Why choose Bateaux Parisiens for a dinner cruise in Paris?
The Bateaux Parisiens company is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its service and the gastronomy offered on board. We love the embarkation at the foot of the Eiffel Tower and the live music throughout the course. We love the modernity of boats entirely designed for a perfect panoramic view regardless of the location on the boat.
What time does the Bateaux Parisiens cruise with dinner leave?
Two daily departure times are available: 6.15 p.m. and 8.30 p.m. During school holidays, it is also possible to book a 9 p.m. cruise modeled on the 6.15 p.m. cruise. The 6:15 p.m. cruise is short with a duration of 1:15 which makes it ideal for a family dinner with small children. Take your time with the 8:30 pm cruise which lasts 2h30. Check-in is made at decks n°5 or n°7 (fifty meters between the two decks) up to 15 minutes before the cruise departure. Note that the boats are forced by the river authorities to leave at fixed times and will not be able to wait for you if you arrive late.
