PRINCESSE D’AQUITAINE Ship Review
PRINCESSE D’AQUITAINE Overview
Sailing the Gironde River, CroisiEurope’s Princesse d’Aquitaine was constructed in 2001 and refurbished in 2011. At 361 feet in length, she can accommodate 138 passengers in 69 staterooms for an intimate and personable river cruising experience.
PRINCESSE D’AQUITAINE Staterooms
Princesse d’Aquitaine’s 69 staterooms are nearly identical in size and amenities. Their main differences lie in their physical placement on the ship’s two passenger decks.
Each stateroom includes a private bathroom with shower, toilet and sink/vanity area; a hairdryer, personal safe and a satellite television set.
While each stateroom offers large picture windows of the gorgeous Gironde, it is worth noting that staterooms aboard Princesse d’Aquitaine do not feature French balconies.
