Paris & Normandy (2017) : S.S. Joie de Vivre

8 Days From Paris To Paris


A scenic adventure along the Seine, highlighting the treasures of northern France.

Embark upon Uniworld's newest Super Ship-the S.S. Joie de Vivre-as you immerse yourself in a fascinating and inviting land, rich in legend, history and art. Feast your eyes on iconic French landscapes, scenes forever captured on canvas by generations of painters. Stand on the Japanese bridge immortalized in some of Monet's most beloved works, gazing upon the colorful blooms and graceful willow trees that so famously inspired the artist. Revel in the tales of long-ago smugglers in the picturesque port of Honfleur, tread in the footsteps of Vincent van Gogh in the town he once called home, and discover the many wonders of the City of Light, from instantly recognizable landmarks to hidden corners known only to Parisians.
