MS Cyrano De Bergerac, CroisiEurope

Cruises on the Gironde Estuary, and on the Garonne and Dordogne rivers


This May, the MS Cyrano de Bergerac will join the CroisiEurope fleet and be transferred from Strasbourg to Bordeaux where it will join the MS Princesse d’Aquitaine. It will have its inaugural voyage on Friday 17th May at the Quai des Chartrons in the presence of a privileged few.


The cruise liner can accommodate 180 passengers in cabins located on three decks. It is 110 metres long by 11.4 metres wide. The attractive restaurant is large enough to serve all passengers in a single sitting. The ship’s galley kitchens are furnished with top-of-the-range high precision kitchen utensils and equipment in order to provide meals of the highest quality. A spacious lounge bar with a dance floor in the centre offers passengers an ideal area to relax and socialise. There is also a Pianorama Bar which is smaller and cosier than the main lounge bar. There is a very large sun deck of more than 1000 square metres, where passengers can relax on deck chairs and enjoy the sun and fresh air to the full. The elegant and warm décor is entirely in keeping with the ambience on board.


The boat is equipped with all the latest cutting edge technology and offers its passengers both comfort and security. Each cabin is equipped with en suite shower and WC, a flat screen television, hairdryer, safe, radio and individually controlled air-conditioning and heating. There is also a highly qualified and experienced crew of 30.
