French Country Waterways

Luxury Cruises: So, you're not much for mega cruise ships packed with thousands of other passengers, theatrical venues, even ice-skating rinks. You don't care for touristy ports of call where you're turned loose en masse. What ever happened to personalized travel? Why is it that everything that's bigger is better? There's no reason to feel bad about not wanting to spend your precious vacation with a horde of other people-who you may or may not find to be suitable travel companions. French Country Waterways caters to discriminating travelers like you who want to savor the experience of traveling the French countryside in style and luxury instead of hurrying through crowded souvenir bazaars to make it back to a super ton cruise ship on time. Imagine traveling the French château country through canals dating from 1604. Or touring Alsace-Lorraine, two historic regions linked by one of France's most scenic waterways, which rises over the summit of the Vosges Mountains. Instead of Se?or Frogs or Epcot Center, how about timbered houses, cobblestone streets, and pelicans nesting on chimney tops? Instead of cantinas serving questionable fare, enjoy foie gras, tart flambé, and kugelhopf (a type of rich sweet bread) in hospitable wine taverns and brasseries.

Enjoy a six-night deluxe canal cruise through Champagne, one of the most romantic spots in France. During your cruise sit back and enjoy the breathtaking scenery while French Country Waterways' chefs skillfully blend classic cooking techniques with modern trends, resulting in fresh, creative dishes equal to any from the best kitchens in France-from Continental breakfasts and buffet lunches, to four-course candlelit dinners. Fresh breads and buttery croissants are brought on board each morning, still warm from a village bakery. Local farmers' markets along your route supply ingredients for fresh salads and savory tarts. Creamy, farm-produced cheeses, prime meats and fish, and garden-fresh fruits and vegetables provide inspiration for a medley of tempting menus. Spring break mayhem or sandstone villages, rolling meadows, and mountain forests. The choice is simple. Accommodations are in air-conditioned double or twin staterooms or suites, all with private baths. Prices for 2006 range from $3,095 to $4,995 per person, based on double occupancy. Charter rates available upon request. For information, reservations, or to request our 36-page brochure, please call us at 800-222-1236 or 781-934-2454 (in Massachusetts), email admin@fcwl.com or visit online at www.fcwl.com/Cruises.
