Disappointing experience
BERNARD_M, Sept 2023
Reheated food (like airplane food) was not particularly warm nor flavourful. Not good value for money. A slightly pushy, cheeky ‘souvenir photographer’.
Nice cruise
Terence_S, Sept 2023
Easy access to the loading location. Nice seating and views on the boat. Service was very efficient. Our meals (salmon & chicken) were good. Separate small bottle of wine was also tasty. Early evening viewing is nice, especially the Eiffel Tower when lit up.
Very pleasant
christina_N, Sept 2023
It was a great experience. Food, waitresses, soft music, and drinks. Drinks were not included but we knew that. Dressy casual.

Mark_E, Sept 2023
A Great Boat ride but very busy a lot of people .Staff very friendly . Food ok but felt rushed . Need to be outside to see most of the sights as light reflecting back inside from interior light’s ruin the view.

The staff was so friendly and the food was amazing!!! We were beyond excited for this experience and it did NOT disappoint!

Lovely experience, amazing sights, food was great and service was good , all in all a great way to see the sights and eat, thoroughly recommend.
Luis_O, Sept 2023
This was a great idea and wonderful experience. This cruise did a very nice job. The photos I uploaded were specific because of the other reviews we read prior to booking all showed stuff that didn't actually explain the cruise experience. First the location was easy to find. The boarding was fast and easy. I had the tickets printed, but didn't need them as they can scan them on your phone. As soon as you as you check in you're shown to your seats. There's actually no really bad seats. As you can see, you're seated NEXT to each other unlike other cruises. It's a little cramp, but not bad. Move the table if you want to get up or are bigger. The vibe is lively. They play music in the background, but it's not overbearing where you can't hear your company. Where what you like. It was August, so it was warm outside and people were dressed in various ways. I didn't see shorts, but did see jeans, polo shirts, ties, suits and dresses. Dress what you're comfortable in. The food was good. Very good. Anytime you do any large event, don't expect it to be cooked to perfection. Think wedding/banquet meal style. It was good and well worth it. They'll come by and serve you drinks. Don't expect to have several rounds. They're busy and have to serve the whole ship. So if you need more drinks...order 2 in advance. The views from the ship were great. Undoubtedly, you'll most likely be visiting them all in person up close and from the land. So don't expect great photos. But it's nice to see and relaxing while eating, drinking and enjoying your company. You'll have the opportunity to have your photos taken by the onboard photographer. Standard photo selection. They're nice but don't expect wedding photo quality, more like prom poses. They're nice to have to remember your trip. They take credit cards like everywhere else. Remember to tip your'll goes a long way (faster drinks, etc).
Nice relaxing cruise
Kylie_S, Sept 2023
Nice relaxing trip down the seine. Friendly service food was ok but ample. All drinks including extra bottles of Water are extra but overall a nice way to finish our trip to Paris.
Hidden departure area
Brian_G, Sept 2023
They have moved the cruise starting place to a strange area accessed from the middle of a bridge with no lighting or obvious access, and we were unable to find it in time. The organizer could not possibly care less. Go with a different boat in the standard area.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Hello, Thank you for your feedback. The boarding area has been the same for years and has not been moved since. There are indeed construction work, and we are sorry it impacted your experience negatively. We do not have any control over construction work in public spaces. Best regards Paris en Scène Team
River dinner cruise
Linda_C, Sept 2023
Perfect trip to see the lights of Paris. Every seat had a view and the 3 course meal was excellent. Viewing was also allowed upstairs and on the open bow. Just the right amount of time for the trip.
Relaxing sightseeing
Kay_D, Sept 2023
Relaxing start to our visit to Paris. Recommend the late cruise to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle. I did not expect too much from the meal but it turned out to be one of the nicest meals we had during our stay in Paris

OSAMU_T, Sept 2023
Gentle way to wind up a days. Lovely to see the grand buildings from the river while enjoying a very nice meal.
Cute cruise with healthy dinner
Ginger_D, Sept 2023
This cruise is worth it to see the Eiffel Tower in both daylight and nightlight in the sane trip. Food was good and I bought a small bottle of wine for about $15. Worth the money for sure.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear guest, We're delighted to hear that you found our cruise worth it for the opportunity to see the Eiffel Tower. We're also pleased that you enjoyed the good food and the option to purchase wine. Thank you for choosing Paris en Scène and for sharing your positive experience. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back. Kind regards Paris en Scène Team
River cruise
Nora_P, Sept 2023
Seeing the Eiffel Tower at night. Also, the activity along the river. Dinner was good and the service was also good.
Great views average food.
Andrea_W, Sept 2023
Seeing the city from the water was amazing. And watching the Eiffel Tower light up was fantastic. The service was average as was the food. Our main meal was cold by the time it was served.
Pleasant cruise
Andrea_j, Sept 2023
What a wonderful river cruise! The food and service was good. Music and atmosphere was very nice. I wish they narrated as we cruise so we new what the buildings were.
Great little cruise, a great way to see the Eiffel tower light up.
Peter_D, Sept 2023
Great little cruise, just long enough. We thought the food was good, not amazing and not poor by any means. There was a really generous piece of salmon and nice fresh beans. Desert was tasty as was the nice simple couscous starter. The timing of the 7pm cruise is spot on, starts out in the light at the start of September and finishes as it turns around for docking at the exact time the sparking lights come on the Eiffel tower. For 60 euros each we thought it one of the better upmarket experiences in Paris. The boat is very nice and the service was perfect, very polite and timing perfect. It was really something to see and wave to all the people dancing and picnicking on the riverside, a lovely experience!
Not worth the money
Sophie_R, Sept 2023
Disappointed in this experience. We could hardly see the city through the windows with the lights on the boat, and the food was subpar. Probably our least favorite part of our trip. Don't bother.
Response from Host, Sept 2023

We strive to provide a memorable and enjoyable time for our guests, and it's disheartening to hear that we fell short of your expectations.
