BARGE CRUISES

Barge Cruises

2019 marks Frontiers’ 36th year of representing our own hand-picked portfolio of Luxury and Boutique Barges cruising in Europe.

We are flattered to be a key supplier to the European Canal Barge community and also to be selected as Condé Nast Traveler magazine's barge specialist. We have no ownership in or bias toward any barge; therefore, our recommendations are 100 percent objective and truly respond to your preferences. It's important for the prospective barge customer to note that Frontiers does not recommend "just any barge." The vessels we've listed on this website are "top shelf" barges, ensuring a high level of quality in all aspects of your cruise, but still offering a cross section of routes, levels of luxury and budgets.

Frontiers Specialist Jill Jergel is our resident barge guru and authority for all things 'European Canal and River Cruising' for good reason. She helped introduce the concept of a luxury barge vacation to the American traveler in 1983 and has personally inspected every barge we represent in Europe. Her hand-picked selection of vessels in France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Scotland, Ireland and England are what you'll find in Frontiers' collection of European barge cruises. Since 2003, Jill has been selected as one of Condé Nast Traveler magazine's top agents for providing unique and professional arrangements in both France and throughout Europe on deluxe canal barge cruises. She's been to Europe countless times in her 40 years as a professional agent and looks forward to putting her expertise to work for you.
