Champagne Region France

December 4, 2012 by  

Champagne Region France, River cruising is on a roll, no doubt about that, with armadas of elongated vessels like big bateaux mouches chugging up and down the Rhine, Danube and indeed the Yangtze. “Haven’t seen an iceberg yet,” one passenger told me.

But sharing the bar with jolly lads in lederhosen is not for everyone, such as the small group I joined on a barge cruise in the Champagne region of France. We were just 12, and with all drinks and wine included, there was every incentive to be in good cheer from the moment we boarded Adrienne, at Chalons-en-Champagne, no less.

Champagne and canap├ęs were offered by the smartly dressed young crew, all fluent in English. The captain was French and the chef Italian, and typical of the professionalism of the wait staff was Claire, who runs upmarket ski chalets in the winter.

The lower deck has six double bedrooms with everything – a pleasing combination of 18th century French manoir and modern functionality – such as the efficient air conditioning.
