Charter-Only Luxury Hotel Barge "Absoluut2" Joins the European Waterways Fleet
The Deluxe 8-passenger Hotel Barge Cruises in Southern Burgundy Between Dijon and Vandenesse
New York (I-Newswire) August 15, 2013 - European Waterways, Europe's largest luxury hotel barge cruising company, is proud to announce the latest addition to its fleet, Absoluut2, a charter-only, deluxe 8-passenger hotel barge that cruises in Southern Burgundy between Dijon and Vandenesse. Absoluut2 was designed to exacting standards for cruising the inland waterways and canals of Europe, and is perfect for families, groups of friends, or colleagues interested in the privacy of a whole-boat charter.
"We are delighted to have Absoluut2 join our fleet of luxury hotel barges. Catering exclusively to those who want to 'book a boat' for themselves, Absoluut2 provides a personalized experience where families and other groups can tailor a cruise to their own needs and interests," said Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways. "While cruising through the beautiful French countryside aboard their own private floating hotel, groups on Absoluut2 will explore distinctive vineyards, stroll through vibrant local markets and medieval villages, and take leisurely bike rides along the canal's scenic tow paths."
Absoluut2 features a comfortable saloon and dining area, two sun decks, and a spa pool ideal for relaxing in, while enjoying the picturesque countryside of Burgundy. The spacious accommodations include four deluxe air-conditioned cabins-two junior suites and two staterooms-which can be configured as either double or twin beds. The highly professional crew of four is comprised of a master chef, tour guide and hostess, led by a knowledgeable and experienced captain. As with all of European Waterways cruises, the charters aboard Absoluut2 are all-inclusive of gourmet meals, fine wines, an open bar, all excursions and transfers, plus a bicycle onboard for every passenger.
Cruise highlights include fascinating tours of Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy, and Dijon, home to the former Ducal Palace and the Cathedral of Saint Benign. Guests will also visit the medieval village of Chƒ¢teauneuf-en-Auxois, the Chƒ¢teau de Commarin, and will enjoy a private wine tour and tasting at the renowned Chƒ¢teau de Meursault.

About European Waterways
The hotel barging experience is different from large vessel river cruising. It offers a slower paced, "gentle voyage of discovery" along the more intimate canals and waterways of Europe, allowing a small number of guests to become more fully immersed in the culture, history and gastronomy of the region. European Waterways is Europe's largest all-inclusive luxury hotel barging operator, offering vacations in nine countries and carrying over 2,000 passengers a year. Founded nearly 40 years ago, they own, operate and market a private fleet of luxury barges with cruises in France, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, England, Germany, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. Pioneers in hotel barging, they were the first company to operate a hotel barge on the Upper Nivernais in Burgundy, and the "real" Loire Valley. They are also the only cruise company offering barge cruises in Scotland and in the Venetian lagoon and River Po valley.
