Review of ms Loire Princesse

MS Loire Princesse ship cruises on Loire River Loire Valley wine region in northwest France) departing from homeport Nantes (Brittany France) on roundtrip itineraries. The CroisiEurope-owned vessel is powered by 2 side paddle wheels. The paddlewheel propulsion technology allows the boat to be the only large cruise ship able to navigate Loire River's shallow waters.

ms Loire Princesse river cruise ship (CroisiEurope)

Loire Princesse only mimics the traditional "waterwheel" technology (developed for riverboats deployed on the deepwater waterways in the USA) as the vessel can safely navigate in just 1 m (3 ft) of water. CroisiEurope's paddlewheeler was specially designed for the Loire River (France's longest) whose depth greatly varies due to tides and weather.

Decks and Cabins

The riverboat has 3 decks and 48 passenger cabins (equally sized at 160 ft2 / 15 m2) in 3 grades, including 1x wheelchair-accessible cabin (for passengers with reduced mobility). Main Deck staterooms (18 double) are with Riverview windows (non-opening). All Upper Deck cabins (30 double, each with a private balcony) are with floor-ceiling windows (slide-opening) and step-out balconies (furnished with two deckchairs).

Standard amenities provided in each stateroom (regardless of the cabin category/deck location) include a double bed (Queen-size, convertible to two twins upon request), bedside cabinets, smart HDTV (satellite reception), radio, phone (only for internal calls), a small table with stool, a small wardrobe, electronic safe box (in the closet), an en-suite bathroom (wall-mounted toilet, mirrored single-sink vanity, shower cubicle, hairdryer, toiletries), individual air-conditioning.

Shipboard facilities

The ship's amenities and facilities include a lounge (with a dance floor and its own bar), a dining room (restaurant with patio terrace), sundeck relaxation area (with chaise loungers and deckchairs), gift shop, library, also complimentary bicycles and Wi-Fi Internet usage.

The Loire Princesse ship cruises on Loire River in France. Departures are from Nantes, with round-trip itineraries.

The boat is labeled “Green Ship”, as she was designed with great respect for the environment. One of the fleet's newest members, this CroisiEurope riverboat was christened in Nantes France, on April 2, 2015, with 2 godmothers (the Mayor of Nantes and the Mayor of Sarrebrucken) and 1 godfather (the General Manager of STX France).

The CroisiEurope company is family-owned and based in Strasbourg France. Established in 1976, this premium line operates all aspects of its cruises: from the vessel building (design and construction) to cuisine and hotel services. CroisiEurope is among Europe's largest cruise line companies.

CroisiEurope river cruise deals are inclusive of soft drinks and alcohol (wine and beer with lunch and dinner (year-round). The line offers deals inclusive of unlimited drinks during Europe's high season (April through October) each year. However, unlike most river cruise lines, CroisiEurope charges its guests additionally for shore excursions.
