Cyrano de Bergerac

Built in 2012 and launched in May 2013, the MS Cyrano de Bergerac is a stylish and elegant vessel built to embody comfort and relaxation with attentive personal service for cruises in the Bordeaux region. The vessel can accommodate up to 174 passengers but for the purposes of this cruise we are limiting the passenger number to 150 to allow for more space onboard and a convivial atmosphere. Original paintings throughout the ship and French design touches give the ship a unique character. The vessel is owned and operated by our associates CroisiEurope and we have chartered the ship for this fascinating voyage. There is also a highly qualified and experienced crew of 30.
