Reviews for the Classique

The U.S. ground team was helpful and accommodating. The team onsite was charming and professional. We felt very well taken care of and thoroughly enjoyed our entire time in France. The boat may not be made with the finest wood and finishes, but it has everything you need to be comfortable and content.
Tall people can stand up nearly everywhere on the boat! An awesome luxury in itself. Great deck for dining. Separate showers and bathrooms is a huge plus for this boat.
Have been before and it's a great experience would definitely recommend
Fab boat unfortunately the Consul that we had the propeller fell of an hour up the canal

Really enjoyed our day on the boat, all the staff in Carrick on Shannon were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble
As Above
The boat was well equipped and gave us the comfort we required for our 5 day cruise. The tuition was somewhat short but adequate.
The initial cruise was due April 2016 but, due to flooding, was delayed until September 2016. Different boat to that originally booked but good value for money.
See following which is a letter I was about to post regarding some problems on my cruise.
I am writing to you as a fairly regular customer on the Canal du Midi as this year I was a little disappointed in my one way trip from Casternaudary to Port Cassafieres, and I feel you ought to know about it. I collected two boats on Saturday 3rd August, a Classique and a Crusader. Some of my guests were a little late on arriving on the Saturday and we could not therefore leave their car for transporting to Port Cassafieres until the Sunday. However, we could not have left Castelnaudary on the Saturday anyway because there was some doubt about whether the refrigerator on the Crusader was working (as it happened it was, but was on the wrong setting) and the pump to clear the water from one of showers at the back of the Crusader was also not working. This was not corrected by late morning on the Sunday and we therefore had to leave with it still not working. However, this was not the real problem. Having previously cruised several times between Port Cassafieres and Castelnaudary I had always found time to visit some of the local towns, Carcassonne, Capestang, and others but this time we were dramatically held up at at least two of the locks at the beginning of our cruise. At one we arrived at 8.30.a.m. and found that we were 14th and 15th in the queue. We eventually got through at 12.15.p.m. At the very next lock which we arrived at at about 1.15.p.m. we eventually got through at about 5.30.p.m. That meant that we had effectively lost a day. I telephoned Port Cassafieres to advise them that if this was typical there was no way we would arrive on Saturday 10th. I spoke to a very pleasant lady who rang me back on the Friday to see where I was. In fact by hardly seeing any of the towns and by cruising most of the day we arrived in Port Cassafieres by 9.00. a.m. on the Saturday. Fortunately most of the remainder of the locks were busy but we were not kept waiting an excessive time at any of them. This was not what I was expecting and I had invited 12 of my family so that they could enjoy not only the cruising but also the towns and scenery. On the other hand, I have to say that all your staff were obliging, courteous and helpful in the extreme.
