Bordeaux - Overnights and Hotel Question

Recommended Posts

Just ret from 1st river cruise with AMA (pain & Provence) which was fantastic. Notice that the Bordeaux cruise there are several overnights (great!) Other than free time does AMA plan to offer something special @ ea overnight?

 

What hotels are used in Paris, CDG and Amboise?

Hi CaroleLee,

 

Very thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your recent Spain and Provence wine cruise with us! On the Taste of Bordeaux itinerary, we are so excited that we have several overnights in port and guests can enjoy special onboard entertainment after dinner each night. This entertainment ranges from dancing to the best of the decades and contemporary music from our onboard musician, special performances from local talent or even a competitive evening of French trivia led by your Cruise Manager. Alternatively, guests can enjoy free time exploring each city or town’s nightlife before the All Aboard in the morning!

 

If enjoying a pre- (2-nights Paris) or post-cruise extension (2-nights Loire Valley, 1-night Paris) with us, we stay at the Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador, the Novotel Amboise in the Loire Valley and at the Pullman Paris Roissy CDG Airport for our final evening.

Just off the Bordeaux cruise, the cool thing about having the overnights is you can also sample the nightlife in port! I adored the tiny village of Bourg, where we spent one night. There's a bar in town that has wines by the glass from not just all over the region but also all over the world (even a zinfandel from California), and was a blast. And one night in Bordeaux after dinner, we wandered on down to the fabulous waterfront. It seemed like everyone in Bordeaux was hanging out that night, and was such a great scene.

 

Probably my favorite night on the cruise alas was the last night when after dinner (and at sunset or just after) the captain pulled away and we took a pleasure cruise around the river, with the gorgeous lights and scenery of Bordeaux being just breathtaking.
