Grand Circle Cruise Sails Into Rivers in France


Leading cruise company Grand Circle Cruise Line announced free airfare from all U.S. cities for its Spring 2020 river cruises in France. Travelers can save on March to June 2020 departures of Grand Circle’s cruises on France’s iconic rivers —the Seine and Rhone— reserved now through September 30, 2019.

Exploring Paris in the spring means milder temperatures and fewer crowds visiting popular sites. Travelers who embark on a Seine River Cruise from Paris will journey to the heartland of France, visiting the lovely landscapes of Giverny and experiencing a full day of D-Day discoveries in Normandy. On the Rhone River Cruise, travelers begin in Paris then cruise through gently sloping hills and vineyards aboard the latest river ship added to Grand Circle’s privately owned fleet—the luxurious M/S River Chanson. Highlights include a tour of historic Lyon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and an up-close look at ancient history in Vienne, a city known for its impressive Roman amphitheater and Corinthian columns.

Grand Circle Cruise Line’s award-winning fleet of privately-owned river ships operates throughout Europe. Travelers explore in groups of 38-45 and enjoy the camaraderie and family-like atmosphere while aboard Grand Circle’s 86- to 162-passenger ships. Grand Circle Cruise Line offers the guidance of local Program Directors, who accompany travelers throughout the trip, providing an insider’s perspective. Exclusive Discovery Series events take travelers into the heart of their destination’s culture, providing a glimpse at its people’s day-to-day lives.
