Bargesoffered by Denver Travel

All cruises are six nights/seven days.

Barge Categories:

-CHARMING/CLASSIC CLASS (From $3500 per person)
This is a great option for small charters of 4-8 passengers. The barge is typically operated by the barge owners who are the captain and cook. The atmosphere is relaxed with a variety of meal plans including some meals taken on shore giving passengers the adventure of experiencing local restaurants. As they do not have a large crew, they can operate at a lesser cost making this a very affordable cruise. Cabins are typically about 100 sq. feet. They are decorated in the owners' personal style - like a home away from home.

 
     

-FIRST CLASS (From $4500 per person)
A very diverse category from owner/operated floating homes to classic hotel barges carrying 6-21 passengers. Each barge has its own personality and style. There is more crew to take care of the cabins, guide tours and prepare the meals. The styles are very individual based on the owners' taste with cabins at 80-100 sq. ft.

 
     

-DELUXE (From $4800 per person)
Deluxe barges typically have more space per person in the common areas and in the cabins. The ambiance is elegant yet casual with excellent cuisine, stylish decor, large crew, more spacious cabins, and many with a hot tub on deck. Some even have demonstration kitchens to watch the chef prepare meals. Cabins range from 120 - 270 sq. feet, with many averaging about 150 sq. feet.

 
     

-ULTRA DELUXE (From $6400 per person)
What can we say - the ultimate with all the bells and whistles! Large suites, spacious living areas, elegant decor, state of the art technology, some demonstration kitchens, large experienced crew and luxurious amenities are some of the many features that set these barges apart from the rest. Cabins range from 160 - 280 sq. feet.
