Day 1

Paris

Passengers are welcome to board our ship at 6:00 p.m. After comfortably settling into your cabins, we’ll introduce our crew at a welcome cocktail before dinner. Our ship will be docked in the centre of the city.

Day 2

Canal Saint Martin - Paris and its famous sites

This morning will be spent cruising along the Canal Saint Martin towards the Quai de Grenelle. The Canal Saint Martin area has kept all the charm and romanticism from its former working-class-neighbourhood days. Here, the elegant footbridges, the nine locks, and bustling quays bring back the atmosphere of the “Paris of Yesteryear”, with a shabby-chic retro charm that is very fashionable at the moment. Afterwards, we will travel up the Seine, cruising past the Trocadero gardens and the Tuileries Park. This afternoon, you will be taken on an original walk through the prettiest covered arcades in Paris. At this time of year, the arcades are wonderfully illuminated as they shelter the colourful Christmas decorations adorning the facades of some of the most luxurious boutiques in the city. We will walk through time and history as we discover the area around Palais Royal, the Louvre and the Comédie Française. We'll return on board and set out for a cruise through beautifully illuminated Paris by night (depending on water levels.)

Day 3

Prestigious Paris

Join us on a guided tour of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. This morning, we'll discover Prestigious Paris from the Place Vendôme and its jewellery stores famous the world over, to the fashionable shopping street, Rue de la Paix: prepare to be blown away by the surrounding beauty! We'll then walk past the Opéra Garnier to reach the emblematic Haussmann Boulevard where you can enjoy time at leisure to marvel at the legendary stores. We'll return on board after our walk. This afternoon, you'll be transferred by coach to one of the Christmas Markets in the city. We'll return on board tonight for our gala dinner and evening.
