Welcome to Issue 66 of The Lock-Keeper
Hello Lock-Keeper Reader,
Welcome to the 66th issue of the European Waterways Newsletter and I do hope you enjoy reading it.
The big news is that we have just launched our new-look website. It now has a fresher look and is easier for you to navigate and search for your hotel barge voyage by cruise area, by barge, or by cruise type. There are also new features such as maps for all the barge routes. We do hope you like it.
We are also preparing our next brochure and would value your comments on our current brochure so that we can incorporate as many improvements as possible into the new design. In a short questionnaire there is the opportunity to have your say.
We feature an article by travel writer Mike Martin, who cruised aboard L'Impressionniste through the vineyards of Southern Burgundy.
We also have details of a UK Summer Cruise Fair event being held at the prestigious Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey on July 18 at which we are participating. It's being organised by upmarket cruise agent White Star Cruises and there are complimentary tickets available for those of you who would like to come along and meet us.
If you are a lover of French cheeses, we have a wonderfully evocative book 'Tasting to Eternity' to give away in our competition, plus there is news of barge refurbishments and special theme cruises.
Finally, don't forget to take a look at our Special Offers. As usual we have some very attractive deals on many hotel barges in our fleet, for this year and 2011.
As always, it is good to hear from you, so please drop us an email with any comments about the new website, The Lock-Keeper, or indeed anything else. I hope to see you at our website www.gobarging.com where you can find out all about European Waterways and keep up to date with the latest barging news.
