Warmly welcomed on board, we cruised and soaked up the sights of Paris on a beautifully warm afternoon late November. Could it get any better we thought sipping champagne? Yes- along came the food. The menu is well thought out, cooked and presented to a very high standard. It was faultless! Every mouthful a pleasure. The service on board was... More

We took friends for a birthday celebration and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. My only complaint -- after the welcome drink and appetizer, we didn't receive our wine until dinner was served nearly an hour later. We would have enjoyed sipping wine and watching Paris go by while waiting to eat. All in all, however, it... More

The food is cooked on board, making this cruise a little different than others. And it was very good. Of course it was timed to see the light show on the Tour Eiffel. I was very impressed, and they sang Happy Birthday, many diners joined in and I was only a little bit embarrassed! Great birthday.

We selected the Calife for our dining river cruise having read the reviews of travellers on Trip Advisor. How right they were! It was just going dusk on a warm late summer evening when we boarded the boat and were greeted with a glass of champagne. We cruised up and down the Seine and whilst we had previously enjoyed this...

We liked the food. Not loved it, but liked it. The view? How can you top the Seine at night. There were no bad tables or seats. Everyone had a great view. It was a little noisy, but lots of happy people and 2 small birthday parties. Seemed like a popular place for 6-10 people celebrations.

So we were in Paris for our 50th anniversary and had Jules Vernes for lunch, so decided a romantic dinner cruise would be nice and it was! However, we didn't expect much in the way of food and were delightfully surprised as the food was way above expectations. I would recommend this cruise as it was romantic, with the City... More

If you are looking for an affordable, intimate river cruise, this is the one for you. Very elegant, excellent service and very good food. All tables are along the sides so everyone gets a view (although we were lucky enough to be at the bow of the boat so we had a better view than most). Can be booked online... More
