Barge line to return Nenuphar to roster after refurbishments

French Country Waterways will relaunch its 12-passenger, all-suite Nenuphar barge in spring of 2007 after a one-year layoff for a complete renovation.

The barge will be deployed in France's Champagne region beginning May 13 with newly renovated suites featuring custom cherry paneling and furniture and marble bathrooms.

The relaunch of Nenuphar will bring French Country Waterways' fleet to five, including the 18-passenger Esprit, the 12-passenger Adrienne, the eight-passenger Horizon II and the eight-passenger Princess.

All barges have sundecks and lounges; a dining room and bar; and libraries with books, music and games for passenger use.

Staterooms and suites have full-, queen- or king-size beds, storage space, individually controlled heat and air conditioning and private bathrooms.

All-inclusive prices range from $4,895 to $5,995 per person, double occupancy, including all meals; wine with lunch or dinner; one dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant; tours and excursions; and use of bicycles. The barges also are available for charter.
