The world-class chef is offering travelers the chance to enjoy sumptous cuisine whilst sailing along the River Seine.

Sail along the Seine river and savour flavours courtesy of celebrity chef Alain Ducasse this autumn.

Taking place on-board an all new ship, the 200-passenger, all-electric Ducasse Sur Seine launches this September, and will offer travelers the chance to try lunch or dinner. Options range from a  $115 three-course lunch to a $570 five-course dinner paired with wine (and champagne, of course). French-born, Alain operates a number of restaurants including Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester which holds three stars  in the Michelin Guide.

For those who prefer traditional pastimes there’s also a $40 option for a sweet and savoury afternoon tea served on the rooftop, accompanied  with views of the Eiffel Tower.

The three-course lunch includes items such; Sea bream gravlax, guinea fowl and duck foie gras and line-caught Pollock with shellfish “a la mariniere.” For dessert, enjoy hazelnut and citrus shortbread, oven-baked figs with fig tree ice cream or a Parisian chocolate composition.

The five-course dinner menu  features chilled lobster, pan-seared fillet of beef au jus and the Parisian chocolate composition for dessert, served with a crispy praline.

The vessel is a collaborative project between Ducasse Paris, Citysurfing and the Caisse des Dpts. Passengers will embark at Port Debilly near the Tracadero metro stop across the river from the Eiffel Tower for a 90-minute cruise along the Seine that will sail past some of Paris’ iconic landmarks, including the Louvre and Notre Dame.
