1. Privacy and Seclusion on a Whole Barge Charter

How better to enjoy the very best of a destination on a post-lockdown escape, than in the comfort and seclusion of a private whole barge charter. From groups of friends to families in hopes of reconnecting and making up for a lost time during lockdown, we’re already seeing a huge interest in charter bookings in 2021. It’s not difficult to see why, with the perks of what feels like having your very own private floating villa, equipped with a personal crew and private chef.

2. Small-Group Cruises: Who Said Bigger is Better?

Our vessels accommodate between 6-20 passengers, with an average of around 10. This means you’re traveling with the same passengers throughout the week with an intimate, grown-up ‘house party’ ambience. And, by the end of it – we can almost guarantee you’ll have made new friends for life! From hygiene to haute cuisine, with our small-group cruises, you can expect the highest standard of service throughout.
