Cruises on the Gironde Estuary, and on the Garonne and Dordogne rivers




This May, the MS Cyrano de Bergerac will join the CroisiEurope fleet and be transferred from Strasbourg to Bordeaux where it will join the MS Princesse d’Aquitaine. It will have its inaugural voyage on Friday 17th May at the Quai des Chartrons in the presence of a privileged few.

Straight out of the Meuse & Sambre shipyard at Namur where its motorised hull was conceived, the MS Cyrano de Bergerac was designed and built by the CroisiEurope team under the direction of the company engineer. The vessel has been completely equipped, furnished and decorated at the River Station in Strasbourg, home to the company’s headquarters. For three months, teams from 25 loyal and trusted companies worked continuously to make the ship supremely elegant and attractive, and provide it with unrivalled levels of comfort for the benefit of the passengers. 

The cruise liner can accommodated 180 passengers in cabins located on three decks. It is 110 metres long by 11.4 metres wide. The attractive restaurant is large enough to serve all passengers in a single sitting. The ship’s galley kitchens are furnished with top-of-the-range high precision kitchen utensils and equipment in order to provide meals of the highest quality. A spacious lounge bar with a dance floor in the centre offers passengers an ideal area to relax and socialise. There is also a Pianorama Bar which is smaller and cosier than the main lounge bar. There is a very large sun deck of more than 1000 square metres, where passengers can relax on deck chairs and enjoy the sun and fresh air to the full. The elegant and warm d├ęcor is entirely in keeping with the ambience on board.

The boat is equipped with all the latest cutting edge technology and offers its passengers both comfort and security. Each cabin is equipped with en suite shower and WC, a flat screen television, hairdryer, safe, radio and individually controlled air-conditioning and heating. There is also a highly qualified and experienced crew of 30. 

This new jewel in the CroisiEurope crown will join the Gironde Estuary and the Garonne and Dordogne rivers to offer cruises lasting from five to eight nights.
