The Travel Corporation (TTC) and Uniworld Boutique River Cruises hosted this year’s FAM in August exclusively for Worldchoice agencies, embarking on an 8-day river cruise through Bordeaux and the surrounding regions aboard the newly elevated Super Ship, S.S Bon Voyage.

 

The itinerary for Brilliant Bordeaux sailed on the Garonne, Dordogne & Gironde Estuary. It included yoga in the historic Blaye Fortress, oyster tasting at the exclusive Fort Medoc, visits to Libourne and Saint Emilion towns including an authentic farmers market and an underground 12th century Monolithic Church. Lisa and Shane managed a 4am start to see a breath-taking sunrise hike up the Dune of Pilat, the highest dune in Europe. A scenic bike ride through Pauillac’s vineyards and wine tasting at world-renowned Chateaux made for truly an unforgettable week.

 

On board, guests were treated to a memorable Can-Can performance in the main lounge, live traditional local singers and even a ‘Paint and Wine’ workshop, in which Shane Coburn created a landscape masterpiece. Adam felt that Sharon was more interested in the ‘Wine’! As expected, there was 5-star farm-to-table food served daily including French-inspired delicacies: caviar, escargot, lobster, veal, and filet mignon.
