RIVER CRUISING IN FRANCE... LA BELLE FRANCE
River Cruises through Provence, Burgundy, Normandy, and Bordeaux that Inspire!


Sign up for the INSIDE SCOOP eNewsletter

From elegant, chic Paris “City of Lights” to the Normandy Beaches, from the vineyards of Burgundy to sunny Provence and beaches of the Mediterranean, a river cruise in France is just what one expects — full of the special joie de vivre that can be found only in La Belle France. 

2014 river cruises in France sold out very early, over a year in advance creating a great deal of disappointment.  For 2015 we anticipate the demand for river cruises in France to continue to be incredible.  In 2015, we will see a number of new river ships introduced into the market by Viking and Avlaon who will each introduce brand new ships in Burgundy and Provence.  Viking will deploy two new sleek "long ships" and Avalon has the new Poetry II.  Demand for these new ships and Uniworld's impeccable SS Catherine which was launched in 2014 will be very, very strong, so you must book early.

For 2015, French wine aficionados, Scenic River Cruises, Uniworld and Viking river cruise lines have just introduced river cruises through the Bordeaux region of France.  You'll experience the wines and foods of Bordeaux along with wine tasting in many of the more impressive Chateau like d'Arsac and Saint-Emilion.  On some cruises you'll even enjoy an off the ship dinner at one of the Chateau.  For oyster lovers, you may not know it, but Bordeaux may have the best oysters in the world, even better than the Chesapeake Bay variety.  Bordeaux opens up a really indepth cruise for food and wine lovers.

Among all the European countries, France is the number one, most popular vacation destination in the world and you’ll soon discover why on a French river cruise! It is a truly remarkable country, one that is culturally, artistically and historically rich. France is so much more than merely Paris. Charming towns like Chartres, with its famed cathedral, and Tours, which may be one of the most picturesque towns in the midi-region are a must to visit. There’s also Honfleur, one of our favorite towns in Normandy, which appears to be unchanged from the time of Napoleon. Click HERE to continue reading article below.

But, let's start first in glorious Paris as we begin to wind our way through France... Imagine strolling the left bank of Paris where art studios abound while strange, cool Parisian artists mingle with an eclectic mix of locals and tourists. Maybe take a seat in a quaint sidewalk café where, for a few Euros, you can have an espresso and fresh baguette or pastry as you while away the day just people watching. Next, stroll and shop along the incredible Champs-Elysées with a view great place to take photographs of the Arc de Triomphe at every turn. While ascending the outdoor elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower for a lunch in the clouds, think about the excitement and romance of the moment.

Paris and its surrounds is one of the easiest cities to explore in depth. The subway system one of the finest enables one to go everywhere for only a few Euros. It will even take you to what is possibly the most impressive, old building in all of France — Versailles — where the treaty that ended WWII was signed. The palace consists of almost 1,000 rooms and contains a myriad of treasures of bygone eras.

Continuing your French river cruise, you’ll discover that it is much more than an experiential trip through France. A river cruise through this country not only takes one on a journey through hundreds of miles of beautifully diverse landscape, it is also a journey back through time. The major river systems of France, the Seine in the north and Rhône and Saône in the south, are intimately linked to France’s culture, history, and development. While you’ll see different scenery and perspectives on these diverse systems, all of the rivers deliver unequalled, staggering amounts of beauty, culture, history and social development. There’s so much to see in France that not even a fabulous river cruise will allow you to gather it all in during one visit.
