Shown above: The Bateaux Parisiens dinner cruise menu.
What I had: For the first course, I tried the green and white cream soup served cappuccino style, with lobster bits and slow-cooked morels. Delish!
The duck foie gras - always a good choice.
For our next course, I chose the beef tournedos, with a reduction of Bordelaise wine sauce. My pick for dessert was the Crepes Suzette, orrange butter and Grand Marnier.
Unfortunately, due to where I was sitting (you know, one of those places where you have to disrupt everyone else to get away from the table), I never made it onto the deck. I did catch glimpses out of the windows as we passed by these famous landmarks ...

A nice touch: During our cruise along the Seine, we were serenaded by the musicians, and even an operatic rendition of "Ava Maria" as we passed Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres.
Needless to say, with the delicious food, lovely company, and enchanting ambiance, I was "a happy camper"!
