Jeanine Barge Cruising Alsace France

Europeanbarging Presents New Barges in France for 2014

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - May 1st, 2014 - For many years Europeans have enjoyed the relaxing vacation that a canal cruise offers. Now more Americans are making the trip across the Atlantic to enjoy the intimate waterways and local color that barge cruises offer. France is the most popular destination. As of this year, Europeanbarging has added three new French barges to those they already represent.

The new barges are sister ships to the Jeanine which came out in 2013. The Jeanine will move from Alsace to Burgundy France, and the Madeleine will take over the Alsace Lorraine itinerary. The Anne Marie will cruise the Provence region between Avignon and Sete. The fourth barge, the Raymonde, will cruise in Champagne, France. For more information about these cruises, please visit

All the barges accommodate 24 passengers and include local excursions, regional wines served with meals and an open bar. There are also bicycles on board for independent cycling. Rates regularly run between $2,658 and $2,895 per person, although there is a special running during 2014.

There is an extensive waterway network across the country of France, covering nearly 5,000 miles. Much of that consists of canals that were constructed centuries ago for trade and transport. The barges of today explore different regions of the country in a slow, intimate, and relaxed fashion. These cruises offer the convenience of an all-inclusive vacation and customized adventure.

In addition to adding the new barges and itineraries, Europeanbarges has announced special rates for this inaugural year:
