S.S. Bon Voyage Overview

Uniworld's S.S. Bon Voyage (formerly River Royale) offers 7-night itineraries between March and November, start and end from the French city of Bordeaux, through the French region of the same name. Cruises travel the Garonne, Dordogne and Gironde rivers of SW France. Bordeaux is a famous food and wine area. Dine from master-chef menus, meet the wine-makers of the region, and partake of wine tasting, alongside the backdrop of châteaux and vineyards. Walk or cycle through the countryside, and explore historic French villages. This itinerary runs a Wellness Program. An optional pre-cruise extension is a three-day stay in Paris. If you have the time, join the Bordeaux cruise with a cruise out of Paris on the Seine with S.S. Joie de Vivre, for 14 nights. And, add another 7 nights to connect by fast train from Paris with S.S. Catherine in the south of France on the Rhône River.

Breakfasts and lunches are full buffet with an extensive array of hot and cold items, and individually prepared items are available.
