Experience La Vie en Rose

Start your journey with an overnight in Bordeaux, the scenic gateway to France’s largest wine-making region. Treat yourself to two days of tours and tastings through the area’s nearly 2,000 years of winemaking history.

Discover wine and a thriving art scene with another overnight in Nantes, Loire Valley before sailing into Brest where you can immerse yourself in this maiden port’s seafaring culture with a stroll along the docks at the Quai Commandant-Malbert.

A late stay in St. Malo, home to the jewel of Mont-Saint-Michel, gives you plenty of time to explore this astonishingly scenic setting. Another late night in Cherbourg gives the opportunity for a tour up the coast to the beaches of Normandy, steeped in military history.

The cobbled lanes of half-timbered houses and elegant manors of Honfleur are next, then an overnight in the City of Light, Paris. Visit St. Peter Port on Guernsey in the Channel Islands before arriving in Portland. A tiny island dangling off the rugged Dorset coast, it delivers history, adventure, and sparkling seaside views at every turn before your final stop in Southampton.
