PARIS SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL 2024 | River Cruise Edition



+++ 1st River Cruise Edition +++

WEEK 1 | 23-30 October 2024

Since over 25 editions our boutique-style Smooth Jazz Festivals have been known for their cosmopolitan, familiar atmosphere at unique places: Good music. Good food. Good wine. Equal to a good time! But what about pushing this concept to the limit? More boutique-style. More familiar. More unique places. Equal to a more personal experience! What if the festival does not take place in a ‘5-star hotel on land’, but in a ‘5-star hotel (ship) on the Seine in Paris’?

This week-long cruise aboard the AMADEUS Diamond begins and ends in Paris – the city of light. Combine the most romantic city in the world with the most fascinating Smooth Jazz masters live on stage every evening. And during the days, follow the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Gauguin while winding along the Seine River into the beautiful Normandy region to Le Havre on the rugged Atlantic Coast. Idyllic villages, the ‘museum town’ of Rouen and the picturesque harbor town of Honfleur are among the wonders to be explored during this cruise. A limited festival experience to max. 130 guests.
