Paris and Normandy River Cruise

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,793

Embark on a cruise to discover history and heritage along the Seine Valley. After a couple nights savouring Paris’s famous cultural scene, you’ll board a river vessel to cruise to Honfleur and Rouen to tour their charming cityscapes, enjoying the beautiful banks and waters of the Seine along the way.


This 5-day French cruise takes you along the Seine from Paris to the cities of Honfleur and Rouen. It features moderate accommodations aboard a river vessel, private transfers, and shared excursions off the ship.

Your journey begins in Paris, the City of Light and the most beloved city on the planet. Paris is a city that attracts all manner of Globetrotters, from foodies wanting to experience its revolutionary culinary scene to art lovers who want to get lost in its galleries and museums to history buffs tracing the stories of the French Revolution. You’ll have two nights in Paris to get a taste for its cultural wonders. Take advantage of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus pass to dart around the city and visit popular landmarks from the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. In the evening, head to Montmartre or the Latin Quarter to discover eclectic bars and good dining establishments offering you a window into the city’s celebrated food scene and nightlife.

In Paris, board the MS Seine Princess, a boutique cruise vessel, to begin your journey along the Seine. The Seine Princess offers all the comforts of a high-end hotel, from gourmet cooking to high-end bar features to ample room in your cabin or on deck. Journey towards Rouen and take an excursion to Chateau de Martainville along the way. After admiring the wide turrets and tall spire roofs of this 16th-century castle, rejoin the boat in Rouen and continue towards Honfleur. The next day, tour Honfleur to see the old port and the slate-covered frontage homes that inspired Impressionist painters like Claude Monet. In the afternoon, journey along La Cote d’Albatre between the cliffs and villages to admire the landscape. Join the boat back in Honfleur and cruise overnight back towards Rouen. In Rouen, you’ll head on a guided tour to see the Gothic Rouen Cathedral and the church of St. Joan of Arc, located where the patron saint of France was burned at the stake in 1431. That evening enjoy a gala dinner on board.

The next day, you’ll return to Paris and disembark, ending your river journey.
