8. Paris: 2-Hour River Seine Lunch Cruise
Climb aboard a panoramic pleasure boat for a 2-hour lunch cruise along the River Seine in central Paris, and enjoy a 3-course à-la-carte meal as you take in the views.
The entirely glassed-over boat is of a contemporary design, with onboard toilets for your comfort. See the quays of the Seine, from the replica of the Statue of Liberty to the French National Library.
Cruise past the golden dome of Les Invalides, the bombastic buildings of the French Parliament, and the former Beaux-Arts railway station of the Musée d’Orsay.
Get up close to the Gothic façade of Notre Dame Cathedral, see the imposing former prison of the Conciergerie, discover the palatial home of the Louvre Museum, and much more.
Artistic scene-setting is punctuated by a commentary highlighting key monuments, while views from the glass roof are legendary. Classic French music will be played to set the scene, providing a relaxing backdrop to your meal of chef-prepared traditional cuisine.
