What To Expect

Your Paris evening begins near the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll meet your host and climb aboard a luxury Bateaux Parisiens sightseeing boat. Take a seat in the elegant dining room surrounded by large windows and enjoy a complimentary glass of welcome Champagne.

Make your dinner selection from an à la carte menu of classic French cuisine (see Itinerary below for a sample menu). While you savor each of the three gourmet courses, enjoy the vocal and instrumental stylings of onboard musicians for a true bistro atmosphere. French wine and mineral water accompany your meal.

As the boat glides along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed riverbanks of the Seine River, see the famous monuments of Paris bathed in the golden glow of sunset. When darkness falls, admire monuments like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Ile de la Cité, and Musée d’Orsay illuminated against the night sky. 

Step out into the open-air deck for a breath of fresh evening air and immerse yourself in the romance of the City of Lights. At the end of your cruise, step back onto solid ground back at the original departure point.

The ship was beautiful. The meal was excellent and the views were great. Overall an excellent experience.
Absolutely a must do in Paris
Rodney_C, Jan 2023
We took this cruise on our last night in Paris. January in Paris was very cold. We selected the Premier dinner service and had a beautiful window side table. I had been worried about the windows fogging and very pleased to say that was not the case at all. Our view was beautiful and very warm. The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive! I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting Paris as a must do!
Fantastic night.

Dinner cruise - Beautiful experience
Laura_T, Jan 2023
We did the dinner night cruise which I highly recommend as the lighting on the buildings made the tour even more spectacular. Staff and service were amazing always pointing out the attractions for photo opportunities and glasses were never left empty. The boat was beautiful and the atmosphere was very high end. We booked a window seat that I would highly recommend as we had amazing views.
Awkward at best?
Kassi_H, Jan 2023
Wouldn’t recommend. The food was okay, and the views were great but overall it was an uncomfortable experience. When my friend and I first arrived and were seated, someone from the staff approached our table and started taking my coat off for me (I thought it was strange because they didn’t do that for anyone else) but what made it so inappropriate was that he then grabbed my shoulders and forced them back to “correct” my posture, while touching my back in a somewhat sexual way. We both tried to make the best of it but felt pretty uncomfortable for the rest of the evening.

This was worth every moment! The entertainer was Awesome! The food was delicious! The dessert was heaven Thank you
Good not Great
Sharon_D, Jan 2023
The boat, cruise and music were all great. However, the food was not quite the quality we anticipated for the price. It had a very catered feel and choices were limited (3-4 choices per course). If done again, I might prefer to spend the money on a great restaurant with excellent food and do a boat cruise that is less expensive (like the Bateaux Mouche).
Excellent trip
Anton_H, Jan 2023
Wonderful views of the major monuments and the food was excellent from appetizer to dessert. Very crowded though, so be sure to book well in advance.
Rushed and rude!
Shirley_H, Jan 2023
Dinner was rushed, realized after we never received our cheese course. Waiter started out rude and abrupt and after I mimicked her rude reply and said “really?” She corrected herself. The coat check was closed, very tight and uncomfortable having dinner with coats on our chairs. I have taken this cruise twice before but operates seemed to have changed in four years. I would never book with them again.

This was an amazing experience! The food, views and entertainment were all first-class! I would absolutely do this experience again.
Highly recommended!
Marissa_J, Jan 2023
Best intro to Paris ever! This was my third time in Paris but my boyfriend's first, and we did this the night of our arrival. He and I both absolutely loved it--the service, the music, the food, and the scenery! You won't regret this.
A must do
Sanae_H, Jan 2023
What a great night, there’s not much more to beyond that. Definitely a Paris must do and the singer on board rocked it.
See Paris at night from the comfort of a boat.
Diane_L, Jan 2023
Great way to see iconic sights in Paris. The atmosphere was lovely and the food very good. Highly recommend!
Easy and charming last night in Paris
Mary_M, Jan 2023
The views along the river, both famous sites and other party and house boats were great. Seeing people dancing in parks along the bank was also very romantic. Our server was a charming woman and very attentive and professional. The dinner was surprisingly good for the circumstances. It was an easy, lovely evening for our last night in Paris.
A dreamy evening
