Ouges is a Burgundy Canal cruise port and a large village in France's La Cote-d'Or department (Bourgogne-Franche-Comte region) with population around 1,500. Ouges is located on Canal de Bourgogne (Burgundy Canal) in central-eastern France. Constructed between 1775-1832, Burgundy Canal connects Yonne River (at Migennes) with Saone River (at Saint-Jean-de-Losne).
A train station in Ouges serves SNCF's railway line that links Dijon (Cote-d'Or) with Saint-Amour (Jura). The railroad serves TGV trains travelling on LGV Sud-Est (high-speed line) that links directly Paris with Lyon and Marseille (Mediterranean Sea).
As cruise port, Ouges was included in the 2019 schedule of the luxury hotel barge Deborah. The ship is 2016-built and owned by CroisiEurope - one of the world's largest river cruise companies. Next table shows CroisiEurope's 6-day itinerary between homeports Besancon and Dijon.
