Seine, Paris & Monet's Garden Discovery River Cruise - MS Jane Austen

4days from
£999*per person


4 Days - River Cruises


  • Arrive in Paris  On arrival in Paris, we'll transfer to our ship MS Jane Austen. Fully refurbished in late 2024, this ship will be the perfect base for our short break in central France.  Our welcoming, English-speaking crew will be ready to assist you in finding your cabin. After settling in, take some time to explore the many first-class amenities of this floating boutique hotel before sitting down to your first delicious dinner in our stylish onboard restaurant. Later this evening, we'll begin our voyage downstream.
  • Morning sailing  Enjoy a leisurely breakfast as we cruise along the Seine this morning. After you've perused the breakfast buffet, we recommend heading to the panoramic lounge or sun deck where you can truly appreciate the tranquillity of sailing through France. Rounding the sweeping bends so typical of the Seine, we'll pass lush pastures, high hedgerows and a few of the quaint towns and villages that line its banks.    Monet's Garden  During lunch onboard, our crew will gracefully moor in Vernon. From here, we'll take a short journey to Giverny to visit Monet's house and garden. While Monet is renowned for his impressionist artworks, many do not know that he was equally passionate about his garden, calling it his 'most beautiful masterpiece'. (It's certainly one of the world's most photographed and painted!) As though stepping into his most famous works, we'll explore the Japanese-inspired water garden, shaded by great weeping willows and surrounded by bamboo, rhododendrons and azaleas, to see the lily pond where he painted his extraordinary Les Nymphéas (Water Lilies) series. There's ample time to wander here, basking in the serene atmosphere. This evening, we'll enjoy a culinary highlight of the trip, our special Chef's Dinner. The chef serves up his signature dishes, influenced by many regions of France. As we dine, the ship begins its journey upstream before docking overnight in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine.   Included experience  Guided visit of Monet's house and garden 
  • Morning sailing  If you're an early riser, why not stroll around Conflans before our breakfast departure towards the iconic French capital? Then, there's time to sit back and relax as we enjoy another morning of scenic sailing in the comfort of our beautiful ship.    Paris  Mooring in Paris after lunch, we'll take a guided tour of Paris in the company of a local expert. We'll see many of the outstanding monuments Paris has to offer - including the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, the Trocadéro, the Musee D'Orsay and much more before returning to the ship for another exceptional dinner. On your last evening, you could make the most of our Superior drink package and share an included drink with your fellow explorers in the lounge. Raise a glass to an enjoyable journey on MS Jane Austen.   Included experience  Guided tour of Paris 
  • It's time to say goodbye to the crew aboard MS Jane Austen and transfer to the airport or train station for your journey home after a memorable few days cruising along the Seine on the five-star vessel.
