February through June 2012 - Paradise Connections :

Hotel Barging Cruises on the European Waterways with Paradise Connections
Go Barging This Year

It's the middle of June!  How did that happen???

Musicians aboard the French barge Roi Soleil
The 2012 hotel barging season is off to a great start. The Dutch tulip cruises have finished and those barges are repositioning for barging trips in France.

We have some very good special offers right now. Quite a few barges are offering nice discounts to fill in some of their remaining open weeks for the 2012 season. That, along with the favorable US dollar/euro exchange rate, should make it a no-brainer if you are still on the fence about a European barging vacation this year.

Come and explore the European waterways aboard a quality, luxury, all inclusive, crewed boutique hotel barge.

Visit our website to view barges in France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Holland / Belgium, Italy, Germany / Luxembourg
