Cruise from Paris through Normandy’s countryside, uncovering its many charms: Richard the Lionheart’s Chateau Gaillard, the medieval capital of Rouen, Monet’s beloved home in Giverny and the famed Normandy beaches.
Experience a different side of Northern France’s history with a choice to tour two majestic palaces, Versailles, once home to Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, or Château de Malmaison, once home to Napoleon’s first empress, Josephine.
See the best of Paris in one of three ways via the “Heart of Paris” cruise and city tour, an exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” tour or an exclusive guided “Go Active” bike tour. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in more active experiences, such as golfing at Rouen’s Mont-Saint-Aignan and at Sainte-Mère-Église in Étretat, perched on the cliff high above the sea, making playing golf here a memorable experience and visual feast.

Points of Interest

Normandy resized


Normandy has been the setting for many battles over the centuries, including the D-Day invasion of WWII. Due to this, the Normandy Beaches mean different things to different people. It has many historic sites for exploration such as the Utah and Omaha beaches, Juno Beach or the famous 11th-century tapestry depicting the Battle of Hastings.


Ahh... the City of Lights. Just the name of this enchanting city evokes an air of opulence, romance and wonder. Wander through her intimate quarters to discover quaint shops and artisanal delicacies or venture to her most notable landmarks to marvel at architectural masterpieces or incredible works of art. Paris is a big city that feels small and can capture an array of personalities with her distinct charm.
