Clair de Lune barge Review

Review of Clair de Lune barge

MS Clair de Lune barge is a hotel barge (cruise ship) made in Holland and launched in 1997 under the name "Aurora". The vessel was initially owned by a Dutch family and constructed and operated as cargo barge for cocoa shipping. In 1998, the ship was drydock reconstructed into a luxury hotel barge for cruises on Canal du Midi (in southern France). This Holland-flagged vessel (ENI number 03170639) is currently owned and operated by European Waterways.

MS Clair de Lune barge cruise ship

From July through September, the hotel barge cruises on Canal du Midi with 7-day itinerary passing Castelnaudary and Carcassonne. Ticket prices are inclusive of shore excursions to Mirepoix, Lac de Saint-Ferreol and Limoux for private wine tasting.

The ship Clair de Lune is tastefully furnished with African hardwoods and cherrywood. Besides a modern and sophisticated interior, the riverboat also boasts superior accommodations for up to 6 passengers in 3 contemporary twin or double junior suites with in-cabin facilities, making her ideal for family charters.

The hotel barge has a comfortable, elegantly appointed saloon (bar lounge with dining area) featuring large picture windows, a spacious sundeck (with a whirlpool bathtub), complimentary bicycles (for all passengers to ride alongside the waterway).
