Azamara Quest
Sailing: June 10, 2024

Cruise to La Belle France with Azamara

Your journey begins with an overnight in Bordeaux. You can sample the region’s excellent wines before setting sail for La Rochelle. Then, it’s off to the Loire Valley for an overnight stay filled with picturesque gardens and a thriving art scene.

Immerse yourself in the seafaring culture in Brest, then get ready for a late night stay in St. Peter Port, Channel Islands where you’ll have plenty of time for rambles through the bucolic interior. 

In St. Malo, the iconic Mont Saint-Michel stands as a stalwart sentinel in the sand, and in Cherbourg, the D-Day Beaches of Normandy are steeped in military history. With late stays in both, you’ll have plenty of time to explore.

In Bruges, a UNESCO World Heritage site, wander the maze of its medieval core before setting out for the final overnight of your voyage, this time in Amsterdam. Take in priceless works by Rembrandt and Van Gogh before our evening departure.

Cruise Highlights

  • In La Rochelle, a visit to the Lantern Tower is a must, if only to gaze upon the 16,000 lbs bell that was installed in 1759.
  • Go beneath the water’s surface at Océanopolis, Europe’s biggest open-air aquarium, located in Brest.
  • Look up during a stop at Honfleur’s Sainte Catherine church—the ceiling resembles an overturned ship hull.
  • With more canals than Venice, Amsterdam is a winding wonder of waterways just waiting to be explored.
