An exclusive collection of luxury hotel barge cruises. Specialising in slow paced cruise vacations on some of the most beautiful inland waterways in Europe, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the gastronomy, culture and history of the regions we pass through.

All our hotel barge cruises guarantee a fully-crewed luxury vessel that accommodates between just six and twenty passengers. These intimate, small groups allow us to create the atmosphere of a floating house party on board.

You may choose to charter a whole boat with family and friends, or join a small group of like-minded travellers on an individual cabin basis. We can also arrange a wide selection of themed barge cruises which will appeal to all types of interest groups, big or small, including golf, walking and wine appreciation themed cruises.

Every European Waterways six-night barge cruise includes all gourmet meals, regional wines, an open bar, local transfers and the use of barge facilities such as bicycles to explore the towpaths, a sundeck to laze on, or a spa pool to relax in. daily escorted excursions are also offered “off the beaten track” to wineries, castles, markets or to see craftsmen at work.
