Loire Princesse Overview

In 2015, CroisiEurope will debut a new generation paddleboat on the Loire, which will also be the first-ever overnight cruise vessel on the river.

Scheduled to launch in April 2015, 295-foot Loire Princesse will sail from Nantes on five- to seven-night itineraries. The ship has been designed for shallow waters with a small paddle wheel on the side that will help propel the vessel (as opposed to the large wheels on the sterns of traditional paddle steamers).

The 96-passenger ship will have 48 cabins. All staterooms on the upper deck will have balconies measuring 10 feet by 4 feet. Standard cabin amenities will include plasma-screen TVs, hair dryers, minibars, safes and air-conditioning. There will also be Wi-Fi access.

The main restaurant will accommodate passengers for single-service dining. CroisiEurope places a lot of emphasis on its French heritage, and meals onboard will inspired by French culinary traditions. Other public areas include a sun deck and a panoramic lounge with a bar and dance floor.
