Discover the riches of a great French wine region on this seven-night cruise aboard the 132-guest River Royale. Cruise the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers in Aquitaine, a long-contested area marked by English influence but still profoundly French. Celebrate the culinary heritage of southwestern France on board with regional specialties and a gourmet dinner devised by a French master chef. On daily shore excursions, sample Arcachon oysters and other delicacies and taste the celebrated Bordeaux wines at châteaux and wine estates. Explore the elegant capital city of Bordeaux and such charming towns as Bergerac and Saint-Émilion. This cruise yields bounteous rewards, from wine and cuisine to noble châteaux, extraordinary landscapes and cultural insights. Join talks and discussions with Diane Rehm, host of The Diane Rehm Show on NPR stations. You may extend your sojourn in France with several pre-cruise days in Toulouse or with a post-tour in the Loire Valley, another region beloved for its wines, châteaux and extraordinary landscapes.
