Enjoy daily shore excursions, special EmeraldPLUS cultural experiences, plus the EmeraldACTIVE program, all of which are included. Whether you prefer hiking through picturesque vineyards, canoeing through Avignon, cycling through the idyllic countryside, visiting iconic architectural landmarks, or indulging in the region's culinary delights, there's something for everyone.
