Starting this fall, travelers can experience a meal by celebrity chef Alain Ducasse on an all-new ship along Paris' Seine River.

The 200-passenger, all-electric Ducasse Sur Seine launches in September, offering either lunch or dinner onboard, ranging from a $115 three-course lunch to a $570 five-course dinner paired with wine and champagne. There is also a $40 option for an afternoon sweet and savory tea time on the rooftop with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

The three-course lunch includes items such as sea bream gravlax, guinea fowl and duck foie gras and line-caught Pollock with shellfish "a la mariniere," followed by hazelnut and citrus shortbread, oven-baked figs with fig tree ice cream or a Parisian chocolate composition. The five-course dinner menu also 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.

All cruises are open for booking.
