CroisiEurope Reveals the MS Lafayette

This April, CroisiEurope will unveil the newest member of its Rhine fleet, the MS Lafayette. This ship will have spacious cabins, floor-to-ceiling picture windows and a modern interior. The ship has a new route that travels through Holland, Germany and Switzerland including optional excursions to the Mainau Island, Mainz, the Black Forest and the Titisee and more. CroisiEurope will be christening the MS Lafayette on March 28, 2014 with Mary Rose N. Reade, the wife of the U.S. Consul General in Strasbourg Evan G. Reade, as godmother of the ship.

CroisiEurope’s newest vessel is named after General Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, the French military hero whose unwavering support of the American Army during the Revolutionary War ensured American liberty and solidified a historic bond between these two great nations. As godmother of the MS Lafayette, Reade’s American heritage embodies the French-American bond created by Lafayette himself.

By decreasing the overall number of cabins, the MS Lafayette will have larger, more spacious cabins on board. Each cabin will be roughly 161 square feet with remarkable floor-to-ceiling picture windows providing sweeping, panoramic views of the passing landscapes. The ship, at 295 feet long, can accommodate up to 84 passengers in 42 rooms and has a dining room, lounge and deck decorated in an inviting, modern style. Cabins will come equipped with a wide-screen TV, safe, hair dryer, mini bar, individual air-conditioning and heating controls and more.
