Dinner on the Seine in a beautiful boat. Ambiance was simply romantic beyond words. Food very good for “a dining experience” rather than a restaurant. One couple got engaged. Entire room cheered and clapped. Beautiful glass windows allow amazing views of all bridges and ale...More

I have not taken a New Years Eve cruise but I have taken a dinner cruise. There is no room for live music. The entire boat is set for tables and a small bar in the front of the boat.

One complementary glass of champagne then the rest is paid for. Not crazy expensive. The deposit is deducted from your final bill. Great evening and worth every penny! Oh, and if you want a guided tour, this isn’t the tour... More
