Dinner Cruise Vibes Turn to Concern
During Notre Dame Inferno

Michelle Obama was living the good life — sipping wine on a dinner cruise in Paris — when the Notre Dame Cathedral fire totally changed the mood … and the course of the cruise.
The former First Lady was smiling as she boarded the Ducasse du Seine Monday night — just across from the Eiffel Tower — for a dinner cruise experience along the Seine River with famous chef Alain Ducasse and others.
Michelle looked fit for a fancy, fun night on the luxury ship … but things took a turn for the worse when word got around Notre Dame was going up in flames. As you can see in the pics … everybody’s happy faces turn concerned for the famed cathedral and the people of Paris.
The majesty of Notre Dame—the history, artistry, and spirituality—took our breath away, lifting us to a higher understanding of who we are and who we can be. Being here in Paris tonight, my heart aches with the people of France. Yet I know that Notre Dame will soon awe us again. https://t.co/p1mIDMbwe1

We’re told the boat’s captain ultimately made the decision to take a different route than planned for the cruise to avoid the Notre Dame fire … and dinner was still served.
As we reported … the cathedral is still standing after the massive fire, but the restoration process will be long and difficult.
BTW — Michelle was in Paris for a conference at the AccorHotels Arena … as part of her book tour for her best-seller, “Becoming.”
