European Waterways

We have been involved in all aspects of the hotel barge and travel industry for over 35 years including designing, building, owning and operating our fleet of luxury hotel barges. We have gradually refined our barge cruise holidays into unique travel experiences, which are just waiting to be discovered.

Our fully crewed, all inclusive luxury hotel barges cruise the inland waterways of nine European countries, along canals, rivers, lakes, lagoons and lochs, giving you the opportunity to experience life there from a truly unique perspective.

Our hotel barges are ideal for people looking for either an individual cruise with other like-minded people, or for those choosing a whole barge charter for a family or group of friends.

On your all-inclusive cruise, your ‘floating boutique hotel’ glides gently along while you relax and enjoy gourmet cuisine, fine wines and the company of fellow passengers. There will be guided tours to castles, chateaux, vineyards, markets and when you return to the barge, you can be sure our dedicated, professional crew will be there to look after you once more.

The classic traditions of French and International Cuisine - an unforgettable highlight of your cruise. Our chefs are experienced culinary artists, whose gastronomic creations are often rated higher than top restaurants and cruise liners by our discerning clients.

Before you awaken each morning, a crew member has already been ashore to collect crisp breads, buttery croissants and a variety of fresh pastries. Together with the aroma of coffee, the day has just begun.

Lunch will be a colorful arrangement of salads, pates, savoury quiches and a selection of cheeses. Accompanied by an excellent choice from the hotel barge wine cellar, lunch is often enjoyed on the sun deck, perhaps while cruising.

Your chef supplements the vessel’s larder with fresh produce bought from lock-keepers' gardens or local markets and creates mouthwatering regional and national dishes which are only challenged in flavour by the delicious range of regional wines that are served aboard.

Dinner is the culinary highlight of each day. Served by candlelight, each course is a delicious creation, subtly complemented with fine wines and still and sparkling water. This really does feel like the Grand Finale to an amazing day of exploration and intrigue, cruising the old trading routes which stretch from the Mediterranean right across Europe.

Requests for vegetarian and special diets may be made the time of reservation.

Tipping

Any gratuities you wish to give are entirely at your discretion. For guidance only, our passengers normally tip between 5 and 10% of the cruise price if they are fully satisfied with the level of service.
