fourteen things to keep in mind when Visiting  Seine river cruise


The Seine sightseeing river boat tours are one hour long. Lunch and dinner cruises tend to be two hours long. You may spend anywhere from 15-30 minutes boarding the cruise.

Book in advance 

Seine River Cruises are very popular, so booking your tickets online in advance is a good idea to ensure availability.

Live guides

Live guides narrate stories and anecdotes about the buildings and places you see. Most times, they also take questions from the cruisers. Usually, the Live Guides speak both English and French.

Pre-recorded narration

Narrations are available in many languages. Narrations come in printed handouts, audio devices, and audio guide apps based on cruise companies.

Cruise route

Since the Seine river runs through Paris and all the major attractions are lined up next, routes are the same. The routes change if you book a Parisian Canal cruise against a Seine River cruise.

Check the weather

Check the weather forecast before your trip to dress appropriately and plan for weather-related delays or cancellations.

Bring a camera 

The Seine River offers stunning views of Paris, so remember to bring a camera or smartphone to capture the scenery.

Dress appropriately

Dress comfortably and appropriately for the type of cruise you're taking. Cruises have their own dress code, which you can see on the ticket booking page, so check beforehand.
