What is CroisiEurope?

Known for its river cruises, CroisiEurope also offers ocean voyages on two small ships. The 130-passenger La Belle des Oceans (formerly Silversea's silver discoverer), introduced in 2020, is heading to the main towns of Corsica this coming year, making the short round-trip from Nice. Guests will be able to follow in the footsteps of Napoleon, visit the hilltop villages of Balagne, and enjoy dinner at a traditional inn. Meanwhile, the 197-guest La Belle de l'Adriatique is sailing a red sea itinerary until March, then setting off on an eight-day Aegean itinerary from Athens between June and August.

Why choose this cruise line?

CroisiEurope draws with its attractive prices and even more attractive destinations, offering cruisers the chance to sail in all four corners of the globe.

Flexibility is key here, the choice between premium and standard ship, and also the fantastic range of excursions and excursion packages available.

Unlike most other river cruise lines who offer a buffet, both lunch and dinner are served as sit-down affairs, with three- to four-course menus offering French favourites – a great option for those looking for a more traditional cruise experience.

A real selling point with CroisiEurope is its Po river cruises, with the ship docking right in the heart of the Venetian lagoon for overnight stays and acting as a floating hotel.
