The MS Niagara is a very cosy barge with an authentically French ‘boaty’ atmosphere on board. She offers groups of up to 6 guests accommodation in three spacious, light suites, each with opening windows and private bathroom. The panoramic and unique saloon also houses the helm, so passengers will have a close-up view of all nautical activities carried out by the international-speaking crew, and are sometimes invited to get involved—under the close eye of the Captain of course! In addition to the boaty saloon, the on-board heated swimming pool is another real highlight of this exceptional barge.
The MS Niagara is the ‘sister ship’ of ‘La Reine Pedauque’, and together they cruise the same gentle route along the Burgundy canal. It is rural and you will meander gently from village to village. The lush green landscape and gentle villages on this route cannot fail to enchant you.
With a full crew to cater for your needs, you can lie back in a deckchair on the sundeck and watch the landscape glide by, cycle along the towpath or take an excursion inland – the ONLY way to enjoy Burgundy!
In 2016 the M.S.Niagara will be offering both 6 night cruises as well as 3 night 'mini' cruises, all on a 'half-board' basis.
