Step aboard your glass-enclosed Bateaux Parisiens boat near the Eiffel Tower on the evening of Bastille Day. Kick off your dinner cruise with a celebratory glass of Champagne and follow the host to your table in your selected seating section — in the center of the boat, near a window or in the front of the boat. Your boat’s glass roof and panoramic windows give you unparalleled views of the city lights and changing scenery as the boat meanders along the Seine River.
Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Seine riverbanks are lined with numerous Paris attractions. Pass the iconic arches of the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Latin Quarter and the Parisian Statue of Liberty, as well as world-class museums such as the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre. Admire the glass vault dome of the Grand Palais, and on the west of the Île de la Cité, catch sight of the medieval Conciergerie, a former prison where hundreds were detained during the French Revolution.
At La Bibliothèque Nationale de France (the National Library of France), turn around for the return voyage to the Eiffel Tower and settle in for a gourmet 6-course meal. Enjoy fine French cuisine paired with wine, a menu specially designed for Bastille Day, as the band plays live music for your nightly entertainment.
Then, gaze out to the Bassins du Trocadero, opposite the bank from the Eiffel Tower, and enjoy a prime view of a spectacular fireworks display. Savor the occasion as the fiery lights illuminate the sky for 35 minutes, and listen for the cheer of hundreds of people crowding the banks.
Continue your party on the boat until it returns to the departing quay, where your 4-hour cruise ends. Highlights
