Family & Friends Charter Cruises
Families or groups of friends can charter any of the hotel barges. You will have the whole vessel to yourselves and she becomes a home from home, except that the crew takes care of all the hard work! Whether you are young or old or a combination of all ages, whether there’s cause for celebration, or just a chance to enjoy each other’s company…a family or friends’ charter cruise really does take some beating.
We recognise that hectic lifestyles allow little time for families to spend precious leisure time together and planning a holiday with children can be a real challenge, ensuring that the accommodation, meals and activities are all suitable. Our tailored family charters offer a perfect solution and the opportunity to share an experience that will be talked about over family dinners for years and generations to come.
The voyage itself is great fun. Grandchildren may find themselves steering their 126 foot vessel along a tree-lined canal, perhaps joining their cousins in the barge spa pool, or biking together on the towpath, as their parents relax alongside on the sun deck just a few feet away.
And having your own onboard chef means that meal arrangements are both enjoyable and flexible. Dinner can be enjoyed as a family, with perhaps a casual barbecue during the week for children to enjoy some alfresco dining.
Ashore, as well as our traditional visits to castles, palaces and old fortified cities, you have the possibility of other fun activities tailored to teenagers or younger children – please ask us for details.
So wherever you choose to cruise with your family or friends – maybe in Scotland where you can do some ‘Nessie Spotting’ and take a steam train ride, or perhaps in the Midi where you will explore fortified, medieval cities such as Carcassonne – you can all be sure of having an unforgettable time together.
