In April 2019, CroisiEurope will welcome a new culinary-focused itinerary sailing the Rhone River on its new vessel, the MS Rhone Princess.
With departures scheduled for April through October 2019, the 7-day Must-See Sites on the Rhone itinerary will travel roundtrip from Lyon and visit Arles, Avignon, Viviers and Tain L’Hermitage, while also taking in the views of Provence and the Camargue. Highlights of the cruise include a guided tour of the Cite du Chocolat—located on the site of Valrhona’s historic chocolate factory—where guests will learn how chocolate is made; a tasting of local specialties at the covered market of Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse; and an optional dinner at Paul Bocuse’s restaurant Abbaye de Collonges where guests can indulge in a dinner especially designed by chefs trained by Bocuse, who was known as ‘le Pape de gastronomie’ for his innovative approaches to cuisine.
Rates for this itinerary start at $1,953 pp including all meals and drinks onboard, plus excursions as described on the itinerary, insurances and port fees.
