This May, French family-run river cruise company CroisiEurope will launch MS Cyrano de Bergerac which will travel from Strasbourg to Bordeaux to join the MS Princesse d’Aquitaine. The inaugural voyage will be on Friday 17th May at the Quai des Chartrons.

MS Cyrano de Bergerac will cruise on the Gironde Estuary, and the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.

The cruise liner will accommodate 180 passengers in cabins located on three decks and the attractive restaurant is large enough to serve all passengers in a single sitting.

A spacious lounge bar with a dance floor in the centre offers passengers an ideal area to relax and socialise. There is also a Pianorama Bar which is smaller and cosier than the main lounge bar.

Each cabin is equipped with en suite shower and WC, a flat screen television, hairdryer, safe, radio and individually controlled air-conditioning and heating.

The vessel has been completely equipped, furnished and decorated at the River Station in Strasbourg, home to the company’s headquarters.

This new jewel in the CroisiEurope crown will join the Gironde Estuary and the Garonne and Dordogne rivers to offer cruises lasting from five to eight nights.
