We took this cruise on July 5th, a gift from our daughter and son in law. It was wonderful from start to finish - efficient taxi pick-up from our hotel, great waiter service and fabulous food. Even the weather was kind, and it was fantastic to see the sights we had visited during the day in a different context in the evening light, and ultimately by night. The Eiffel Tower in particular was spectacular. We would thoroughly recommend this - it was a real highlight of our short break in beautiful Paris.
