I’m so excited for my first trip to Normandy and the chance to sample its bounty, delights like camembert, apple brandy, and fresh oysters. I’ll be exploring the region on a special Seine River cruise aboard Uniworld’s 128-passenger Joie de Vivre, August 6-13, 2017—and you’re welcome to come along. It features exclusive activities such a lesson in the art of French cheesemaking; tastings at a calvados distillery; and a gourmet lunch at Michelin-starred La Ferme Saint-Simeon. Of course, I’m also excited to experience Normandy’s historic sites, from the D-Day beaches to scenic countryside that inspired the Impressionists. Click through this slideshow to appreciate how picture-perfect this cruise itinerary really is. I can’t wait to set sail, and I hope you’ll join me.
