Welcome to our exclusive collection of luxury hotel barge cruises. For many years, we have specialised in creating slow paced cruise vacations on some of the most beautiful inland waterways in Europe, giving our guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in the gastronomy, culture and history of the regions we pass through.
All our hotel barge cruises guarantee a fully-crewed luxury vessel that accommodates between just six and twenty passengers. These intimate, small groups allow us to create the atmosphere of a floating house party on board.
You may choose to charter a whole boat with family and friends, or join a small group of like-minded travellers on an individual cabin basis. We can also arrange a wide selection of themed barge cruises which will appeal to all types of interest groups, big or small, including golf, walking and wine appreciation themed cruises.
Every European Waterways six-night barge cruise includes all gourmet meals, regional wines, an open bar, local transfers and the use of barge facilities such as bicycles to explore the towpaths, a sundeck to laze on, or a spa pool to relax in. We also offer daily escorted excursions “off the beaten track” to wineries, castles, markets or to see craftsmen at work.
All this, combined with a few hours’ sedate cruising each day through some of Europe’s finest scenery, makes a hotel barge cruise with us a truly unique experience.
