Luciole Blog

1st - 7th May 2016

The Luciole 2016 season has finally begun! The period of refitting the boat has drawn to a close and we welcomed our first group of passengers to the barge. We couldn't have asked for a better group to kick things off, an American family travelling together, as well as an American couple and an Australian couple. We had a calm but very funny week filled with laughter, wine, cycling and new friendships. The perfect week for new crew and old alike to get into the swing of barge life and remember just what a pleasure it is to cruise down the lovely Nivernais in the spring sunshine.

We were fortunate to boast an enormous and impressive crew of 9 this week, as hostess from previous seasons Emma was onboard all week for training purposes, and technical manager William bolstered the numbers even more. It made for a busy Galley at dinner time but allowed for a seamless and pleasant week, a very nice bonus to start on such a high.
