Mini-cruise on river of romance

Love is in the air for a magical Valentine’s Day in Paris

  • All-inclusive sailing, drinks and tips included
  • Travel service to and from Southampton

With an accordionist providing typically French musical accompaniment, a magical atmosphere is promised as Spirit of Discovery arrives in Rouen at dusk, just as the lights flicker on in the ‘City of a Hundred Spires’.

This Rendezvous in Rouen voyage features a cruise along the River Seine for a two-night mooring in northern Normandy’s capital, the perfect place to stroll in the medieval ambience of narrow streets and half-timbered houses.

The romance continues on Valentine’s Day with the opportunity to visit Paris to see the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, visit the Louvre, explore the city’s bohemian side in Montmartre, or to simply enjoy the café culture.

The ship’s Explore Ashore team offers expert knowledge to help guests choose a restaurant for a candlelit dinner or arrange bespoke tours to suit interests from art to architecture, and music to history.

On board complimentary drinks include selected wines with lunch and dinner, house-branded spirits and cocktails, draught beer and lager, plus all mixers and soft drinks so guests can relax on our stunning new ship and raise a glass to romance during their unique mini-cruise.
