Things to know about CroisiEurope with kids
The free child places offer doesn’t include excursions, you’ll have to pay for these separately. You’re also limited to two children per fare-paying adult.
CroisiEurope is the only river cruise line in Europe with no minimum age to sail, so kids of all ages are welcome on board, even babies.
Regarding accommodation, one child can share a room with two adults. Otherwise, kids aged five and over can stay in the cabin next door. Of course, if you take this option then a room with windows, rather than a French balcony is recommended.
CroisiEurope is a great choice for single parents too, as the single supplement is waived when travelling with children.
