Destinations

France Overview

We could say that a cruise holiday to France will take you to the land of berets, strings of onions and garlic, but the promise of beautiful countryside, fine wines, stunning architecture, world-class galleries and museums and delicious food would probably be more tempting.

The whole of France oozes a refined chic that you won't find anywhere else. This is especially true of romantic Paris with its breath-taking architecture, scenic river and iconic buildings.

There are few European countries that can offer so much; rolling countryside, vineyards, stunning beaches, mountains and picture-perfect villages with cobbled streets, stone buildings and people playing boules in shady squares.

But of course, a 2014 cruise to France isn't just about the country's history and natural beauty. It's also about a gastronomic adventure with some of the best restaurants in the world and of course delicious wines and champagne.

And as for the more adventurous, there's plenty of opportunity for cycling, skiing and hiking. But of course, you will need to replace all your spent energy with some tasty, buttery croissants.

All of that coupled with the warm welcome you'll receive from the locals will make your cruise holiday to France an unforgettable adventure.

Service rating : Having been with other cruise lines, FO ships are looking rather tired.

Service rating : Our third cruise with Fred Olsen, all of short duration. Whilst liking the larger cruise ships, I am always pleasantly surprised at the relaxing time we have onboard the smaller and more traditional Fred Olsen ships. We certainly intend to use them again.
Product : Only a short cruise but we had the benefit of an upgrade and this proved to be an excellent cruise, one of our best ever. The staff were all great.
