It’s not hard to see why river cruising has been and remains so very popular. It’s a great way to relax, enjoy the sounds and nature of the river and soak up beautiful scenery. As well as countryside, you’ll pass through historic towns and cities along the way plus enjoy time on shore at various places of interest.
A memorable holiday including the sights of Paris, the most romantic city in the world and following the beautiful landscape of the River Seine Valley with its wide open spaces and vibrant towns, which so influenced the famous Impressionist painters.
Following the success and popularity of this River Cruise in 2018 with Croisi Europe Cruises – one of the premium brands in the market, we have secured space on the same cruise for 2021. Places are strictly limited with upgrades available. Modern cruise boats offer excellent quality accommodation and facilities.
