With CroisiEurope, you’ll cruise the rivers of Europe on board your own French restaurant. Experience an authentic holiday sailing from city to city, our ship will be your floating hotel: small enough to moor at a town port, but large enough to provide you with every amenity

Founded in 1976, CroisiEurope is a family-owned company and pioneer in river cruising in Europe. Operating 50 ships, CroisiEurope river cruises take you on the Rhine and the Moselle, the Danube, the Seine, the Garonne, Gironde and Dordogne around the Bordeaux region and its wine country, and the Rhône and Saône. Southern Europe is also among the most successful destinations offered by Europe’s leading company, with cruises on the Douro in Portugal, the Guadiana and Guadalquivir in Spain, and the Po River in Italy. CroisiEurope also launched cruises on the Loire and the Elbe on board unique paddle wheel ships, and operates six charming hotel barges to experience gliding along the tranquil waters of Champagne, Provence, the Loire, Burgundy and Alsace.

In April 2017, the MS Miguel Torga started to sail the Douro River in Portugal, sailing from Porto and stopping in Regua, Vega de Terron, Ferradosa and Pinhão. This three-deck ship boasts a pool, contemporary interior design and 66 cabins that accommodate 132 passengers. Hosting eight-day cruises, it joined CroisiEurope’s four other ships on the ‘Golden River’.
