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.

This was truly a wonderful experience! Bateaux Parisiens is a first rate company. Everything was perfect. The boat was attractive and comfortable. The food and wine were excellent. The service was outstanding. Even though we had a rainy night, we still saw all the sights and lights and it was so much fun. We were lucky because a day or two later, the boat trips were suspended because of the floods. If we go back to Paris, we would definitely book this tour again.

We took this tour on a Sunday evening in late May. It started raining just after we got on board, but the rain did not diminish the experience at all. The boat was totally enclosed with all glass sides and roof. The food was surprisingly good, and the singer and band were also excellent, and performed at a volume that it was still easy to carry on a conversation while watching the sights of Paris go by. Wait staff was very attentive from offering the aperitif on arrival, explaining the menu items and taking orders, and refilling wine glasses often. Really glad we took this trip, especially as the Seine was flooded a few days later and became un-navigable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening on the Seine River Cruise. The staff was courteous and professional and the food was excellent. Seeing the sights along the Seine at night was a wonderful experience, especially viewing the Eiffel Tower in all its glory. Although the location may be easily accessed by the Metro, we used taxis both to and from, and they were readily available at the dock location. A wonderful evening!

Superb evening on board - booked the standard menu - WOW delicious, all 3 course choices were great - food superb, seat at the window, waiter and waitress service was brilliant offering info on the locations as we were passing. On board entertainment was very good too. The evening was beautiful, returning to the Eiffel Tower illuminated was a spectacular sight. Excellent value for money - definitely will do it again.

What part of perfect would you like. If you are looking for an amazing experience for yourself or a gift for someone very special take this Cruise. We were lucky enough to to receive it as a gift and even the little bit of rain couldn't dampen our experience. The menu offered something for everyone, every dish reached our table at the ideal temperature by waitstaff who were both friendly and efficient, the capacity on board was comfortable and from start to finish we were made to feel special.
