CroisiEurope Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on CroisiEurope cruise ships?

The majority of CroisiEurope's clientele is European, with a large percentage of passengers being French. Many sailings also have a small number of North Americans, Australians and Brits. Most cruisers are over 50, but during the summer months, you can expect to see more families.

Do I have to dress up on a CroisiEurope cruise?

Not too much. Ships have a relaxed, continental atmosphere with no set dress code. By day passengers dress casually, with some keeping to similar apparel in the evening and others putting on smarter casual wear. The weekly gala dinner does see people dress it up, but never in formal wear.

Is everything free on CroisiEurope cruises?

No, but how inclusive the fares are depends on where you are booking from and which package you purchase. All fares cover meals, Wi-Fi and a selection of wine with lunch and dinner, as well as an open bar that includes all beverages, barring a small number of premium brands and Champagne. North Americans generally have shore excursions included in the cruise fare, as well, along with transfers. Europeans, on the other hand, can choose a fare with or without shore excursions included. Extra costs for everyone are gratuities and retail shop purchases.

What are CroisiEurope’s most popular activities?

Shore excursions are the no. 1 activity for CroisiEurope passengers who can choose from classic choices and "Discovery" options that offer out-of-the-ordinary experiences. Onboard, passengers enjoy a livelier atmosphere than many other riverboats, with quizzes, games, evening entertainment and late-night dancing.

Why go with CroisiEurope?

  • Affordable cruises
  • Unique itineraries not featured by other lines
  • French ambience and cuisine

Best for: French-speakers, Francophiles and budget-oriented cruisers

Not for: Anyone with an aversion to French culture and cuisine; picky eaters

Michaelangelo in Venice, New Year

I do speak some French and a high proportion of them were able to converse in English.Although I was the only English-speaking tourist on board, this was no real problem as the other cruisers were mainly French or Spanish, and at my table, Swiss.Read More

Actual Embarkation is Port de Pont-l'Evêque (Noyon)

This was a new route for this boat down the L'Oise canal and then the Oise River joining the Seine and into Paris for an wonderful tour of the historic city on the Seine at sunset.Each day we had a tour either in the morning or afternoon but the first tour was after dinner the first night to the cathedral in Noyon.Read More

review 90 days after no response from croisi

Nice 9 hours trip to Belgrade-Novi Sad was spoiled because it was no separate English-speaking guide, so beautiful tour guide (by the way, the best guide for all 10 days) must constantly speak French and English concurrently (very difficult to listen for such a long time).Best internet speed and AC were at library room, but AC was constantly leaking from the ceiling over their.Read More
