With Emerald Waterways, we give you an all-encompassing sensory experience of France with our EmeraldDISCOVERY included excursions - those tastes, sights, smells, and sounds you'll only come to know when you step into the French way of life. And when you do, make sure you know the correct etiquette of la bise as you will surely be welcomed with one.

Provence has a rich wine making heritage but is also home to some of the world’s favourite dishes and most respected chefs. Finalist of Top Chef, Fabien Morreale will be on board to give you a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience, celebrating authentic Provençal cuisine.
