European Waterways, the luxury hotel barge cruising company, reports that a growing number of its charters are being booked by multi-generational groups celebrating special anniversaries, birthdays, and other milestones.
The company attributes this popularity to the intimate atmosphere, privacy, and a tailor-made itinerary for all ages. Whole-boat charters also offer cost savings over individual cabin prices.
Travel agents booking charters can earn 10% commission.
“Burgundy and the Canal du Midi are among the most popular destinations for multi-generational holidays on our hotel barges,” said Derek Banks, managing director, European Waterways.
“However, across all our destinations each cruise offers its own, unique rewards. We’ll be happy to work with interested groups to find the best fit for them.
“With multi-generational charters a growing market, European Waterways ensures that our cruises offer diverse itineraries to satisfy the interests of everyone in a group of friends, or family, young or old,” said Banks.
“Of course, many people know Burgundy for its wine and gastronomic offerings, but it is also a truly diverse destination, whatever your age or interests,” says Banks.
