We booked this dinner cruise for our anniversary through the hotel we were staying at. It was a bit pricey with no drinks included but it was a special treat for us. We were sitting at an inside table and we asked about a window table to which we were informed it was €15 extra per person to which we... More

Thanks very much for your visit and your comment. We are very happy you enjoyed it. As far as prices are concerned, we do our best to keep them as low as possible for our dinner cruises which usually (depending on the formula you take) include drinks, as for the drinks you can buy on board. For example coffee is... More

We booked a Bastille day cruise on the Seine on the boat. It sailed at 8 and took us for a lovely cruise down the Seine River. The meal was outstanding and the menu was specially created for this trip. The meal started with a glass of champagne followed by a Fois Gras starter that was exceptional. The main course... More

Not a good start, at least make directions to the boat clearer, tried calling but they could not speak English,great ! Allow extra time to find it. Great trip with lovely evening view of Paris. Food is horrible, microwave style pasta with the hard edges, if you know what i mean. It was all reheat food or pre prepared food... More

The night time cruise itself was very nice, but we were disappointed with the food for the added cost. The only two main course options included with our fare were duck and fish. A steak option was also available for 10 euro more. Appetizers were unrecognizable which was a little unsettling. I would still highly recommend a Seine River cruise,... More

I was looking forward to the trip and had mixed feelings getting off. The trip itself is beautiful and we left in light and came back in the dark so it was nice to see Paris from both perspectives. It is quite busy with people going up an down to the deck to see the view and smoke so it... More

HIghly disappointed. The boat was not in front of the Eiffel tower but on the side and behind the double decker Birhakeim bridge with an illuminated metro passing every 2 minutes. Highly distracting and far from a good view. Being on the side we missed the blue red and white illumination of the tower which was only shown on its... More

Sorry for this bad experience, but we would like to explain what happened. We are the 3rd company in Paris, we have access to all the information and communicate with our clients immediately as long as we have information. On this particular occasion the French National Police decided at the last moment without noticing us or any authority to close... More

I had a really terrible experience. The food was a really terrible and made me very sick. I ended up puking in the middle of the night. And they try to charge you 15 euro per person extra to sit by a window.

This was a birthday dinner for me with my parents and the experience could not have been better. The boat was done up really nicely, and people were dressed from fairly casual to quite fancy, all of which was fine. I would recommend paying slightly more when you book the cruise to include water, wine and coffee in with your... More

Sir sorry you have been disappointed by our restauration. We do our best to offer the best price for 2h-dinner-cruises on the Seine river. No fresh water available on cruising boats on the Seine but our 50cl bottles go for €5 less than in a Parisian coffee. You had taken the formula Fracasse without the drinks, so drinks, fresh or...

I booked this trip to celebrate my wife's special birthday and we were not disappointed. The setting was romantic, staff courteous and efficient and we had an outstanding meal with a fillet steak that you could have carved with a fork. The weather was good so the fact there was no cover on embarking was not an issue - if... More
