Rhône River Cruises

Experience the charming Rhône Valley on our deluxe Rhône River Cruises

Slowly flowing towards the Mediterranean Sea from beautiful old Lyon, the Rhône cuts a serene path through the heart of France. Medieval cities and Roman ruins line the waterway as it journeys south through ancient villages and prosperous towns. Gallic heritage can be experienced on every bend of this beautiful river, from the rustic settlements dotted along the waterway to the acres of wine-producing vineyards.

A slow and relaxed way of life takes hold the further south you journey on our Rhône river cruises, under the watchful gaze of the Mediterranean sun. Long, lazy lunches and midday glasses of wine become the norm in this delightful part of France, giving you plenty of chance to take in the beautiful scenery.

The Emerald Liberté has been custom-built for river cruising along the Rhône; the delightful Sun Deck is the perfect location to watch the stunning backdrop pass by, a glass of a local vintage in hand.

Explore France’s Foodie Capital

Since 1935, France’s second city, Lyon, has proudly boasted the unofficial title of ‘world capital of gastronomy’. A rustic approach to cooking started in the city in the 19th century, when middle-class women left their homes to work as cooks and help to craft new culinary traditions and world-renowned dishes.

These culinary traditions can be sampled today in the charming bouchons of Lyon, small, traditional restaurants serving old-fashioned dishes and local wines. The dishes found in the city’s 20 remaining bouchons are rich and warming; the atmosphere found in each is both friendly and personable. 

Our brand new Sensations of Southern France river cruise itinerary starts with an overnight on-board stay in Lyon, and then a full day in the city to enjoy the rich culinary heritage and explore all the stunning sights.

Cruise the Rhône

The Rhône is a beautiful river, wending its way from the Swiss Alps maritime through Provence, with port calls in the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Arles and Avignon, once home to the Papacy, tours of the Beaujolais wine region, visits to quaint villages like Tournon, Vienne, and Lyon, France’s culinary heart. Romantic settings, quaint villages, stunning scenery, French flavors and rolling vineyards are yours to discover on your river cruise from Lyon to Chalon-sur-Saône, then onto Avignon and Arles.
