What You Can Expect

Seine River Cruise: Bateaux Parisiens Sightseeing Cruise with Dinner and Live Music

Enjoy the wonderful views of Paris at night from your dinner cruise along the Seine

Your enchanted Paris evening begins near the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll meet your host and climb aboard a luxury Bateaux Parisiens sightseeing boat. Take a seat in the elegant dining room surrounded by large picture windows and enjoy a complimentary glass of welcome Champagne or kir. 
Make your dinner selection from an à la carte menu of classic French cuisine (see Itinerary below for a sample menu). While you savor each of three beautifully presented, gourmet courses, enjoy the vocal and instrumental stylings of onboard musicians for a true bistro atmosphere. French wine and mineral water accompany your meal.
As the boat glides along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed riverbanks of the River Seine, see the famous monuments of Paris bathed in the golden glow of sunset. When darkness falls, admire iconic monuments like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral and Musée d’Orsay illuminated against the night sky. 
Step out into the open-air deck for a breath of fresh evening air and immerse yourself in the romance of the City of Lights. At the end of your 3-hour cruise, step back onto solid ground back at the original departure point.

My friend from our college days and I celebrated our 70th birthdays our birthdays are on the same day! with a dinner cruise on the Seine. What a beautiful way to celebrate with our husbands! Attentive service, delicious food, flowing wine, lovely views of Paris landmarks. And, to top it off, when we disembarked, the Eiffel Tower was shimmering! Highly recommend. Worth every Euro!

The food was SO much better than I expected! The service was excellent too. And although wewerenot at the window, the views were spectacular. I loved being able to go outside, on the deck, to take pictures.

Everyone was so happy and made our dinner cruise extra special. Loved the music and we danced for the first time in years. The food was out of this world!

I would highly recommend the dinner cruise. As a chef de cuisine of classic French foods, I can say the food was excellent fine dining. The ship was comfortable, top-notch and had a great view of the sites. The music was good, but 80s pop is just out-dated you might consider recommending performers that have a repertoire of classic French sounds of the cabarets or street shows or even just a classical guitarist. Any of the later would make the experience more FRENCH. We really enjoyed the over-all though.
