What You Can Expect

Bateaux Parisiens Dinner Cruise on the Seine

See Paris' top city attractions and enjoy a delicious dinner

Begin this dinner cruise evening with hotel pickup from your central Paris lodging in the early evening and enjoy the sights as you drive to the boat launch situated at the base of the glittering Eiffel Tower. Climb aboard the awaiting vessel and settle in for a memorable city tour.

The river cruise begins along the left bank, where you'll float past the  Musée d'Orsay, the Louvre Museum, the Place de la Concorde and Notre Dame Cathedral. The boat doubles back at the Île Saint-Louis to begin the return trip, during which you'll glide along the right bank for a different vantage point.

There are three seating plans to choose from, depending on how many people are in your group and where you'd prefer to sit. Each boat has a glass roof and panoramic windows, giving passengers glorious views in nearly every direction of the illuminated city from any seat on board.

'Service Etoile' plans are for groups of six to eight people, with tables situated in the middle of the boat, and come with an apéritif upon boarding followed by snacks and wine, coffee and mineral water. 'Service Privilege' plans are for groups of up to four people, with tables near a window, and come with an apéritif, wine, coffee and mineral water. 'Service Premiere' plans are for groups of up to eight people, with tables located at the front of the boat. These plans get priority boarding access at the pier, and come with an apéritif upon boarding followed by snacks and wine, coffee and mineral water.

All of the seating plans include a delicious 3-course meal prepared on board the boat by Académie culinaire de France Chef Gras and his talented team. As you dine, enjoy atmospheric music from an on-board band to complete the scene. See the Itinerary section below for a sample menu.

Your dinner cruise concludes after three hours on the Seine, at which point you'll disembark at the same place you started your evening. Climb back into the awaiting vehicle for the return trip to your Paris hotel.

From our prompt pickup at our hotel...Our evening on the Crysyal II was amazing Our table was perfect The food was so scrumptious! Service was spot on and the cruise itself was much better than the hour-long one we had been on on a previous trip to Paris. On our return we would certainly do this again and will very happily recommend it to our travelling friends

The trip was excellent and to be recommended despite its high price
The advertised description was misleading and confusing and there was no real understanding of the offer when a query was made. The pick up arrangements were very poor. The dress code business was a joke and impossible for them to control. Fortunately it improved dramatically from the gangway onward!

A stunning, if expensive evening with great food, wonderfully friendly staff on board, and a perfectly clear evening in which to enjoy all the fabulous sights on the Seine from the front, glass covered section of the bateaux.
