Sailing: 06 September 2022

Live La Vie en Rose

Set out to sea from the Venice of the North—Amsterdam. Take in priceless works by Rembrandt and Van Gogh or cruise one of the city’s many canals before our evening departure. In Bruges, wander the maze of its medieval core, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Savor a dish of moules-frites (mussels in broth served with fries) Belgium’s unofficial national dish.

An overnight in Rouen puts Paris within easy reach and gives you ample time to savor delectable dining, view world-famous attractions or simply unwind at a chic outdoor café. Next in Honfleur, visit the D-Day Landing Beaches or stroll the cobbled laneways and admire the tall, narrow homes that line them. In Cherbourg, the D-Day Beaches of Normandy are steeped in military history, and in St. Malo, the iconic Mont Saint-Michel stands as a stalwart sentinel in the sand. With late stays in both captivating ports, you’ll have plenty of time to explore.

Next, spend a night at sea enjoying Azamara’s Broadway-caliber entertainment and a full suite of indulgent spa offerings before docking in the Loire Valley for an overnight stay. Explore Nantes’ picturesque gardens,galleries, and thriving art scene, then cruise to Bordeaux, where another overnight stay offers plenty of opportunity to sample the region’s excellent wines.
