Cruising Europe: Saint-Emilion

Western European ports of call on the Crystal Serenity: Saint-Emilion, France


A cruise is a wonderful thing: it allows you to unpack once, yet visit much more than just one place. Itineraries vary, but Crystal Cruises opts for some very interesting ports of call, including Bordeaux. We spend two lovely days in this rich wine region of France, where we’re exploring this Travel Tuesday the ancient town of St. Emilion.

Next week, travel with us on AmaWaterways’ AmaCerto along the Danube. So pack your bag – you’ll only have to unpack it once.
