Paddle Wheelers to Return to European Rivers

For the first time in over 100 years a sleek paddle wheel vessel will return to the rivers of France. The shallow waters of the Loire have kept larger vessels from being able to navigate the river, so CroisiEurope USA has unveiled plans for a new paddle wheeler with overnight cabins to give its customers access to one of the most beautiful regions in France.

Loire Princesse

Nanuet, NY (PRWEB) April 14, 2014

The first riverboat with overnight cabins to sail the shallow waters of the Loire, the MS Loire Princesse, is getting poised to make its debut. CroisiEurope USA unveiled plans to build a sleek, new paddle wheeler to navigate these waters of the Loire River. The MS Loire Princesse will set sail from Nantes, France and passengers can choose to enjoy a leisurely cruise from 6 to 8 days.

This new paddle wheeler requires less draft - the minimum depth of water a ship or boat can safely navigate - than typical riverboats, making this an exciting new opportunity for travelers who wish to visit the beautiful Loire Valley onboard a new luxury river boat.

The Loire river is the largest river in France and has an abundance of UNESCO heritage sites along its banks. Unmatched in charm, the Loire Valley has been called "the garden of France," with over 1000 chateaux, each with distinct architectural design from the early Medieval period to the late Renaissance period. In addition to the beautiful chateaux, the Loire boasts charming villages, rolling greens, and enchanted vineyards.

A river cruise on the Loire river is a perfect venue for those travelers in search of an abundance of culture and originality.

Euro River Cruises is a pioneer in the river cruise business and has been representing European river cruise companies in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Ireland for 15 years.
