French America Line

Beginning this summer, Canadian cruise travel lovers will have the opportunity to sail on the New Orleans-based French America Line.

In August 2016 French America Line, the world’s newest cruise line, will introduce a new era of boutique U.S. river experiences with the launch of the intimate 150-guest flagship Louisiane ™. Formerly the Columbia Queen, the Louisiane is undergoing a multi-million dollar refurbishment to reflect an elegant French-inspired ambience to embrace the rich history of the areas she sails, once known as French America.

Brimming with the romantic joie de vivre of her New Orleans home port, inaugural sailings for a maximum of 150 guests will begin August 22, 2016. Travelers can sail from the charms of the Mississippi Headwaters™ of the Ohio River Valley to the rugged beauty of Tennessee’s Wilderness, Cumberland and Red rivers regions.

The luxurious ship will accommodate guests in 75 inviting staterooms and suites for sailings that celebrate the cultural and epicurean influences of La belle France mixed with warm Southern hospitality and refined, unobtrusive service.

The Louisiane’s small size allows her to navigate in narrow achat viagra pour homme maroc areas and access historic river ports on five American rivers that larger ships cannot reach, creating a unique opportunity to see and experience locations that haven’t been accessed by a U.S. river ship in more than a decade.

“We are bringing a breath of fresh air to cruising”, says Tom Markwell, President of French America Line.

“Cruise travelers can savor the culinary art of our acclaimed Chef de Cuisine, Regina Charboneau and enjoy a host of extra amenities such as an included pre-cruise deluxe hotel night in their embarkation port, complimentary Traveler Collection™ custom-crafted shore excursions in every port of call, complimentary free-flowing hand-selected spirits, wines and beers, complimentary Wi-Fi, iPads® in each stateroom/suite with pre-loaded e-books, daily programs and menus, and luxury touches such as a welcome gift of delicate Parisian macarons from the House of Ladurée®”.

To celebrate the introduction of Louisiane™ in the Canadian market, French America Line is proud to present a special offer that includes pre-paid gratuities, a one (1) category upgrade and $100US per stateroom/suite Shipboard Credit on bookings made by July 29th, 2016.
