An amazing 4 star floating hotel moored close to the Eiffel Tower providing FULL BOARD MEALS and a full programme of excursions with a local guide

If you think it’s too expensive to stay in a good quality hotel in the centre of Paris think again! – We have secured this amazing floating hotel moored close to the Eiffel Tower which includes comfortable accommodation in cosy well equipped cabins with large windows giving wonderful river views.

France’s romantic capital city has something for everyone and its popularity seems everlasting – it is the perfect late season destination.  During this short-break you will easily discover the magic of the city for yourself, it is just impossible to avoid being swept up by the bright lights and glamour!  From the world famous Eiffel Tower to sedately cruising down the Seine – Paris cannot fail to impress! 


Friday - Morning departure from Dorset for midday Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. Drive through the French countryside to arrive in Central Paris for 18:00 boarding the ship. A welcome from the resident host before you enjoy dinner in the restaurant. Later a cabaret show entertains us into the night.

Saturday - A local guide will join us on the coach for a panoramic tour of the legendary sights of this beautiful and magical city - tell us the facts and figures, history and stories. The morning will concentrate around the Ile de la Cite and the fateful sight of Notre Dame cathedral, so sadly ravaged by fire in 2019. This afternoon a guided tour of Saint Germain-des-Pres, one of the cradles of Parisian culture. A special treat will be tasting chocolates and macarons in one of the most celebrated shops in the neighbourhood - followed by a stroll through the Grande Epicerie, a food-lovers paradise! Return to the ship for dinner. Subject to the river water level we may also cruise to the ultra-modern business district of La Defense and back.

Sunday - The morning is free to explore the French capital at your own pace. Our ship is moored close to the Eifel Tower, Trocadero Gardens and Les Invalides. This afternoon the local guide will escort us to Pere Lachaise Cemetery, one of the most famous resting places in the world. It may seem a bit macabre but with so many famous tombs and such artistry to the graves, it becomes a fascinating visit. A Gala dinner this evening during which the ship will undertake a "Paris by Night" cruise (subject to river water level) where you will float through the beautifully illuminated city and take in the stunning sights - simply breathtaking!

Monday - After breakfast disembark the ship and head homewards via afternoon Eurotunnel crossing. Return to Dorset by early evening.
