Day 1: Embarkation and Departure from Paris (3)

Cheryl Imboden on French balcony of RIVER BARONESS

River Baroness was scheduled to depart around 6 p.m. Shortly before departure, CroisiEurope's Renoir was untied from our ship, and it moved out of the way to give us a view of the Seine and the 16th Arrondissement on the Right Bank.

In this photo, Cheryl has opened our cabin's glass doors and is enjoying the view from our French balcony.

CroisiEurope RENOIR and Pont Mirabeau in Paris

Here, you can see Renoir standing by for our departure. The Pont Mirabeau, one of the prettiest bridges in Paris, is in the background.

Departure from Paris on RIVER BARONESS

Railroad bridge near Paris

Soon, we were on our way to Normandy, passing under the many bridges that crossed the Seine in Paris and in the city's residential and industrial outskirts.

Boat on River Seine

Along the way, we passed many boats and barges, including this vintage wooden boat, the C├┤te de Nacre.

Monet Lounge and bar waiter on Uniworld RIVER BARONESS

Some passengers enjoyed views from the Sun Deck, while others preferred the warmer temperatures and bar service in the Monet Lounge.

Captain Emmanual Quendera on RIVER BARONESS

Later in the evening, after dinner, we passed through the first in a series of Seine River locks.

The man at the controls is Captain Emmanuel Quendera, the 30-year-old First Captain on our River Baroness cruise. Captain Emmanuel began his career as a sailor at the age of 17 and worked his way up to a master's certificate. He told us that he prefers the Seine to France's other great rivers because its currents, tides, and occasionally foggy weather make it a great test of a captain's skills.
