Luxury Barge Cruises on the Canals and Waterways of Europe ...

Join with Friends or Book a Cabin for Customized Excursions, Top Cuisine and Wines, a Memorable Week

Whether enjoying a barge cruise on Loch Ness in Scotland, or the canals of Holland, or the Thames in England, or down the Shannon River in Ireland, or the rural canals of France, or the Venetian Lagoons in Italy, the luxury hotel barge cruise experience is truly the most memorable way to travel. Many luxury hotel barges began service as working barges, but have now been magically transformed into luxurious floating hotels for 4 to 24 passengers, complete with amazing gourmet cuisine prepared by an on-board master chef, and a very attentive crew of three or four (and more on larger barges). A full week to enjoy life, fine wines, friends, and cuisine, and the best of all possible excursions.

There are a lot of choices, and we're here to help right when you first start your planning. We've been aboard nearly all of the hotel barges in Europe, and can advise you about the best barges, the differences between each of the regions, and the best way to get there. Just call us at 1-877-64-BARGE (1-877-642-2743) from U.S./Canada, or +1-443-321-3614 outside of the US, or email us at You may also contact us through our online inquiry form:
