Luxury Barges Make a Comeback

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Cruises on gigantic ships may become a thing of the past in some parts of Europe. A group called European Waterways has major plans to refurbish some of their hold hotel barges, hoping to get them in the water later this year.

The upgrades to the barges include upgrades to the heating and cooling systems, new soundproofing materials, and plumbing. The small boats only take 12 passengers and the organization expects them to become incredibly popular over the next few months.
