Panache has a highly professional crew of six, comprised of Master Chef, Deck Hand, Tour guide, two Housekeepers, and led by a knowledgeable and experienced Captain, who will ensure your cruise is memorable and more. Their knowledge of the region, combined with fascinating chauffeur-driven private excursions and the 12 bikes provided, will allow you to explore the areas you cruise through in as much detail as you desire.

Panache cruises in Holland in the Spring when the flowers are in full bloom. This is without a doubt the best time to visit this country. The cruises in Holland are carefully planned to allow you to experience all that the country has to offer.

Panache then offers a number of voyages in Belgium, Picardy and Paris before cruising in Champagne for a number of weeks in June and July. The Champagne itineraries typically include Brie cheese tastings, a tour of the Cathedral at Reim, Epernay and of course, tastings at renowned Champagne houses.

In the Summer and Autumn, Panache cruises the beautiful and varied waterways of Alsace-Lorraine, a region of France offering a unique mix of French and German cultures, history and local gastronomy.

Panache's voyage through Alsace-Lorraine will give you the opportunity to appreciate the very best of the region, passing storybook villages along the way, visiting places such as Strasbourg, renowned for their Baroque and Romanesque architecture and uniquely, experiencing Europe's most famous boat elevator!
