Children love Le Boat with the adventure of visiting a new destination each day. Of course there are parks playgrounds, museums and outdoor swimming pools all along our routes.
Our favourite family cruises are:
The Medieval Short Break, Canal du Midi
A cruise along this section of the famous Canal du Midi takes you through sun-drenched countryside and medieval towns and villages. Set high up on a hill, Carcassonne’s ancient walled city is Disneyworld-perfect. This fairytale collection of drawbridges, towers and atmospheric cobbled streets was reputedly the inspiration for Walt Disney’s The Sleeping Beauty and is perfect for a day of family medieval exploration. Plus, don’t miss a wine-tasting adventure with a difference. Burrow down deep beneath the Corbière massif. At 80 metres below ground, the Terra Vinea tour includes cellars containing hundreds of oak barrels, a small underground lake and a sound and light show. Part of the tour take place on board a small train, which the children will love!
Prices start at $AUD4,299 for a 7 night cruise including the discount, based on our new Horizon 2 cabin cruiser.
The Heart of England Cruise, River Thames
The famous River Thames winds its way around countless parks and picnic spots, such as Pangbourne Meadows, excellent places to moor up and have a picnic, enjoy a game of cricket and generally let off steam. For an action packed day of family fun, Thorpe Park will entertain with plenty of white-knuckle excitement and Legoland will captivate the younger ones with lots of fantastical fun. A day at Beale Park offers a unique collection of rare and endangered birds, an owlery and animal favourites including monkeys and meerkats, a choice of several adventure play areas and a narrow gauge diesel railway. Just a tube ride away is an exciting day exploring England’s famous capital city. Take a flight on the London Eye, see the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London and have some spooky fun at the London Dungeons.
Prices start at $AUD3,899 for 7 nights in July including the discount, based on our new Horizon 2 cabin cruiser.
The Arzviller Experience, Alsace Lorraine
The trendy and breathtaking region of Alsace Lorraine is perfect place for the kids to appreciate the great outdoors, with a good mix of modern-day excitement thrown in. The Arzviller boat lift, a marvel of modern engineering, is an unforgettable experience and will be a highlight of their holiday. A gigantic trough lifts/descends boats by 45 metres. Stop in Strasbourg for a unique and vibrant atmosphere. This cosmopolitan city is great for shopping, sightseeing and excellent restaurants. Make sure not to miss Europa Park, a short distance from our base at Boofzheim and Germany’s biggest theme park providing a sensational mix of adventure, entertainment and white-knuckle thrills.

The Flamingo Cruise, Camargue
For a perfect mixture of seaside fun, cruising and Mediterranean sunshine, the Camargue is our number one choice for families. The Canal du Rhône à Sète runs parallel to the Mediterraean coast and the beaches are great for kids – they are large so there’s no real risk of over-crowding. Many of them have lots of shops and restaurants and fun-fair amusements to keep kids occupied once they’ve had enough of swimming. Visit Les Rochers de Maguelone in Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone for a full day of activity with its 22 aerial tracks. Equipped with a harness and attached with a system of ropes and karabiners you walk on ropes, ladders, swing bridges and planks through the trees.
