Do you want delicious French food, stunning landscapes, exciting local festivals, fun activities and a bit of art, history and culture from your French holiday? Then a CroisiEurope river or canal cruise could be the perfect holiday for you

Local knowledge, unrivalled expertise

It goes without saying that as a French company, nobody knows France better than river cruise giant CroisiEurope; we at CroisiEurope are passionate about bringing authentic ‘savoir vivre’ experience to guests. A pioneer in many regions, CroisiEurope was established 40 years ago, was the first company to offer cruises on the Gironde and Garonne rivers, the first river cruise company to moor right in the heart of picturesque Honfleur and its unique paddle wheel ship is the only hotel ship that can sail the challenging river Loire.

Cutting edge cuisine

Food, food, glorious French food. France is, of course, inseparable from its famed gastronomical traditions and CroisiEurope is proud to provide guests the chance to dine on French specialities. No proper French meal is complete without a few glasses of ‘vin’ and with drinks included in the price, guests can choose daily from a selection of white, red and rosé wines, regionally adjusted to each cruise’s itinerary.

Art, history and culture

CroisiEurope has lots to offer to history buffs and art lovers; from the French revolution to Napoleon and the two world wars, and historical sites are often on the itinerary for visitors. Museums and art galleries are also a major pull for CroisiEurope’s guests.

Changing landscapes

France has everything, spectacular scenery, historic towns and chateaux. On a CroisiEurope cruise guests could see a variety of sun, sea and mountains; from sandy beaches, to snow covered mountains and vast expanses of countryside.

Festivals

Many CroisiEurope cruises coincide with popular local festivals. Why not have your Gironde cruise at the same time as Bordeaux’s annual wine festival in the last weekend of June. How about marvel at the Festival des Impressionists every July in Normandy on a Croisieurope Seine cruise? Art-lovers are drawn to Festival d’Avignon, which is one of the oldest and most famous theatre and performing arts festivals in the world, and combining this with a much sought after CroisiEurope Rhone cruise could enhance this visit.

City centre locations

CroisiEurope’s ships are moored right in the heart of each French city, be it Bordeaux, Avignon, Lyon or Strasbourg, which is one of the key attractions of cruising on French rivers.

Soft adventure / activity

Nature lovers will be smitten by CroisiEurope’s themed Cycle & Cruise or Walk & Cruise programs. Each region has its own unique charm, complete with fabulous food and wine, to make clients’ cruise-rambling or river side cycling holiday a fantastic experience.
