The Seine is an ideal river for history and art lovers, as highlights include WWII sites and famous artists’ homes.
In 2014, Scenic Cruises is set to launch its newest vessel in a fleet of eight Scenic Cruise Space-Ships: the 126-guest Scenic Gem. The Gem was built specifically to sail the Seine, which it will cruise through northern France on the 11-day Gems of the Seine itinerary, sailing roundtrip from Paris.

Scenic Gem claims the title of being the only river cruiser that is able to transit the full span of the Seine, even passing under Pont de Brotonne, the oldest bridge of its kind in the world.

Features of the Gem will include a fine dining French restaurant and Table La Rive, a chef’s degustation experience reserved for guests of the Danube deck, featuring six courses and premium wines. In the Crystal Dining Room, cruisers will be able to choose from a wide range of menu choices, or enjoy light fare all day at the River Cafe. Room service is available to all guests 24 hours a day, and barbeques will also be offered on select days on the Sun Deck.

Highlights of the cruise include overnights in Paris, Rouen, and Honfleur, as well as Sceneic Enrich events that are exclusive to Scenic guests, such as a private classical concert at the 16th-century Chateau-de-Champlatreux in the northern suburbs of Paris.

Gems of the Seine sails between July and October of 2014, at prices starting from $5,420.
