Savoir Faire Overview

The 12-person Savoir Faire is a converted Dutch cargo barge that was later used as landing vessel during World War 2. It was changed into a hotel barge in 1979. Savoir Faire cruises the rivers and waterways of Holland, Belgium and France.

Here's what you can expect on a Savoir Faire barge cruise:

There are six cabins onboard. Five are 116 square feet and include a shower-only bathroom, writing desk and chair, dual wardrobes, large porthole. The sixth is 142 square feet and features a large shower-only bathroom, two large portholes, a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a side table with drawer. All cabins are supplied with hair dryer, soap, toiletries and towels.

Cruises include all French meals with wine (and French cheese board), all shore excursions, an open bar and bikes for passenger use. Optional excursions, including hot air balloon rides and golf, are extra.

Public spaces include a large saloon, a cocktail lounge with stereo system, and a few sun deck areas with armchairs. The ship features air conditioning throughout.

The six-person crew is made up of a captain, chef, upper deck hostess, lower deck steward, tour guide and deck hand.
