25-1: Quilt Exploration Paris to Normandy River Cruise

 

Quilt Seminars at Sea and I have created a new “Quilt Explorations” cruise, this time we are traveling on a River Cruise!   Starting in Paris and sailing on the river Seine, just a few of our stops include Normandy, Monet’s garden and the charming port town of Honfleur.  History, art, timeless landscapes, stunning architecture and good food fill this itinerary.  

There is already lots of excitement about this cruise, I’m looking forward to sharing it with you!  

 

Cruise Itinerary

You're about to discover that river crusing is one of the most convenient way to see the world. River cruising is more intimate, has a personal touch and offers every-changing scenery. The proximity to shore will also allow you to immerse yourself in the culture and see more during your trip!

Paris always sizzles while Normandy beckons with its stunning coastline, incredible food and artistic beauty.  Blend a passion for the good life with culture, art, architecture and timeless landscapes and you have Northern France. 

Itinerary map

 

Begin your trip with an optional 2 night pre-cruise stay in Paris!

22-3: Baltic Vikings and Czars Quilting Cruise

 

Quilting and "sewcializing"

Relax in our floating hotel...why not try the spa? Sit in on exciting port lectures and find out more about the area we're visiting or plan a few excursions. Or, after an exciting day of exploring, visit with your fellow quilters at our evening "Sew"cials and open sewing sessions. You will also have the opportunity to perfect your quilting skills by taking stunning and fun classes taught by award-winning instructor Karen Combs.

Whatever you decide to do, this will be a "trip of a lifetime!" For all of you that have sailed with us before – welcome back! For those of you that are new to the fabulous experience of quilting at sea, we look forward to getting to know you and creating lasting memories. Bring a friend, your spouse or your family. Non-quilters will get a discounted rate and are always welcome to join us! They have many activities to pursue while you are in class.

 

A Fabulous Itinerary!

We will begin our cruise in Copenhagen, Denmark, famous for the Little Mermaid that greets you in the harbor.

Our first port of call is Talinn, Estonia where you can wander the cobblestone alleys beneath turrets and red tiled roofs in Medieval old town. We will then head to St. Petersburg, Russia where an overnight stay allows you 2 full days to explore this fascinating city, home of the Hermitage Museum and Cathedrals galore!

From St. Petersburg we will travel to Helsinki, Finland, where you can explore the Rock Church and the stylish and sophisticated shops of Esplanade Street.

Then to Stockholm, Sweden, one of Europe's most beautiful capital cities. On to Germany where we will make port in Warnemunde, the gateway to Berlin. See the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie.

Next, we stop in Kiel. A university town, naval base, and Germany's largest passenger port, Kiel offers the perfect blend of urban charm, culture and history. Kiel also serves as your gateway for Hamburg, a beautiful port city on the Elbe River.

Spend a delightful day exploring St. Michael's baroque church, the St. Pauli District, and the gardens and cafés around Alster Lake.

Our final port of call is back to Copenhagen, Denmark. At its center is Tivoli, whose gardens, lakes and fountains are said to have inspired Walt Disney.
