SEN - Paris and Normandy Cruise Break Itinerary

Day 1 - Paris (France)

Boarding and settling into your cabin between 6pm and 7pm. The crew will be introduced to you during the welcome cocktail. You will then take your place in the restaurant for your first dinner on board, during which (depending on the water level) you will be able to admire the most wonderful locations of Paris by night. Shimmering in a thousand and one lights, Paris exercises an almost magical power of attraction. We will glide silently past the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais, the Orangerie, the Louvre and Notre-Dame Cathedral which dominates the Ile de la Cité. The first day is particularly rich in new sights and sounds.

Day 2 - Paris - Les Andelys - Rouen

After a morning's cruising, depart by coach for the optional visit to the Chateau de Martainville. Alternatively, take the optional tour to Chateau Gaillard. During this time, the boat will sail to Rouen where we will re-join it and start cruising towards Honfleur.

Arrival in Honfleur depending on the tides. The morning will be devoted to the optional guided tour of the Honfleur and Pont l'Eveque.

Continue with a tasting of the small square-shaped cheese that has carried the town's name since the 12th century. Return to Honfleur for a guided tour on foot. Back to the boat for lunch. In the afternoon there is a choice of optional excursions: stroll along the La Cote d'Albatre between cliffs and villages and take the Benedictine liqueur; or hike across the cliffs of Etretat to bask in the landscapes that have been dramatically shaped by the weather.
