About this ship: Allure

About the ship
The Allure started cruising in 1998. Jossie Verkerk, the former owner, redesigned the barge with its sleek lines herself and turned it into a comfortable and friendly passenger barge. From that moment on, the Allure has been successfully hosting boat and bike tours in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Since 2011 the Allure has a new owner: Martien van de Velde. He operates the Allure with new élan. Under his management, the Allure still is a very popular small river barge for boat and bike tours.

Description of the cabins
The Allure has ten comfortable cabins. One double cabin (8 m² – 68 sq.ft.) with a double bed and nine twin cabins (8 m² – 86 sq.ft.) with two single beds which can be set together in most cabins. In two cabins there is the possibility to place a bunk bed for children. Each cabin has a private shower, toilet and basin. Windows can be opened and the cabins have central heating. Furthermore, you will find a mini safe and hair dryer in each cabin. The corridor is air-conditioned, thus also cooling the cabins.
