Gems of the Seine The Seine’s river-banks are lined by the landscapes familiar from impressionist paintings, as well as medieval towns and picturesque ports. This new 11-day round trip cruise from Paris includes the port of Honfleur, Les Andelys, Rouen, Caudebec-en-Caux, Vernon and Conflans. Guests will visit the D-day beaches, Monet’s gardens at Giverny and the ruins of Richard the Lionheart’s château; and experience a Scenic Enrich event at the sixteenth-century Château-de-Champlâtreux.
Treasures of Europe’s Waterways This 19-day river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam extends the ‘Jewels of Europe’ river cruise. Guests visit the historic Slovakian capital, Bratislava and witness a traditional wedding presentation, and also visit Hoorn, Edam and Düsseldorf. Experiences include discovering the Vienna Woods and the Seegrotte underground cave museum, and a guided hike to twelfth-century Wertheim Castle.
