CroisiEurope’s Burgundy sailing marks Beaujolais Nouveau wine release

The wine-themed cruise takes in the city of Beaune, one of the key wine centres in France
The annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau wine can be celebrated by CroisiEurope passengers as part of a five-day wine themed sailing in Burgundy.

Departing November 13, Rhone Princess will sail roundtrip from Lyon calling Chalon-Sur-Saône, Mâcon and Belleville.


The itinerary includes visits to the city of Beaune, one of the key wine centres in France, the partial ruins of the Cluny Abbey, the Beaujolais Route and Le Parc du Hameau Duboeuf - a theme park dedicated to vineyards.

The highlight is a visit to medieval Beaujeau where passengers can discover the 12 appellations of Beaujolais, take a soiree in the town centre with cabaret entertainment and food, and a torch-lit stroll to mark Beaujolais Nouveau Day including a fireworks display.


Bookings have opened for the same itinerary running November 12, 2023.
