CroisiEurope Cruises


Life is more beautiful on the water

A family owned and operated company for 48 years, CroisiEurope Cruises offers an exceptional value in cruise vacations. With discount programs for multigeneration, summer and holiday “kids cruise free” offer and low to no solo supplements, CroisiEurope is an ideal choice for women travelers choosing to vacation solo, with children or as a family group.  Many of our ship feature single cabins with no supplement.  With meals, drinks and guided excursions included, everything is taken care of.

Small Ship Trips for Women

Gérard Schmitter founded CroisiEurope in 1976, and since then the company has become the leader and model for the European river cruise industry. CroisiEurope proposes intimate-sized cruises on canals, rivers and seas in Europe and around the world.

In 2023, more than 175,000 passengers were welcomed aboard its fleet of 50 ships.

Today’s success is navigated by Mr. Schmitter’s second- and third-generation heirs, who carry forth his values. Their goal is to offer “all-included” packages with impeccable service on reasonably scaled, top-comfort ships by providing a variety of cruises which continue to keep up with the times. CroisiEurope incorporates every aspect of our profession in order to share the French joie de vivre with our passengers.

Through our unique market position, CroisiEurope is the only company diverse enough to propose cruises on European and worldwide rivers and canals, as well as the seas. Our ever-growing number of customers appreciate our boutique-style ships—from just 16 passengers on board the RV African Dream and the RV Zimbabwean Dream, to 22 on our canal barges, and up to 197 passengers on the MV La Belle de l’Adriatique.

Commitment to Sustainability

CroisiEurope’s longstanding environmental position focuses on nature as our most valuable asset. This commitment is an integral part of the company’s culture through a series of concrete actions both within our company and on board our ships. We consider ourselves pioneers in our field, as our commitment to protecting the environment goes above and beyond our legal obligations. We are continually reflecting on how we can expand our green efforts. Check the “No Solo Supplement” page of our Special Offers online for a complete list of current solo traveler offers.

Single Supplement Policy

Many CroisiEurope ships include single cabins with no supplement. Throughout the year the line also runs “no solo supplement” special offers for select departures on a variety of itineraries and ships. Single parents traveling with children can also take advantage of summer Family Club Cruises where children under 16 cruise free and parents traveling solo have the solo supplement waived.
