Essence of Burgundy & Provence Cruise Review

“I’ve visited Provence and Burgundy many times but I’ve never been so impressed by a cruise as I have with this one. This has been the first cruise in a long time to truly invigorate me, and when you’ve been sailing for as long as I have that feeling of having experienced something truly unique and wonderful dwindles. I’m pleased to say that this was not the case here. I had the best time I’ve had in a very long time and I cannot wait to see what Ama have planned for my Mekong cruise next year. I’m sure it’ll be just as wonderful as my Essence of Burgundy and Provence one!”

Essence of Burgundy & Provence FAQ

Find answers to some of the most common questions about river cruising here.

Are there leisure activities on board during the cruise?

Yes, we provide many onboard amenities with which you can occupy your time, including the whirlpool on the sun deck, the fitness room, and a hair salon.

What are some of the key attractions along the Rhone and Saone rivers?

Highlights of the two rivers include the historic city of Lyon, the picturesque landscapes of Burgundy, the mediaeval town of Avignon, and much more!

How much free time is available for passengers during the cruise?

Itineraries are designed to balance excursions with free time so passengers can explore independently or relax on board, and while amount of free time can vary, you can have as much leisure time as you want outside of excursions. Opt for independent exploration of your ports of call or stay on the ship instead of signing up for activities offered on the itinerary.
