5 things to bring on a Seine river cruise

The Seine might be one of the world's most scenic urban rivers, flanked by exquisite monuments such as Notre Dame and the Arc de Triomphe. A cruise is the best way to enjoy it as long as you don't forget anything essential! Here's what to pack.

Windproof jacket

Windproof jacket

Even if all's calm on the City of Love's streets, its river is exposed and highly susceptible to strong winds. Even in summer you might need a good jacket!

Sun screen

Again, the Seine is exposed and so are you. If you're not seeing the sights by night, you'll want to see them on a sunny day. Keep yourself protected!

Camera

Many of Paris' most famous sights can be seen by boat, opening the door to some fantastic photo opportunities. If you have them, enhance the experience by bringing binoculars too!

Sandwiches

Unless you're taking a dinner cruise of course! But even then you should think about bringing your own water bottle.

A perfect way to watch the sunset on the Seine

I had an absolutely fantastic night on this cruise in Paris. My expectations weren’t great as I thought it was a bit touristy however I was blown away. The food was excellent, the cruise was stunning, even the music was well selected. The staff were really good too

The lady named Paula at your Call Centre. She was excellent.

I missed my booking. Was very confusing to find the meeting point. But Paula came to the rescue and rescheduled. Was a great cruise but she saved the day.

Great way to get around some of the attractions around Paris.

This hop on, hop off ‘taxi’ boat is the perfect way to see some of the sites of Paris from the river. Buy an all day ticket or as we did for two days and off you go. Just turn up and jump on and off.

Beautiful, night-light lit cruise down the Seine River.

Beautiful, night-light lit cruise down the Seine River. Well organized, comfortable with great narration highlighting facts and special information about the buildings. It's a MUST DO and highly recommended.

Paris: 1-Hour Illuminations River Cruise Reviewed by

Three loops in Paris provides all encompassing view of city.

I was quite please with the flexibility of the schedule and appreciated the forth rightness of the agent forecasting a potential closure of Blue route due to protesters on Saturday. Though it didn’t happen an offer to add a day was very thoughtful and appreciated. I recommend taking 3 days for Hop on Hop off and adding the River Cruise prior to evening near the Eiffel Tower. You will be thankful as we were!
