Day 1: PARIS
Our boat will be docked at the Bassin de la Villette, the very heart of Paris and only ten minutes away from the Eiffel Tower.
Passengers are welcome to board our ship at 6:00 p.m. After comfortably settling into your cabins, we'll introduce our crew at a welcome cocktail before dinner.
Day 2: Canal Saint Martin - PARIS and its famous sites
This morning will be spent cruising along the Canal Saint Martin towards the Quai de Grenelle. The Canal Saint Martin area has kept all the charm and romanticism from its former working-class-neighborhood days. Here, the elegant footbridges, the nine locks, and bustling quays bring back the atmosphere of the "Paris of Yesterday”, with a shabby-chic retro charm that is very fashionable at the moment. Afterwards, we will travel up the Seine, cruising past the Trocadero gardens and the Tuileries Park. This afternoon, you will be taken on an original walk through the prettiest covered arcades in Paris. At this time of year, the arcades are wonderfully illuminated as they shelter the colorful Christmas decorations adorning the facades of some of the most luxurious boutiques in the city. We will walk through time and history as we discover the area around Palais Royal, the Louvre and the Comédie Française. We'll return on board and set out for a cruise through beautifully illuminated Paris by night.
Day 3: Prestigious PARIS
This morning will be spent cruising on the Seine. This afternoon, we'll set out on a guided tour of the Capital: the legendary Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, where history, architecture, art, and society best symbolize the soul of the capital or the "Prestigious Paris" from the Place Vendôme, to the fashionable shopping street, Rue de la Paix, past the Opéra Garnier and the emblematic Haussmann Boulevard.
Enjoy some free time to revel in Christmas magic exploring one of the Christmas markets...We'll return on board tonight for our gala dinner and evening.
