Families With Children Cruises
If you are a family with children, we are able to create a bespoke itinerary and substitute a maximum of 4 excursions from any of our Classic Cruise Itineraries with your preferred family activities.
Family charter cruises are available on all our hotel barges and you will have the whole vessel to yourselves as she becomes your home from home - except we do all the hard work!
Whether there’s a special family celebration, or perhaps it's just a chance to enjoy each other’s company, a hotel barge cruise really does take some beating whatever your age.
Many years of experience have shown us that every family group is different and we try our hardest to ensure you enjoy the very best of the region you have chosen, be it the Scottish Highlands, England, Ireland, Holland, Italy, Burgundy or the South of France.
Having your own chef on board makes mealtimes both enjoyable and flexible. Dinner can be enjoyed as a family, with perhaps a casual BBQ, or for younger children, earlier meals can be served with all their favourites. Alternatively, the older children can join the adults for dinner and then break between courses for an evening stroll before bedtime. The grown-ups can then relax with another glass of wine, or perhaps a warming single malt whisky.
The voyage itself is great fun. The young ones may find themselves steering their 128 foot-long barge - with a little help from the Captain! - or perhaps joining their cousins in the barge jacuzzi or biking together along the towpath as their parents relax on the sundeck just a few feet away. The 8 passenger hotel barge Anjodi is a great example of a barge and itinerary seemingly perfect for a family to enjoy.
Ashore, we can arrange a wide selection of family activities locally to suit all ages, such as theme park visits, go-karting, tennis, canoeing and exploring prehistoric caves, old castles and battlefields. Other activities such as hot-air ballooning and horse-riding can be booked directly by the family group with the provider. Child equipment such as high-chairs, car seats, travel cots, children’s bicycles, helmets and seats are all available on request without cost.
