There’s more than one way to tour Europe’s waterways, however, very few match the pleasure, pace and personalization of a private barge cruise. These luxuriously converted freight boats allow you to sightsee your way along canals and rivers, stopping to visit charming villages, enjoy a delightful meal at a local auberge or sample delicious wines right at the vineyard where they are produced. Stephanie Sack of Barge Lady Cruises gives us an insider “crash course” via this colorful barge terminology and how it can apply on the cruises they offer. Put on your captain’s hat and hop aboard!
