It is now 100 years since the outbreak of World War One and European Waterways will be offering a number of 6-night, all-inclusive, World War One Commemorative Cruises each Spring for the next few years.
In 2015, these cruises will be aboard our 12 passenger hotel barge, 'La Belle Epoque', along the Canal du Nord, whilst some will also branch along the Canal de la Somme. Both these waterways were at the centre of battles during World War One and the cruises will feature excursions to some of the most significant sites and memorials in Flanders and the Somme, including:
•The Menin Gate in Ypres for the very moving Last Post ceremony.
•Vimy Ridge, site of the Canadian National Memorial, Canada's largest overseas memorial.
•The Thiepval memorial, a heart-rending monument to 75,000 missing soldiers who fell during the Battle of the Somme.
•The forest clearing at Compiegne where the Armistice was signed on November 11, 1918.
Two cruises will follow the Canal de la Somme, starting or ending near Villers-Bretonneux on the weekend of the ANZAC Day Dawn Service, an event of deep significance to Australians and New Zealanders.
The excursion programme for the four cruises will have some flexibility built in to allow, where possible, guests of different nationalities to visit sites of particular significance to their own countries. In addition, there will be interesting cruising through the Picardy countryside and highlights such as passing through the historic city of Lille and negotiating the 3-mile-long Ruyaulcourt Tunnel. Passengers will also be able to enjoy some excellent regional cuisine and fine French wines.
We hope to welcome you aboard for one of these fascinating voyages through the landscapes of Northern France that witnessed events a century ago which changed the course of history.
