Leading Specialists in European Barge Cruises

Category: First Class

All of our barges offer the same exceptional standard of cuisine, wine, excursions and service – so no matter what category of barge you choose, you can rest assured you will be receiving the same outstanding cruise experience!

As a guideline, on a First Class category barge you may expect to find comfortable cabins ranging from 91 – 115 sq. feet, and relatively small, though very well designed and equipped bathrooms. Some First Class barges do not have a jacuzzi on deck and will have cosy salon and dining areas with attractive decoration. Our First Class barges are very charming and offer a delightful barge cruise holiday.

Good food and wine is a way of life in France and nowhere more so than in Gascony. The Rosa is an old Dutch “Clipper” barge on which guests can experience some out-of-the-way locations and traditional French way of life.

The superb Scottish Highlander offers an exceptional barging holiday with the feel of a Scottish country home, exquisite scenery and fascinating history. Cruise through magical Loch Ness and Cawdor Castle on this magical cruise!
