European Waterways' 2016 Hotel Barge Brochure Highlights New Ship

european waterwaysEuropean Waterways has launched its new 2016 / 2017 hotel barge brochure. 

The new brochure features a choice of cruises on 17 hotel barges on the inland waterways of France, Italy, Holland, Belgium, England, Scotland, and Ireland, as well as a selection of special themed cruises. This edition has been expanded to 80 pages and now includes a number of two-page photographs – including aerial views – aimed at capturing the hotel barge cruise experience, plus detailed cruise route maps and itineraries.

European Waterways’ 2016/17 program also highlights the newest addition to its fleet, the luxury hotel barge Finesse. Starting in May 2016, the Finesse will cruise the River Saône and the Canal du Centre in Southern Burgundy. A modern interior emphasizes natural light and offers guests the chance to relax on the large sun deck with its alfresco dining area and spa pool. The vessel accommodates up to eight passengers in four air-conditioned twin or double-bedded suites, all with ensuite facilities.

European Waterways also continues to develop its themed cruises. Among the themed cruises featured in the 2016/17 program are Wine Appreciation, Walking, Golf, and Opera cruises. Families and other small groups can also charter a hotel barge, with the opportunity to customize the itinerary to meet their special interests.
