Uniworld ~ Parisian Royal Holiday

The allure of Paris and Northern France during the holidays is like a dazzling holiday package just waiting to be unwrapped! Visit this magical place at this most festive time of year and create memories you will never forget. Sample traditional Normandy pancakes and cider while in Les Andelys. In the Medieval town of Rouen, browse through the traditional Christmas Market. Later in the day, be enchanted by an ethereal church choir recital at magnificent Rouen Cathedral, which was famously memorialized in Monet’s paintings.

On an elegant ship like the River Baroness, meals are truly an intriguing buffet for all the senses. From a delightful glass of beautifully aged pinot noir wine, to the familiar sounds of friends together in pleasant conversation, to the impeccable flavors of each dish, these dining experiences have been arranged to help bring you the most pleasing of vacations. Our crew is completely devoted to going the extra mile for all of our guests. River Baroness was just recently recognized in ZAGAT* Survey for “Top in Dining”. She is part of the only river cruise company to be noted as “best of the best” all throughout cruise industry.
