CroisiEurope, a European river cruise line, inaugurated three new ships this spring, bringing its fleet to a total of 55 vessels. These new additions — including the MS Van Gogh, MS Renoir, and MS Elbe Princesse II — reflect the continued growing demand for river cruising, the cruise line said. Two of this year’s inaugurations are for ships that underwent complete redesigns, while the third is a new build.
The MS Van Gogh and MS Renoir have been completely redesigned to provide more spaces to passengers — meeting the requirements of a Premium Class ship. Both ships will hold a total of 54 Wi-Fi connected cabins for up to 105 passengers. The MS Van Gogh will cruise from Lyon on the Rhône and Saône Rivers, and the MS Renoir will cruise on the Seine between Paris and Honfleur.
CroisiEurope’s youngest ship, the MS Elbe Princesse II, is the sibling ship to the MS Elbe Princesse and incorporates the same paddlewheel technology that gives the vessels a low draft. This new-build has 45 cabins for a total capacity of 86 passengers, including three single cabins and one handicap accessible cabin. This ship will cruise on the Elbe and Vltava Rivers between Berlin and Prague.
Earlier this year, CroisiEurope launched a re-designed Southern Africa water-and-land program onboard the RV African Dream, CroisiEurope’s new luxury ship cruising along Lake Kariba. In 2019, CroisiEurope has plans to build another new ship, the MS Amalia Rodrigues, destined for the Douro. It will be the company’s sixth ship on this river.
In addition to the new ships, CroisiEurope also announced a special fare for solo cruisers – the Single supplement fee is being waived on all 2019 cruise departures on bookings made before June 30, 2018. Solo travelers can choose from CroisiEurope's portfolio of French canal cruises, European river cruises, out of Europe cruises in Africa or Vietnam and Cambodia, coastal cruises or themed itineraries. Departures on the latest ships like the Van Gogh, the Elbe Princesse II, the Renoir or CroisiEurope's African Dream all qualify for this offer.
