Highlights of this cruise:

Bordeaux is a port city in the south west of France. It is the capital city of the Aquitaine region and is famous for its many varieties of wine, which are considered among the best in the world.

Bordeaux is a historical city with many tourist attractions. The city itself boasts elegant neoclassical architecture, wide avenues, and attractive public squares and parks. The centre of town lies between Place Gambetta and the Garonne River. There are many fascinating museums and art galleries, excellent shopping and beautiful gardens to enjoy.

Bordeaux also offers a great selection of cafes and restaurants in the Place de la Victoire, the Place du Parlement or the Rue de Parlement Sainte Catherine. Sample some of Bordeaux’s lively nightlife by checking out the city’s late night dance venues on the Quai de Paludate.

Libourne is a commune in the Gironde department in Aquitaine in southwestern France. It is a sub-prefecture of the department and is located at the confluence of the Islae and Dordogne rivers. It is the wine-making capital of northern Gironde and lies near Saint-Émilion and Pomerol.

Attractions in Libourne include the Gothic church, restored in the 19th century, which has a stone spire 232 ft (71 m) high. On the quay there is a machicolated clock-tower which is a survival of the defensive walls of the 14th century; and the town-house, containing a small museum and a library, is a quaint relic of the 16th century. It is located by the main square, the Place Abel Surchamp, which hosts one of the largest fresh food markets in the region every weekend. There is a statue of Élie, duc Decazes, who was born in the neighborhood.

Cadillac is a commune in the Gironde department in Aquitaine in south-western France. It is directly across the Garonne river from Sauternes, and is known for producing similarly sweet dessert wines under the Cadillac AOC designation.

A main attraction in Cadillac is the Chateau de Cadillac. It is a prime example of early 17th century architecture; all that remains is the main building with its two wings at right angles, the courtyard and the garden. Inside, there are monumental marble fireplaces with carved figures, painted ceilings from the 17th century and tapestries. This decoration gives a good idea of the splendor of the receptions given in honor of the visits of Henri IV, Louis XIII and Louis XIV.
