Join Astoria in Poole in the early afternoon as she makes the short journey to Bournemouth Bay, arriving in time for the Air Show at the annual Bournemouth Air Festival. Enjoy front row seats as you view the display from the top deck, then settle in for your first evening on board as Astoria travel towards Normandy.
Today Astoria reaches Honfleur, set at the mouth of France's River Seine. Spend the morning discovering this historic maritime town, which was a favourite retreat of the French Impressionists and is recognised for its beautiful harbour lined by gabled houses.
Rejoin Astoria during the afternoon for her sailing along the River Seine towards Rouen, where she'll moor overnight.
Step ashore to explore Rouen, a beautifully restored ancient city with a stunning medieval centre. See the Place du Vieux-Marche, site of Saint Joan's martyrdom, the famous one-handed mechanical clock and the stunning Gothic cathedral, before returning to the ship this evening as Astoria begins her return journey.
Disembark Astoria in Poole this morning, after a delightful Normandy cruise.
