Caroline is the perfect value-driven barge for “foodies” who wish to travel on a budget while still enjoying a very warm and personalized cruise.
This flower-festooned vessel is owned and operated by a charming couple, Captain Uli and Chef Ute, who have been area residents for 30 years. Guests immerse into the local cuisine culture by eating three meals off the barge (a combination of lunch/dinner) at your expense. Captain Uli secures all restaurant reservations and provide transfers to and from the dining venues. Back on the barge Chef Ute spends much of her time in the galley preparing the freshly made meals. In fact, she invites guests into the kitchen for informal cooking demonstrations! Daily excursions reveal the Canal’s many historical attractions and sites of interest. The three double occupancy cabins vary in size and have pre-configured bed types. Note the two twin bedded cabins have bathrooms across the hall as opposed to en suite. Enjoy this beautiful video about life aboard the Caroline! The services of the cruise begin and end at a city of your choice along the Canal du Midi and train tickets are not included in the cruise price.
