Overview

Make the most of your time in Paris with a combination of a cruise on the Seine and a 3-course dinner. This 75-minute dinner cruise allows you to see the main attractions of the City of Lights while you enjoy a casual meal. Relax into a comfortable armchair facing one of the boat's windows, the better to take in the view, and watch sights like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre, Place de la Concorde and Eiffel Tower drift by. Upgrade the experience to include wine or Champagne with dinner.
  • 75-minute Seine River cruise with dinner
  • See Paris’ illuminated waterfront sights in a casual setting
  • Depart from Ile de la Cité and glide past Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower
  • Enjoy a 3-course dinner at your window-facing table
  • Upgrade to include wine or Champagne with your meal
Make your way to the Ile de la Cité in the very center of historic Paris to climb aboard a sightseeing boat for a 75-minute cruise. Enjoy the sights from the comfort of a window-facing armchair. Refer to a travel booklet for information on what you're seeing on the banks of the Seine, or simply take in the view.
Pass some of Paris' main attractions on the cruise, including the Louvre Museum, Musée d’Orsay, Hôtel de Ville, Place de la Concorde, Notre Dame Cathedral and the iconic Eiffel Tower. Admire these landmarks illuminated against the night sky.
During the cruise, enjoy a 3-course meal including a foie gras starter, a main course of fish and a pair of desserts. Upgrade your dinner experience to include wine or Champagne.
Your dinner cruise lasts 75 minutes, after which you'll be brought back to the starting point at  Ile de la Cité where you'll disembark and continue your evening in Paris.
Please note: The cruise route changes from November to April because of high water levels on the river. During this time, the cruise begins and ends near the Eiffel Tower and passes fewer attractions.

While a dinner cruise on The Seine sounds romantic this is definitely not. Maybe I expected too much. You board the boat and are seated you wait until all guests are boarded before seeing a server. I had gone to the bar even to order our table a round of cocktails and was told to return to my seat and someone would be with me momentarily. So you sit listening to outdated music that is not jazz, or French standards (or even standards at all) but 70's (not disco but far from dinner music).After about 15 minutes (from being seated) finally someone shows up to hand you a menu (a choice of 2 entrees) everything else is pre-set and still have not been offered a drink. Upon receiving the menu we requested a pre-dinner cocktail it was finally served when the appetizer was served by the waiter. As the boat started to travel the lights allowing the staff to see (understandable) were reflecting in the window glass making more of an impression and dimming the view of the Eiffel Tower which was fully lit. Making picture taking near impossible.The food is prepared off site and appears to only be plated on the boat, food is little more than airline food on a plate.The waiters (possibly understaffed) since you only see them when passing out food or collecting dirty plates do not have time to give you "real service". While trying to take pictures I was told I could go to the upper deck and get a better picture but I was worried if I did I would miss the server as they strolled through picking up plates or distributing the next course.The cruise lasts approximately 90 minutes and by the end I was ready to get off.Some things they could do to make the experience better. Have servers ready to attend to customers as soon as they board for pre-dinner cocktails, change the music to a little more "French" inspired, dimming of the lights or a different kind where you have an unobstructed view of the sites. I do realize this is a "tourist" venture (as everyone in our seated area were tourists) but with a few "tweeks" could have been so much more.Personally for the length of this cruise I would have preferred a pre-dinner cocktail cruise, board us have a drink or two down the Seine and then disembarked and went somewhere else for dinner. Would this have been better had I taken the later cruise? Maybe, or maybe at another time of the years when the sun sets later so we could have been here at dusk. Will I go again? Probably BUT will do some homework to see other options.

Overall a good experience. The food was great, just a bit rushed as it was a three course meal in 75 mins!! There was also a photographer who needs your attention too, so just too much going on in the time that you have on board. Really great view of Paris though.

I was impressed with how modern and nicely furnished the boat was. The seats are very comfy and all look out to the water which was great. Also there's nice little slide in/out tables in front of you for eating which is great. The food I was not expecting to be good and so there for I was a bit surprised that it was not that bad...this is not a meal to remember or anything like that but it will do. The wine was not too bad either and definitely we drank it all.

Overall a really good experience and a great way to see the sights of Paris. The food whilst enjoyable wasn’t to the taste of one of our group. A word of warning for ladies, getting onto the boat in heels is challenging especially in wet weather. Overall we would do this again

So Bad. Cold food and lots of bone in the duck not edible at all we were not the only ones that sent food back. Service was horrible we paid extra for champagne but the bottle was taken away before we had finished itwe suspect that this was because we had the latest cruise and the crew wanted to go home The cruise left late and the trip felt rushed.

Really enjoyable and the food was really good, if possible however I would say to try to get the one where you can see the Eiffel Tower is lite up. I really enjoyed it because it was an experience that is not offered many places and doing it while having a nice dinner and facing outwards the entire time so everybody has a great seat!
