Reviews for the The Sparkling Cruise

It was an awesome experience. The scenery was beautiful and it was so peaceful. It was also very exciting to explore all the little towns along the way. The boat was very cosy.
True value for money. The starter pack is also great value. You get much more than what you pay for.
Staff were very helpful & obliging
Canals were great and the Lock keepers all good
Excellent service - boat was ready early, spotlessly clean and all necessary info was provided for our route and points of interest.Some of the extras weren't necessary (eg a lantern not needed when it was light until 10pm!) but apart from that we found everything just as we hoped. It was our second Le Boat cruise and we hope it won't be our last.
Very quiet, laid-back, beautiful countryside with lots of small hamlets and gorgeous scenery. Ideal if you want a "chilled" holiday; might be too quiet for those who want a bit more activity on their nightly stops.
We were allowed to stow our supplies on board several hours early, as Le Boats preparations were almost complete. This made for a very relaxing afternoon prior to picking up our charter
Relaxing cruise along a not too heavily travelled canal, with two Pont du Canals, and a double lock at Decize
The staff were very helpful and the boat was superb. The weather helped to make it a very peaceful and relaxing holiday with about 95% of the steering done from the top deck. We were glad of the bikes that we hired even if the gears didn't work on one of them. All in all a very well equipped boat made for a fantastic holiday, thank you Le Boat.
It was a good journey and the distance was about right for a week. I was a little disappointed there were not any open to public chateaus and few vineyards on route, but thats our our issue not Le Boats
