Emerald Cruises Sets Sail On A French Escape

Emerald Cruises has launched ‘Your Great French Escape’ sale, offering Canadians savings on all 2023 French river cruises for new bookings made by August 15, 2022.

The regions of France’s Lyon and Provence are well known for their gastronomic delights, famous wines and long histories – and are the centrepieces for Emerald Cruises’ eight-day Sensations of Lyon and Provence.

Fares for the eight-day sailing, with the CAD $600 per couple and 10% SEB savings included, start at CAD $3,916 per person, double.

Extending the vacation is easy as Emerald Cruises offers several two- and three-night city stays. Two nights in Paris staying at the luxury and centrally-located Jardin du Marais Hotel includes a city tour and scenic cruise on the Seine; while three nights in Nice is the perfect place to explore the beautiful seaside city – walking the shoreline, sipping wine in local cafes, and maybe stepping into one of the world-famous casinos in nearby Monte Carlo. Two nights in the birthplace of artist Paul Cézanne, Aix-en-Provence, offers a tranquil environment and time to wander the public squares, take in the 17th- and 18th-cenury mansions and stick your head into the Musée Ganet, renowned for its devotion to the paintings, sculptures, and archaeology of France.
