Nice boat ride

We took this cruise on New Years Eve, we did the 1 1/2 hour ealier cruise. The boarding spot was easy to find and the boat pulled up at exactly 1830 hrs as indicated. Boarding was a little slow, however was uneventful. We sat down and the food service started almost immiedately after the boat... read more

My sister and I decided to book a weekend away in Paris last weekend and it was wonderful. On our last evening we booked to go up the Eiffel Tower (which although windy and wet was still a great experience) and this dinner cruise. We thought we'd splash out and book the Champagne dinner. It was easy to book and... More

This was the best New Year ever. The food, the company, the staff and entertainment. It was well worth the money. We met some fab people on board. I would definitely do this again.

Booked the 9pm dinner cruise for 1st Jan 2016. The boat itself is a little hard to find if you don't know Paris too well and the directions on the map are not the best as knowing which bridge to find it at can be a little confusing. Dinner overall was lovely and didn't feel too rushed even though the... More

We booked same day for the 6:30 dinner cruise on a Sunday. We received online confirmation that we presented without issue, via a smartphone, as we had no means of printing. The boat arrived at embarkation as scheduled and we were quickly seated by a window where our waiter took specifics about our order. We departed as scheduled and food... More

We went on the boat 4 yars ago- the menu was the same- except- less taste and tougher steak. We had good memories of the last time so we decide to go again. We ordered the Admiral meal and upgraded to premium seating. It says it includes a drink (apratif) before dinner- NO- only if you take there crappy rum... More

I booked it through France Tourisme and chose the Dinner Cruise Amiral which consist of 3 courses. We thoroughly enjoyed the gastronomic dinner. Unfortunately since the Seine River is quite low, we don't have a good view of the attractions when seated and it was too cold to brave the outside. We wanted to do the dinner cruise at 6:30pm...

What a disappointment. The boat was chosen based on "fresh produce cooked by our own chef". The starter was ok if uninspiring but the main course was a disaster. The food was cold and sent back. It was returned with the sauce burnt on the plate BUT the food was still cold. The veal was stringy with too much connective... More

Our Chef has been appointed "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" (France Best Skilled Worker) and even if we do not aim at Michelin Star restaurants it is rare to read such comments.

This is a wonderful way to see Paris, along the banks of the river Seine, by night, while having an elegant, multiple course French meal. I do this every year, especially when friends join me in Paris. The boat is beautiful inside and the views of Paris are nothing short of magical. There are a couple of main entrée choices... More
