River cruise ship charter in Provence

When thinking of the region between Camargue, Marseille and Lyon, blue glowing lavender fields, pink flamingos and narrow, stone-lined alleys come to mind. However, its full splendor and diversity is revealed when you charter a river cruise ship in Provence: from Arles up the Rhône to Lyon, quaint villages, chic old towns, Avignon with its imposing papal palace, the vineyards of the Rhône Valley, impressive gorges and the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape pass by.

The picturesque landscape has inspired artists, painters, musicians for centuries and so a cruise event in Provence promises a multi-faceted experience. Especially if you entrust OceanEvent with the ship charter and entertainment for your trip. Whether a company celebration, incentive, private event or conference – varied supporting programs are not difficult to arrange here: from trips in the classic of French car history (the duck, french: 2CV) to culinary pleasures at a Provençal cooking course and a visit to the stately wineries to a steam locomotive ride through the stone arches of the Ardèche.

What awaits you…

OceanEvent offers modern river cruise ships of the 4- and 5-star category for cruising on the Rhône. They are elegant, charming and extremely versatile. In the cabins, as in all areas of the ship, a warm interior and design provide a pleasant feel-good atmosphere. Cuisine and service are convincing at a high level.

The Panorama Lounge with its floor-to-ceiling windows and flexible seating is an excellent place for meetings. But also celebrate! Honors, receptions, entertainment and much more can take place here. Or on the magnificent sun deck with 1000 square meters of space, Lido bar, infinity pool and shuffle field. This makes the upper deck a popular meeting place throughout the cruise. Lively conversations, fun and good ideas are created here almost en passant, and OceanEvent can organize almost any type of open-air event for you here.

We also make the restaurant multifunctional for you. Elegant for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it can serve in between as a meeting room, break-out room and the like for conferences. Your Senior Charter Manager from OceanEvent will take care of all the necessary logistics and coordinate with the ship’s crew.
