eWaterways are launching a host of cruises that depart from the UK in the summer of 2012 on board the Arion, a charming cruise liner with just 175 cabins. On the 4th August, the Wine Explorer themed cruise departs from Falmouth and will visit special ports of call in France, Spain, and Portugal. This cruise promises to please everyone, from the serious connoisseur to the wine enthusiast. Offering the opportunity for passengers to expand their knowledge of fine wines and learning about the differences in grape varieties and the wine making process guided by an on board wine expert. The experience begins with an excursion to explore Cornwall's beautiful countryside and pretty villages before cruising to the first port of call - Saint Nazaire, the gateway to the Loire Valley; from here the UNESCO World Heritage site area of Bordeaux will delight everyone before cruising to Vigo in Portugal to taste its Albarino wines and port. Heading southwards passing Gibraltar, the Mediterranean coast of Spain awaits and its wines of Cataluna. What can be better than relaxing in the sunshine aboard a small, luxury ship whilst stopping and sampling regional wines from their origins... it's just about the best way to cruise!

eWaterways offers this 12 day 'Wine Explorer' cruise from just $1620 per person. This vessel offers a yacht like ambience and carries just 375 passengers to give you a memorable cruising experience. All meals are included, with daytime and evening entertainment presented everyday. Each vessel is comfortably furnished, with on board plunge pool, sunbathing area, bar, dining room and well appointed cabins.

The cruises are on a full board basis and depart throughout the year. Price shown does not include flights. For more information and latest availability visit eWaterways at www.ewaterways.com.au or call freephone 1300 503 669.
