Meals on board are offered in a single sitting and feature French and international cuisine. Complimentary wine, beer, fruit juice and coffee are offered with lunch and dinner.
There is a spacious lounge with bar, a restaurant, sun deck with loungers and parasols, a barbecue deck and a Jacuzzi at the prow of the barge. Bicycles are available for passengers to use.
