The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was excellent, the views were very nice. The only thing that could have been better was the app used to tell you what you were seeing. I felt the descriptions were a bit scanty and wasn't always sure which building I was looking at.

Overall a must do!

We loved our dinner cruise on the Seine. It was overall great but a few comments: The check in location is not really marked well but we were able to find and meet up with fellow cruisers by following the directions given - it is literally across the street from Musee d'Orsay. Once on board we were greeted and quickly brought to our seats. We felt like the service was fine if a bit pushy for us to purchase extras - photos, drinks, etc. Don't get tricked into paying for drinks or even water... one glass of wine is included but if you want water, you must specify tap, or you will be charged 6 euros for Evian! Wifi on board is advertised but was not available for our cruise. The food was pretty good, better than we were expecting. But the whole experience was for the views, not the meal! Seeing everything all lit up was just stunning - it made the entire experience worthwhile. I honestly consider this a must-do in Paris. Very romantic and a great way to end the day. We loved it!

A much smaller boat than others with great views of the city

About 1/3 size of the other boat this felt like a much more pleasant experience. Food was good not great but as best one could expect from crowd prepared food The views were awesome. The tour has no guide so don’t expect anyone to give you a history lesson on Paris or the Seine. All in all a really good value and relaxing.
