The CroisiEurope Experience

Since a cruise is not just an ordinary trip, we would like to present to you our history, our know-how and the CroisiEurope difference! Embarking on a cruise with CroisiEurope is a great experience that will leave you with unforgettable memories!

  • A French independent family business for 45 years

Since 1976 and throughout the years, we have established ourselves as the European leader in river cruises and specialized in intimate-sized cruises on rivers, canals and seas. This unique positioning, as well as the family spirit and the entrepreneurial culture of the company are strong values that we promote and share with our teams and our passengers.


  • Innovation, the core of our business

Our constant innovation in the construction of our ships, allowed us to be a pioneer on many rivers in Europe (Gironde, Loire, Pô, Elbe) and in the world (Cambodia / Vietnam, Southern Africa).

We establish precise specifications for the construction of ships and we strive to take into account the characteristics of the waterways, the expectations of our passengers and new environmental issues. Our fleet is expanded and modernized every year allowing us to offer you innovative itineraries and cruise programs. New products are scheduled each year, as we are committed to help you discover more and more destinations and must-see places, authentic or unusual.

  • Intimate-sized ships

Our fleet of 55 ships with 2 and 3 decks accommodate only 16 to 200 passengers. Their size and cutting-edge technology allow them to sail exclusively on certain rivers and to moor in the heart of cities, as close as possible to places of interest. Our Standard and Premium category ships are modern, their design is stylish and their comfort is optimal. All are certified according to Bureau Veritas standards.

  • World-wide cruises : exclusive destinations

With cruises from 3 to 16 days, we offer the largest choice of destinations on the rivers, seas and canals of Europe, any time of year: the opportunity to discover the charm and the unique advantages that every season offers. Among these destinations, find unique itineraries in Southern Africa, on the Mekong, Elbe, Loire, Volga ...

  •  Gastronomy, acclaimed by our passengers


The fine French gastronomy on board is an asset of our company.

  • Choice of excursions

We offer an optional excursion program to enrich each itinerary. These are carefully selected, accessible to all, as close as possible to the cultures and traditions of the world. Choose between the “Classic” package which highlights the must-sees of the destination, combining culture, architecture and history, and the “Discovery” package which offers unusual tours, tastings of local products, helicopter tours and so much more!


  • Comfortable cabins


Upon boarding, you will be welcomed by the crew who will help you settle into your cabin. The advantage of cruising is that you will only unpack your suitcase once before you let yourself go to relax and travel!


An elegant setting, a warm atmosphere and quality bedding: our cabins are comfortable, functional, air-conditioned and all have an exterior panoramic view allowing you to fully enjoy the scenery. Some cabins have French balconies or private terraces. Our fleet of Premium ships offer additional comfort providing more space in the cabins.


  • Common spaces

The sun deck of each ship offers an exceptional panoramic view of the landscapes throughout your cruise. Sun loungers are available, and you can enjoy a swimming pool or jacuzzi on some ships to relax.


The lounge / bar is open at all times, a convivial place where you can meet your friends, participate in entertainment, themed evenings and shows. On board our 3-deck ships, the piano bar is the ideal space to enjoy a cocktail, choose a book from the library, listen to or play the piano.


Enjoy breakfast buffet-style in the restaurant between fixed times, and lunch and dinner in one sitting.


A gift shop sells a wide choice of generic products and a selection of souvenirs specific to the route taken as well as postcards that we will take care to send.


Whatever your needs may be, our teams are available to assist you at the ship’s reception desk  which is open daily, or at any time with the Purser, who is in charge of the smooth running of your cruise.

  • Taking care of our environment

Within our company as well as onboard our ships, we commit ourselves on a daily basis to a series of concrete actions.

Aware of the need to protect the planet and its resources, we invest in new technologies and offer sustainable and eco-friendly solutions.

All our ships are equipped with water-saving devices and treatment systems for water, used oil and waste, as well as “green engines” with the Green Ship Label and devices to save electricity while reducing CO2 emissions.

On the Seine, we have adopted gas-to-liquid fuel (GTL) on board our ships; this transition to a greener fuel will soon be available on other rivers.

At ports, we systematically connect to power

supply terminals whenever possible, and for our own docks we invest in these new installations.

We are also working to reduce noise pollution (electrical terminal, insulation and ventilation of machine rooms, etc.).

Nature is our most valuable asset, we respect it and we are continually reflecting on how we can expand our green efforts.
