A musical cruise on France’s most famous river

Download the booking form

Our cruise along France’s spectacular River Seine follows our regular pattern of choral cruising with exclusive use of a boat: the Amadeus Diamond – a five-star river boat in the grand style from the same company as our sold-out Rhône and Danube cruises. This cruise combines what is probably the most romantic city in the world with a fascinating journey into the landscapes of the Impressionist masters: van Gogh, Cézanne, Monet and Gauguin.  There will be a variety of optional off-boat excursions, including the D-Day landing beaches, Giverny and Versailles.

Brian Kay directs our daily choral sessions, with pianist Maria Marchant, and has made a compilation of popular French choral pieces specially for this cruise. We will also enjoy Songs of a Rainbow Nation by Alexander l’Estrange. More details here
