For our latest jaunt, Erin and I ditched the kids and jumped the pond for a weeklong river cruise through the rolling countryside and sprawling vineyards of Provence and Burgundy, France.
Friends and family had been raving about these more intimate, upscale, adults-only cousins of the typical cruise experience, but do they live up to the Lockwood standard? In this episode, you’ll get to experience our stateroom, every nook and cranny of the ship, the local vibes at various ports of call, and plenty of Michelin-starred French dishes, French cheeses, French sweets, and of course—French wine.
This trip was especially luxurious because it combined some incredible Polaris upgrades through our latest status as Platinum United MileagePlus frequent fliers, as well as travel booked through our American Express Business Platinum Card benefits with Amex Travel.
A big “thank you” to the amazing crew at Amadeus River Cruises for a stellar voyage and to our travel group with Inspirato Pass, who offered this experience through our membership.
