Built in 1923, M.S Niagara is a Dutch Luxe-motor barge.  After 2 years of skilled work and craftsmanship the barge was re-launched at Saint Jean De Losne in Burgundy. Now equipped with air-conditioning, a heated swimming pool, all the equipment and fittings are installed to provide you with a very comfortable special vacation cruise.

MS Niagra hotel barge

Exploring the waterways of Burgundy and France on board "MS Niagara" is an unforgettable adventure.

The traditionally built motor yacht offers a travel adventure, back in time and an insight into France as it should be seen.

Everyday you will be pampered from morning to evening. The barge cruises into the late afternoon, taking you through the heart Burgundy's countryside and picturesque villages, famous for their cultural history and art.

Everyday hectic life will rapidly disappear and is replaced by the rhythm of the canal locks.

That's the French way of life.

The air-conditioned main deck with its comfortable wheel house offers you an ideal occasion to assist the Captain in all manoeuvres. Sumptuous suites and bathrooms await a maximum of 6 passengers. On the upper level, you will appreciate the spacious sun-deck with Swimming pool and Jet-stream - depending on your desires; it can be warmed up to 85 °F or more. Just relax and enjoy the comfort of this casual cruise. Mountainbikes are always onboard and ready to go, for casual rides along the tow-path or cross country raids.

The day begins with a hearty French breakfast, then a traditional Burgundy brunch menu, accompanied with selected wines. During the calm afternoon coffee, tea and pastries are served in the salon. Every detail of your cruise is affectionately prepared by your first class crew who are also English speaking.

The staff will always be attending to your needs in a first class friendly style with genuine hospitality.

At the end of each day's cruise, the passengers can discover and visit the lovely country and heartly people of France on their own (or optional with our tourguide) in an air-conditioned van. Learn the "savoir vivre" of Burgundy, with its famous wines, Roman art, feudal castles and abbeys.

When returning to your barge, happy and content the day's events, there is plenty of time for a drink before you discover new local restaurants, as this cruise is only bookable with half pension. Beside delicious dishes and noble wines you also get to learn the many sorts of regional cheese. A wonderful opportunity to become not only a connoisseur of French specialities and grand Burgundy wines, but also an adept in French cheese art. The delightful evening can then close with drinks at the open bar or pool together with fellow passengers and new friends.
