Capacity: 6 Guests
Sometimes you just know something is going to be great because you trust the brilliant driving force behind the project: their talent, their eye, their accomplishments. For 11 years, Frontiers has heartily recommended the barge, Prosperite, to travelers looking for a top shelf experience, and all have consistently returned home raving about their ultra-luxe canal cruise. Late in 2015, the “idea people” behind Prosperite successfully launched a splendid new 6-passenger barge, Rendezvous. Created and designed to provide a quality cruise at a reasonable price, the interiors of Rendezvous feature a clean, neutral and classically stylish look – uncluttered but with an appealing and modern décor. Barge host par-excellance, Spencer Hayes, and his partner in the project, a builder and hotel-owner, have chosen only the finest components and materials, creating a relaxed and welcoming feel, not at all formal. For want of a better description, I’ll say almost Pottery Barn-ish, with an upgraded, chic and overall appealing ambiance.
The three cabins, one slightly larger than the other two, are well-appointed and feature amazing beds. Onboard service provided by an enthusiastic and well-seasoned crew highlights divine cuisine and superior wines, while thoughtful, unhurried excursions are escorted by a knowledgeable and congenial “Ambassador to Burgundy.” So gather your friends or family and plan a Rendezvous in southern Burgundy.
Inclusions: 6-nights / 7-days in a cabin with a private bath, chauffeured transfers from Paris to the barge & return, all meals, from dinner the first night to breakfast the last morning, all wines with lunch & dinner, open bar, daily escorted excursions and use of onboard bicycles.
Exclusions: Airfare to and from France, cancellation insurance and crew gratuity (suggested minimum amount is 7% of the cruise price).
