European Waterways Offers Savings on 2014 Barge Itineraries

European Waterways is kicking off the 2014 season with a selection of cruises that immerse guests in the scenery, cuisine and cultural heritage of some of Europe’s most popular regions.

Now and through early May, cruising aboard the 12-passenger hotel barge Panache, travelers experience the culture, architecture and beauty of Holland. In June, Panache is repositioned in the Alsace region of France, where guests enjoy a mix of French and German cultures, cuisine, architecture and fine wines. With a large sun deck, a spa pool and bicycles to ride along the Alsace towpaths, Panache offers passengers a chance to explore historic sites. Highlights include a visit to the Rene Lalique glass collection and Strasbourg’s gothic Cathedral, as well as a chance to see the unique Arzviller boat elevator, which transports the barge 450 feet up a mountainside.

This year, European Waterways is offering $5,000 off Panache’s full-boat charter price and $1,000 off per cabin on select cruises in July and August.

The L’Art de Vivre sails through Burgundy, France, visiting the Château de Bazoches, the Auxerre and its cathedral and the medieval village of Vezelay and its hilltop basilica. 

Guests can enjoy up to $1,000 off per cabin for select May cruises, as well as up to $6,000 off the full eight-passenger charter prices for select cruises through May. Guests can also enjoy up to $3,000 off the full charter price for select cruises in July and August.   

Cabin specials are based on double occupancy. Other restrictions may apply.
