This was a highlight of our trip to Paris! We took the lunch cruise on Christmas Eve day, and it was fantastic. Excellent service, truly delicious food, plenty of wine, and stunning views from all sides of the boat. It was incredible seeing so many Paris landmarks, and all the unique houseboats and local scenery from the vantage point of the Seine.

Cruise itself was excellent, food was very good and wine was plentiful. However, the check-in process left much to be desired. We paid in advance for window seating. They made us wait until everyone else had boarded, then told us there was no window seating available. Not until we complained and asked for a refund, did they find a window table. If not for this, I would give 5 stars.

Unfortunately, our boat was not able to leave the pier due to mechanic issues when we arrived. However, the staff was very accommodating and we were able to have our delicious lunch sitting on the boat and then were given a voucher to take a scenic river cruise later that day. Overall, we enjoyed both the relaxed lunch and the river cruise. The food was very good and presented very nicely. Our waiter was attentive and friendly.
