Fly Free to Europe as part of a new, double river cruise package in 2021 covering the north and south of France

May 21, 2020 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Fervent Francophiles who love France will love a new 2021 package that includes free flights to Europe, two, luxury, back-to-back river cruises showcasing the north and south of France and three nights in a five-star hotel in the world’s most romantic city, Paris.

The exclusive, 20-night ‘France from North to South’ package is being offered by luxury, European river cruise operator, Riviera Travel River Cruises, and their Australian representative, Cruise Traveller.

The package includes a seven-night cruise on the Seine River through Normandy in the north of France and another seven-night cruise on the Rhone through Burgundy and Provence in the south of France. Free, return flights to Europe are offered as part of the package, with three departure dates from Australia available in 2021 – July 18, September 12 and October 10.

The holiday begins with a night’s stay in a luxury hotel in Paris before guests board Riviera Travel River Cruises’ five-star river ship, MS Jane Austen, for a seven-night return cruise on the Seine River. The journey takes in the D-Day beaches of Normandy, the famous home and garden of Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, in Giverny, the mighty castle, Chateau Gaillard, built in the 12th century near Rouen by Richard the Lionheart, and the pretty, pastel-coloured, 18th century houses in the fishing port of Honfleur, which Monet also portrayed in his paintings. Nine guided tours are included in the cruise.

At the end of the Seine cruise, guests will live it up in a luxury Paris hotel for two nights, with free time to explore the city, before a short flight to Lyon to begin the second cruise, a seven-night cruise along the Rhone and Saone rivers to Chalon and Avignon aboard Riviera Travel River Cruises’ five-star river ship, MS Lord Byron. Highlights include the medieval villages and vine-cloaked hillsides of Burgundy and Provence, visits to wineries, rugged gorges, the towering Roman aqueduct, Pont du Gard, and the majestic, 14th century fortified city of Avignon – home to the former Pope’s Palace. Seven guided tours are included in the cruise.

From Avignon, guests will be transferred to Marseille on the French Riviera for the flight home to Australia.

Cruise Traveller Product Manager, Sam Patton, who has taken a Riviera Travel cruise on the Rhone said: “I never imagined that the South of France could be so fascinating.  I was blown away by the enormous architectural feat of the Pont du Gard and the stunning natural beauty of the Ardeche Gorges – both of which, I am ashamed to say, I never knew existed before travelling on this cruise!  Along with ancient ruins, fields of fruits and flowers and locals who take the time to enjoy life, I am so glad that I visited and hope one day to visit again.”

Including the two cruises, accommodation in Paris, transfers and guided shore excursions, the 20-night ‘France from North to South’ package is available from A$8945 per person, twin-share. Free return flights to France from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth are offered for bookings made by August 31, 2020. There are three departure dates available in 2021 – July 18, September 12 and October 10.
