In 2017 CroisiEurope will be adding five new ships to their fleet as well as investing in its African tours by adding one new boat and two new lodges.
On the Douro…the MS Miguel Torga is an innovative, Premium class, three-deck ship with a pool, contemporary interior design and 66 cabins that will accommodate 132 passengers. Built at the Sambre and Meuse Shipyard in Namur, it will join CroisiEurope four other ships on the Douro River. Beginning in April 2017, it will offer eight-day cruises on the “Golden River” leaving from Porto and stopping in Regua, Vega de Terron, Ferradosa and Pinhão.
On the Mekong…the RV Indochine II is a high-class, colonial-style ship that will join CroisiEurope’s four existing vessels on the Mekong. Sixty passengers in 30 cabins will holiday in style thanks to the ship’s unique design and spacious private balconies. It will cruise both directions of the Mekong between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City.

They’ll become two of CroisiEurope’s top-rated Premium ships, in line with the latest generation ships. They will be rechristened the MS Symphonie II and the MS Douce France II and will cruise on the Danube and the Rhine respectively.
