Reflections on the Seine – Cruise Only Southbound

Begin your Seine River cruise in the city of Le Havre, France. You’ll board your Avalon Suite Ship® and cruise to Rouen for an excursion to Normandy. Tours of the WWII landing beaches, memorials, and monuments, or a “Taste of Normandy” tour to discover the farming traditions and culinary specialties are offered today. Next day, your visit to Rouen includes a walking tour of the village where Joan of Arc was martyred, as well as the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Astronomical Clock.

Your river cruise on the Seine sails on to Les Andelys for guided tours of this picturesque village, and nearby castle ruins. Then, continue on to Vernon to visit the home of master artist Claude Monet at the gardens of Giverny, or visit magnificent Bizy Castle. Cruise to Conflans and choose between an excursion to visit Auvers-sur-Oise or Napoleon and Josephine’s Château de Malmaison.

You’ll disembark in Paris—the “City of Lights”—with reflections of a French river cruise full of history, art, and stunning scenery. You’ll long reflect on this remarkable river cruise on the Seine, and the remembrances of history, heroes, and artists brought to life.
