Our MS Bordeaux cruise ship
The river cruise ship MS Bordeaux is 78 metres long and 10 metres wide. A maximum of 96 people can stay in 49 cabins. In order for all guests to have a comfortable space, a maximum of 80 passengers are boarded during multi-day trips. Sailing is done under experienced management. The on-board personnel speak French, English and German. Customers come from all over Europe, the United States and other regions. The bicycle routes have been chosen so that you can enjoy the most beautiful wine-growing regions, cultural sites and tastings of great wines.
The ship has a very cosy atmosphere, with lots of wood and warm colors. Comfortable carpets characterize the family atmosphere of the riverboat, which is very different from modern floating hotels. It is in harmony with the beauty of the landscape.
The day begins with a breakfast buffet, including fruits, eggs, fruit juices, sausages, cheese, croissants, toasted bread… There are new dishes every day, and everyone can enjoy the buffet to prepare their lunch picnic.
The evening menus are freshly prepared in the French tradition and are accompanied by a large selection of wines.
