Luxury River Cruising in France

"I just wish there was an even higher rating. Uniworld deserves it."

- Carol, Grand France, 2015 (5-star Feefo guest review)


The Adventure Begins

Imagine awakening from a restful slumber in a handcrafted bed… outside your window, you glimpse a riverside scene that has endured for centuries. Where are you? Onboard a luxurious Uniworld ship as it arrives in a picturesque French port. You might start your day with Sun Salutations with the ship’s Wellness Coach, followed by a lavish Champagne breakfast. Today’s menu features fresh juices and smoothies, made-to-order eggs and omelets, fruit, cheeses and yogurts, and much more, including a dizzying array of baked goods. Head ashore with a choice of excursions, pamper yourself onboard in the Serenity River Spa, or simply gaze out at the ever-changing view. Pure bliss.


Dinner, Dessert & Dancing

Dinner onboard is a multi-course feast, with a choice of entrees paired with regional wines selected by Uniworld’s own sommeliers. Your ship’s culinary team finds inspiration in local dishes and delicacies—they may serve duck confit and caviar d’Aquitaine in Bordeaux, a rustic tarte tatin topped with cream in Normandy, and succulent seafood and sun-ripened olives in Burgundy and Provence. The decadent desserts are miniature works of art, and there’s always a wide selection of fresh local cheeses. Take a whirl on the dance floor, enjoy entertainment in the lounge, or step outside to admire the moon as the ship silently slips through darkened waters. Sweet dreams await.

The scenic rivers of France offer Uniworld guests an abundance of delightful experiences. Whether its charming cafes in Paris, the historic beaches of Normandy, Provençal villages set amidst fields of sunflowers, or world-class food and wine, our luxurious, all-inclusive 2016 itineraries make it possible to savor the French joie de vivre in a multitude of ways.
