All our hotel barge cruises guarantee a fully-crewed luxury vessel that accommodates between just six & twenty passengers. These intimate, small groups allow us to create the atmosphere of a floating house party on board.
You may choose to charter a whole boat with family & friends, or join a small group of like-minded travellers on an individual cabin basis. We can also arrange a wide selection of themed barge cruises which will appeal to all types of interest groups, big or small, including golf, walking & wine appreciation themed cruises.
Every European Waterways six-night barge cruise includes all gourmet meals, regional wines, an open bar, local transfers & the use of barge facilities such as bicycles to explore the towpaths, a sundeck to laze on, or a spa pool to relax in. We also offer daily escorted excursions off the beaten track to wineries, castles, markets or to see craftsmen at work.
All this, combined with a few hours sedate cruising each day through some of Europe's finest scenery, makes a hotel barge cruise with us a truly unique experience
