MS Deborah barge, cruising the Champagne region of France as well as cruising from Paris to Burgundy, is a superb Premium canal barge, accommodating 22 passengers, in 11 cabins offering amenities and providing guests with all the comforts they need during their stay.
On board, everything has been taken care of down to the smallest detail with 6 crew members to guarantee a personalized service. The decoration creates a particularly soft and welcoming atmosphere. Located on the upper deck is the restaurant, which offers delicate cuisine in a refined setting, a lounge bar, and a relaxation area with a jacuzzi. Comfortable sun loungers are provided on the sun deck, the ideal place to relax and admire the surrounding landscapes. The barge also features bicycles for cycling along the canal towpath or for cycling the nearby towns and countryside.
Excursions on the Champagne itinerary can include Reims Cathedral featuring stained glass windows by Marc Chagall, champagne tastings, a falconry show at Chateau-Thierry, and a tasting of Meaux cheese in Meaux.
On the Paris and Petite Seine, enjoy a tour of Paris, a tour of the Palace of Fontainebleau and its gardens, the Medieval town of Troyes, a champagne-tasting, and a visit to Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte.
The Deborah has comfortable cabins, with safes, telephone, and tv with lots of movies in English. The ship is a new build rather than a converted cargo barge from the past. The barge features lots of windows and a white interior to give it an open feel.
Dining on the Deborah is in one sitting. Breakfast is usually a buffet of fruits, cereals, and pastries as well as meats and cheese. Lunch has a buffet and served food. Dinner is a served meal featuring regional wines paired with the meal and regional cheeses. For travelers with special dietary needs, the barge chef can accommodate most requests.
