La Nouvelle Etoile
Holland Cruise

The La Nouvelle Etoile  slowly plies along picturesque inland waterways of Holland, France and Belgium lined with magnificent foliage and speckled with charming towns.

The La Nouvelle Etoile includes a large sun deck with jacuzzi, a main deck with a panoramic  lounge, a bar area with piano, a dining room, a fitness room and an elevator.  There are 4 oversized  suites (over 200 square feet), featuring flat screen monitors with internet connection, satellite television and video, double sink bathrooms with large showers.

Meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout - from the selection of the linens, to the fresh fruit and flowers in each suite.  The warm, elegant teak interiors, subtle color schemes and pleasant furnishings invite you to relax and enjoy.
