Seine Cruises

by MapleMoose

Ok, here's what I want: A Seine cruise at night without meals but where we can see the city of lights. Here's what I don't want: Sitting in the middle of 15 seats across surrounded by glass and seeing little and being unable to take pictures. It seems there are many styles of boats for the various companies. Does anybody know how to ensure the most visible journey?

Re: Seine Cruises

by Beausoleil

We use the Batobus for transportation not cruising so I'm no expert. However, we have seen many boats on the Seine that have an upper deck open to the elements, i.e. a very visible journey.

Some of the Bateaux Parisiens are either open in good weather or have an upper deck, but not all or even most of them. http://www.bateauxparisiens.com/

The Bateaux Mouches often have an upper deck so that might be your choice. http://www.bateauxmouches.com/

Vedettes de paris have some upper decks that are not covered. You can check them at http://www.vedettesdeparis.com/index.php

And there is our favorite the Batobus, but they are all covered as far as I know. You can certainly take photos through the glass tops as I have done it often. The Batobus does not light monuments nor give commentary. It is simply transportation but on the water. http://www.batobus.com/english/8escale.htm

I suspect you probably need to be there to see which boat arrives since some have upper decks and some do not. Perhaps if you explain your wish to the ticket agent, he could tell you when to plan your cruise.

Good luck . . . also good luck taking pictures at night on a moving boat. (Be sure you get a boat that lights the monuments as you go by.)

We wanted to do exactly the same thing and in the end we booked a cruise with Les Vedettes du Pont-Neuf (http://www.vedettesdupontneuf.com/). We sat on the upper deck and were able to take as many pictures as we wanted!

Re: Seine Cruises

by MapleMoose

Thanks. I am leaning to the Vedettes de Pont Neuf after reading the reviews also. it would appear that the night cruise may have an open top consistently. It is also well located for us and I may check the day before to get a feel for what is best and see what lead time we will need.

Re: Seine Cruises

by MapleMoose

Thanks Pedro. I will check out the websites! One thing I would like to do is be able to see the Eiffel Tower at the top of the hour for the lights. I imagine most cruises will be within good range of this at some point in the trip.

Hi! Like Jefie, we took the Seine river cruise with Les Vedettes du Pont-Neuf. Open-top, with a staff to introduce the different sights and monuments along the river.

To save money, go to the company's website and click on the "Reduction Internet" link, print out the discount coupon and show it to the cashier when you buy the tickets, and save 2 Euros per person! Alternatively, if you book the tour online, you can save 4 Euros per person (however, once you book via internet, you cannot change the date and time and there is no refund).

Re: Seine Cruises

by Jefie

MapleMoose, if you mean you'd like to see the tower "sparkle", we did see it during our evening Seine cruise :o)

Re: Seine Cruises

by MapleMoose

That's what I did mean, Isa, I know it "sparkles" for 10 minutes an hour. Thanks to all again. We will try thr Vedettes de Pont Neuf from the top deck hopefully! (with coupon of course!)

Spend some time getting to...

by pptanner

Spend some time getting to know the neighborhood. Stay on the Left Bank; the 7th arrondissement has some great hotels, neighborhood bakeries, cafes, shops, restaurants, and a much less touristy feel than other areas of the city. From our hotel we could see the Eiffel Tower, and we loved watching the special illumination and special lighting effects put on at night to celebrate the year 2000.

The other thing we truly enjoy in Paris is having our morning coffee and croissants in our room as we get ready to go out and explore this fascinating city.

Before the Summer Tourists Converge

by Radiomom

May is a terrific time to visit. It is finally warming up and bringing everyone out to enjoy many beautiful parks. The fountain in the Jardin de Tuilleries (bet I really blew the spelling?) was totally surrounded by locals and French tourists on this day. We heard little Englais on this trip. (Not a problem, rather refreshing)

Les sans-papiers

by Nemorino

One of the fastest ways to unite a squabbling school class is to threaten to throw some of its members out of the country.

This banner at the Bullet School (named after Pierre Bullet, a French architect who lived from 1639 to 1716) in the 10th arrondissment reads:

"The Bullet School says NO to the expulsion of the children of the families without papers" followed by the names of some of the kids who are threatened with deportation.

This is currently a big issue in both France and Germany: what to do with people who have lived here for years or decades but do not have the proper paperwork to allow them to stay on permanently.

Prominent reactionary politicians in both countries are trying to have all these people put on planes and sent back to where they came from, err, where their parents or grandparents came from. For the children this would be especially bitter because many of them have lived here for most or all of their lives and don't even know the countries they are being deported to.

In both France and Germany there have been numerous newspaper stories about this in recent months. For a journalist looking for a good story, it is of course ideal if one of the children happens to be a photogenic seventeen-year-old girl who speaks fluent French*, gets straight As in school, is president of the student council and is dating a nice French* boy from a prominent local family. But even if the kids in question are only average or whatever, their classmates are determined not to let them be deported if they can help it.

*Or German, as the case may be.

Second photo: This sign on the City Hall of the 14th arrondissment says: Against the expulsion and for the legalization of the pupils and their families "without papers". (The mayor of the 14th, Pierre Castagnou, is a member of the Socialist Party, otherwise he probably wouldn't have put up that sign.)

Third photo: This "mobilized school" in the Rue Sorbier, 20th arrondissement, declares its solidarity with the people without papers.
