My review is also for the 14th July 2014 only. While I agree with the other reviewers that we missed a very large part of the fireworks show, because of boat location, and the fact that the total coverage of the trip was reduced on the Seine. The part which we faced ( a group of 7) the most trouble... More

The only thing we would do is to recommend in writing or over the phone to... More

This review only concerns the special 14th July dinner-cruise coinciding with the firework display at 11pm from Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower. This cruise is 60-70 Euros more expensive than the usual dinner-cruise due to it being 14th July. The positive side: the food and wine were good, the staff efficient and friendly and the dining space comforatble and smart.... More

Sorry for your dissppointemnt. The cruise on July 14th is very special due to the Fireworks and the security measures on the Seine river. One of our guests was not on time this evening but insisted to embark as our family was already on board causing a late departure (20:48 instead of 20:30). In this case it was not possible... More

We were visiting Paris and decided to have dinner on this boat cruise that passed through Paris along the Seine. Theoretically, there couldn't have been a better place to have a romantic dinner.. boy were we wrong! For the amount of money we spent it was incomprehensible that the food could be this bad. First we were seated in the... More

Had a bunch of Americans to show Paris in 2 days, thought this cruise would be perfect, the staff were lovely but the food was appalling and even though we were on the Seine there was no narration of the cruise, we had no idea where we were !

Sorry you have not enjoyed. the cruise. In your commen we understand what has been disppointing ithe lack of narration, but none of the dinner cruise on the Seine have narration, it would not fit the ambiance of a dinner. To provide informations though we offer a leaflet with the main monuments you see during the cruise. The food is... More

This is the second time we've done this cruise. The last time being in the winter. It all seemed a bit rushed this time, the boat was half empty. We hadn't finished the cocktails before the starters and the wine arrived. The dinner wasn't hot more warm. The desserts were lovely, but not as impressive as the previous time. We... More

Boat trip: good, the trip is long , the boat is going fast enough you can make a full trip and discover all the monuments of Paris, most of the others companies propose mainly short trip, and you can't discover some of the main monuments. Table: most of the table are not in front row to the river, but dispatched... More

First of all the parking was hard to find and we parked elsewhere to look for the dock. There were no clear signs and boats everywhere but the right one was situated at a dock in the middle of the river. Our boarding finished which a sprinting match that nearly the last one for my poor 75 year old mother!... More

I was surprised by the amount of reviews that have raved about the food and the service as we found those elements to be the least satisfactory of our visit. We forked out for the top selection of food and wine and felt that we were part of a pre-packaged production line with average meals and perfunctory service. The boat... More
