My Review

Having read previous reviews, it was with a fair amount of trepidation that I approached this cruise/show and wondered if I had blown the A$250 I paid.
I was genuinely surprised and impressed with how the evening went.
It started with being picked up from my hotel that was outside the distance designated in the deal - be careful as this may not apply every time and the extra trips in and out on the Metro may not be compensated. The driver for the evening was terrific , and I got a free guided tour as we went back into Paris central.

The cruise was in daylight (which I expected) and the service was adequate - some others have mentioned being a "second-class citizen" and this still was my feeling - though my mains were swapped promptly when the order was mixed up.
I hadn't done a cruise on the Seine before, so it was a good experience. The three course meal was very good and the wine not too bad.
My conclusion was positive - take it if you haven't done a cruise, the meal was good, but may be better value somewhere else.

Moulin Rouge is a MUST SEE. My single seat was given by the Moulin staff and I was fitted in a table to the far side - which was fine so no one was behind me, and I stood for the evening ... at least I could see the bottom of the stage and all the acrobatics that went on down there. The half bottle was a full bottle of champagne ... and I could imagine the waiters getting in the way (standing wasn't a problem).
Definitely see the show.
Pickup and delivery at the end was okay and the evening finished before midnight.
