Specials From European Waterways

European Waterways has set sail with a Black Friday special that features 30% off private whole barge charters on three of its most popular cruises in France for 2021.

The special is valid when booked between Nov. 27 through Dec. 4, 2020.

Cruises are all-inclusive and include all gourmet meals, wine and liquor onboard, private wine tasting excursions and guided tours, and onboard amenities such as deck-top spa pools, and bicycles for pedaling along the level towpaths or exploring nearby villages.

Among eligible cruises for the Black Friday special are the April 11 and May 2, 2021 departures of the 8-passenger Anjodi hotel barge, a founding member of the company’s fleet. Cruising the Canal du Midi, Anjodi features a classic Dutch design and all modern conveniences.  With 30% off, charters start at just $24,850, a saving of $10,650 off the $35,500 price.

The April 25 and May 9, 2021 departures of the 8-passenger Renaissance are also eligible for the Black Friday special.  Ultra-deluxe Renaissance cruises the Upper Loire and Western Burgundy regions along the Canal de Briare, France’s oldest canal.  With 30% off, charters are just $42,700, a saving of $18,300 off the $61,000 price.

The third eligible vessel is La Belle Epoque. Hosting up to 12 passengers and cruising Northern Burgundy, it is offering 30% off on its April 25 and May 9, 2021 departures.  Charters are just $49,350 for these dates, a saving of $21,150 off the $70,500 price.

Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways, said: “We are seeing increasing interest from multi-generational families and small groups who are looking to reconnect after months of separation due to government ‘stay-at-home’ policies. Hotel barges offer the perfect ‘travel bubbles,’ since guests can charter the entire vessel for the whole week.”
