Michelle Obama on Paris Dinner Cruise During Notre Dame Cathedral Fire

Michelle Obama

Dinner Cruise Vibes Turn to Concern

During Notre Dame Inferno

4/16/2019 8:56 AM PDT

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.

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.”
