Ship Overview

2010 was the year when this gorgeous riverboat came back to life after 9 years of uninterrupted Seine cruises. The result is one that CroisiEurope has nothing but to be proud of. Each of the 78 cabins it is provided with, has large windows and a balanced furniture setting, which does nothing but to take its passengers to an instant state of calm and recreation. Last, but not least, the different tones of brown and green are completing this visual journey, contributing heavily to

  • Lounge bar with a dancefloor
  • Dining room
  • Book shop
  • Souvenir boutique
  • Spacious sundeck with chairs
  • 220V electricity
  • Air-conditioning
  • Central heating
  • Radar
  • Radiophone
  • Wifi available in exchange for a fee
  • Upper deck: 28 cabins (26 twin cabins, 2 cabins for passengers with reduced mobility)
  • Main deck: 50 cabins (1 suite, 1 single, 44 twin cabins, 4 triples)

    Dear Mrs Cook, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is true some members of the crew are Hungarians who speak little English. However our Purser and host/hostess speak English and are available at any time to help you. We indeed offer one meal alternative. However, if you don't like something or follow a special diet, it can be brought to the purser's attention and the Chef will offer an alternative. The servers do their best to quickly bring the food to the table. As it is the case on all of our ships, they change the service’s order so it is not always the same clients that are served first/last. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department

    Dear Mr. Davis, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are really glad to read you had such a great time on board our ship. We'll make sure to let Lucy know about your lovely review. It is true we can't always let the guests board early on the first day as the crew is still busy getting the ship ready for the cruise (there was probably a disembarkation the same morning). We hope we'll be able to welcome you again soon on board one of our ships. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department

    Dear Mr. Carter, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are glad to read you overall enjoyed your cruise. It is true we offer one choice of meal. However, our cruise director and Chef are at disposal to offer alternatives. We take note of your comment on the vegetables.

    We are sorry to read about your experience on board our ship. We make a strong point to care for every passenger the same. Please be assured we'll make sure such a situation does not happen again. This ship was indeed refurbished in 2007. We've taken good note of your remarks and will pass them on to the appropriate persons. Your remark on the breakfast buffet is quite surprising as the staff has to replace the food until 9am. We are sorry if that was not the case during your stay. We hope you'll still choose to cruise with us in the future to enjoy the usual quality of our services. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department
