CroisiEurope inaugurates three new vessels at the CroisiEurope river port in Strasbourg
Friday, March 28, 2014, CroisiEurope, Europe’s largest river cruising company, christened the MS Lafayette, the newest member of its Rhine Fleet in Strasbourg, France with Mrs. Mary Rose N. Reade, wife of the U.S. Consul General Evan G. Reade, served as godmother of the ship. Drawing its name from the famous French general whose support played an integral part in securing American independence, the MS Lafayette showcases a newly conceptualized design with larger, more spacious cabins each equipped with floor to ceiling picture windows.
“Not only is this a beautiful ship, but, as her name implies, she represents a special link between our two cultures. Just as the Marquis de Lafayette, bridged two worlds and helped bring France and the young country of the United States together as strong and lasting friends, this ship, the ‘MS Lafayette’ will bring many voyagers together as they sail friendly seas,” stated Mary Rose N. Reade during her inauguration speech.
Highlights of the MS Lafayette will include:
In addition to the MS Lafayette, two hotel barges were also christened, the barge Anne-Marie and the barge Madeleine.
