Paris, France
France's capital, Paris, is a global centre for art, fashion, gastronomy, and culture. Its most famous landmark is the Eiffel Tower with steps and elevators leading to observation decks and offering spectacular citywide views. The Louvre Museum is packed with huge art collections, Roman sculptures, and is home to the iconic Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci. The huge Gothic Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris features flying buttresses and gargoyles. Pay a visit to the impressive Sacre Coeur and then meander through the cobblestone streets of Montmartre. The famous Arc de Triomphe commemorates Napoleon's victories and the adjoining Avenue des Champs-Elysees is lined with elegant restaurants, bars, and boutiques. The Palace of Versailles is an 18th-century palace filled with extraordinary apartments and the acclaimed Hall of Mirrors. No trip to Paris would be complete without taking an evening bateau-mouche cruise along the River Seine to see the city's famous sights illuminated against the night sky.

A high percentage of balcony staterooms give guests the chance to view this feat of engineering up-close, or take in stunning views of spectacular glaciers during cruises to Alaska. Featured on just one other Princess ship, the Bayou Café and SteakhouseSM is a unique dining venue on board in which to enjoy authentic New Orleans cuisine accompanied by live jazz.
