This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the stunning English countryside, heading to a new place of interest each day in a very comfortable all-inclusive hotel on the water. Edward Elgar is a river cruise boat which offers a cruise for 22, starting and finishing near Gloucester - a unique choice for multi-generation families and friends, either fancying a 7-day holiday or a weekend break to honour a special occasion. There are a variety of cruises on offer which include travel on the Gloucester Ship Canal and the River Severn, with daily stop-offs and a wide range of excursions to destinations such as the Cotswolds, Slimbridge and Worcester. Exclusive use is a popular option for getting loved ones together to celebrate a big birthday or anniversary.
The philosophy behind an Edward Elgar river boat cruise is a stress-free and convenient experience from start to finish. The boat crew will help to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The steward will greet you on arrival and take your luggage to the cabin so that you can take in your new surroundings and perhaps head to the restaurant for a welcome drink and the Captain's cocktail party. The Captain is responsible for piloting the boat but also provides commentary and useful information as the journey unfolds. An on-board chef cooks up three delicious meals daily, so you don't have to do a thing.
The restaurant is a bright space where everyone can gather for meals together and enjoy fabulous views through large windows. Maybe pop into the bar after dinner and make the most of the wide range of drinks and spirits included in your package, watching the free live entertainment or taking part in games and quizzes provided. The upper viewing deck is a glorious spot to savour the beautiful riverscape and watch the world go by.
Cabins are very comfy spaces, all having twin beds with good quality mattresses and toppers with extra blankets for comfort. There is a window in each although they cannot be open for health and safety reasons. However don't worry about being too hot or cold as Edward Elgar has central heating and air conditioning. All have en suite shower rooms with WC.
Please enquire about our rates for cruises. Deposit of £200 per cabin is required to secure your booking with the balance due 60 days before arrival. It is largely adult only accommodation unless the boat is booked as exclusive hire when children 7 or older are allowed.
