This was a wonderful experience for an event meal, the food was excellent but the views of course were what made the meal so special, everything was leisurely paced and it started with a complimentary champagne welcome; appetizer and main course that followed all very nice. The views of Notre Dame all lit up, the bridges and then of course... More

Although we have been to Paris many times, this was our first cruise on the Seine. While we were looking at lunch cruises, our opportunity on this boat was for dinner. Pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and service. It was a delight to enjoy the night time sights as we leisurely ate and enjoyed some good wine.... More

This was our third or 4th time taking an evening boat trip and it really is the most amazing way to spend the evening. Obviously the views are stunning and the vibe on the boat is great. As it gets darker it just gets more amazing as the Eiffel Tower lights up at 10pm. Its approx 2 hours on the... More

For this cruise for lunch, it's a great deal. If you are u book one of the other cruises, I believe they stop at multiple stations so people can get on an off. It costs 17 Euro anyways for that. For this Calife Cruise, it's nice because you can eat and drink as you take a nice and slow cruise... More

A wonderful evening. Great food and good service. The views are stunning and the experience is very serene. We found the boat easily using the instructions and a map.

My DH and I chose to cap off our trip to Paris with a dinner cruise and we are very glad we did. We chose the 67 euro menu, which with a bottle of wine, coffees, tax and tip came out to ~100pp. I do not think I would have chosen the more expensive menu because some of our favorite... More

We picked this river boat per TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. It was a little hard to find the dock (walking directions were not accurate)..but we did find and were invited aboard. We had a fantastic seat upstairs and were greeted with champagne. There are two different menus, our table had both as we selected based upon the main... More

We researched and found this online from various reviews and weren't disappointed. The food was selfish and the bottle of champagne we had with it was scrummy. ( All reasonably priced). The service is exceptional and English is spoken well. A lovely break from having to use our very limited French!!! The boat itself is just gorgeous and really well... More

We booked this boat trip with evening meal to coincide with a trip to Paris for our wedding anniversary. When booking the boat trip, I spent ages researching which boat trip/meal to go for and was almost about to book with a different firm that had a flashy looking boat and was more expensive...I am so glad that I kept...

Visited for cruise on new years day. Food and service was excellent couldn't fault it. Wine was slightly expensive but it's to be expected on a cruise. I would strongly recommend this to anyone visiting Paris!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
