CYCLING & WALKING
Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the on board bicycles as often as they like. Most people choose to disembark the barge at a lock and then visit local villages and then return to the canal and meet the barge a little further along. The barge travels very slowly and therefore "catch up" will not be a problem.
Rendez-vous is wired for 220/240 volts and not 110 volts (possibly apart from all the bathrooms which are equipped with 110v plugs for shaving). We suggest you bring adapters for your particular appliance. If you wish to use an electrical appliance on board, please ask one of the crew when you arrive on board to ensure that it is suitable to the barge's electrical system. We cannot be held responsible for unforeseen voltage fluctuations which sometimes occur when swapping from one voltage system to another.
EXCURSIONS FOR CHARTER GROUPS
If you are chartering, the itinerary can be adapted to suit your group's particular needs. If an excursion is within a reasonable distance of the barge, inquire and we will do everything we can to arrange it. Please advise Paradise Connections well in advance.
FOR THOSE NOT WISHING TO ATTEND EXCURSIONS
You are welcome to stay behind on the barge if you would like. You can use the bikes, go for a walk or just sit on the shaded sundeck or in the spa pool with a glass of wine.

PASSENGERS WITH MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS

Our barges have a strict non-smoking policy. We ask smokers not to smoke inside the barge as this may create an offence to your shipmates. Smoking is categorically not permitted in the cabins for safety reasons. If you would like to smoke we request that you smoke outside on deck away from fellow passengers.
