  12:00am Cruising River Seine, At Sea, France
Ship Deck
The Seine is regarded as one of the great historic rivers in Europe, flowing 485 miles from Burgundy in a north-westerly direction to Normandy via Paris. It therefore provides an ideal link between the French capital and the sea. Five tributaries feed into the Seine including the Marne, Aube, Loing, Yonne, and Oise, which are in addition to a series of canals which link the Seine to the Loire, Rhine and Rhone rivers.

  12:00am Rouen, France
The first thing you will notice as you approach Rouen is the Cathedral of Notre Dame, towering high above the city, its 490 foot cast-iron spire the tallest in France. Get lost in the old town where half-timbered houses line a labyrinth of lanes, and stop for a moment at the Rehabilitation Cross, marking the spot where in 1431 Joan of Arc was consigned to the flames.

  12:00am L'Orient, France
When merchants trading with India set up warehouses here in the 17th century, the location became known as L'Orient. Subsequently it developed as a shipbuilding centre. In the Second World War it was a U-Boat base and three massive reinforced-concrete structures were built to keep the submarines under cover: the base is now a museum. Close to L'Orient harbour is the Cite de la Voile (City of Sailing) a modern interactive exhibition and museum with 11 giant screens and audio-surround to recreate the sights and sounds of sailing. Nearby is the marine survey ship Thalassa, which is now a museum of oceanography. Across the bay in Port Louis (there are regular ferries) are the National Maritime Museum and French East Indies Company Museum. They are both housed in magnificent 16th century military buildings.
