Join us aboard the AmaDolce for your journey along the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, April 9-16, 2020!

In honour of our 2020 feature country, France, the Vancouver International Wine Festival has partnered with Expedia Cruise Ship Centers to curate this unique river cruise through Bordeaux wine regions. Net proceeds of your cruise help support our charitable beneficiary, Bard on the Beach.

Expedia Criuse Ship Centers generously donated a balcony stateroom to this cruise for the 2019 Bacchanalia Gala Live Auction, which prompted lively bidding, raising $16,000 for Bard!
