CroisiEurope is a 37-year-old French family-run business, building, owning and operating 28 elegant ships, with average capacity of 100 to 180 passengers. Offering excellent value for money, these prestigious river cruise ships are designed to sail in any water conditions, to fit under low and narrow bridges and navigate challenging rivers and canals.
CroisiEurope seeks out creative itineraries and often operates on rivers where nobody else cruises, such as the Guadalquivir and Guadina rivers in Spain, the Tisza in Hungary, Venice lagoon and the Po in Italy in addition to rivers such as the Rhine, Danube, Seine, Rhone, Saone, Gironde, Garonne and Douro and the canals of France. CroisiEurope also offers a selection of coastal cruises in the Adriatic and Mediterranean on the 100-cabin M/S Belle de l'Adreatique which can reach small ports and harbours which are inaccessible to large cruise ships.
Unique itineraries are available on most European rivers ranging from three nights in Paris to 12-night transcontinental cruises all the way to the Black Sea. Prices start from just 300 Euros per person for three nights full-board on a Paris Taster mini-cruise. CroisiEurope also offers a number of themed cruises including lifestyle gourmet & wine cruises, cruise & hike for active guests; classical music cruises, harvest festival cruises, Christmas markets and Christmas and New Year cruises.
CroisiEurope's fleet, with between 50 to 90 cabins on each ship, offers excellent onboard facilities, combining sophisticated "Francophile" lifestyle with insightful itineraries and - of course - panoramic views from cabins, lounges and sundecks. All cabins are outside cabins with panoramic windows, fully equipped with bathrooms, TVs, hair dryers and air conditioning.
· In August 2012, CroisiEurope acquired La Jeanine, a 12-cabin hotel barge which will sail on the Alsace canals and in Burgundy, offering bespoke experiences with English speaking commentaries between May and October each year.
· Following unprecedented success and continued demand for five-, six-, seven- and eight-night Gironde & Garonne river cruises from Bordeaux, CroisiEurope will increase its Bordeaux cruise departures when the brand new "M/S Cyrano de Bergerac" joins M/S Princess d'Aquitaine in May 2013.
