Cruises to France

Known for its gastronomy, art and joire de vivre, France maintains its status as one of the world's cultural leaders. The scenery that inspired artists such as Claude Monet and Paul Cezanne is still evident today in the country's scenery, ranging from rolling vineyards to sweeping mountain ranges. While France's major cities like Paris and Marseille are must-sees, consider venturing to Cannes, home of the famed film festival or Dinan, a medieval Harry Potter-esque village in Brittany.
