If a river cruise is on your summer wish list this year, CroisiEurope, a family-owned French river cruise company, offers their new Family Club cruises.
Aimed to make family vacation travel a bit less stressful and a lot more immersive, CroisiEurope’s new Family Club concept allows children 16 and under to cruise for free on three of CroisiEurope’s four special European family cruises. On the remaining cruise itinerary, the child rate is discounted.
How it works
How does a free cabin sound? When two parents travel with two children that are over five years old, CroisiEurope will give them a complimentary cabin close to their parents.
Two parents with one child and the child stays in their parents cabin. A single parent with one child will get the single supplement waived providing the second passenger is 16 years or younger.
Dining and Activities
Meals are adapted for the palates of younger guests. Activities will be geared for children, too. Bike tours and hiking excursions with parents are included as well as onboard supervised games and group activities just for the kids.
For 2017, CroisiEurope has their Family Club offered on four European itineraries.
