La Nouvelle Etoile

Setting a new horizon for river barging, the luxurious 8-passenger La Nouvelle Etoile boasts sophisticated technology and state-of-the-art interiors. Equipped with internet access with flat-screen monitors, satellite television and a luxurious bathroom with an oversized shower, each of the four suites is specifically built to ensure guests' highest comfort. One of the suites is fully adapted to accommodate passengers with physical challenges. The barge’s attentive crew of five is comprised of an experienced captain, Master Chef, Tour Guide and two Stewardesses, all of whom will ensure you a truly memorable cruise.



Board this warm, inviting ship for an intimate cruise accommodating just 8 passengers. La Nouvelle Etoile’s two decks combine sophistication and elegance. Stay inside to enjoy the teak-lined dining area and salon, complete with a bar and piano, or step onto the deck for an open-air sun deck with lounge chairs and a hot tub.

La Nouvelle Etoile is wheel-chair accessible and all cabins come with high-tech services including individually controlled air conditioning, wireless internet and satellite TV.

While you relax and cruise through Europe’s small waterways, enjoy carefully selected and prepared meals. Regional specialties on the menu include Medallions of Veal with Girolles and Truffle Sauce, Breast of Duck with a Passion Fruit Glace and Crepes Suzette with Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. Lunch and dinner are served with an extensive wine menu, and the ship has an open bar. Complimenting local cuisines and wines, the cheese board includes Munster, Brie de Meaux, Fourme d'Ambert and Chaource.
