Why not take your next vacation to France on a French river cruise? In this post we'll break down many of your options no matter who you are and what you enjoy. There is truly a French cruise for everyone from wine tasting to rooftop camping. And if a 
guided cruise with river cruise experts (us) is on your bucket list, come along with us in 2020 for the France trip of the century!

Wine: Avalon

If drinking wine, learning about wine and watching wine production
is your favorite way to vacation, then 
our exclusive guided cruise along the Rhone River is perfect for you. This cruise (sailing in August 2020) is
one-of-a-kind, and curated just for our group. We will sail from Lyon to Arles
(with pre and post cruise options) all the while taking in the best of France,
and of course trying lots of wine! We will have a special wine host onboard
sailing with us for the entire cruise. Extra wine tastings guided by his
expertise will take your wine knowledge to the next level. This particular
cruise has a ton of exciting excursions to choose from, many incorporating
wine, including an e-bike ride so that you can indulge and use the electric
bike to get you easily back to the ship. Call us today to learn more and we can't wait to see you in France!

Family: Adventures by

No one does family like Disney, and that includes river
cruises in France. Adventures by Disney charters AmaWaterways vessels for their
European getaways. With many of the same amenities and excursions as you would
find on a non-Disney French river cruise, you will find the added features from
Disney will make all the difference. Excursions and guides are planned with
children in mind, so you won’t have to worry about your little ones getting
bored. And if Disney overload is a concern (but frankly how could it be) then
you will adore the Adventures by Disney option. Because the ships are from AmaWaterways, the décor is not over-the-top Disney. You also won’t find the characters lines onboard, so if that is a must, consider a Disney Cruise Line ocean
cruise instead. That being said, Disney is a great way to dip your toes into
the European travel scene, without the stress overload of planning a family
European vacation.

Millennials: U by

As of writing this, U by Uniworld is not currently offering
a rive cruise in France, but they have in the past, and there is no indication
that they won’t be again in the future. U by Uniworld is known for their fresh
and unique take on sailing, and that includes mixing up their itineraries to
keep their customers intrigued. Their past French river cruises sailed along
the Seine with stops in Paris and other popular French cities. While their
itineraries are unique, so are their ship experiences. Rooftop bar-b-ques, yoga
and camping are activities you will find on one of their cruises, as well as
mixology classes, street art tours and kayaking. Their décor and excursions are
geared towards the young, and the young-at-heart, so be sure to check out what
is new, and if you see a France trip be sure to get it booked, because things
move fast at U by Uniworld.

Luxury: Crystal Cruises

Crystal Cruises is one of the most luxurious river cruise
brands available. Every detail of a Crystal cruise is planned out with the utmost
care to make sure you feel pampered, and a bit spoiled. Crystal’s cruises are
all-inclusive, allowing more time to relax, and less time trying to access
different amenities. Crystal does not have a large number of itineraries in
France, like some other river cruise lines, but what they do offer is guaranteed
to be exciting. Crystal is known for having excellent food and more options for
dining then most river lines. And because it is all inclusive you don’t have to
think about where you want to dine, you just have to show up and enjoy!

Variety: Viking River

Viking is the undisputed leader in river cruising, and if
variety and selection are important to you, then Viking in your line. From
eight-day cruises focused on a specific area, to fifteen-day cruises that
showcase all France has to offer, you are sure to find the perfect French
cruise to satisfy all your desires with Viking. Every detail of a Viking River
Cruise is thoughtfully planned out and they are known for their informative and
friendly staff onboard. If you want to be assured you will have a wonderful river
cruise, choose Viking.

From Our Clients...

Spectacular Shore Excursions

"Everything worked out even better than planned. On all three shore excursions we met people in the bus who said they appreciated those excursions and they were far better than the ones offered by the ship. We, too, were impressed with the quality of the excursions and tour guides. The cruise was spectacular and all the arrangements made in advance were spectacular."
– Jayne W. - Norwegian Cruise Line

Service & Savings

“I have thrown just about every curveball I'vegot at Rachel and your folks and you've handled them all without breaking a sweat. A long cruise with tours in a foreign country? No problem. Erratic friends who can't make up their mind if they want to go or not? No problem. Last minute hotel bookings needed? No problem. And should I mention the bonuses? Getting random calls to let us know we've been upgraded in our cabinor the cruise fare has dropped? Extra onboard credit? I use a travel agency so I don't have to worry. With TravelPerks, not only do I not have to worry, I'm happily surprised at the GOOD that happens. I recommend TravelPerks on ANY opportunity I've got.”

– Dante G - Program Manager @ Microsoft
