When river cruising was a privilege for the wealthy, CroisiEurope developed an affordable cruising concept offering the best value in river cruises at great prices and appealing to every traveler. Operating 50 company-owned ships and five chartered vessels, the CroisiEurope river cruise company is proud to be the greatest river ship owner in Europe. Although the Rhine and its tributaries and the Danube remain the major river cruise destinations in Europe, CroisiEurope knows how to develop creative itineraries that appeal to everyone. But they also know it is important to expand their cruises to unique destinations. These include the Seine and the Rhône, of course, but also the Tisza in Hungary, the Guadalquivir in Spain, the Douro in Portugal, the Dordogne, and the Garonne in Bordeaux.

Languages on Board
The official languages on board our ships are French and English.
Our team members and tour guides speak English fluently. They also master major European languages, such as German, Italian and Spanish.

Indeed, CroisiEurope has more than 19 different nationalities among its employees (French, Germans, Austrians, Hungarians, Spaniards, Italians, Portuguese, Filipinos ...) Guests are welcomed and cared for from the world over.

On board, information and warnings are communicated in French and in English. They may also be advertised in another language, depending on the nationality of the passengers on board.

Activities and Entertainment
Many activities and entertainment are offered on board – and we encourage our guests to join in on the fun.
Before dinner, games and quizzes are hosted by our entertainers in the lounge bar.

On the sun deck, you can stroll alone, be with family or friends, sit comfortably in the sun loungers, or enjoy a drink while enjoying the passing landscapes. Want to keep fit? Gymnastics sessions are organized in the morning, and you can jog or walk the riverbanks during free time in port.

On some of our boats, in Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Mekong and Africa, the sun deck has a swimming pool.
The panoramic lounge bar, the library and the "pianorama-bar" (the latter 2 are available on some boats only), are refined and furnished with taste. It is nice place to spend quiet moments after returning from excursions for example.

Often, lectures on subjects related to the history and geography of the places visited, are offered in the lounge bar.
Some evenings, the dance floor of the lounge comes to life. Musical evenings, folk groups or singers, variety shows where the crew members reveal their hidden talents, are all chances to let loose after a day of touring!  And don’t forget the Gala evening – a farewell to your new friends. There’s no lack of fun to have on board, or memories to take with you!

Gala evening
The gala evening is a long-practiced tradition in the world of cruising. This is the night we like to dress up, although no formal dress code is enforced. The crew all in their dress uniform, are presented to the passengers who are invited have a pre-dinner drink with the captain in the company of the purser, and the head chef.
That evening, the chef serves a banquet paying a special tribute to the French gastronomy and know-how and experience of CroisiEurope in these matters. Dancing follows this gala dinner in the lounge bar.

Special Diets and Allergies​

Stopovers and Excursions​
Our boats crisscross the most beautiful rivers of Europe and the world and make stopovers in world famous cities, picturesque villages, and the remarkable sites of these countries. Many are UNESCO World Heritage listed. To make these cruises exceptional moments, CroisiEurope’ s approach is to propose new destinations each year.
Our passengers have the choice of activity. Our All-Inclusive rates include the excursion package of your choice: Classic Excursions which feature walking tours, sightseeing visits, and museum visits – the “Must See” sites in each port. Discovery Excursions are a bit more active, off-beat, or unique – imagine cycling the canals of Amsterdam, a Urban Hike to the top of a Cathedral, or helicopter rides above the Loire Valley. These are great for adventurers, or guests who are returning for a second time to a favorite city.
Some customers may prefer to go alone to discover the cities, to absorb the atmosphere, but thanks to the maps/plans available on board will be able to find the more precious landmarks at each stopover.
On foot or by bus, alone or accompanied by our coordinators, in "classic excursions" or "disovery excursions"... CroisiEurope is at your side to satisfy your curiosity.

Regarding dinners, cocktails and galas, guests tend to dress up a little more – like you would when dining in any nice restaurant. There are no strict guidelines, no requirements for suits or gowns.
Finally, on any excursion, when you visit places of worship, make sure to opt for an appropriate outfit, neither too light nor too undressed, so as not to be prohibited entry.

Tipping habits vary from country and culture. At CroisiEurope, they are collected once at the end of the stay and shared equitably between all members of the crew.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
