From vineyards and beaches to galleries and patisseries, you'll find plenty of charm and intrigue on a cruise of France

When it comes to enjoying a diverse array of experiences and locales, France is difficult to beat. Whether it be stunning rolling countryside, beautiful beaches, or lively towns and cities full of culture, the country provides it in troves. With a cruise of France you can make the most of this variety, and see the very best of the region while travelling in comfort and in style. 

Our France cruises provide ample chances to see the country's most enchanting sights and attractions. Wine lovers will be delighted by some time spent in pretty Bordeaux, with its family run vineyards, tasting cellars and the Cité du Vin wine museum. There is also the chance to explore the rich history of this UNESCO-listed port city, visiting sites such as Cathédrale Saint-André and the Grand Théâtre. 

Many of our France cruises also include a visit to the charming region of Normandy, where travellers can explore its deep maritime history. The town of Honfleur is a very welcome addition to the itinerary, with its centuries-old cobbled streets and beautiful old buildings. The Vieux Bassin district here is a particular hit, with its pleasant fishing harbour and striking traditional architecture.

Elsewhere, guests on board one of our cruises can enjoy the fine wines, gorgeous landscapes, fascinating culture and rich heritage in other regions and towns including the Loire Valley, the Côte d'Azur and medieval Mont St Michel.
