Grand Victoria: Luxury Canal and River Cruise in France on the Canal de Bourgogne, Canal du Centre, and Saone River Cruise In France in Southern Burgundy On The Canal de Bourgogne, Canal du Centre, and Saone River Aboard The Deluxe Hotel-Barge GRAND VICTORIA


BARGE CRUISES: SEVEN DAYS/SIX NIGHTS
Special Places Travel Logo.  EMAIL: info@specialplacestravel.com or PHONE: 1-877-642-2743 (001.443.321.3614 outside US/Canada). NEW NAME FOR 2017! The 6-passenger Grand Victoria has been transformed by its new owners, Edward Anderson and and Cindy Unvericht, into an elegant luxury barge with three large 180 sq ft cabins with new ensuite bathrooms and stunning new decor and furnishings throughout. The cabins have king size or twin beds, Simmons Beautyrest Luxury mattresses, upholstered headboards, 800-thread count sheets, chenille damask comforters and Matelasse coverlets. Each cabin has a large flat screen TV as well as an Apple TV to stream free on demand movies. Huge windows in the salon and dining area allow natural light to flood in. Top quality sofas and chairs enhance the salon area, and the dining table easily seats 6 guests in comfort. The sundeck at the bow has a dining table for eight, large sun umbrellas, and reclining chairs. The sundeck at the stern adds another comfortable outdoor living space with elegant fireplaces that iluminate a soft glow as the sun sets over the Burgundy landscapes. There is also a 4-person spa pool for relaxing on board.

The Grand Victoria cruises in the famous Cote d'Or wine region of Southern Burgundy on the Burgundy Canal, Saone River and Canal du Centre, depending on the week selected. The area features a majestic landscape of rolling hills, beautiful chateaux, and picturesque vineyards. The all-inclusive itineraries are packed with adventure. Explore the vineyards of Clos de Vougeot in a WWII jeep. Use the onboard mountain bikes to explore the tow paths and small villages along the way. Lunches in Beaune and Dijon are also included.

We stayed on board the barge in April 2017 and spent time with the owners, Edward and Cindy, on one of their excursions. They remain passionate about providing an exceptional experience on board and we continue to be impressed by their transformation of the barge. There is a professional crew of six to provide whatever passengers need, even personal laundry service! This commitment to their guests includes being on board themselves and personally leading guests on tours around Burgundy. Itineraries are flexible depending on passengers' interests. Their aim is to provide an experience, not just a vacation, to ensure that their guests return home with a story to share.

Another unique feature of the Grand Victoria is that it welcomes any passenger's small dog weighing up to 40 pounds. No other pets are permitted. They are happy to provide a Grand Victoria dog bed, a pet welcome kit, and food bowls with a mat. Pets may not be left unattended in a guest cabin or on the barge during excursions. The owners have a friendly Lhaso Apso named Angus who stays in the crew quarters or on deck, whatever the guests prefer.
