You need to plan at least 30 minutes in line before the time you want to ride in the cruise or you will have to wait for the next ride out. Make sure you have your ticket and the right platoon number, there are people near the boat entrance that are willing to assist you. We rode on the 7:00 pm standing outside on the side deck and it was a little chilly, you can barely hear the person speaking about the different buildings and area. Overall the cruise on the seine river was enjoyable and worth the money spent.

The light ride is highly recommended. You experience Paris from a different perspective. The tours are well organized. Unfortunately, there was no information for the mobile phone audio guide advertised, so that one had to rely on the few words of accompaniment (French, English, Spanish). Alternatively, we looked at Google maps at the same time, what we saw.

The tour is great once you found the boat you are supposed to be on. We booked for "Batobus" but the tour was on Parisienne. Very confusing. The wifi didn't work, so there was no commentary, which is a big drawback. The boat was nice. Signs and instructions are dismal. But I assume the other ones are not much better.
