You can choose the space on the ship that best suits your event and your guests. You can also reserve the entire ship. Finally, you can choose the destination of your cruise on the Garonne or the Dordogne, your stops and visits, or you may choose to enjoy your daytime or evening event at the dock facing the Place de la Bourse, the most beautiful panoramic view of Bordeaux.
