The Cabins

The Cabins

A soft, serene décor complements the hushed scenery outside. With refined oak-panelled ceilings and ensuite bathrooms, each cabin provides welcome rest after a day of activity.

Drink in the views from your open window, or simply lay back and let your mind drift before evening cocktails on deck.

A sparkling sojourn

Let the champagne pour as you follow the flow of France’s beautiful river Marne.

If you linger over the view from the abbey at Hautvillers, you’ll sense a nascent sparkle in the air rising from the very vines grown by Dom Perignon himself. At Epernay, sample sensational champagnes from the house of Moët & Chandon, a liquid legend over 200 years in the making. Sit back, relax—take a sip.

With scenery this marvellous, why rush? Cruising aboard our fleet is a suitably laid back affair. Unwind on deck under our sheltered canopy, or give in to a medley of local delicacies.
