A paddle Steamer on the Loire - A First and a World Exclusive

Unheard of: sailing on the Loire in a tourist boat with cabins! We could not, however, deprive our customers of the discovery of this royal river that leads to the most beautiful castles in France. 

With an exclusive worldwide construction and in partnership with the shipyard of Saint-Nazaire, CroisiEurope in 2013 built a wheeled paddleboat that won the "Innovation Award" of river tourism 2014. After the last river “taxi’s” cruised the river 100 years ago, this is beautiful proof of our technical skills and willingness to meet the challenge.


In 2016, the year of its 40th anniversary, CroisiEurope inaugurated a second paddle boat, this time with a rear wheel . The MS Elbe Princesse was created to reach the heart of the beautiful cities of Prague and Berlin.

Thanks to these boats designed for shallow water, CroisiEurope is the only company to sail on the Loire and the Elbe.
