Paris Normandy Cruise

7 Days • April 8-15, 2023
Experience the grandeur of Northern France on a journey through art, culture, and the Bayeux Tapestry aboard AMAWaterway’s wine cruise.
Dear Quilters and Friends,

Paris always sizzles while Normandy beckons with its stunning coastline, incredible food and artistic beauty. Monet’s Gardens, Rouen’s Cathedral of Notre Dame and the charming harbor town of Honfleur, will inspire you the same way as they inspired the great Impressionists.

The fabric of France

For inspiration of a different kind, travel the “Routes des Abbayes,” visiting some of the most magnificent monasteries, and to the unforgettable beaches of Normandy where Allied forces landed during WWII’s D-Day invasion. Relive the grandeur of royalty at Château Malmaison, the former home of Napoleon and Josephine Bonaparte, and at Chateau de Bizy, once re-ferred to as “the Versailles of Normandy.” Blend a passion for the good life with culture, art, architecture and timeless landscapes, and you have Northern France.

The highlight of this cruise will be a visit to the Bayeux Tapestry. The Bayeux Tapestry tells the epic story, in wool thread embroidered on linen cloth, of William, Duke of Normandy who became King of England in 1066 after the Battle of Hastings. The visit to the museum is or-ganised in three sections, providing an understanding of the work and its context.

A premier bouquet

If that is not enough, this is one of AMAWaterways’ wine cruises! You will have the choice to join special tours that are designed to bring Europe’s rich wine heritage to life and, what’s more, a dedicated wine expert will be on board to lead tastings and suggest pairings with our award-winning cuisine.

With get-togethers, shopping time and surprises along the way, this will be an unforgettable trip of a lifetime with your fellow quilters!

Best wishes and hope to see you soon,
