Burgundy / Bourgogne FRANCE
(CANAL DE BOURGOGNE : Between FLEUREY-SUR-OUCHE and ESCOMMES)

The 12-passenger L'Impressionniste, sistership to La Belle Epoque, began life as a cargo barge in Holland before undergoing a complete transformation into the powerful canal and river cruiser she is today.

Her light and airy interior features picture windows and selections of prints, fabrics and wall colorings reminiscent of the turn of the century era after which she has been named. She is crewed by a professional crew of six - Captain, Master Chef, Tour Guide, Deck Hand/Steward and two Hosts/Hostesses who will ensure you have everything you need on your all-inclusive vacation.
