Does the ship have Wifi?

Yes, there will be WiFi onboard the ship, which is also already included in your cruise fare! Being close to shore, the connection is quite good at river cruises but internet on board can never be as reliable as on land. There will always be some level of unreliability, especially the further out to sea you sail.

Our connection relies on a cellular or satellite terminal—the best possible solution for river cruising. Due to the nature of data bandwidth and latency, as well as potential interruptions in satellite signals based on terrain and weather, you may experience slower online connections than you are accustomed to at home. That’s why we recommend to download your content such as movies, series or software updates before the cruise, so there is enough data for everyone to use the WiFi.

What is not included?

  • International Flights
  • Airport transfers
  • Any additional food or beverages obtained outside of the package specifications
  • Purchases of drinks, souvenirs, gifts and other personal items on board or ashore
  • Personal services such as spa, laundry and telecommunication charges
  • Baggage, travel cancellation and personal insurance

How can I book shore excursions?

Once we finished the planning of our shore excursions, all booked guests will receive an email with a link for a separate Vegan Travel website where you can book our excursions. You will also be able to find the link here at the FAQs. It is highly recommended to book shore excursions prior to the cruise. 

Which Airport do I fly to? 

You can either book flight to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CGD) or Paris Orly Airport (ORY). 
For the best flight options we recommend to book flights via www.kayak.com 

Where exactly will the ship be on embarkation day? 

The exact coordinates will be announced to us only a few weeks before the cruise starts. You will get the information with your travel documents. What we can say by now is that you can assume the ship to be centrally located in Paris. 

DO I HAVE TO BE VACCINATED (COVID)? 

Vegan Travel recommends all passengers to be vaccinated.

 

You can find the requirements from the French Government here: https://vtr.onl/FranceTravelRestrictions

Will you offer a pre- or post-cruise extension? 

Yes! We are currently working on a pre- or post-cruise option.
