The first time I visited Paris, I was eager to make a cruise on the Seine, so I went for another stay in the city of love to remove the thorn in my heart.
I booked the cruise at Travelzoo page, since at that time it had a promotion that allowed me to save a little money. The offer was including a cruise which lasts 75 minutes, a dinner and champagne for two people. The cruise company was Paris en Scene and it only costed 69 euro’s. Here is a link to the company’s webpage, http://www.paris-en-scene.com So you can look for more information about the different kinds of cruises they offer. Paris is a very touristic city, especially on Saturdas, so i called a couple of weeks before to validate the voucher and reserve a place on the cruise.
MY EXPERIENCE. – Paris nigthlights seduced me to the rhythm of the Seine-
At last the time has come, after a long day visiting the city of love, I was expecting a fantastic dinner. I took the subway in the Latin quarter, to Bir Hakeim station and walked towards Port de Grenelle, the place from which the ship was leaving.
We sat at a table next to the window, from which we could admire the beautiful Paris night lights.
The boat moved gracefully over the waters of the Seine while the waiter began to serve a great French champagne and an exquisite foie gras with marmalade to incoming mode.
While we were dining, we could see the Eiffel Tower illuminated and dotted with lights sizzling in the distance. From the waters of the Seine, I discovered a completely different perspective of the city.
Wonderful illuminated Parisian bridges, as the Alexandre III, charm and beautiful at night, with its illuminated statues recreated a seductive environment where light reflected in the water, creating a magical effect.
The waiter served us the main dish, (a piece of chicken with basmati rice and vegetables) but I was hypnotized savoring the scenery.
In front of me, the spectacular view of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, where the gargoyles seemed to greet on the heights and the Christmas Fir perfectly adorned, were the finishing touch to frame that magical moment.
Slowly the boat turned around to bring us back where we started and thereby slowly bringing me back to reality.
Desserts began to serve and from my small table, I enjoyed my sweet chocolate, feeling Paris dancing in my eyes.
Note: During the cruise, the staff was very friendly and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the good service. My expectations for the food were lower, I expected a menu of less quality. I enjoyed a good meal while the beauty of Paris nigthlights seduced me to the rhythm of the Seine.
I hope that many of you will enjoy the cruise with the same enthusiasm that I had while having this experience. Enjoy with disfrutamiruta The “I love you wall” and say i love you in 300 lenguages.
