25 December: PARIS and the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district

The morning will be spent cruising on the Seine River. This cruise will bring you side by side with the most beautiful sites and monuments in the French capital, such as the Île Saint-Louis, Île de la Cité (where Notre Dame sits majestically despite the damage), the Louvre, Tuileries Garden, Pont Alexandre III, and, of course, the Eiffel Tower and its Trocadéro Gardens. Our ship will dock at the Quai de Grenelle.

Set out this afternoon on a panoramic tour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, one of the cradles of Parisian culture. We'll travel along the famous Triumphal Way—the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysées, and the Place de la Concorde—before arriving in Saint- Germain-des-Prés. This quaint neighborhood has a village-like feel to it. Some sites we'll see include the oldest church in the city, dating back to 543, and the Café de Flore, celebrated for its high-profile artistic history while remaining a popular spot for celebrities. A coffee here in the past could mean crossing paths with Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Boris Vian, Guillaume Apollinaire, Albert Camus, or Pablo Picasso.

Take advantage of some free time this afternoon to stroll through one of the Parisian Christmas markets and revel in the holiday spirit! We'll return on board the ship. Tonight is our festive gala evening.
