About European Waterways:
There is no more relaxing and stylish way to experience the rich history, culture and cuisine of Europe than with European Waterways luxury hotel barge cruises. Just let the beautiful countryside slowly pass you by as their attentive crews ensure your every need is catered for.
From the comfort of their luxury hotel barges, you can discover the very best of France, such as the historic Canal due Midi, the famed wine regions of Burgundy and Champagne, picturesque Alsace and Lorraine, and a foodie’s dream – Gascony and Bordeaux. Head to the UK and Ireland to discover Scotland’s legendary Loch Ness and the Great Glen along the Caledonian Canal or cruise the Royal River Thames amidst England’s picture-perfect countryside, or perhaps witness lush landscapes and hear enchanting folklore on the waters of Ireland’s River Shannon. In Italy, you’ll cruise Venice and the Veneto for a taste of romance, Renaissance architecture and spectacular canals.
On board, you’ll enjoy regional fine wines (and whiskies in Scotland!) and excellent food aboard your floating hotel. You’ll have the opportunity to discover the hidden wonders of the ‘old world’, either exploring on your own or with our knowledgeable guides. Visit castles, ancient monuments and historic sites; be carried away by the sights, sounds and smells of charming traditional markets. Or, if relaxation is key, then take the time to savour the peace and quiet, your wonderful surroundings and the river wildlife beyond and below.
Experienced captains ensure a safe and yet exciting passage along your chosen journey. Chefs prepare a wide and varied range of exquisite regional dishes to suit your every taste, and our stewards and stewardesses will be on hand to ensure that our high standards are maintained throughout your entire vacation.
Your health and safety is European Waterways first priority, and they’re following all appropriate measures to ensure that already strict safety and hygiene procedures address the threat of COVID-19, whilst maintaining the relaxed and enjoyable ambience that guests know and love.
If you are looking for a relaxing European vacation with great food, fine wines, informative and interesting excursions and some time off to be treated and pampered, then all that remains is for you to choose which of European Waterway’s luxury barges and cruises appeals to you most.
