National Geographic Seine River Photo Cruise
National Geographic Seine River Photo Cruise



This cruise opportunity is not a Pocono Photo Club event - we have no financial interest in this event. But we thought that it might be of interest to you as we start to crawl out of our pandemic cocoons and hidey-holes. It is far enough in the future (2022) to probably not be impacted by current travel restrictions.

 

Details are still being solidified, but here is some tentative information provided by Disney:

 

While each person's information will vary, here is some general information regarding this itinerary (which is spectacular, by the way!)


This is a 7 night/8 day trip. These sailings with a National Geographic Photographer are being offered for 3 sailings only.

 

~ June 9th - June 16th, 2022

~ June 23 - June 30th, 2022

~ July 14th - July 21, 2022


Prices for this cruise start at $4989 per person (Flights are not included, however transportation to and from the airport is included in this cost) . This cost can vary depending on the stateroom category and location on the ship. It includes most meals, and numerous opportunities for amazing photos depending on each days excursions. You will have the incredible access to no less than 2 adventure guides on your trip as well. The actual itinerary has not yet been released, due to the fact that THESE sailings are primarily photography based, and ports will include the best places to capture amazing photos.
