NEW YORK — Travelling during high season doesn’t mean you have to break the bank, especially now that European Waterways is offering summer savings on cabins and full boat charters throughout Europe.
Among the eligible vessels that are part of the promotion are Anjodi, which cruises the Canal du Midi in southern France, and Panache, which cruises in Alsace and Lorraine. Both of these vessels are offering $2,500 off per cabin on select departures throughout the summer.
Full-boat charter specials are also available, with Anjodi offering $8,000 off and Panache offering $12,000 off. Cabin specials are based on double occupancy and all specials must be booked by June 20, 2016 to qualify.
The eight-passenger Anjodi hotel barge has had a facelift for 2016, with cabins and saloon skillfully refurbished. Excursion highlights include a private wine tasting at the 14th-century Chateau de Perdiguier, a tour of Carcassone and a visit to Pezenas.
The 12-passenger Panache recently remodeled its bar area, redecorated its cabins and refreshed its dining and saloon areas with new furnishings. Excursion highlights include exploring the Alsace Wine Route and a visit to Strasbourg’s magnificent Gothic cathedral.
