After two unforgettable journeys in years past, The Globe and Mail invites you to join us on our third cruise being offered by Scenic, The Globe and Mail French River Cruise – Explore the changing food, wine and culture of southern France.  An elegant ride along the gentle Rhône and Saône rivers, the two week trip will take you to some of southern France’s most captivating locales.

The Globe and Mail has partnered with Scenic to create a one-of-a kind river cruise, that delivers the classic charms of the historic, beloved Southern France region, an insider’s look at how French foods and wine are evolving in the 21st century and unique access to award-winning journalists from The Globe.

Starting in Paris, enjoy your day taking in the architectural and cultural shifts that are reinvigorating one of the world’s great cities. From there, take in stunning surroundings from the deck of the Scenic Sapphire ship, where you will enjoy Scenic's 5-star accommodations, relaxation and exquisite onboard dining.

Be invigorated by immersing yourself in current events with The Globe’s award-winning journalists, editors and columnists – including our European-based team and food & wine experts.  They will provide insights into the stories behind the stories and their investigative process, and offer candid and unique perspectives on the most pressing issues in Europe and beyond.
