Review of Belmond Napoleon barge

The 12-passenger Belmond Napoleon barge cruises on Rhone River. Itineraries are between Arles and Tain l'Hermitage / Tournon. The ship was built in 1963 in Belgium as a freight-carrying cargo vessel, and in 1990 was converted into a luxury hotel barge.Belmond Napoleon barge cruise ship

All the 6 cabins aboard Belmond Napoleon are equally sized (14 m2 / 150 ft2). Each stateroom features a flat TV, DVD player, closet, drawer space, hairdryer, en-suite bathroom (WC-shower only). Traditionally for this river travel company, Belmond cruise deals are inclusive of all meals (with complimentary wine and French cheese), open bar, all excursions and guided tours ashore (for instance Van Gogh's Arles walking tour and truffle tasting), also complimentary bicycles (for passenger use along the itinerary route). Optional trips (including golf tours, hot air balloon rides) cost extra.

Public spaces aboard include a saloon (lounge & bar) with Bose iPod docking station, DVD Player, piano keyboard, separate dining area, and top-deck sun deck with hot tub and sun loungers. A large canopy provides an outdoor shaded dining area. It also covers an exercise bike and some of the sun loungers. The 6-person crew is made up of a hostess, chef, tour guide, deck-hands and pilot (Captain).
