The feeling of gentle exploration characterises barge cruises. The warm atmosphere and excellent service provided by the English speaking crew combines to ensure a perfect inland cruising experience. All our featured barges are air-conditioned and boast wonderful sundecks and small spa pools.
Each cruise includes a comprehensive programme of excursions and visits. They are a blend of cultural, historical and general interest, which compliment the time spent drifting lazily along the waterways.

THE VESSELS
The vessels featured are some of the most comfortable available. All barges have outside facing cabins with en suite facilities, drawers and wardrobe space and opening portholes or windows. Each has spacious saloon and dining areas, central heating, air-conditioning or cooling and umbrella-shaded sun decks. Many have a small library, games and a music centre, while some carry bicycles for use on towpaths. Hotel barges are also available for exclusive charter by larger parties. Please note that children under the age of 12 years are not accepted unless it is a charter booking or a special family departure.

FOOD & DRINK
France is renowned for its food, and it is a point of pride that the food aboard our vessels can compete with some of the very best restaurants in each region. On board, the barges daily breakfast include fresh breads and pastries whilst lunches might be a delicious buffet of patés, charcuterie, salads, desserts, fruit and cheeses or a sumptuous picnic. Four or five course dinners are served each evening. Throughout the cruise you will sample fine wines, often from regional vineyards at both lunch and dinner.

Spring escapes with Abercrombie & Kent

The notion of a peak season is usually a function of weather and school holidays, often meaning an increase in hotel rates and airfares. However, at A&K we are big fans of the so-called 'shoulder' season. Here are a few great reasons to get packing this Spring.
