April 23, 2014 Cruise Deals No Comments Email Email

European Waterways, Europe’s largest luxury hotel barge cruising company, are welcoming the new season with a wide selection of deals saving guests up to €6,000 for full boat charters and €1,000 off per cabin.

The 2014 season offers an exceptional variety of itineraries that will immerse guests in the colorful Spring scenery, cuisine and cultural heritage of some of Europe’s most popular regions.

Guests are treated to views of the picturesque windmills and famous tulips of Holland; the unique, half-timbered architecture of the Alsace region of France; and the wines of Burgundy in the heart of France.

“With the warm weather finally here and the landscape coming to life, travellers from all over the world are being drawn to Europe,” said Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways. eGlobal Media-ÃÇÁ

“Our wide range of cruises allow them to take full advantage of the beautiful weather and travel the many scenic waterways, all in total comfort. And we’re making Spring even more attractive with a wide range of cabin and whole boat charter specials.”

Panache – Windmills and Wine

From now and throughout May, cruising aboard the luxurious 12-passenger barge Panache, travellers will experience the culture, architecture, and beauty of Holland. Guided by European Waterways’ highly professional and experienced crew, guests can visit the famous Keukenhof Gardens, the Gouda cheese markets and the Aalsmeer flower auction – where up to 20 million flowers are sold daily.

In June, Panache will be repositioned in the Alsace region of France, where guests will enjoy a wonderful and unique mix of French and German cultures, cuisine, architecture, and fine wines. With a large sun deck, a spa pool, and bicycles to ride along the Alsace towpaths, Panache offers passengers a chance to explore historic sites and really experience the region. Highlights include a visit to the Rene Lalique glass collection and Strasbourg’s gothic Cathedral, as well as a chance to see the unique Arzviller boat elevator, which transports the barge 450 feet up a mountainside.

This year, European Waterways is offering €5,000 ($7,500 AUD) off Panache’s full-boat charter price and €1,000 ($1,500 AUD) off per cabin on selected cruises in July and August.

L’Art de Vivre – Historic Cruises in Burgundy

With endless miles of vineyards, countless elegant châteaux, and quaint villages, a cruise on the 8 passenger L’Art de Vivre through Burgundy is a great way to see the geographical heart of France.

The L’Art de Vivre itinerary features a visit to the elegant Château de Bazoches, exploring the enchanting city of Auxerre and its magnificent cathedral, and a trip to the medieval village of Vezelay with its hilltop basilica.

There is still time for guests to enjoy up to €1,000 ($1,500 AUD) off per cabin for selected May cruises, as well as up to €6,000 ($9,000 AUD) off the full 8-passenger charter prices for selected cruises in May. Guests can also enjoy up to €3,000 ($4,500 AUD) off the full charter price for selected cruises in July and August, perfect for families or groups of friends.
