Lunch and dinner cruises on the Seine

Let the Seine introduce you to Paris and its monuments on a leisurely lunch or dinner cruise.

Do you dream of discovering the charms of the French capital and getting away from the traffic and crowds? Make time, stand still and forget about the present. Let the Seine transport you on a wonderful journey and discover the timelessness and majesty of Paris and its remarkable monuments as you cruise along the water. A table in the sun for a pleasant lunch or with subdued lighting and a more intimate atmosphere: an ideal setting for a gourmet escapade, a romantic evening, an innovative dinner idea with the family or an original experience to enjoy with friends.

The huge bay windows give you 360° views of Paris!  The Eiffel Tower, the Orsay Museum, the Institut de France, the Île de la Cité, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris , the Île Saint-Louis, the Hôtel de Ville (City Hall), the Conciergerie, the Louvre Museum, the Grand Palais, the Maison de la Radio, the Statue de la Liberté, as well as the Passerelle des Arts, the (bridges) Pont Neuf, Pont de Bir Hakeim, Pont Alexandre III … The city’s finest museums and monuments set the scene for this magical experience – a pleasure for the taste buds and the eyes!
