European Waterways, the largest luxury hotel barge cruising company in Europe, has revealed that its 2016/17 brochure is now available and being mailed out to partner agents.
The brochure highlights all of the countries the company’s 17 vessels cruise throughout France, Italy, Holland and the British Isles.
Enlarged to 80 pages, the brochure includes new double-page photographs, some taken from the air, that convey the ‘hotel barging experience’ and detailed maps of the cruising routes and daily itineraries.
The brochure will also feature the new hotel barge, Finesse, which will commence cruising the scenic River Saône and Canal du Centre in southern Burgundy from May 2016. Finesse will offer accommodation for up to 8 passengers in 4 spacious twin or double-bed suites, each air-conditioned and with shower-rooms.
European Waterways’ Managing Director, Derek Banks, says for travel agents looking to book their clients on one of these unique and memorable cruises, the new brochure effectively conveys the serenity and beauty of the charming canals, villages and regional cultural attractions found along the company’s many routes in some of Europe’s most beautiful areas.
“We’re very proud of the new brochure. It provides travel agents with a detailed look into the unique and intimate qualities of hotel barging that differentiate it from larger-vessel river cruising on Europe’s main arteries,” says Banks.
