Day 4: 06/05/2023 - Blaye, Bourg sur Gironde

The Route de la Corniche Fleurie…could this be the most beautiful road you've ever traveled? Find out today on the drive to Blaye Fortress, passing through one impossibly picturesque hamlet after another. Once you arrive, you'll discover the wonders of this historic fortress, a UNESCO-designated citadel that once protected Bordeaux from attacks by sea. In the evening, a special Captain's Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

Day 5: 06/06/2023 - Cussac Fort Medoc, Pauillac la Fayette

The legendary Medoc region abounds with prestigious wine chateaux in a dizzying array of architectural styles, as well as miles of grapevines stretching to infinity. Take a scenic drive through the storied Medoc wine route, followed by a wine tasting at a beautiful wine estate.

Day 6: 06/07/2023 - Cadillac

The French phrase "la douceur de vivre" is an accurate description for your time in Cadillac, known for its deliciously flavored dessert wines. Visit Chateau Royal de Cazeneuve, site of Henry IV's and Queen Margot's tempestuous love. Meet the owner around a glass of Sauternes in the reception hall. Note: Sailing this stretch of the Garonne depends on the tides. If it is not possible to sail to Cadillac, you will be transferred to your destination via motorcoach.

Day 7: 06/08/2023 - Libourne (Saint-Emilion)

With Libourne as your base, travel to nearby breathtaking Saint-Emilion and immerse yourself more deeply in the region's history and wine culture. The medieval town of Saint-Emilion is an ideal place to linger. Wander its cobblestone lanes lined with wine shops and bakeries, and stop to admire the amazing rock-hewn church that extends beneath the city's streets. Another treasure awaiting you underground? A wine tasting in the cellars of a Grand Cru estate. Note: Today`s lunch will be on your own; ask your Cruise Manager for recommendations on the best nearby restaurants.

Day 8: 06/09/2023 - Libourne, Bordeaux

France's rich agricultural tradition is the heart and soul of the region's exquisite cuisine - and what better way to get a taste for the freshest vegetables, cheeses, breads and fruits than with a visit to Libourne's lively farmers' market?
