can't give a very good score on that, although the boat itself was comfortable.
Cocktail hour on board viewing great scenery in a peaceful location.
We enjoyed the boat and its facilities were good.
The peace and quiet of the river. Birdlife esp Dippers Heron and Kingfishers. Also enjoyed fishing. Cycling up to St Simon for coffee. Not being under any time pressure.
Excellent boat. our holidays are just the two of us now so the 2+2 was very comfortable for us. I notice most of your fleet are larger craft, I hope you continue to provide the smaller option.
