Booked 2 tickets for the 5PM/17:00 slot on a Sunday (early November). I had purchased the tickets the day before with no issues. We arrived about ~20min before the ride and saw only a few people lined up already. They checked our tickets and pass sanitaire, and it was pretty seamless. The cruise took off right on time. There was enough space on the boat. Definitely recommend bundling up since it was an evening ride in early November especially if you sit at the top. Brilliant experience, very much worth it. We didn't have any issues with tide as I saw with other reviews. We saw everything that the description said we would.

Lovely experience as the sun was setting at 5pm so half the cruise was in the dark meaning the lights of the city looked fabulous. As we arrived back at 6 the tower was sparkling too. Saw all the famous landmarks along the route. The tour was in french and English but we struggled somewhat with the English part due to the sound level and translation. Had to ask for the crepe and didn’t drink in the standard ticket as initially told standard ticket didn’t include. Got it in the end and it was very nice too!

We booked our ticket days before going. We arrived 30 minutes before departure time and there was already a huge line to enter the boat. There was absolutely no benefits in booking in advance. Booking in advance should have benefits like priority boarding or free drink or the best seats. When we boarded, all rooftop seats were full. Thankfully we found some, in the lower deck, in the front of the boat. Other than that, it went smoothly and we enjoyed it very much. Suggestion: They could say the name of the major bridges and monuments throughout the ride or some fun facts about them.
