River cruising in Europe is an experience like no other: elegant, intimate and unforgettable. Join CroisiEurope for one of the best river cruises in Europe and experience the sunlit vineyards and olive orchards of Italy, the glittering night-lit bridges of Paris and the ancient castles and forts of Spain. Europe is waiting for you. A family business founded in 1976, CroisiEurope operates 50 cruise boats, including canal barges in France and a maritime coastal ship in its fleet of modern small boats.
CroisiEurope also offers exotic and remote cruises in legendary countries among picturesque landscapes, far from our European roots: the Volga, Dnieper and Mekong rivers, as well as the Irrawaddy in Myanmar and the Chobe in Africa. These rivers have written the history of the populations that live on the banks and illustrate the wanderlust that drives people to learn and explore other cultures.
Following the huge successes of the MS Loire Princesse in 2015 and the MS Elbe Princesse in 2016, CroisiEurope will continue the expansion of its fleet in 2018 with a third paddle riverboat for the Elbe and the Vltava Rivers. This new ship will cruise between Berlin and the heart of Prague, with passengers climbing aboard for a unique itinerary between Germany and the Czech Republic.
Beginning April 2017, the MS Miguel Torga will be launched on the Douro River in Portugal, sailing from Porto and stopping in Regua, Vega de Terron, Ferradosa and Pinhão. The three-deck ship will boast a pool, contemporary interior design and 66 cabins that will accommodate 132 passengers. Offering eight-day cruises, it will join CroisiEurope’s four other ships on the ‘Golden River’.
In 2017, CroisiEurope will be enhancing their excursions to offer guests more choice and meet the growing demand for more authentic experiences. New excursion packages – the Discovery Package – have been launched for each cruise itinerary allowing guests to discover new active, unusual and original excursions, which will surprise and enchant those looking to experience more adventurous and sensation-filled activities. Off the beaten path sights, local product tasting and helicopter rides are among the many exciting experiences CroisiEurope has hand-picked for their passengers!
As a result of the popularity of its current theme cruises, CroisiEurope has introduced a brand new theme for 2017. The company’s CroisiBike cruises are available on five European rivers – the Danube, Loire, Gironde, Rhone and Rhine – and are perfect for those wanting to explore by bike and on water.
All the CroisiBike cruises include a number of escorted bike tours along some of the most beautiful cycling paths as well as the services of an English-speaking tour guide, bicycle and on-call maintenance and repair service.
CroisiEurope’s cruises have an international feel with a French touch onboard and boast the widest selection of destinations and itineraries with great value for money. CroisiEurope carefully designs and plans their cuisine and menus in the exacting tradition of fine French gastronomy. Each meal on every cruise will give guests a delightful experience of French haute cuisine. The company’s chefs have worked alongside such Michelin-starred greats as Paul Bocuse and Marc Haeberlin while CroisiEurope’s head chef, Alain Bohn, was recently nominated as a member of the Maîtres Cuisiniers de France. This esteemed French association, created 50 years ago, comprises just 250 chefs worldwide.
Once you are onboard a CroisiEurope ship, life becomes almost effortless as you unpack only once, relax, enjoy and let the ship sweep you along to each new and fascinating destination.
