Crew is the quintessence in taking the barge cruise experience from amazing to extraordinary. Attentive and amiable, barge crew are solely focused on their guests’ comfort and pleasure. Guests often disembark feeling as if they are saying goodbye to dear friends.
All hotel barges are crewed, with crew members living onboard the vessel, or close to the cruise route. Depending on a boat’s guest capacity and rating, crew on hotel barges range from three to seven. With such a small number of guests on barges, the high crew-to-guest ratio allows for levels of personalized service unheard of on larger boats. This boutique service and personalized pampering truly sets barge cruises apart from its contemporaries.
