Croisieres de France (CDF), continues to grow with its new second-hand ship, the 1,828-passenger Horizon, which will start service this coming winter, taking the place of the Blue de France, which has been sold to Saga Cruises.

CDF thus has confirmed a deal with tour operator Thomas Cook to reach the company’s vast network of travel agencies in France.

The network should help CDF sell cabins, as the new ship for the French operator is significantly bigger than current tonnage.
