The Miraculous cruise, the special cruise for children!
- The Miraculous Cruise is an interactive cruise, aboard the Bateaux Parisiens,
- It is a participatory show on a cruise with Ladybug and Chat Noir, the hero of the Miraculous series
- This is a cruise playful and original
- It is a unique experience mixing quiz and immersive theater in the presence of Ladybug and Black Cat
The pitch for the game on board the Miraculous cruise:
- During this life-size game, children become heroes, assistant investigators of Ladybug and Black Cat
- Indeed, Ladybug is in pursuit of an enemy who travels around Paris in order to make all the monuments of the city disappear
- During this race, Ladybug and Black Cat commandeer the Bateaux Parisiens to pursue the enemy
- The children, heroes of this chase, will have to use their logic, observation and analysis to save Paris. It is not necessary to know Paris well to answer the quiz
Our comments about the Miraculous cruise:
- The treasure hunt proposed during the cruise includes elements to read and write. It is therefore recommended that children are old enough to read and write. The youngest ones can still participate in the game with the help of an adult.
- During this cruise, children will be able to see the Grand Palais, the Place de la Concorde and the National Assembly, the Orsay Museum, the Louvre, conciergefrom the City Hall to Notre Dame. The turnaround is done at the level of the Arab World Institute.
- Warning, it is more a show inspired by Miraculous, than a cultural cruise to discover Paris and its monuments

Frequently Asked Questions
Fun but a little hard to follow because of the mix of languages
Written by nadia , on 16-08-2022
my nine year old daughter liked it but was a little lost because of the French/English mix. Perhaps we should have different times for each language. However the activity is fun and well designed.

A full boat for profitability, No air source, No fans, A stifling heat and unbearable with children. Actors rather nice, the mix of English/French average for children!
Written by Sophie SULTANA, on 15-08-2022
Overall my son liked the idea of the games and puzzle solving and seeing his favorite characters in real life. He liked the notebook that was given to him and he will keep it, as well as the pencil. It's still a cruise on the Seine and it's pleasant and appreciable at this level. First of all, I didn't understand the interest of reserving and paying for the tickets several days in advance, only to be told when the time came that they couldn't scan them and that I had to stand in line again (for a very long time, considering the number of people who were waiting and who were mixed: those who wanted to buy a ticket they didn't have and those who, like me, had to exchange this electronic ticket for a paper one to present). Worried about the time that was passing, I went to talk to the people who were controlling the entrance of the boat and they assured me that nobody would leave without us. Well, that's exactly what happened, and if I hadn't called out to someone again we wouldn't have been on the trip. So we went up last and there was no more room in front and not enough to be placed all together. Where we were placed we could not hear well, even if the people were moving. Second: I am not convinced by the idea of alternating English and French. It may not be possible to separate the cruises by language, but switching from one language to another made things confusing. I think my son picked it up pretty quickly, that and because the puzzles were pretty complicated for little ones (5 and under).
Request for postponement of date remains unanswered
Written by Dominique Boukobza , 14-08-2022
I could not participate in the activity because of an unforeseen event beyond my control Will I asked for a postponement of the date and I am still waiting for an answer
Written by Tefi Reina, on 13-08-2022
What we liked: animation, travelogue What we didn't like: the characters kept running, shouting, a bit annoying. One character was missing to complete the play! We had booked on Tuesday and 3 weeks before I was contacted to change the date or to be reimbursed (that changed our program of visits in Paris). Then on arrival with my voucher, the Parisian boats never found us on the list. We were added, fortunately there were places. The scene is still not perfect, my daughter on the way out remembered 2 monuments out of all the monuments that were mentioned in the form of games, maybe because it was a bit hectic?..but otherwise the concept is good. To be continued.
Honestly not good
Written by Joelle Racine, 13-08-2022
interesting show, it would be better to stop more on the monuments rather than it is screams with a very bad sound system throughout the cruise for children it is very difficult to capture the information in this hubbub. more have booked by internet and at the time of embarkation forced to change the paper tickets at the ticket office nothing indicated it is better to take a normal cruise
NOT TO BE RENEWED

Interactive show with children Faithful to the cartoon and 2 good actors to take us into the Disney magic

air conditioning would have been welcome as well as a 3rd character my kids would have liked to see the bad guy
Too many people, too much noise, bad sound system
Written by France SAVELLI, on 04-08-2022
The course and duration are good, the actors dynamic, no difficulty to book, but a pity to be so many locked inside the boat. A lot of noise, bad sound system, we could not hear the instructions, my son did not participate at all in the game.
Written by Lily and Will on 02-08-2022
What we liked were the actors and their dynamism not obvious in this heat. the intention to make a visit of the monuments in a playful way was also rather well thought But in the end, you don't really see the monuments, the children play but don't really look at them. The boat is not very adapted for that if you are not on the window side With the French-English mixture my son was a little lost. We will make again a classic fly boat but with the roof in the open air. A small goodies in addition to the pencil would have been welcome
Written by Céline R, 31-07-2022
I sent 2 requests for reimbursement by email because I had to cancel my trip to Paris due to pregnancy complications but no one deigned to answer me. I am still waiting
Good idea to improve
Written by ARIANE CEDILLE LEFEVRE, 31-07-2022
We were 5, 2 adults and 3 children! The actors were great but the understanding of their words much less and it is not the diction but the fact that they say the text in French then in English then in French then in English ... in short everyone gets lost and we can not be responsive despite their efforts because we do not understand anything and the sound is average! It should be done in French with a booklet in English for tourists or headphones translating the text. Otherwise it was pleasant.
To do but not to do again!
Written by Sophie G, on 30-07-2022
Covered boat, greenhouse effect guaranteed, preferred bcp of water because you will not have any! Characters present it is nice and small bag offered! We have obviously the photo trap to buy at the end (taken at the beginning and not possible to take some with the characters). Attention the history mixes English and French; adult I found that well made but for the very small, it is difficult to follow.
Overall good but organization to be reviewed
Written by Séverine COLLANGE, on 30-07-2022
Nice activity for the children. The actors try to pass as much as possible in the alleys. Too bad for the children who are in the back and who do not benefit from it. Concerning the organization, there are things to review. We bought our tickets and then we booked our slot on your site which allowed us to have dematerialized tickets. On the spot, a young person passed in the queue to see if we were well registered. When we arrived at the ticket control, we were asked to get paper tickets at the counter. In 2022 and in the age of the QR Code (present on the different documents), it's a shame to have to print paper tickets
Nice for children but the actors speak too fast; French and English at the same time which is very confusing for the little ones
Written by Nadine Terny , 29-07-2022
The French-English speech flow is confusing for the children; they don't understand half of it and therefore don't look at the monuments at all
Written by Dominique dumouchel , 27-07-2022
Frankly, no; the result is disappointing compared to the selling point The English/French translation is complicated for children. The sound is really not good. The confetti is very poor and the bubbles are non-existent if you are not in the first two rows. The puzzles are complicated for 6 year olds.
We had a great time
Written by EMINE, on 26-07-2022
We had a good time: discovery of monuments with riddles. The problem is that it was very noisy because there were too many of us. Oh yes, what annoyed me was that the actors spoke more English than French, the two languages were mixed with the hubbub and it was difficult to follow everything. Yet I think that the French were in the majority? Why not make a slot in English only? It's an outing for children anyway, speaking English and French mixed together doesn't help
A very good time with the children
Written by Monique, on 26-07-2022
It was nice to learn while having fun. The only downside was that we were in the back and the kids were sorry that they didn't get the most out of the show. No problems before or during the show I recommend it!
For children under 5 years old, it is not easy to follow the story of the characters, the French and English translation and the tourist sites presented.
Written by Murphy Verger on 25-07-2022
The story is nice and captivates the children. However, they can't look at the sights because between the story, the translation, the game to follow. Too much for children.
ZERO IN ALL AREAS I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT IS A SCAM
Written by BOUTAGHANE FLORE, on 25-07-2022
ZERO CRUISE : no cultural interest for the young and old alike; we learned nothing, didn't even see the monuments. riddles : no explanation ; no clarity (except to hand out a pencil, and... figure it out...) the children were bored for ONE HOUR sound (or rather hubbub): horribly loud heat on the boat : the windows could have been opened... by mixing English and French (to save money) after each sentence, the children do not understand anything; this cruise was however dedicated to them... too expensive because no quality of service I do not recommend, we are very disappointed such a service deserves a refund (95 euros for 3 children and 2 adults) I await your feedback on this point.

Unsuitable for children in summer
Written by aurelie jullian, on 21-07-2022
The music/show was too loud. It was unbearably hot, accentuated by the plexiglass above the boat. Almost no shade in the boat. The kids almost got sunstroke. This activity is for me unsuitable for children in the summer when it is too hot
My daughter had a great time
Written by Maï-Lina Weydert, on 20-07-2022
My daughter had a lot of stars in her eyes thanks to the 2 great actors. On the other hand the sound quality is to be improved one understands only the half. And it is much too hot in the boat for children.
A disappointing organization to review
Written by Vanessa , on 20-07-2022
It is inadmissible to propose a cruise to children alternating French and English, impossible to follow especially for what is supposed to be a puzzle game. Make dedicated sessions for French and English speakers instead of looking for profitability at all costs! The boat is not suitable for a visit, too firm and does not allow to see the monuments well. Riddles in the brochure were poorly constructed and uninteresting. Great disappointment for my daughter who was expecting better than that according to her! In short, the concept is good but the organization is not.
I find that it is noisy we do not understand everything we can not even take pictures with them too bad for children price level is expensive for what we had
Written by Souad Labbe, on 19-07-2022
I find it expensive for what we had moreover the children cannot even take photographs with them too bad moreover it is noisy we listen practically mak
Written by Marie-Christine Hoffmann, on 18-07-2022
Just a small criticism: the children in the back rows are penalized because the actors don't often stop by to see them and interact with them
This cruise did not take place
Written by Daniele JOUBAIRE, on 18-07-2022
Unfortunately, I could not participate in this activity because my 7 year old daughters were sick. They regretted it a lot and so did I, unfortunately not being able to cancel or postpone this cruise already paid too early.
Do not expect to see any monuments?
Written by Laurence Ruscart, on 16-07-2022
Le style de bateau (pas de pont extérieur et toit en verre opaque) ne permet pas de voir les monuments?? alors qu?en gros, c est pour ça qu?on choisit une croisière sur la Seine, c est à dire pour voir les monuments!!!!! très chouette spectacle à bord bien qu un peu rapide pour tout suivre (alternance anglais-français)
Written by Ho, on 16-07-2022
Exceptionally hot and no fans or air circulation on boat. Was very difficult to enjoy what was going on because we were profusely sweating in the heat and there were no fans besides the first row to cool off all the bodies on the boat. Would suggest checking the weather before u book. Also boat is mostly in French w hints of w/ English. The kids seemed to enjoy the Ladybug and Cat Noir appearance but it was hard to follow or do the puzzle hunt. We probably wouldn't recommend as our kids couldn't follow what they were supposed to do. Reservations were easy to make.
There is no cultural input
Written by Déborah, on 16-07-2022
I offered this cruise to my 2 daughters, almost 5 and 8 years old. The surprise effect of the characters is nice, it makes a show. But besides that there is no cultural contribution. Very difficult to follow the show because the dialogue is French/English. The children can't understand so they don't follow. On top of that, we were on the wrong side of the boat, so we couldn't see the buildings we had to observe during the puzzles. The kids liked to see their favorite characters, but clearly there was nothing left of the monuments, at the same time there was nothing to remember. It's a pity.
Written by CHARLENE DOUVIN, on 15-07-2022
Activity realized with a 5 years old child. We don't understand anything in the dialogues, half French and half English? anything? even as an adult. The sound is much too strong. Not a single place of shade in the boat? To finish, the tickets bought on the internet did not work, we had to go back to the ticket office in a monstrous queue to get the right tickets to scan? disappointing? overall score 2 for the employees who are nice despite everything.
Parisian boats miraculos
Written by mireille BRION, on 13-07-2022
Frankly I find that miraculos is null for the children I took my little girl she did not understand anything they shout they speak more often in English than in French she was very disappointed I spoke with people present on the boat who said the same thing I think they would do better to tell the history of the monuments
Cacophony + children's games could be simplified and more playful?!
Written by Michel FAVIER, on 11-07-2022
No I don't recommend And it's a pity because it seems easy to do better? with the same means

This cruise is brand new and your feedback will be useful to the organizers. We are sending them your very mixed opinion. We are sorry that this cruise did not meet your expectations.
Written by STEPHANIE LEFEVRE, 06-07-2022
When you arrive at the pier, it is very easy to find the pontoon, it is very well indicated. In the queue, a person comes to check your tickets and asks you to go through the ticket office again. I don't understand the interest of setting up online tickets if it's to go back to the ticket office... waste of time. RAS for the pick up on the boat. As far as the cruise is concerned, I thought I understood that each child would be equipped with a helmet but in fact not at all. The animators give the explanations by microphone. In spite of their good will to speak softly and to articulate, the noise is such that we understand almost nothing. Indeed the boat is full of children? I found that a pity, I think that this system should be reviewed. Also, this cruise is not playful enough, it missed the presentation of the monuments to the children, of Paris, a little bit of culture would have been welcome especially since the cartoon Miraculous is full of knowledge. My 6 year old daughter really appreciated the proximity of the animators even if she didn't understand the riddles because of the noise. Indeed, each of them took the time to go through the rows, to stop a few moments after the children and even to come and greet them at the end. Overall it was a great experience for the children but some things could be improved.
Written by Inesrabe, on 02-07-2022
My child had a hard time understanding the English-French passages. The 2 languages should be distinguished. The wait for the villain made for suspenseful storytelling. But the arrival of the villain would have been a plus. Good continuation
NOT CANCELABLE EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF A HEAT WAVE
Written by Maëlle , on 21-06-2022
It is a pity that tickets are neither exchangeable nor refundable, even in case of force majeure like a heat wave. While the government itself advocates to avoid going out...
Reply from FamilinParis
Hello madam, to our knowledge you have not contacted us to ask for a postponement of this cruise. Indeed, tickets are usually neither exchangeable nor refundable except in exceptional cases and with the agreement of Bateaux-Parisiens.
