CroisiEurope is considered one of the largest river cruise lines, with more than 55 ships in its fleet. The company says its new GM will highlight the value and opportunity that it brings with its catalogue of cruises, experience, and customer service in North America. Aside from its European river cruises, CroisiEurope’s fleet includes canal barges in France, coastal Mediterranean cruises, the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia, and the company's newest endeavor: a safari-style cruise on Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe.

Next month, CroisiEurope is launching a seven-day cruise on the Rhone, sailing roundtrip from Lyon through France. The cruise will focus on the region's food and wine.
