Our group embarkation was a breeze granted the barge only holds 22 passengers! The staff was very friendly and accommodating to the entire group. I sailed with 11 others. Here is what you can expect: - Intimate, small boutique feel barge. Brand new and stylish. Ideal for family reunions and girlfriend getaways. - Great food - locally sourced and cooked daily. Our chef was just fantastic. - Cabins are very small, but it's a barge cruise so you will only be in your cabin to change clothes - trust me, you want to be experiencing the canals outside. - Loved the open air top terrace - especially beautiful viewing the Eiffel Tower from the river with a bonus of the original Lady Liberty! - Wine will be served at lunch and dinner everyday. All liquor included which we loved! - Staff is funny and looks for ways to entertain their guests and engage them in local culture and flavor. - We loved experiencing the canal locks - definitely a sight to see and experience first hand up close and personal. We are experienced cruisers and highly recommend adding the 3 night Paris Itinerary to your travels in France!

Cabin Review

Cabin 101
Small, but functional cabin. Everything in it is brand new. Has clever storage above the beds. Bathroom is comfortable. Every cabin has a view of the river.
It's very nice, but not for people who like to spend time in their cabins.
