The boat was lovely and the staff were excellent. But the drinks package was a waste of money - and don’t believe the reviews saying that the drinks package guarantees you a window table. It doesn’t. Also there were extra charges which were not explained at the time of ordering, including the beef main course selection which cos an extra 15 euro (it is in the small print on the printed menu, but not easily spotted). With the drinks package, guests are all provided with a half bottle of red wine, I asked for Chardonnay instead and was given a full bottle - but with no explanation that it would cost more. At 24 euro pp for the drinks package, most people would be much better off ordering drinks on the boat.
My family and I had a great time on this river cruise. Food was great and the service was promptly great.
This was a nice, relaxing dinner on the Seine. The staff was friendly and the food was good. The boat had plenty of room and was not crowded.
excellent and very enjoyable. to all in the group. Food was very good and views where awesome. a bit difficult to find.
The service was terrible and the food extremely cold. You can hardly see the bridges the way the seating is set and the waiter refused to allow me to purchase additional beverages. Complete waste of time and money.
Underwhelmed by the food. Boat 2/3 empty but no window seat offered. Steak Ok but sauce like wallpaper paste.
One of the best experiences we had in Paris. Excellent food and drinks! Excellent service!
the cruise was pleasant. the only downside was the female photographer on board. we had to ask her to come to our table and ask her why she totally bypassed us. all the tables surrounding us were approached and photos were taken. she said something about not taking tables with only couples. this was non-sense, two of the three tables around us were couples. however, she did apologize and pleasant photos were taken. by the way, we were the only blacks patrons on board.
Food was amazing and learned alot.
