Savoir Faire barge Review

Review of Savoir Faire barge

The Savoir Faire barge ship was built in Amsterdam in 1932. Originally, she transported cargo on waterways in Belgium and Holland. During WW2 (1939-1945), the vessel served as a troop carrier. In 1976, it was converted into a luxury hotel barge and currently is operated by Christopher Bennett- shipowner and Captain. Savoir Faire cruises on canals and rivers in France, Belgium, and Holland.

Savoir Faire barge cruise ship

The cruise ship has 6 double cabins for up to 12 passengers. It has separate crew quarters housing the crew of 6, which consists of two hostesses, chef, deckhand, tour guide and the Captain.

There are 5 separate public areas on the ship. The bar, salon (lounge) and dining area are finished in teak, brass, and mahogany, and decorated with paintings and antiques collected over the years. 

The main lounge of the ship has panoramic windows, upright piano, library corner, game table, and comfortable custom-made furniture. Adjacent to the salon lounge is a stylish dining room, vast enough to double as the ship's "dance club" on festive evenings. The barge's aft area hosts a cozy cocktail lounge which is the favorite meeting place for quiet conversations and aperitifs. There are 2 spacious open-deck areas - a foredeck (opening directly from the main lounge) and an elevated observation deck offering an unforgettable view of passing countryside along the itinerary.
