Deluxe Class Boat for Bike Tours
In 2016, we saw the launch of a new premium barge, the Magnifique II, to wonderful reviews. The ship boasts a classical style with emphasis on superior comfort. Highlights of the barge include 4 upper deck suites, with cozy seating area and a large panoramic window, half of which can open.
On the upper deck there is a tastefully furnished salon with restaurant, bar, lounge with wide screen TV, large windows. You will also enjoy a partly covered teak wooden sun deck with chairs and tables on the aft deck, a hot tub, and a cycle shed (front deck).
On the lower deck, you will find 13 cabins: 12 regular twin cabins and 1 premium twin. The lower deck cabins have portholes which cannot be opened.
On the upper deck, there are 4 beautiful suites that measure approximately 14 m square. The suites have two single beds, sitting area, and large panoramic windows measuring 2 meters which can be opened. One of the upper deck suites and two of the regular twin cabins, lower deck, can be converted to triple cabins with an extra bed above one of the beds.
