Ports of call will include some of Western Europe’s most iconic and enchanting cities that have been backdrops to famous literary works, including St. Malo (All the LIght You Cannot See), Paris (A Moveable Feast), and Guernsey (Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society).
“Books and stories are one of the age-old ways we share experiences and virtually travel to distant lands and learn about other cultures,” said Amanda. “I’m looking forward to our autumn Europe voyage, when I can meet and share in an unforgettable journey with my fans and visit, in person, some of my favorite destinations that have influenced my writing.”
The 13-night trip begins with an overnight in London, docked alongside the historic HMS Belfast and adjacent to the city’s defining landmark, the Tower Bridge. Guests also enjoy overnights in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Paris (Honfleur) and Bordeaux, France, where they can take in the nightlife, when the true culture of these marquee destinations happen. Other ports-of-call include Guernsey; St. Malo and Belle Isle, France; and La Coruna, Spain. The voyage concludes at Porto (Leixoes), Portugal, on 02OCT.
