Bateaux Parisiens Dinner Cruise

Enjoy sumptuous cuisine and delicious wines as you gently float past the wonderful Paris illuminations on this delightful dinner cruise in a fully glass covered boat along the historic River Seine.

Experience stunning night-time views of central Paris through the glass-top of your boat as you enjoy a relaxing cruise along the Seine and a superb 4-course gourmet dinner.

Embark close to the magnificent Eiffel Tower and sail down the River Seine enjoying views of the wonderful landmarks including Les Invalides, the Musee D’Orsay and the imposing Notre Dame Cathedral.

The boat travels as far as the Bibliotheque Nationale De France before returning back to the Eiffel Tower past the Hotel De Ville, The Louvre and the Grand Palais. The boats are entirely glassed over ensuring an unobstructed view of Paris in all its evening glory.

All meals are prepared freshly aboard the boat with attention devoted to quality and presentation while each service option includes a quarter of a bottle of wine and mineral water to accompany your dinner.

A singer and three musicians entertain you on this cruise with a variety of French and international music for listening to or dancing.
