FRENCH river cruise operator Le Boat is excited to announce its Canal Du Midi services are back on track after officially opening for the 2019 cruise season last month.

The company worked alongside French waterways manager Voies Navigables de France (VNF) to clean up the river after it flooded last October, with the French authority investing more than 4 million into restoring the popular waterway back to its former glory.

The river, which comprises of more than 240km of scenic waterways connecting the Atlantic to the Mediterranean accounts for 30% of French river tourist traffic during peak tourist seasons.

Le Boat has also committed to donating a further 3 million into the region to help improve facilities for customers and staff, along with a raft of other improvements to the cruise operator’s fleet.
