CroisiEurope River Cruise Routes
CroisiEurope offers a full programme of itineraries and a good choice of durations, with Seine river cruises providing a delightful introduction to Paris and the charming countryside of Normandy. Cruising the Loire Valley, meanwhile, takes you past many of France’s most impressive chateaux. You can taste wine from some of France’s most revered vineyards, by exploring the wonders of Bordeaux on the Garonne, or cruising through Burgundy and Provence on the Rhône. Or choose a Rhine cruise and discover truly fascinating medieval history and the superb wines of Alsace.
In line with CroisiEurope’s ethos of providing great value for money, cabins and suites aren’t the largest, but they are still comfortably sized and most have balconies. Décor is modern European in style, the newer ships being the most luxurious. There’s an average of one crew member per three passengers, so service levels are very good.
Ambience & Cuisine
The ambience on board is most definitely French, from the modern European décor to the French speaking staff (although all speak English too). Service is attentive, but the real star of the show is the cuisine. CroisiEurope’s head chef was recently inducted into the esteemed Maître Cuisiniers de France, who number only 250 worldwide. The accent is on classic French haute cuisine and standards are consistently high for all three course lunches and dinners. Drinks are included with lunch and dinner.
CroisiEurope offers plenty of options when it comes to excursions. Choose between the Classic Package for the traditional cultural and historical tours, while the Discovery Package offers out of the ordinary experiences like tastings and gourmet tours, hikes and expeditions.
