- An hour with Lady Bug
Written by valerie , on 11-09-2023
Hello, An hour spent in a boat on the Seine with the Miraculous characters during the heatwave. My daughter liked it, although she was a bit stunned by the energy of the two actors: it was difficult to understand them, both because of the young woman's rapid speech and because of the story. No reference to the monuments we passed and/or no precise plan to help us find our way around. Reference to last year, but we weren't there, so got lost again. Our 6-year-old loved it...especially the bubbles at the end and the well-known song....c is the main thing. It's expensive but she got glitter in her eyes. In addition to the 15euros for the photo. Bravo in any case for the two actors: 37C, in their costumes and still very dynamic!
- Not bad without more
Written by AGNES THOMAS, 09-09-2023
Easy online booking. Comfortable boarding and installation. Good visibility of the show. The actors do their best to make the show lively. They're very handsome. The problem: the texts are difficult to understand and too long for a young audience. The historical references are complicated for young children. We came with our 7-year-old granddaughter, who saw the film, but she wasn't all that enchanted. The other children weren't enthusiastic either. We should have shown the monuments. ESPECIALLY LESS TEXT

- Too fast
Written by Denis CASTELET, 01-09-2023
The costumes are superb and the acting perfect. But the flow of the text is too fast, and too much information has to be integrated at once. What's more, there's not enough emphasis on the relationship between the scenario and the Paris monuments visible from the boat. In short, it's a good idea, but there's room for improvement.
- Cruise very expensive for the service
Written by Sarah or Mohamed Haddad , 31-08-2023
Expensive miraculous cruise for 6 people ... The hourly service is not suitable for everyone. A lot of people didn't understand French and I could see the people on the boat falling asleep because the story itself wasn't interesting. My children only loved miraculous and chat noir in disguise, and even they were cold I thought... No connection. The photo is basic...and without the characters. Small point: black cat doesn't have green eyes. And miraculous doesn't have blue eyes, so it's a mistake anyway... There's work to be done ... The staff is cold... Too bad... I hope it will be better next year... To be seen...

We booked on the internet but arrived at the boat unable to read the qrcode. We had to go back to the store where we were informed that our order had not been registered but payment had been made. As a result, we checked in after everyone else, with the last seats at the back of the boat where the sound was bad. Very disappointing, fortunately the weather was fine.

The Parisian monuments play a role in the script: I'm a bit sorry that I had to be the one to point them out to the children. Point out Napoleon's N on the bridge, for example, and don't just use the actors' props. Nevertheless, the children were happy, and that's what counts! I'll be back at the end of August with the other three grandchildren!
- Not bad, but...
Written by Ophélie, on 30-07-2023
It's a pity that the story told by Lady Bug and Black Cat took over too much from the walk and the discovery of the monuments. In the end, my daughter was glued to the characters and saw nothing of the monuments... But we still had a great time! The actors are top-notch!

Written by Lady Bug de Gironde, 18-07-2023
A great time with the kids. The actors are very committed and attentive to the children's needs. The city of Paris is well presented, but the story is a little complicated to follow, and would benefit from a little streamlining so that children can better understand and appreciate the monuments of Paris. The booklet is top-notch and very clear.

After waiting from 10:00 to 10:30 under a blazing sun, we were told that the cruise was cancelled due to a technical problem with the boat. 2 solutions were proposed: another classic belief (no interest with a 5 year old girl!) or a refund ... with another long wait under the sun ... so I did not get a refund.

Not recommended for children who can't read. Complicated puzzles, 5- and 6-year-olds may not know the Mona Lisa painting. Explanations out of sync with the monuments we see. Very frustrating. The previous version with clowns was 100 times better, but with this one the children don't discover Paris, it's more like a show on a boat.

Although I can understand why, we found the sound a little too loud, so after an hour we were a little bored (my daughter and myself). Once again, I'd like to emphasize the fine performance of the actress and actor. They're really in tune with the story and really get you into the mood.

My 4 year old daughter enjoyed seeing her favourite characters... My 8-year-old daughter didn't find them very believable.... on the other hand, the half-English show was a pain...
Written by Claire Masson , 03-11-2022
The actors are all over the place and it's cute, but that's the only good thing about it. The fast-paced speech and alternating French and English make it difficult to understand. The children don't take their eyes off the actors, so they don't look at the monuments around them at all, which is a real shame. The riddles in the booklet are not suitable for 5-6 year-olds, and the volume is very loud, which is dangerous for the ears of little ones who often accompany the rest of the family on this kind of activity. The fact that you have to queue up to exchange a ticket you've already paid for and printed, in order to get a counter-ticket on the spot, is utter nonsense. The so-called special queue didn't open until 15 minutes before departure time, so those who waited were the last to get on the boat. Yes, you have to queue again to get on the boat, and it's long because there's a photographer who takes photos of each family, hoping to sell the photo at the exit (where you have to queue again to see the photo...). For an hour on the boat, we had to wait 1 hour, splitting up with my husband to be in the 2 queues at the same time (for the ticket then for the boat) and we were in the 2nd half of the people to get on. I'd say that if the kids aren't big Miraculous fans, don't go for this cruise, as our whole family was disappointed...

De show is in het Engels en Frans. Ook al spreekt mijn dochter enkel Nederlands, ze was betoverd door het enthousiasme van de acteurs! We waren met veel op de boot, maar toch kregen we het gevoel dat we enkele keren echt persoonlijk contact hadden met de cat Noir en Ladybug waardoor we echt in het verhaal werden gezogen. Mijn dochter vond het zelf heel leuk dat ze haar "miraculeus" kreeg en op de gebouwen aanwijzingen moest zoeken. Via toneel op kinderniveau leer je de gebouwen langs de Seine kennen.

The reception is well organized, and the photos are pretty, if a little expensive. The animation with the 2 heroes is rather noisy, the games are well thought out, but the children are still confused by the bilingual aspect, although we must salute the great energy of the actors, with whom unfortunately the children can't take a photo, and their good English accent. This allows children to discover Parisian monuments with their favorite heroes, but I'm not convinced that they understood or retained much.

The actors were a lot of fun and tried to get the kids involved as much as possible. It's a pity that the boat doesn't always let you see the monuments properly, despite the Plexiglas roof. The middle seats are a little less interesting. The search for clues sometimes goes a little too quickly, even if we understand that there's a timing to be respected. It would be nice if the embarkation point were better indicated at the docks, to avoid missing the cruise. But all in all, a fine cruise, much appreciated by the children.

My children and I really enjoyed the acting and the puzzles. On the negative side, although I had prepaid tickets and booked several days in advance, I had to wait again at the cash desk - at least it must have been mentioned on the tickets to allow more time in advance. We also couldn't see certain buildings depending on where we were sitting. Overall, it was a good experience, just these two points to improve.

Written by Sophie SULTANA, 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 and is going to keep it, as well as the pencil. It's still a cruise on the Seine, and it's pleasant and enjoyable in that respect. Firstly, I didn't understand the point of reserving and paying for tickets several days in advance, only to be told when the time came that they couldn't be scanned, and that I'd have to queue again (a very long time, considering the number of people waiting and the mix of people waiting: those who wanted to buy a ticket they didn't have, and those like me who had to exchange the electronic ticket for a paper one to show). Worried about the passage of time, I went to speak to the people controlling the entrance to the boat and they assured me that no one would leave without us. Well, that's exactly what happened, and if I hadn't called out to someone again, we wouldn't have made the trip. So we got on last, and there was no more room at the front, and not enough to place us all together. Where we were placed, we couldn't hear very well, even if the people were moving around. Next: I'm 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 the other made things confusing. I think my son picked it up pretty quickly, that and because the puzzles were rather complicated for little ones (5 and under).

What we liked: animation, travelogue What we didn't like: the characters kept running and 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 be reimbursed (this changed our program of visits to Paris). Then on arrival with my voucher, the Parisian boats never found us on the list. We were added to the list, luckily there were seats available. The stage is not yet perfected, my daughter 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.
- Frankly not very good
Written by Joelle Racine, 13-08-2022
interesting show, it would be preferable to stop more on the monuments rather than this is howls 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 preferable to take a normal cruise

Bilingualism prevents comprehension Comments on "monuments" inaudible or even non-existent Second time I've tried these special cruises with children, an experience not to be repeated.

- Too many people, too much noise, poor sound system
Written by France SAVELLI, 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. Lots of noise, poor sound system, instructions hard to hear, so my son didn't take part at all.
- Not bad
Written by Lily and Will, 02-08-2022
What we really liked were the actors, bravo to them and their dynamism, which is not easy in this heat. The idea of a fun tour of the monuments was also well thought out. But in the end, you don't really get to see the monuments, as the children play but don't really look. The boat isn't very well suited to this if you're not on the window side. With the French-English mix, my son was a bit lost. We'll do a classic fly boat again, but with the roof in the open air. A little goodie in addition to the pencil would have been welcome.

- Good idea but needs improvement
Written by ARIANE CEDILLE LEFEVRE, 31-07-2022
There were 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 children! The actors were great, but understanding their words was much less so, and it's 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't react despite their efforts because we understand nothing and the sound is average! In short, everyone got lost and we couldn't react despite their efforts, because we couldn't understand anything and the sound was average! It should be done in French with an English booklet for tourists, or with headphones translating the text. Otherwise it was pleasant.
- Do it, but don't do it again!
Written by Sophie G, 30-07-2022
Covered boat, greenhouse effect guaranteed, prefer bcp of water as you won't get any! Characters present, it's great, and a little bag offered! Of course, there's the photo trap to buy at the end (taken at the beginning and impossible to take with the characters). Be careful, the story mixes English and French; for adults I thought it was well done, but for the very young it's hard to follow.
- Good overall, but organization needs to be reviewed
Written by Séverine COLLANGE, 30-07-2022
Fun activity for the kids. The actors try to get through the aisles as much as possible. Too bad for the kids in the back who don't get to enjoy it. As far as organization is concerned, there are things to be reviewed. We bought our tickets and then reserved our slot on your site, which enabled us to have dematerialized tickets. When we got there, a young person went through the queue to check that we'd registered. When we got to ticket control, we were asked to get paper tickets at the counter. In 2022 and in the age of the QR Code (present on various documents), it's shameful to have to print out paper tickets.
- Fun for kids, 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 , 07-29-2022
The French-English speech flow is confusing for 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 sales pitch. The English/French translation is complicated for children. The confetti is very poor and the bubbles non-existent if you're not in the first two rows. The puzzles are complicated for 6-year-olds.
- We had a great time
Written by EMINE, 26-07-2022
We had a great time: discovering monuments with the riddles. The problem was that it was very noisy, as there were far too many of us. Ah yes, what annoyed me was that the actors spoke more English than French, the 2 languages were mixed with the hubbub it was difficult to follow everything. And yet I think the French were in the majority? Why not have an English-only slot? It's a children's outing after all, and speaking English and French mixed together doesn't help.
- A great time with the kids
Written by Monique, 26-07-2022
It was fun to learn while having fun. The only downside was that we were in the back and the kids regretted not getting the most out of the show. No problems before or during the show I'd recommend it!
- For children under 5, it's not easy to follow the story of the characters, the French and English translations and the tourist sites presented.
Written by Murphy Verger, on 25-07-2022
The story is fun and captivates children. On the other hand, they can't look at the tourist sites, because between the story, the translation and the game to follow. Too much for kids.

Written by BOUTAGHANE FLORE, on 25-07-2022
LOUSY CRUISE : no cultural interest for young and old alike; we learned nothing, didn't even see the monuments. riddles: no explanation; no clarity (apart from handing 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 (for reasons of economy) after each sentence, the children understood nothing; yet this cruise was dedicated to them... too expensive because of the lack of quality service I don't recommend it, we're very disappointed a service like this 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, 21-07-2022
The music/show was too loud. The heat was unbearable, accentuated by the Plexiglas over the boat. Hardly any shade in the boat. The little ones almost broke out in sunstroke. In my opinion, this activity is unsuitable for children in summer when it's too hot.
- My daughter had a great time
Written by Maï-Lina Weydert, 20-07-2022
My daughter had lots of stars in her eyes thanks to the 2 great actors. On the other hand, the sound quality needs to be improved - you can only understand half of it. And it's much too hot in the boat for children.
- A disappointing organization
Written by Vanessa , 20-07-2022
It's unacceptable to offer a cruise to children in 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 seeking profitability at all costs! Boat unsuitable for a visit, too firm to see the monuments properly. Riddles in the brochure poorly constructed and uninteresting. A big disappointment for my daughter, who was expecting better than this! In short, the concept is fine, but the organization is not.
- I find it noisy we don't understand everything we can't even take pictures with them too bad for the kids price-wise it's expensive for what we got

- Very good
Written by Marie-Christine Hoffmann, 18-07-2022
Just one small criticism: the children in the back rows are penalized because the actors don't often drop in to see them and interact with them.
- This cruise did not take place
Written by Daniele JOUBAIRE, 18-07-2022
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take part in this activity, as my 7-year-old granddaughters were ill. They were very sorry and so was I, as I was unable to cancel or postpone this cruise, which had already been paid for too early.
- Don't expect to see any monuments...
Written by Laurence Ruscart, 16-07-2022
The style of boat (no outside deck and opaque glass roof) doesn't allow you to see the monuments...... when, in fact, that's why you choose a cruise on the Seine, i.e. to see the monuments!!!!! very nice show on board, although a little quick to follow everything (alternating English and French).
- Miraculous review
Written by Ho, 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 was 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's no cultural input
Written by Déborah, 16-07-2022
I gave this cruise to my 2 daughters, aged almost 5 and 8. The surprise effect of the characters is nice, it makes for a show. But apart from that, there's no cultural contribution. It's very difficult to follow the show because the dialogue is French/English. Children can't understand it, so they lose interest. On top of that, we were on the wrong side of the boat, so we couldn't see the buildings we were supposed to observe during the puzzles. The kids enjoyed seeing their favorite characters, but there was clearly nothing left of the monuments. It's a shame.
- Very average
Written by CHARLENE DOUVIN, 15-07-2022
Activity performed with a 5-year-old child. You can't understand any of the dialogue, which is half French and half English... nonsense... even as an adult. The sound is far too loud. Not a single shady spot in the boat.... Finally, the tickets bought on the internet didn't work, so we had to queue again at the ticket office to get the right tickets to scan... disappointing... overall score 2 for the employees, who are nice despite everything.
- Bateaux parisiens miraculos

Frankly, I think Miraculos sucks for children. I took my granddaughter with me and she didn't understand a thing, they shout and speak more often in English than in French.

This is a brand-new cruise, 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.
- Nice but...
Written by STEPHANIE LEFEVRE, 06-07-2022
When you arrive at the quay, it's easy to find the pontoon - it's very well signposted. In the queue, someone comes to check your tickets and asks you to go through the ticket office again. I don't understand the point of setting up online tickets if you have to queue again at the ticket office... waste of time. Pick-up on the boat was fine. As for the cruise, I had understood that each child would be equipped with a helmet, but in fact not at all. The animators gave explanations by microphone. Despite their willingness to speak softly and articulately, the noise is such that you can hardly understand anything. Indeed, the boat is full of children... I thought this was a pity, and that the system should be reviewed. Also, this cruise isn't fun enough, it lacks a presentation of the monuments and Paris to the children, and a little culture would have been welcome, especially as the Miraculous cartoon is full of knowledge. My 6-year-old daughter greatly 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. All in all, it was a great experience for the children, but some things could be improved.

My child had trouble understanding the English-French passages. The 2 languages should be distinguished. The wait for the villain added suspense to the story. But the arrival of the villain would have been a plus. Bonne continuation

It's a pity that tickets are neither exchangeable nor refundable, even in the case of an act of God such as a heatwave. At a time when the government itself recommends avoiding outings...

Hello madam, to our knowledge you have not contacted us to request a postponement of this cruise. In fact, tickets are usually neither exchangeable nor refundable, except in exceptional cases and with the agreement of Bateaux-Parisiens.
