Upon arrival, staff received us with a genuine smile (are we really in Paris?), and started to feel the welcoming atmosphere on board. I was invited to personalize the ambiance by ordering some little extras like a magnificent bouquet of red roses, chilled champagne in the cabin (next time I need to think of the strawberries!), and something I think was a “Lovebox” containing some surprises from a brand called Bijoux Indiscrets. Thanks for the advice, this little plus made a difference.
I appreciated the privacy and comfort of the boat and our cozy cabin overlooking the Seine River, the confortable double bed, all equipped with shower and sanitary. Don’t expect a 100m2 hotel room – you are probably in the wrong place – but you get a real luxury Yacht comfort experience.
For dinner, we had a table for two on the Seine with the possibility to walk around on deck during our meal. Quality of the meal was aligned with our expectations, and we just loved the chocolate dessert in duo.
No need to describe our night onboard, the thing you need to know is that staff really cares about your intimacy, and that it was very … romantic :-) Waking up with the sound of the water lapping was very relaxing, too.
VIP is of easy access, and if you really want to leave for a while you may find plenty of nearby walking and cultural activities: Bibliothèque François Mitterand, the Cour Saint Emilion, the Botanical Gardens, Chinatown and Mouffetard, among others. During the trip we could see monuments we would otherwise just ignore while strolling around in a city I thought I already knew well enough.
I believe this is a unique and original service in Paris, which made me (us!) have a romantic moment in a different way. Overall, a Quality experience I would be willing to repeat.
