Is this the alternative to a cruise holiday?

A new floating hot tub is giving a whole new meaning to river cruising.
Introducing the Hot Tug, a Dutch creation from a cutting edge company which is already getting lots of interest from locals and tourists alike.
Heated by a wood burning stove, the Hot Tug holds 2,000 litres of water at a balmy 38C temperature, regardless of the outside water temperature.
The boat comfortably seats six to eight people. Speaking on ABC News, sales manager Jochem Karstanje said of de Bruijn: 'His dream was to combine his passion for boats and something for public spaces, and he loved to go in a hot tub. So for him, it was obvious."
It's available to rent or buy. The top version, which includes the boat, a stainless steel wood burning heater, an electric engine, batteries and a charger, costs around £13,000, while a more modest model costs £7,000. Visit hottug.nl for more.
