    From the moment we were on board until our departure 3 hours later we loved the experience - good service, delicious 3-course meal and London by night with its amazing sights, especially the approach to Tower Bridge which was truly impressive. Would definitely recommend this cruise!

    an excellent evening with good food, hot and well presented accompanied by quality musicians and singers. Would recommend and we hope to do this again sometime.


    16 Apr 2018

    ★★★★★

    Food better than expected and plenty of it. Good music, second half jazz band and first half jazz based and some Motown solo singing. Good service. Note that if they come round with liqueurs they are not free, otherwise wine reasonably priced.

    From start to finish - brilliant. Helped on board and shown to our table - polite and friendly waiting staff were always available to take drinks orders and serve food. The Jazz Band played at just the right volume. Delightful way to see the banks of the Thames at night. Thoroughly recommended.

    I highly recommended the Jazz Cruise


    27 Mar 2018

    ★★★

    It was strange that the starters were already on the table before our arrival. My tip: Seek a table next to the window otherwise you can't really experience the feeling of being on a ship. There are tables for groups up to 4 people so if you are party of 6, 2 of you need to sit on a different table. The food is mediocre but the staff is helpful. Be prepared to tip in the end! The jazz performers were fine :)


    11 Mar 2018

    ★★★

    The service was great, but the food was pretty poor to be honest and the music a bit too loud, so that you had to shout at the person sat across the table.


    11 Mar 2018

    ★★★★

    La croisière etait très bien organisée, les serveurs agréables et voir les monuments de Londres la nuit etait réellement magique. Le point négatif est que la musique était trop forte et nous ne pouvions pas discuter tranquillement.
