Broadway on the Rhône River
Currently Underway

Playbill Travel’s first-ever river cruise, a recent addition to the popular Broadway on the High Seas series. Enjoy a week of Broadway, Burgundy, and Brie down the Rhône River from May 21-May 28, 2017 on Uniworld's S.S. Catherine. Many of our past passengers have requested a river cruise, and we are never one to disappoint!

Beginning in Avignon and making stops in Tarascon-sur-Rhône, Viviers, Tournon/Tain L’Hermitage, Lyon, and Mâcon, the magnificent S.S. Catherine will take you on a tour of some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. This cruise will have a special emphasis on the foods and wines of the Rhône region—it’s quite the treat for lovers of French cuisine.

In addition to our Broadway performers, there will be another (culinary) star onboard for this voyage! World renowned sommelier Jean-Luc le Dû will be leading passengers through the delicacies of Burgundy and Provence as the S.S. Catherine sails leisurely northward. Jean-Luc has planned three regionally-themed dinners, including four wines each to indulge and delight, which include the Northern Rhône, Beaujolais/Mâconnais, and Burgundy.

There will also be cocktail hours on deck and wine pairings with local chocolate and cheese. Jean-Luc knows a number of award winning chocolate suppliers and individual Maître de Fromage. He also has a series of special offshore excursions planned.
