What You Can Expect

Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Dinner Cruise

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.

Out of all the things we did on our 10-day trip to Europe - this was the MOST magical! The French singer on this boat sang like an angel - I am SERIOUS! As the beautiful boat slowly moved through this French canal, I cried. The city sights were amazing as we listened to the live music. The food was good too.
