Overall enjoyed the dinner cruise. Food was delicious and nice to travel down the Seine seeing the sights. Waitstaff we’re very friendly and kind. Only issue was when asking a pair of men at the entry to the boat if we were in the correct spot, they were extremely rude- as there are 4-5 boats at the dock none of which have signs or indicate where you go etc.

I went on the early dinner cruise. The boat was beautiful and the wait staff excellent. I paid for the premium seating. Because of the early time, the sun was brutal at the front of the boat, necessitating sunglasses. Also, read the menu before booking to make sure you like the options. Lastly, do not expect to be told what any landmarks are…this is a dinner cruise, not a tour.

We like eating early (6:15 pm cruise start) so this works well for us. We arrived at 5:45 and were seated at 5:55. Food service started immediately as there is only 75 minutes to cruise. We were finished with the appetizer and about to start the main course when the boat left dock at 6:15. We cruised for 64 minutes when we were back at the dock. The food was good, the scenery terrific, and the staff were friendly and courteous. We will dine with Bateaux Parisiens again.
