Full description
Take a night cruise on the River Seine and see Paris illuminated for the night. Listen to the on board audio-guide commentary (available in 14 languages) to learn more about the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and other attractions. A live guide will provide information about events in Paris along the way.

Go direct to the boarding area to board one of the famous “Bateaux Parisiens” pleasure boats. Be welcomed onboard with a smile as you embark on your cruise from the foot of the Eiffel Tower. See a succession of floodlit bridges and monuments as you listen to the commentary and background music.

Glide gently through the Paris of today and yesterday as you enjoy panoramic views from the classic trimaran, with terrace and exterior passageways. Marvel at the illuminated sights such as the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, and Musée d’Orsay. See the ghastly gargoyles of Notre Dame, pass the imposing façade of the Louvre Museum, Grand Palais, and many more sites.
