Barge Cruises in France & Europe, Sorted By Individual Price, Per Person, Based on Double Occupancy


The listing of 2018 season barge cruises, below, is sorted by price per person, based on double occupancy, for all barges that offer individual cabin bookings. The listing is grouped by price ranges, from lowest to highest, starting from the lowest price for individual cabin bookings for each barge, which is typically a "value season" or similar low-season rate, and will also be the price for the lowest cost cabin if there are different prices that apply to cabins aboard that barge. For single occupancy, a single supplement applies to most barge cruises. ("Charter only" barges are listed at the end.)
