On this cruise, embark on a day at sea on the River Seine in the heart of Paris. Take in a mouthwatering lunch of three courses served a la carte and delicious wines. Visit famous landmarks like the Louvre Museum and the Notre Dame Cathedral.

To board the cruise, meet your host at Paris's Port de la Bourdonnais. Relax, take a seat, enjoy the ride, and pay attention to the crew members' commentary as you glide gracefully down the river.

As the chefs prepare your lunch, inhale the delicious aroma emanating from the kitchen. You will receive the premier, privilege, or etoile service package, depending on your book choice.

Experience a three-course lunch that will leave you wanting more. Served with wine, cheese, and champagne, depending on the package you select.

Do you feel full? No worries; just sit back, sip some tea or coffee, and take in the sights. Take in the sights of Paris from a new angle and marvel at the Musée d'Orsay's former Beaux-Arts railway station.

The lunch cruise was lovely. We recommend service premiere — it’s worth the penny. We were welcomed with glasses of champagne and ushered to a comfortable seat at the bow of the boat where we had a nice panoramic view of Paris. The food and service were of top quality. It was a very relaxing activity, and we look forward to coming back to try the rest of the menu.

Took the lunch cruise with our 4 teenage grand-daughters on the first day of our two-week Paris visit. It was a great way to start the visit -- viewing the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, etc., while enjoying French cuisine and French wine. We had the less expensive middle table, which I think provides a better view than the window tables, since you can easily view out both sides of the boat.

We were a party of 4 and chosen the privilege service. The suggested dress code was smart casual no sports wear/shorts or trainers which we respected but there were other guests that arrived in tailored shorts and trainers so things seems to be more relaxed nowadays since I lasted visited Paris 17 years ago! We arrived at the port 15 minutes earlier than the required time. We checked in and were given a menu in our preferred language, then walked through to the waiting area. It was crowded and hot with very few seats and waited a good 20-25 minutes before we can board the boat. Once boarded, we were shown to our table by the window. The boat seemed stylish as advertised and the staff all smartly dressed. Our dedicated waiter arrived and introduced himself, returned shortly and took our order. We were served with a welcome drink each, a bottle of water, red AND white wine per table of two. The food were nicely presented and delicious, an overall exceptional experience.

The lunch was wonderful and the tour of the river was too. There wasn't any announcements of where you were along the river. They handed out a guide to show you what the highlights would be. That was nice because we were able to just enjoy our lunch and watch Paris go by. A great way to see the city in a short time. Oh, the food was great.

I didn't know what to expect from the food, and being a foodie this was important to me. It was delicious and really unexpected. Fancy yet filling. And the wine flowed like a fountain! Having been to Paris many times, I didn't want a touristy thing to do, and this didn't feel like that. Planning on doing this again!

The premium location on the vessel was extremely hot and the air conditioner had little effect. We were moved by the waiter to a shaded spot, but the view was compromised. We were pleased to be able to move though and enjoy the luncheon provided, which was excellent.

I brought my girlfriend, now fiancé after this trip, to Paris as a surprise for her birthday and to get engaged. I only booked a couple things early, a bike tour, and this River Seine Lunch Cruise. This was worth every penny and then some. We did the Etoile lunch service which was at a table in the middle of the boat. If you're not looking to spend a lot, I definitely recommend the Etoile service. You get fantastic views of the scenery and nearly the same service. Our waiter worked our table as well as tables along the edges of the boat. There are some food/drink differences with the higher priced tables, but since this was lunch I don't feel like we missed out on anything. Speaking of, the food was fantastic, as was the wine. We're hoping to serve the same champagne and wine at our wedding! You won't regret booking this lunch cruise!

The food was outstanding as well as the service and overall experience. I wanted to surprise my fiancé for our anniversary and a lot of the other cruises sounded like a bad deal or didn't have an overall good offer. This one here was just perfect. I paid for the privileged service, we got a table for two at the window and wine, water and coffee. I can only recommend the experience, we were super happy with the cruise!

Great value for money in a really stylish boat. A welcome drink and choice of a bottle of red or white wine with our food. Do note that the meeting point is not exact, it brings you to one of the docks but the boat can be situated at any of them. There are staff at each dock that can direct you to the right place.

I understand visitors want to capture the best photos of Paris BUT….does that mean they get to ruin the experience for others? We paid for expensive seats to have a window view of our cruise. Sitting down to enjoy the view, we couldn’t have been happier. Then SHE showed up…and unfortunately hardly returned to her seat. With all this hair (who wants hair over their food?), she hung over my daughter-in-law like a dark cloud most of the experience. The wait staff had to constantly move around her, she pulled the hair of my daughter-in-law, bumped into her, all while snapping selfies and photos of Paris. In question - If you pay for the center of the ship seats, do you have the right to come stay by the window on top of guests have paid to be by the window while dining? I finally had to ask the staff to request she leave. However, should the staff have handled this situation much earlier by asking the guest to return to her seat?
