European Waterways Offers 2018 Ryder Cup Cruises

L’Impressionniste barge cruise

European Waterways has announced a special golf themed luxury hotel barge cruises to bookend the Ryder Cup in France next year, September 28 – 30, 2018. 

The venue will be the L'Albatros Course, located 20 miles south of Paris and just hours from the cruise routes. The six-night, all-inclusive cruises depart on Sunday night and conclude the following Saturday. The cruises are also great for golfers who don’t attend the event, but still want to tee off at local courses as France hosts the Ryder Cup for the second time.
 
Eligible hotel barges include the 12-passenger L’Impressionniste, the eight-passenger Renaissance and the eight-passenger L’Art de Vivre, all of which cruise the Burgundy region of France. 

When chartering one of these barges, golfers will be able to play several rounds at top golf courses with pre-booked tee times during their cruise. Non-golfing guests will take part in escorted excursions to castles and chateaux, wine tastings, food markets, and other sightseeing opportunities and attractions.
 
As part of the golf theme cruises, guests will receive a special Ryder Cup themed welcome dinner and “gift pack” of official Ryder Cup golf balls and other event memorabilia. For those who charter a barge and are attending the event, a European Waterways-chauffeured Mercedes minibus will pick them up at the venue afterwards, or drop them off at the site after their pre-event cruise. European Waterways can also pick up and drop off guests at a designated, centrally located hotel in Paris.
