Life is to be enjoyed. It is a gift of boundless magnificence and the French coined a phrase to describe such a feeling – joie de vivre. For our staff, joie de vivre is both our mission and our muse. To travel America by riverboat is a transformative experience and to do so in the inimitable style of French America Line is a joy beyond imagination.
Expect an abundance of small touches that make each day exceptional. Our gesture of complimentary free-flowing hand-selected spirits, wines, and beers, in addition to illy® coffees, Dammann Frères® loose-leaf teas, soft drinks, and Natura® sparkling and still water creates a relaxed atmosphere. The casual ambiance onboard is infused with a distinctive French flair softened by the warm hospitality of the South. With only 75 suites and staterooms, the Louisiane is small enough to cruise waterways that larger riverboats cannot and intimate enough that our unobtrusive staff will quickly learn your name and preferences. Travel with those of like mind, for whom an elegant voyage through America
is as treasured a gift for them as it is for you.
Fresh from a multi-million dollar refurbishment, the Louisiane was meticulously designed for boutique cruises. From her open decks, watch charming towns slip past as you relax with a mint julep. In The Veranda, our casual bistro, walls of windows embrace the river views. Fine dining is our hallmark and nowhere is this more evident than in The Crescent Room, the glittering stage for acclaimed Chef de Cuisine Regina Charboneau’s Southern and Continental creations.
With unique and exclusive live entertainment, The Crescent Room transforms into a cabaret each evening while our intimate lounges provide delightful interludes. Then seek solitude in some of the most elegant suites and staterooms on any river vessel and enter a world designed with comfort in mind.
With indulgent accommodations, what we humbly believe is the finest cuisine on the river, gracious service and a host of complimentary amenities, sailing with French America Line is a singular experience that will stay with you long after your voyage has concluded.
