Ship Deck
The Seine is regarded as one of the great historic rivers in Europe, flowing 485 miles from Burgundy in a north-westerly direction to Normandy via Paris. It therefore provides an ideal link between the French capital and the sea. Five tributaries feed into the Seine including the Marne, Aube, Loing, Yonne, and Oise, which are in addition to a series of canals which link the Seine to the Loire, Rhine and Rhone rivers.

The first thing you will notice as you approach Rouen is the Cathedral of Notre Dame, towering high above the city, its 490 foot cast-iron spire the tallest in France. Get lost in the old town where half-timbered houses line a labyrinth of lanes, and stop for a moment at the Rehabilitation Cross, marking the spot where in 1431 Joan of Arc was consigned to the flames.
