Wonderful way to see some major sights in Paris! The boat was large and had ample upstairs (outdoor) and downstairs seating. The huge glass windows inside made it easy to see what you were looking at. Because the cruise is for anyone who gets a ticket, they have these little phones (downstairs) that you can program to your language to listen to information about the sights. Overall I'd recommend!

The cruise is beautiful and offers a unique view of Paris. For those who want it is possible to stay inside the boat to avoid the cold that is inevitable in winter. The upper floor is uncovered, with long benches on all sides to offer the best possible view. In the centre, the roof is glazed to let those staying indoors see the outside. We stayed outdoors so I don't know what the view through the glass roof is like.

The specified 20 minutes that you should be there before the desired date are by no means sufficient in the high season. We queued 1 1/2 hours before it was our turn. The comments can hardly be understood in some places on deck. You should be aware that this is a mass processing. Still well organized.
