A Floating Rhône Custom Cruise
with Classical KING FM




 June 30–July 9, 2020

Dear Music Lovers,

Following the grand success of our exclusive cruises on the Danube and the Seine, we are now offering a new private adventure on the magnificent Rhône river. Join KING FM host Sean MacLean, and fellow KING FM listeners who share an insatiable passion for great music, food, wine, art and history. This Epicurean journey will begin in the City of Light, Paris, where you will have time to visit your favorite museums, bookstores, markets and cafes. The highlight of our stay there will be a performance of Mozart’s loveable Così fan tutte at the gorgeous Palais Garnier Opera House. Then we are off to Burgundy to sample some fine wines in the charming town of Beaune. Upon arrival in Lyon we’ll board our privately chartered ship, the First Class MS Amadeus Provence. Violinist extraordinaire Amanda Favier along with some of France’s finest instrumentalists will perform a carefully curated chamber music repertoire on board for an intimate and unforgettable immersion. This is chamber music the way it was meant to be shared! And as always, more musical offerings will be revealed.

This new cruise with the Travel Club will be my fourth and I have, over the years, cherished the precious memories of each adventure with the realization that KING FM listeners are truly very special people and wonderful company! I will, once again, look forward to meeting you all.

With warmest regards,

Christophe Chagnard
