It has already travelled many seas and oceans around the world and will contribute to the development of new and exceptional destinations.

The ship will join our fleet next October and will start cruises between Thailand and Malaysia. Embark on board the MV LA BELLE DES OCEANS for an exceptional itinerary between Singapore and Phuket (or the other way around).

The Rhône - the ancient river 

The Rhône originates in the Helvetian region of Furka, in the Gotthard massif, at an altitude of 2,209 m. Its route merges with Lake Geneva, then joins France and flows through the delta of the same name into the Mediterranean Sea. It is 812 km long, of which 290 km is located in Switzerland.

Fast river, carrying many alluvium, it was difficult to navigate but it leads men to surpass themselves to tame it and especially to cross it!

The Rhône axis has become one of the major axes of European traffic, particularly on the Mediterranean-Northern Europe line, the development of the river has proved to be necessary.

Many archaeological excavations have uncovered traces of occupation since prehistoric times and antiquity, tin, copper or northern skins are exchanged for goods from the East and the Mediterranean (ivory, spices, fabrics, etc.). It became a means of commercial development in Roman times, with the transport of wine, tableware, salt, but also weapons and fabrics, enabling the development of cities such as Arles, Avignon, Lyon and Vienne, which also benefited from their geographical advantage at the crossroads of the Rhône.

CroisiEurope began the "conquest" of this river in 1995, today the Company offers cruises ranging from 3 to 11 days along this river rich in natural architectural and cultural jewels on board 4 boats: the MS Van Gogh, the MS Camargue, the MS Mistral and the MS Rhône Princess. There is no doubt that this trip will take you to the heart of some of the most beautiful and unspoilt landscapes in France, as well as to discover the mythical cities of Arles, Avignon, Montélimar, Lyon and Valence.
