France Cruises Promotes Family Cruising

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - July 2010 – France Cruises is now offering a variety of family cruises to fit any taste and any budget.

Experiencing a vacation with family can be one of the best ways to learn about each other and make life long memories. France Cruises recommends trying a barge cruise. Because these cruises are chartered, they can be conveniently tailored to any family, making vacationing a breeze. There are many cruises to fit any budget; from a casual cruise starting at $6,795 for a family of four to an ultra deluxe cruise starting at $37,900 for a family of six. Plus, having your own chef means meals will be both enjoyable and flexible. If you have a picky eater, you will find no problem having their few favorites available at mealtimes. And there are always many activities to keep everyone completely satisfied. Here are a few of the many cruises France Cruises offers.

Customize your cruise aboard the Maria. Onboard Maria, everyone can do what they want to do all of the time.  If Mom and Dad are sipping chilled Sancerre on deck and reading or watching the world float past, the kids can be cycling, swimming or walking, playing games or "helping" the Captain. The family can dress down and barbecue on the bank or dress up and go out to dinner. The barge moves daily so there is always somewhere new to explore together and the historic tourist attractions make history come alive for children as well as adults.

Prices for this cruise start at $6,795 for a family of four.

The ultra deluxe Roi Soleil offers a wide range of activities to suite your children's age-group. A fourth cabin can be provided for a Nanny to join the barge trip in the crew quarters if required. There are many possible activities other than the sheer pleasure of barging, such as: cycling; horse-back riding; 4-wheel driving on a bull ranch or on a rally track; hot-air ballooning; panoramic plane flight; bull-herding; cultural village events and village markets; or simply swimming at the beach or in a river or lazing by the spa onboard. Bicycles and helmets can be supplied to suit the size of the children. Dual excursions for children and adults during the canal cruises can be provided. Visit the museums or shops whilst the kids are supervised at the playground or markets or have a wine-tasting in the Wine Chateau while the kids take a 4-wheel-drive in the grounds on the rally track. Plus, there is a full range of DVD's for children and board games to play. As for food, the onboard Chef will cater to any food tastes.
