Suggest a River Cruise on 14th July for firework views

Hi

Will be in Paris around 14th July and would like to be able to see the fireworks show but don't want to have to wait for 5+ hours in the one spot just to see the show.

Can anyone suggest a good romantic river cruise with dinner that allows you to see the fireworks show.

I did look at DON JUAN II cruise and really liked it but appears to be sold out for the 14th July.

A few years ago, we took a dinner cruise on 14 July with Bateaux Parisiens. You pay extra to sit near a window and more to sit in the front of the boat. During dinner, a photographer comes around to take your picture, available for purchase at the end of the trip. The boat docked very close to the Eiffel Tower, just in time for the fireworks, and everyone crowded onto the little deck outside to get a better view - a definite problem, if you are not very tall. Afterwards, there was a band, and some people had a good time dancing.

We felt it was expensive - especially given the quality of the food and the over-crowded deck thing - but it was a special occasion, so we made the most of it.

Calife may be doing a special cruise that night. I did email them to ask. They normally range 60-80 euros per person( and they make the food onboard,, unlike many that just bring in and reheat food) but for that night they are going to charge 180 euros per person and they are not taking reservations till June.. they are taking a list though now.. they are waiting to see if they will book the whole ship for an event so won;t confirm now if they are going to be open for the public that night.
