more deals


European Waterways has announced the launch of its 2011 season with spring specials offering savings of up to $5,000 for whole-boat charters, $1,000 off per cabin, and a host of other great values on popular barging routes in Europe.
In addition to discounts for many Burgundy cruises, specials include $5,000 off the charter price for the newest member of the fleet, La Bella Vita, which cruises Venice to Mantua

Additional spring specials include cruises on the Canal du Midi, the Canal of the Two Seas.  A UNESCO Word Heritage Site, the canal connects the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean

European Waterways also offers $3,000 off whole boat charter prices for cruises in Scotland and England, as well as a Holland Tulip cruise with April departures at 25% off full charter price for 10 to 12 passengers. 
Vessels accommodate from 8 to 12 passengers, with up to 20 passengers for La Bella Vita.  Cabin rates are based on double occupancy and all rates are subject to certain restrictions. 

The latest addition to European Waterways’ fleet, La Bella Vita, “the beautiful life,” offers itineraries that spans the Venetian Lagoon and the River Po Valley to the Renaissance city of Mantua, a name derived from the Etruscan god Mantus of Hades. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mantua traces its roots to the Roman period and features many medieval buildings such as the magnificent 14th century Ducal Palace.
The vessel La Bella Vita accommodates from 12 to 20 passengers and European Waterways is offering $5,000 off the charter price if booked by February 25.

Rejoining European Waterways’ extensive fleet, the 8-passenger Rosa offers a cruise through Gascony or the Canal du Midi, depending on departure date. An old Dutch “Clipper” barge, it was completely renovated in 2010 and now offers guests wine, Armagnac and foie gras tastings, a visit to Moissac and the ancient abbey, a gourmet dinner ashore, as well as the opportunity to explore the wines of Bordeaux.  
Rosa’s classic Canal du Midi cruise includes a visit to La Cité de Carcassonne, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the Gallo-Roman era and features the most complete medieval fortified city in existence today. It also includes an excursion to the wineries of the Limoux region, which offer the famous “blanquette,” wines, which are made from the white grapes of the region. 

European Waterways offers $3,000 off the whole boat charter for all April and May departures if booked by February 25.

Deal Dates: January 19, 2011 - February 25, 2011
