MS Bizet Review

Review of MS Bizet

MS Bizet cruise ship is currently owned and operated by Grand Circle Cruise Line and has max passenger capacity 120 (plus 33 crew/staff). The riverboat (ENI number 07001815) was specifically designed to navigate the winding Seine River in France. The ship's Seine River itinerary offers departures from homeports Honfleur and Paris City, and visits Rouen and Giverny.

MS Bizet cruise ship

The shipowner is Grand Circle Corporation via its subsidiary company Grand Circle Travel USA (Boston MA-headquartered travel agency).


MS Bizet has a capacity of 120 passengers in 60 staterooms, all with outside views. At night 2 single berths fold out of opposite walls (they can't be combined into a double bed) and fold back during the day, this way leaving two small sofas. Given how compact the staterooms are, they are surprisingly comfortable. On the Soprano Deck, each room features a floor-to-ceiling window and 16-sq.foot balcony.

Shipboard facilities and amenities

Complimentary beverages including bottled water, tea and coffee, soft drinks, premium spirits, and select fine wines are served throughout Bizet. The ship has one restaurant, accommodating passengers at a single, unassigned seating. Vegetarian and well-being selections, special dietetic menus are provided upon request. 

Bizet ship amenities include a bar, lounge, elevator, library and Sun Deck. The Bizet ship has an international crew of 33 members and 3 English-speaking Program Directors. As passengers discover the beauty of France in a group of up to 45 travellers, each with an expert resident Program Director, they will feast in the warm camaraderie of fellow cruise companions. "Home-hosted visits" where cruisers split into small groups and visit a local in his/her home, are offered as part of the itinerary.
