Full description
Embark on your cruise in front of the Orsay museum. Slip onto the Seine, before the Tuileries garden and the Louvre. Marvel at views of the Arts Gateway, Cité Island and Notre-Dame, the magnificent Saint Louis Island’s mansions, Jardin des Plantes, the bridge Charles de Gaulle, the Omnisports of Paris Bercy and the National Library of France.

At the Seine and the Marne’s confluence, right after Chinagora, cross your first lock, the Saint Maurice, and find yourself in the middle of the countryside. The cruise passes along the Moulin Brûlé Island, under the bridge of Maisons Alfort.

The boat crosses the Créteil lock before arriving on the Loop of La Marne. Beautiful residences are huddled behind the trees. Mallards and swans lives around the islands. The boat navigates along Bonneuil and its harbor, the Moulin Bateau’s Island, Chennevières where the painter Pissaro used to work.

Enjoy lunch on board before heading back to the city. Each 100% homemade recipe honors the French traditional cooking of grandmothers, prepared to suit the seasons. Served as a buffet, your lunch is the opportunity to share a friendly moment with other passengers while discovering the Marne river.
