This cruise vacation has it all—historic sites, charming towns, world-class wine and cuisine and more!

You will feel at home from the moment you board this stylish cruise ship, where contemporary design meets the highest levels of comfort, inviting you to relax and enjoy the exceptional ambiance on board.

The ship has been a highlight of the Amadeus fleet since it was built in 2009, and is the new jewel on the French waterways after its complete renovation in 2019. Your accommodation on board is both elegant and comfortable. All 8 suites and the majority of the 68 cabins have French balconies, as well as modern bathrooms.

 

Amadeus Diamond Piano bar

 

The ship offers countless options for your leisure time, from golf on the Sun Deck, to a fitness studio, to massage facilities, ensuring that every taste is catered for. Your culinary needs will be taken care of by the Panorama Restaurant, where you can dine in style, while admiring the fascinating passing river landscapes.

On each cruise our master chef and his team take their inspiration for creative new ideas from the culture and produce of each country we pass through, thus taking everyone’s palate on voyage of discovery as well.

 

Amadeus Diamond Club

 

AMADEUS Club
The AMADEUS Club is the perfect place in which to share the pleasures of the day with a glass of wine in the evening and relax to the gentle sounds of jazz or classics. You can also easily send holiday greetings to all your loved ones at home from our Internet stations in the AMADEUS Club.

Wellness
Start a feel-good programme of your very own: You could best do this by booking a relaxing massage in our Vital club or arranging for a beauty treatment with our onboard hairdresser. An excellent way to make an active start to the day would be to join the early morning exercise group on the sun deck or visit our well-equipped fitness room, which is open for you round the clock.

Throughout Normandy, artisans—cheesemakers, metalworkers, potters, lacemakers, bell forgers, and cidermakers—still run thriving trades.

After all, Camembert, Livarot, and Pont l’E´ve^que cheeses all come from Normandy, as do caramels au beurre d’Isigny made with creamy Norman salted butter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tips You Need To Know Before Your Cruise
To help prepare you for your vacation, we will email a booklet prior to your cruise, which contains helpful tips and advice in preparing for your vacation. We encourage you to read this information carefully and to bring it with you as a reference during your travels. While traveling, please keep in mind that patience, understanding and the flexibility to adapt to a changing environment will enhance your vacation experience. Despite careful planning, unavoidable circumstances may require last minute changes to your itinerary. However, we have discovered that these deviations often reveal unexpected discoveries.

Entry Documents
A valid passport is required for this trip; your passport must be valid for at least six months after your return. Entry visas are not required for citizens of the EU, USA and Canada. Citizens of all other countries should check with their home country’s French consulate or embassy to determine if visas are needed. It is your responsibility to ensure your passport is valid and to secure any required visas. In the event that you lose your passport while traveling, we recommend you photocopy the first pages of your passport, airline tickets, driver’s license and/or birth certificate to simplify and expedite the process of replacing lost documents. Keep the originals separate from the copies. This will make replacement easier if you lose them en route. It is also useful to carry spare passport photos. You may wish to scan your passport, airline tickets and credit card numbers and email them to yourself as attachments, so you may download copies to assist in obtaining replacements.

What To Wear
Comfortable, casual clothing is appropriate both onshore and on board. Jackets, ties and gowns are never required. Shorts and t-shirts are generally fine for daytime wear and jeans or dressier shorts and nice shirts are fine for evenings, however you may wish to bring something a bit dressier for one or two dinners. You will find a significant amount of walking over uneven terrain during your time ashore. We recommend comfortable walking shoes with good ankle support, as well as head covering to protect from the sun. At some sites, you may also be required to have knees and shoulders covered. Don’t forget to pack a waterproof jacket (preferably hooded) for unpredictable rain and cooler temperatures.

Special Diets
Please advise us at least 30 days prior to departure if you have any special dietary requirements. We will make every effort possible to accommodate your requests, however, please note that local conditions and seasonality can restrict our ability on occasions.

Settling Your Bill Onboard
The day before your cruise ends you will be given an invoice for any onboard charges you may have made. Please check the invoice to make sure all items are accounted for before payment/closing of the account. All onboard charges will be in Euros. Payment is accepted in cash (Euros) or by credit card. Your bank/credit card company will convert this into your card currency at their own exchange rate. Some bank/credit cards may charge a separate fee, as well.

 

Seine gay cruise

 

Who travels with Brand g?
All of our vacations are created for gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT) travelers, along with straight allies, who enjoy innovative escorted vacations to international spots. None of our current trips are designed for participants under the age of 21.

 

What can I expect on Brand g travel program?
All of Brand g Vacations will have at least two trip escorts. Depending on the size and location of the program, we will also include signature Brand g entertainment, including cabaret artists, DJs and comedians. The true stars of any Brand g travel program are the travelers themselves. Whether you’re traveling with a partner or interested in making new friends, our trips provide excellent opportunities to explore the world with others that share similar values.

 

France gay cruise - Le Havre

 

Do you offer a single supplement or a roommate sharing program?
We do offer a single supplement on all of our travel programs; however, it may vary depending on the destination. Our goal with roommate matching is to help facilitate an introduction with other solo travelers prior to your vacation to see if there is compatibility to share a room.

 

I am traveling by myself; will I be the only single traveler?
Not at all, depending on the trip, anywhere between 15 to 40% of the group will be solo travelers!

 

Gay river cruise - pastries

 

Should I buy travel insurance?
Brand g Vacations strongly recommends the purchase of travel insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances that might prevent you from traveling with us or unfortunate circumstances during your trip. Travel Insurance is an excellent way of protecting your vacation investment. We recommend Travelex Travel Insurance, however you are welcome to shop and compare plans from other companies to find the best fit for you.

 

Is it hard meeting others?
Even the shyest among us end up in group hugs by the end of our cruises. The intimate size (generally 60-150 passengers) provides an opportunity for people to get to know each other in a way not at all possible on large ocean cruises. Countless guests have commented that they aren’t outgoing, and did not anticipate meeting anyone on their cruises, yet made extraordinary new friends – and, in some cases, partners – onboard.

 

France Normandy gay cruise

 

What does all-inclusive vacation mean?
All-inclusive can never mean every single thing; but at Brand g, we come as close as possible. Our trips almost inevitably include pre-cruise hotel stay, all transfers, unlimited wine and beer at lunch and dinner onboard, guided walking tours in every port, etc. When we say “inclusive”, we mean it! The specifics for this vacation are listed above.

 

Will I be the youngest onboard?
Mainstream river cruises sometimes have the perception that all the guests are well past retirement age. Brand g cruises, on the other hand, host a wide range of ages, from 20’s-80’s. The average age is mid-50’s, but on any given cruise there are a number of much younger and older guests. Brand g’s entertainment offerings onboard – from shows to parties – make our cruises, in the words of countless cruise staff, “the most fun group we’ve ever had on this ship”.
