DAY 1 PARIS – DIJON

After meeting in Paris we’ll move on to Dijon, where our crew will welcome us as we step aboard our private barge. This afternoon, we’ll enjoy cocktails and a delicious included dinner. What better way to get to know the group and start the cruise with a bang? (D)
 
Accommodation: MS Jeanine 
 

DAY 2 DIJON – PETIT OUGES

This morning we’ll return to dry land to enjoy a leisurely drive through the beautiful French countryside. Here, row upon row of vines and honey-stone villages will have us thinking we’ve slipped inside a romantic landscape painting! This afternoon, we’ll climb back aboard the barge and depart for Petit Ouges. On this tour, we’ll savour the journey just as much as our arrival at each destination – especially with the green and pleasant landscape of the Saône Valley rippling around us. As we go, we’ll enjoy both lunch and dinner on board. (B,L,D) 
 
Accommodation: MS Jeanine 
 

DAY 3 PETIT OUGES – SAINT-JEAN-DE-LOSNE

Today, you’re free to simply sit back in our luxurious surrounds and take in some of France’s most sublime wine country – enjoying a tasty lunch as we drift down the canal. We’ll arrive in Saint-Jean-de-Losne late this afternoon, where there will be just enough time to take a walk or ride along the bike path before we meet for dinner at a local restaurant. (B,L,D) 
 
Accommodation: MS Jeanine 
 

DAY 4 SAINT-JEAN-DE-LOSNE – DOLE

After breakfast, we’ll leave our barge moored alongside the riverboats lining the banks of Saint-Jean-de-Losne and stretch our legs with a walk around the town’s pretty streets. We’ll soon discover the port’s boating heritage and characteristic Saône Valley buildings. Back on board the barge we’ll cruise to Dole, this afternoon’s final destination, where we’ll share a meal together in town. (B,L,D)
 
Accommodation: MS Jeanine 
 

DAY 5 DOLE – RANCHOT

This morning we’ll take some time to explore Dole and its charming town centre. After settling down to lunch back on board the barge, we’ll set off for Ranchot – but you don’t have to cruise the whole way if you don’t want to. With bicycles on board for our exclusive use, you could swap the decks for dry land and ride the bike path alongside the canal. When you’ve worked up an appetite, we’ll enjoy another included dinner together on board. (B,L,D) 
 
Accommodation: MS Jeanine 
 

DAY 6 RANCHOT – BESANÇON

Today we’ll wake up to a leisurely morning as we cruise further along the Canal de Bourgogne. After lunch, we’ll board a coach and depart for Besançon, where you’ll have plenty of time to  explore the area at your own pace. Later, we’ll tour the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Saltworks before celebrating our final evening on the water with a gala evening dinner. (B,L,D) 
 
Accommodation: MS Jeanine 
 

DAY 7 BESANÇON – PALACE OF FONTAINEBLEAU – PARIS

After a hearty breakfast, we’ll move on to the elegant Palace of Fontainebleau – one of the largest French royal châteaux. Then, we’ll bid farewell to our barge and reminisce on our tour on one last drive to Paris. (B)
