Brilliant Bordeaux

7-Night Cruise Bordeaux to Bordeaux

Brilliant Bordeaux

2023 & 2024 Departure Dates & Pricing

Bordeaux to Bordeaux - 7 nights/ 8 days

Ship - Bon Voyage

Detailed Itinerary:

Note: The itineraries presented are subject to modification due to water levels, closures because of public holidays or other uncontrollable factors. Every effort will be made to operate programs as planned, but changes may still be necessary throughout the cruise. This day-to-day schedule is subject to change. Your final day-to-day schedule will be provided onboard on the first day of your cruise.

Day 1: Bordeaux (Embarkation)

Arrive at Bordeaux-Mérignac International Airport. If your cruise package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a cruise representative and transferred to the ship.

Day 2: Cadillac

The French phrase “la douceur de vivre” is an accurate description for your time in Cadillac, known for its deliciously flavored dessert wines. Visit Château Royal de Cazeneuve, site of Henry IV’s and Queen Margot’s tempestuous love. Meet the owner around a glass of Sauternes in the reception hall.

In the evening, a special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

Choose between a Private owner's tour of Royal Chateau with Sauternes toast -OR- The colorful life of Toulouse Lautrec at Chateau de Malrome

Note: Sailing this stretch of the Garonne depends on the tides. If it is not possible to sail to Cadillac, you will be transferred to your destination via motorcoach.

Day 3: Cussac Fort Médoc

The legendary Médoc region abounds with prestigious wine châteaux in a dizzying array of architectural styles, as well as miles of grapevines stretching to infinity. Take a scenic drive through the storied Médoc wine route, followed by a wine tasting at a beautiful wine estate.

Featured Excursion: Fresh Médoc oysters tasting

Choose between "Let's Go" bike in the Médoc vineyards -OR- Medoc Chateaux route with private wine tasting

Day 4: Blaye, Bourg Sur Gironde

The Route de la Corniche Fleurie…could this be the most beautiful road you’ve ever traveled? Find out today on the drive to Blaye Fortress, passing through one impossibly picturesque hamlet after another. Once you arrive, you’ll discover the wonders of this historic fortress, a UNESCO-designated citadel that once protected Bordeaux from attacks by sea.

Choose between Intimate Experience with Local Wine and Art Connoisseurs -OR- Panoramas of Route de la Corniche Fleurie with Blaye Fortress

Day 5: Libourne  (Saint-Émilion)

With Libourne as your base, travel to nearby breathtaking Saint-Émilion and immerse yourself more deeply in the region’s history and wine culture. The medieval town of Saint-Émilion is an ideal place to linger. Wander its cobblestone lanes lined with wine shops and bakeries, and stop to admire the amazing rock-hewn church that extends beneath the city’s streets. Another treasure awaiting you underground? A wine tasting in the cellars of a Grand Cru estate.

Featured Excursion: Saint-Émilion walking tour with wine tasting

Note: Today's lunch will be on your own; ask your Cruise Manager for recommendations on the best nearby restaurants

Day 6: Libourne, Bordeaux

France’s rich agricultural tradition is the heart and soul of the region’s exquisite cuisine—and what better way to get a taste for the freshest vegetables, cheeses, breads and fruits than with a visit to Libourne’s lively farmers’ market?

Featured Excursion: Libourne “Village Day” with farmer's market; Nights Out: After Hours at the Bassins des Lumières

Day 7: Bordeaux

Discover Bordeaux’s many charms today, either on foot with a local expert or on two wheels—the locals’ preferred way to navigate the city’s charming backstreets. You have a wonderful selection of active opportunities to see this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Choose between “Do as the Locals Do” Bordeaux walking tour -OR- ”Let’s Go” biking in Bordeaux backstreets

In the evening, a special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

Day 8: Bordeaux (Disembarkation)

Disembark the ship. If your cruise package includes a group departure transfer or if you have purchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Bordeaux-Mérignac International Airport for your flight home.
