France: Champagne cruise

Croisi Champagne-Aumieres, 12 Rue de la Cooperative, 51480 Cumieres; 011-33-326-54-4951, "Spent a wonderful day visiting Champagne cellars and cruising on the Marne River on this outing. We visited a well-known cellar; then while aboard the boat, we had lunch, a live band played and there was dancing. Back on land, we visited another cellar and took a guided tour of the historical village of Hautvilliers." About $80 per person.
