One new cruise is eight days on the romantic Rhone and Saone rivers from Charlon-sur-Saone to Arles.

The journey is on board the luxurious scenic 'space-ship', Scenic Emerald, the newest ship on the waterways of France and the only one with full size outdoor balcony suites.

The cruise visits Macon, where guests have the option to visit the village of Cluny and the great Benedictine Abbey.

They will also visit Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France and home to majestic embankments, bridges and monuments.

Guests will also visit the 2000-year-old Roman city of Vienne and experience everyday French life with a family home-hosted meal in Tournon.

This eight day cruise is a shorter version of the flagship 12 night France river cruise and is the perfect option for guests who have limited time or are travelling around Europe and wish to add a short cruise to their trip.

Prices on the eight day enchanting Rhone river cruise start from $4,855pp twin share.
