Newly built, the 125 metre vessel debuts in March 2017, with exciting advances in design and facilities. Handcrafted furniture, rich fabrics, gilded interiors, curated antiques and art sourced from the best auction houses decorate the Salon de Beaux-Arts lounge and other public areas. Modern technology is evident throughout, including a cinema and surrounding pool with hydraulic floor, which can turn into a dance floor at night.

As the largest river cruise ship on the Seine, guests can expect an experience worthy of such grandeur. Itineraries visit Monet’s divine house and garden in Giverny, the Normandy beaches and Conflans-Sainte-Honorine where Vincent Van Gogh spent his last few months.
