One of the best holidays we have ever had!
It was an easy boat to steer and very well equipped.
Enjoyed the upgrade of the boat at the last minute. The scenery & Pubs along the way were great
Very comfortable for 4 persons & luggageEnjoyed the top deck & the two shower/toilet facilities The two way doors from the bathrooms to the bedroom & corridor was a great advantageThe kitchen was lager than expected
The administrative part of Le Boat service, i.e. making the booking, taking payments and providing information, I would only rate as "good". In particular, although recognising that the floods in France must have created an administrative overload, until the last week we were assured everything would be ok, and then in the last week the direction of travel was changed and even in the last two days the route was changed, necessitating urgent changes to hotel bookings and travel plans. It was only after actually arriving at the Le Boat terminal in Migennes that we learned, that what we were being offered was a cruise on the Canal du Bourgogne, which was navigable, instead of the originally planned Canal de Nivernais, which was not navigable at that time. This was a great relief, and earlier advice of the change of canal and the circumstances would have avoided much anxiety. In the whole process of dealing with Le Boat by e-mail, I seemed to be dealing with a different person each time, and it seems to me that appointing one person who is responsible for all aspects of a clients matters ("single point of contact") would make client relations smoother for Le Boat. In contrast to the above, I can only describe the service provided by the staff at the base in Migennes as "excellent". They were friendly, very professional in providing all the necessary information about the cruise and the canal, as well as the boat, and overall they were very helpful.
The boat was very well equipped, and the kitchen had everything that one could wish. It was a pleasure to cruise on it. The only critical point might be that some of our group found that the ventilation in their cabin was insufficient, and sleeping on hot days was difficult. From a navigation viewpoint, the fact that the boat had a transverse bow propeller made navigation much easier for people with little experience in handling boats, especially in restricted spaces such as locks.
