The Seine Experience (8 Days)

Cruise Line: Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection
Ship: Varies by Departure
Paris, France to Paris, France
Paris, France

Included - Paris: Shines Bright at Night: "The City of Light" shines brightest at night. Discover Paris in her evening dress with a walk under the bridges along the trendy and alluring Seine bank. From the Grenelle Bridge, take the steps down to the island and check out the Statue of Liberty. Continue on the Alée des Cygnes and catch a glimpse of the metro on the viaduct. Complete your sensual stroll with pictures at the Eiffel Tower. It sparkles at midnight.

Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, France

U Time - Van Gogh: Follow in Vincent van Gogh's footsteps in the quaint village of Auvers-sur-Oise, where the artist spent the final months of his life in the late 1800s.

Rouen, France

Included - The Best of Rouen: This is grocery shopping like you've never done it before. Follow your chef through Rouen, France, a city known for its hundreds of bell towers and iconic art installations. Roam medieval streets lined with half-timbered houses and slated roofs constructed during William the Conqueror's rule. Make your way to the town farmer's market, built where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake, and hand-select ingredients for dinner. The fish, butter, and cream are the healthiest and freshest in the region. And if there's one rule we live by, it's that butter makes everything better. Included Night Out - Rouen lights and sounds: Experience an emotive light show about the storied past of Rouen, at the city's Gothic cathedral after dark. English medieval history is closely linked to Rouen: Richard the Lionheart was crowned Duke of Normandy in town. Joan of Arc was executed nearby in the second half of the Hundred Years' War. Strong traditions of arts and crafts give Rouen a unique sensibility. Honor the past and ponder the future of Normandy's cultured, historic, and vibrant capital. U Time - Normandy Beaches: Travel back in time to June 6, 1944, when the Allied forces launched their D-Day invasion of Normandy. You'll visit historic beaches and stop at the American Cemetery for a special memorial ceremony. Later, get an up-close gander at the centuries-old (and incredibly long) Bayeux Tapestry. U Time - Old City Bar Crawl: Join a dialed-in local expert for a curated look at the city's lively nightlife scene, stopping for drinks at memorable bars in Rouen's atmospheric historic quarter.

Caudebec-en-caux, France
Honfleur, France

Included - Honfleur Wander: Ports don't come any prettier than Honfleur, located in the estuary where the Seine meets the English Channel. Wade in and explore a seaside French town primed for lazy discovery. Wander the back alleys and art studios that spawned Impressionism. Make your way through the different sides of the Vieux Bassin, each with a unique charm. Feel inspired by the sleepy bustle of a town that was home to composer Erik Satie and seafarer Samuel de Champlain. Life's relaxed today. U Time - A Norman Day: Enjoy an intimate look at Normandy's famous apple orchards on a visit to a cider farm, complete with a home-style lunch. From there, head to Deauville Beach, a resort town with a wide sandy beach, 1920s-style boardwalk, chic boutiques, and elegant homes. U Time - Cliffs Of Étretat: The windswept cliffs of Étretat, part of France's famous Alabaster Coast, offer dramatic views that will literally take your breath away. Spend some time today walking the footpath atop the cliffs and along the beautiful beach below.

Vernon, France
Giverny, France

La Roche-guyon, France

Then it's off to Giverny, an artist's village set against the hills, for beautiful greenery and storybook views. Save your Instagram filters for another time. You won't need them out here. U Time - Kayak The Seine: Leave the real world far behind as you kayak along the beautiful and tranquil Seine River with an expert guide. U Time - Monet's Gardens: Impressionist master Claude Monet lived in Giverny for 40 years, and his iconic ponds and lush flower gardens inspired some of his best-known work.

Check out all the must-see spots including the Eiffel Tower, Orsay Museum, Latin Quarter at Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Notre Dame, Champs-Élysées, and Beaugrenelle shopping mall. Can't get enough? That means you're doing Paris right. Good thing this excursion is offered two days in a row. U Time - Lady Marmalade: Experience dinner and a show at the world-famous Moulin Rouge, immortalized in paintings by Toulouse-Lautrec and synonymous with high-spirited music and can-can dancers. If you love feathers and sequins, this is an evening you'll never forget. U Time - Parisian Cuisine: The City of Light is also a city for serious foodies.
