Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1: Bordeaux (Embarkation Day)

Arrive at Bordeaux-Mérignac International Airpor and transfer to the ship.

Day 2: Cruising the Garonne River and Gironde Estuary, Cussac Fort Médoc, Pauillac la Fayette

Journey from Bordeaux, the “Pearl of the Aquitaine,” a famed wine-growing region, to the historical village of Cussac-Fort-Médoc, before arriving in coastal Pauillac later in the afternoon. Pauillac, once a crucial enemy stronghold during World War II, is still home to remnants of its war-torn past. Embark on an afternoon Bunker Archaeology tour, where you’ll begin to understand WWII from the enemy’s point of view. Led by a local guide, tour the remains of defensive army camps, wander inside bunkers and get up close and personal with the Atlantic Wall, an extensive coastal defense system and series of fortifications built by Nazi Germany that lies along the coast of numerous European countries.

Choice of Médoc Châteaux route with exclusive wine tasting -or- Bunker Archaeology tour

Day 3: Cadillac

Satisfy your sweet tooth in elegant Cadillac, a town known for its production of sweet dessert wines and perfectly situated in the center of an acclaimed international wine region. The town, which still holds on to its medieval structure, is home to a plethora of impressive wine estates, beautiful chateaus and trails perfect for enjoying the French countryside. We’ll treat you to an exclusive artisanal wine-pairing lunch at Château Royal de Cazeneuve prior to an appropriate photo stop at Château d’Yquem.

Choice of Sauternes vineyard with exclusive artisanal wine-tasting -or- Château de Cazeneuve

Day 4: Blaye, Bourg sur Gironde, Libourne

Spend your morning on a scenic drive along the Route de La Corniche Fleurie. Marvel at the spectacular homes etched into cliffs, sprawling gardens, Blaye Fortress and Lansac’s windmills along your way. Or, choose to experience it by bike, where you’ll cycle towards quiet roads, riverside paths and charming villages.

Featured Excursions: Scenic drive along the Route de la Corniche Fleurie with Blaye Fortress; "Let's Go" bike tour: Corniche Fleurie

Connoisseur Collection Excursion: Rendez-vous chez Rémy Martin. This excursion is only available on sailings that belong to the Connoisseur Collection program.

Day 5: Libourne (Saint-Émilion)

A full day in Libourne means you’ll have plenty of time to explore the majestic landscape of villages and vineyards. Nestled along the confluence of the Isle and Dordogne rivers, the quaint town is as pretty as a postcard. On the outskirts of Libourne, you’ll find neighboring Saint-Émilion. Discover the wine-making town by foot on a tour of its most picturesque sights, such as the magnificent Monolithic Church, all capped by a wine tasting at a beautiful château.

Featured Excursion: Saint-Émilion walking discovery tour with wine tasting

Day 6: Libourne, Bordeaux, Cité du Vin

The French insist that the key to their superb wines is the soil in which they’re grown, the terroir. That same terroir also makes for extraordinary produce—the foundation for the country’s acclaimed cuisine—as you’ll discover today at a local farmers’ market.

Featured Excursion: Libourne “Village Day” with farmers’ market

Connoisseur Collection Excursions: Cocktail party - Island of Patiras; Chocolate and Wine tasting onboard These excursions are only available on sailings that belong to the Connoisseur Collection program.

Day 7: Bordeaux (Quai des Chatrons)

There’s so much to discover with a full day in Bordeaux’s port of Quai des Chatrons. The architecture is impressive, the wine is exquisite and the shopping is to die for. Explore La Cité du Vin, a one-of-a-kind cultural center and museum that brings the heritage of wine to life through interactive exhibits, shows, academic seminars and more. Do as the locals do and uncover Bordeaux’s unique heritage on a walking tour or choose to traverse the city by bike. Celebrate the end to a spectacular trip with a farewell dinner onboard.
