Find a France Vacation

Join European Waterways for a truly exceptional experience on a luxury barge cruise. From Burgundy's picturesque vineyards and southern France's sunny banks to the spectacular Scottish Highlands and the beautiful Mosel region in Germany, guests enjoy stunning scenery, captivating history and local culture while traveling on an intimate floating hotel.

Far removed from the hustle and bustle of city life, European Waterways' barge itineraries boast a balanced blend of intriguing daily excursions and a relaxing onboard atmosphere. A captain and host accompany each voyage, while a tour leader introduces you to castles, chateaux, vineyards and markets on guided tours. The barge's master chef prepares delicious gourmet cuisine paired with fine wines, and an open bar is stocked with other alcoholic beverages and soft drinks.

Each barge is open for both individual bookings and full-ship charters and carries between six and 20 passengers; tandem cruises are available for larger parties. Special theme cruises cater to those who enjoy a specific sport or hobby. All barges combine elegant décor with modern amenities for an upscale ambiance.

Europe River cruises are rated according to the quality of the vessel and its accommodations, the number of included amenities and activities both on and off the ship, the class of hotels used for land portions of itineraries, and the level of service delivered. European Waterways river cruises are categorized as deluxe on the industry rating scale (budget, first class and deluxe).
