Cruise Lines - European Waterways

European Waterway Cruises

The luxury hotel barges of European Waterways cruise the inland waterways of nine European countries, along canals, rivers, lakes and lochs, showing its passengers the heart of Europe from the inside.

With over 30 years experience of designing, building, owning and operating its fleet of luxury hotel barges, European Waterways has gradually refined its barge cruise holidays into unique travel experiences.

On the 7 day/6 night all-inclusive cruises, these floating boutique hotels glide gently along while passengers relax and enjoy gourmet cuisine, fine wines and the company of fellow passengers. There are guided tours to castles, chateaux, vineyards, markets and other places of real interest along the way.

One of the European Waterways barges, Anjodi, even achieved 'film star' status following her many appearances during the TV Series “French Odyssey”, when she carried chef Rick Stein on a voyage of culinary discovery through Southern France.
