Three family-themed cruises, scheduled for this summer, are now bookable by cabins, with guaranteed departures when a minimum of three passengers book up to two cabins. We are also offering discounts for guests under 18, providing an excellent opportunity for small families to take advantage of their family-friendly itineraries in different regions of France. The three hotel barges participating in this offer are L’Art de Vivre, departing August 7th, Anjodi departing August 14th and Panache departing August 21st.
We understand how challenging it is for many family members to plan vacation time together. A hotel barge cruise can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a family to enjoy quality time together. A family as small as three people, booking a minimum of two cabins, can be confident that on the date they booked their hotel barge, which can accommodate 8 or 12 guests, will be waiting for them, and of course they will enjoy all the usual amenities from an attentive crew whether all the other cabins are booked or not.
While the eight-passenger L’Art de Vivre’s family-themed cruise passes through the scenic Burgundy countryside, the vessel’s itinerary includes a visit to Cardoland prehistoric World of Dinosaurs, canoe trips, and a tour of the Caves of Ancy sur Cure, a major site for Palaeolithic cave paintings.
The 8-passenger Anjodi, based on the Canal du Midi, could include a family visit to Aqualand Cap D’Agde, a popular family water park. The itinerary also includes a tour of the Oppidum d’Enserune Roman settlement and the prehistoric Grotte de Limousis prehistoric caves.
The 12-passenger Panache, which cruises the Alsace-Lorraine region of France, can include a visit to the Centre Aquatique Sarrebourg water park as well as the Alpine Luge at Lutzelbourg – a 1,640-foot high-speed rail ride down a mountainside. There is also a visit to the Saint Croix Animal Park and the Chocolate Museum in Strasbourg.
