More expensive than other cruises but worth it. We had the van pick us up which saved a lot of hassle, and more importantly you get there early so they can start serving you without rushing. We upgraded to a front window table for two. They let us split two red wines instead of one red and one white which was great, and wine was the best we've had so far. Great choice of food, only comment is the side dish (green mashed potatoes with beans) while creative was a little too starchy. Everything else from appetizer to dessert was a treat. Great view of the city at night, we were worried about taking pictures because of the glass but since it was dark and the boat was moving most cameras couldn't get pictures anyway. Besides, weather threatened rain and it was better being indoors. Entertainment was cheesy but pleasant, singer wandered through the ship in an orange tuxedo like a lounge lizard, and we got a laugh as he tried to cover Micheal Jackson but otherwise was good atmosphere music (we were in front so volume was fine). the cruise was the highlight of our Paris visit, I was concerned I was overpaying but since this was our first visit I didn't want to take the chance on disappointment and I was pleased. Would do again next time around.

This was another highlight of my trip. This may be considered very touristy, but my son, his wife and I had a fun time. We took advantage of the shuttle service which was prompt and the driver very friendly.
The view we had on the cruise was great. We had a great table seating, and we saw many interesting sights along the way, including large groups of people listening to music and dancing along the Seine. The weather was nice as well. We enjoyed the food, and the service. It ended at the Eiffel Tower when the lights were just about to begin sparkling. WOW! Very impressive and memorable.

It was our first night in Paris and -- I know you don't control the weather--a beautiful evening. Our driver, Max, was prompt and very courteous. The boat was very nice, the food very good and some extended time between courses just gave us more time to enjoy the scenery. Your entertainment was also very nice and added to the ambience. Just memorable to pull back into the dock just as the Eiffel Tower is setting off its extravaganza of flashing lights! Not an inexpensive tour but just great.

This was a great time for me and my wife from the beginning being picked up at our hotel till the end being delivered back to our hotel. The food was excellent, the views incrediable. Being able to see the river by day and by night. The entertainment was also wonderful. I recommend this to all my friends.

Beautiful boat, excellent service and food. Plenty of wine and Champagne which was great. Was a bit worried the entertainment would be OTT/cabaret style and overshadow the evening but the female singer fitted the evening perfectly. And all with amazing back drop of the river Seine and stunning monuments and architecture. This was definitely a major highlight of our visit and i can see why it's so popular. I also heard it is top of the list of things Parisiens themselves would like to do, which speaks volumes. Thank you Bateaux Parisien and Viator :0)

It was our first night in Paris and this was the best way to spend it. The views were spectacular, our waiter was delightful, and the food was exceptional. Even our driver there was amazing. We even requested him for the next nights tour.

We booked the premier class and the most expensive menu and everything was excellent. Pick-up on time, service excellent, food and wine excellent, table for 2 next to a huge window with beautiful Paris by night, memorable. Reasonably expensive but worth every cent.

The food was great! I would recommend a private table if you can do it..
