PREPARING FOR THE CRUISE

In advance of the Globe Seine River Cruise, July 1 – 11, 2019, please find below some information to help you prepare and get ready for the cruise.

 ATTIRE ON THE GLOBE SEINE RIVER CRUISE

Average temperature in the Normandy area France in July is a daytime high of 24 degrees Celsius to as low as 10 degrees Celsius in the evening. We therefore suggest clothing that will keep you cool and offer protection from the sun during outdoor excursions during the day and light jackets or sweaters in the evening. The atmosphere onboard the Scenic Gem ship is relaxed and casual. Suggestions for appropriate attire include sundresses, blouses, skirts, dress shorts, polo shirts and light dress shirts for both daytime activities and dinner. Ties are not required.

DRESSIER OCCASIONS

A few events during the Globe Seine River Cruise require somewhat dressier attire. For these occasions, we suggest a cocktail dress or skirt/slacks and a blouse for women, and slacks and an open dress shirt for men. Suit jackets or ties are not required nor recommended due to the expected warm temperatures, though they are optional.  Please ensure that you also have comfortable footwear suitable for walking on uneven ground and cobblestones.  The dressier occasions are listed below.
