Shrek’s Adventure

Combine a river cruise with a visit to the kingdom of Far Far Away. Enjoy a madcap Shrek adventure where amazing DreamWorks animation and captivating story-telling await.

Be part of the 10 live fairy-tale themed shows where you can visit Shrek’s swamp, find your fortune in the crystal ball, get lost in the Mirror maze and reveal your inner Ogre when needed!
 
During your adventure you’ll meet many characters (princesses and donkeys included), but as in all fairy tales you may also encounter a witch or two, which some of the younger audience may find scary!

    ★★

    I booked this cruise as a belated birthday present for my wife. I was under the impression that it was an evening meal accompanied by music from shows and musicals whilst cruising down theThames. Unfortunately, the first thing which struck me was that the meal was a set menu. This had not been stated and I thought that there should have at the very least been a choice of meals! We were also rarther hurriedly shown to our seats and then served our starter, while other passengers were still boarding. When we were served our main course the singer introduced herself and started to sing a medley of various songs, none of which were from shows or musicals. In fact I counted only 4 songs from shows or musicals before she finished and the entertainment turned into a disco. The views from the boat were superb but unfortunately I could have got these by travelling by water taxi and saved myself time and money! I feel that I did not receive value for money as the entertainment I had expected was lacking and the meal was pretty basic and rushed. While I appreciate that serving food and keeping it warm on a boat is difficult, as mentioned earlier a choice of food would have been preferable and more than 4 songs from shows would have been appreciated! In a semblance of fairness I would like to say that the staff at city cruises were great, especially as due to low tides we had to get off at Tower rather than Victoria Pier. I was notified of this through text, email and a phone call the day before,so your booking team is first class!

    ★★

    Afternoon Tea was very disappointing. Had 8 sandwiches but only 2 options and one of the options my mum (who I went with) didn't like! No explanation of anything was and scones only came with currants, which I'm not particularly keen on. Travelled from West Sussex and wasn't worth the train ticket of I'm being honest.

    16 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    The cruise was better than expected, the food was superb, again better than I would have hoped for. The down side, Whilst visiting the toilet one of the waiters came in used the toilet and just splashed water on his hands instead of washing them as You would have hoped for. When challenged about this behaviour, he was ambivalent, was not bothered in the slightest. The commentary provided, pointing out important London landmarks and facts along the way was provided by someone who's delivery was very poor, the speaker system mad it almost impossible to hear and to give the chap his due, he admitted he was no professional guide.

    Thames Jazz Cruise

    09 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    The tables are packed in like sardines in a tin. Difficult not to knock people when walking down the aisle. Starter is on your table when you are seated so you get to take the cling film off yourself! Food is average but we did have a very nice bottle of wine, not cheap though. The cruise is as expected and seeing the sites lit up was lovely and the Jazz was very good but no dancing. This was a present so I don't know how much it cost. Probably wouldn't do again but enjoyed the evening overall.

    Afternoon Tea

    09 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    I’ve given 4 stars because the tea was extremely weak - coloured water! I asked for tea bags and the waitress came back very quickly with enough to last the trip. I was then able to get tea to my taste however, if you like strong tea you would struggle with the type of tea bags used. The staff were very friendly and efficient, coming round regularly with tea and coffee. Although I would have preferred a teapot on the table. The commentary was good, given by a local Londoner. It was a bit difficult to follow at first, Until I realised if you were facing forward your left was the commentators right! Made more enjoyable by the fact that when we had finished eating we could go onto the top deck. Over all, very good value for money

    We enjoyed the cruise and the tea. We had a table of four but did not know the 2 people next to us. The tables are very close together and the seats are joined. One of the ladies was up and down all the time and my wife was jolted everytime. The tea was served at the start of the cruise and we really missed the more interesting part of the cruise up to Westminster as we were below deck. One of the waitresses spilt some coffee on my wife but did not even apologise! By the time we finished our tea we were able to go on deck and see the delights of Canary Wharf! We were not able to hear the safety talk at the start of the cruise as the tannoy was garbled and we could not hear what I assume was an enlightening talk along the way because of that. It was only when we went on deck we could hear what was being said. That being said we enjoyed the cruise very much.

    Such a fun evening! Ate delicious food, sat on the deck upstarts between courses looking at the amazing view. Singer was excellent and the music they played later on was great. Some people got up and danced from the tables, others stayed sat down. Brilliant evening for couples/families/birthday celebration. Thank you! And thank you to Vasile, fantastic waiter who catered to all our needs.

    ★★

    Afternoon Tea was very disappointing. Had 8 sandwiches but only 2 options and one of the options my mum (who I went with) didn't like! No explanation of anything was and scones only came with currants, which I'm not particularly keen on. Travelled from West Sussex and wasn't worth the train ticket of I'm being honest.

  • Lunch Cruise

    ★★★

    The cruise was better than expected, the food was superb, again better than I would have hoped for. The down side, Whilst visiting the toilet one of the waiters came in used the toilet and just splashed water on his hands instead of washing them as You would have hoped for. When challenged about this behaviour, he was ambivalent, was not bothered in the slightest. The commentary provided, pointing out important London landmarks and facts along the way was provided by someone who's delivery was very poor, the speaker system mad it almost impossible to hear and to give the chap his due, he admitted he was no professional guide.

    Initially I thought it was a bit expensive, and I did opt for the additional bottle of wine as I wasn't sure 1 bottle for 2 of us would be enough, but it was just right. They did still give us the 2nd bottle for us to take home tho as a nice little souvenir

  • Thames Jazz Cruise

    09 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    The tables are packed in like sardines in a tin. Difficult not to knock people when walking down the aisle. Starter is on your table when you are seated so you get to take the cling film off yourself! Food is average but we did have a very nice bottle of wine, not cheap though. The cruise is as expected and seeing the sites lit up was lovely and the Jazz was very good but no dancing. This was a present so I don't know how much it cost. Probably wouldn't do again but enjoyed the evening overall.

  • Afternoon Tea

    09 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    I’ve given 4 stars because the tea was extremely weak - coloured water! I asked for tea bags and the waitress came back very quickly with enough to last the trip. I was then able to get tea to my taste however, if you like strong tea you would struggle with the type of tea bags used. The staff were very friendly and efficient, coming round regularly with tea and coffee. Although I would have preferred a teapot on the table. The commentary was good, given by a local Londoner. It was a bit difficult to follow at first, Until I realised if you were facing forward your left was the commentators right! Made more enjoyable by the fact that when we had finished eating we could go onto the top deck. Over all, very good value for money

    We enjoyed the cruise and the tea. We had a table of four but did not know the 2 people next to us. The tables are very close together and the seats are joined. One of the ladies was up and down all the time and my wife was jolted everytime. The tea was served at the start of the cruise and we really missed the more interesting part of the cruise up to Westminster as we were below deck. One of the waitresses spilt some coffee on my wife but did not even apologise! By the time we finished our tea we were able to go on deck and see the delights of Canary Wharf! We were not able to hear the safety talk at the start of the cruise as the tannoy was garbled and we could not hear what I assume was an enlightening talk along the way because of that. It was only when we went on deck we could hear what was being said. That being said we enjoyed the cruise very much.
