The Seine Paris and Normandy River Cruise Review

“Embarking on The Seine Paris and Normandy River Cruise was an incredible experience that I won’t soon forget! I had the chance to explore historic locations like Rouen and Bayeux which were both absolutely beautiful and each had their own unique charm. I also very much enjoyed the tour of Paris where I got to visit the Eiffel Tower and the Notre-Dame Cathedral which both left me in awe, as did the other wonderful landmarks. The meals aboard the ship were phenomenal too and I highly recommend anyone considering booking this cruise to do so, if not for the excursions and activities then for the amazing cuisine!”
