Unveiled this week, the 116-page brochure debuts the line’s 23- day Belle Epoch: London to Monte Carlo tour.

The luxury vessel will take guests to Etretat, Honfleur, Normandy, Rouen, Breuil-en-Auge, Giverny, Vernon, Auvers-sur-Oise and Paris where guests will disembark to take a high-speed train to Lyon where the cruise along the Rhone begins.
