Fly Dublin to Paris, transfer to the port to meet the ship MS France. Boarding between 6.00 and 7.00pm. Meet the crew during a welcome cocktail reception before enjoying a pleasant dinner in the dining room as the ship cruises off on the Seine (depending on the water level) for a magical tour of Paris by night. Enjoy views of the Eiffel Tower, Grand Palais, Orangerie, the Louvre museum and Notre Dame cathedral. Overnight stopover.


Early start cruising along the Seine passing the futuristic quarter of la Defense with its striking combination of glass and concrete architecture. Lunch on board before stopping off in Conflans Sainte Honorine. Take the opportunity to leave on a sightseeing tour (optional) to the Versailles castle. World heritage sites and without doubt the most handsome and complete achievement of 17th century French art. Return to the ship around 6.30pm in Mantes la Jolie before continuing on towards Vernon. Dinner on board and overnight stop.


Early morning start and breakfast while sailing towards Rouen, sailing along Les Andelys and Amfreville. Lunch while cruising. Arrive in Rouen at around 1.30pm. Leave on a guided tour of this old town, former capital of Normandy, and visit among others, its fine cathedral, historic quarters and the “Place du Vieux Marché” where Joan of Arc was burned alive at the stake. Return to the ship and sail on to Caudebec-en-Caux, arriving there in the evening where we stop of briefly to welcome on board a pilot, before cruising on to Honfleur (subject to the tides). Dinner and a gala evening.


Honfleur, our last port of call – arrival times in the port of Honfleur are subject to the tides. Stop off to visit this splendid town which lies at the mouth of the Seine at the point where it flows into the channel. Join the sightseeing tour of the town which will take you through the old port which is just as it was in the 17th century. Quay side dwellings were very much sought after in those times, therefore only extremely narrow plots of land were sold. This explains the unusual architecture with tall buildings, sometimes up to 7 floors high! In the background, admire the church of St Catherine which was built in the shape of a ship by local carpenters, entirely out of wood. Full day guided tour (lunch included) to the beaches of the Normandy landings. Departure by coach to reach Pointe du Hoc passing the towns of Omaha Beach, Coleville sur Mer and its American cemetery. We stop in Arromanches after lunch to watch the film “The Price of Liberty”. Return to the ship for dinner before taking a last stroll around the old port, which is beautifully lit up at night. Overnight stop.


Last breakfast before disembarking. Transfer back to Paris Airport for your return flight to Dublin. End of a memorable cruise.
