What Our Clients Say About Us ...

"The service from Special Places Travel was also fantastic! You guys thought of every detail and had everything set up so that there were no glitches in the trip. Having never traveled to Europe, we were a little anxious, but you made it a piece of cake."
J.K., Michigan

"Excellent service in every way: Communication, timely and complete receipt of documents, insurance recommendation, even extra tidbits of general travel info that we found others who booked through someone else had not been given)"
D.G., North Carolina

"Your services were first class. You answered every one of our questions fully and promptly. We took a lot of comfort and confidence from that. In the pre-booking stages, you were enormously helpful to me in sorting through the various alternatives, and providing objective criteria for evaluation."
C.H., Washington, DC

"The trip ranks in our top five. My wife would say the best trip ever. Thanks so much for all your personal recommendations and for your in-depth knowledge of the hotels, the local scene and of course the barges. We had a great time!"
M.V., Illinois



ABOUT HOTEL BARGES AND BARGE CRUISES ...
  • Long ago, they were working barges (peniche, in French), carrying coal, grain and other cargo, but have now been been transformed into elegant floating hotels ... and the vacation experience of a lifetime!
  • Cruise Dates and Length: Hotel barges typically cruise for seven days and six nights from late March to early November (the Magna Carta in England can cruise all year). Most start on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. A few barges offer half week cruises. Each day barges typically cruise for several hours and also offer a guided excursion to points of interest near the cruise route.
  • Cost: You can charter a barge for friends, families, groups, OR book individual cabins on most barges. Charters are a fantastic way to celebrate friendships, family reunions, and other special occasions and can be tailored to your interests. Or you can book an individual cabin and share in the adventure with other passengers -- many passengers have found friendships for life aboard a barge cruise! All rates are in US Dollars and range from just under $3,000 to $8,000 per person, based on double occupancy. (The main differences are sizes and elegance of cabins and public space aboard the barge.) For single occupancy there is usually a single supplement -- only the Luciole and Caprice have a single cabin with no single supplement.
  • Category: Categories primarily relate to the amount of on-board cabin space, with "Ultra Deluxe" offering the most spacious cabins -- typically 160 square feet or more -- and a very high level of overall elegance in decor and appointments throughout the barge. "Deluxe" barges typically have cabins of 120 square feet or more, and "First Class" barges typically offer cabins that are from 70 to about 100 square feet.
  • What's included and not included: Barge cruises are typically ALL-INCLUSIVE: your cabin with private bath, all meals, wines, open bar, escorted side excursions and transfers from a major city to the barge and return, unless otherwise noted. A few barges offer half-board as an option instead of full-board. Airfare, transfers to the barge pickup point and return and crew gratuity are not included. In France, Paris transfers are included where noted, below. Otherwise a direct train can take you to the rail station to meet the barge crew to start your cruise. In England, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Holland, and Italy, transfers are included from a major city near the cruise route.
  • About the barges and cruise routes: The barges on this website carry from 4 to 21 passengers. Most barges are 16.5 feet wide, and 80 to 128 feet long. All of the barges in France included below are air-conditioned. The Scottish Highlander and Shannon Princess are not air-conditioned. In France, barges primarily cruise in Burgundy, Alsace, Normandy, Champagne, and the South of France (Provence and the Canal du Midi). We think that the Nivernais and Briare Canals in the Burgundy region, and the Canal du Midi in the South of France are particularly beautiful, but all cruise routes offer something special. The barges in England, Scotland, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Germany, and Italy cruise through beautiful regions unique to each country.
WHAT MAKES A HOTEL BARGE CRUISE SO SPECIAL ...
  • The outstanding cuisine and carefully selected wines and cheeses to accompany meals aboard the barge.
  • The beauty and tranquility of the canals and rivers, with the chance to bike and walk along the canal or waterway.
  • The pampering and attention from enthusiastic crewmembers, and the luxury of having them provide individualized, personal, guided tours of special places along the way.

  • Charter prices apply to "whole boat" charter, with the maximum number of guests. Contact us by phone or email for special rates for chartering with fewer than the maximum number of passengers.
  • "Per Person" prices are based on double occupancy. (For most barges, a single supplement applies; see exceptions below).
  • "Value" and "Regular" Season Prices. Where a range is given, the lower price applies to the "value" season and/or the lower cost cabin for the few barges where there are price differences among cabins, and the higher price applies to the "regular season" and/or to the higher priced cabin. Value season prices are lower than regular season prices. Value season varies by barge, but typically applies to the first three weeks in April and the last two weeks in October through November. Some barges also have a lower cost value season (or "mid season") in July and August.
