WE HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW ON A GOOD NIGHT OUT   - London's Showboat Dinner Cruise on the river Thames

 

The best night in town is on the river! 

Wine, dine and dance on this great dinner cruise on the Thames, see spectacular views and enjoy show songs and top hits sung by a live performer. Your evening begins the moment you step aboard and are handed a welcome glass of fizz as our singer begins to entertain you and a friendly waiter serves a delicious starter. 

Your ticket includes:

  • A three-hour river cruise
  • A delicious four course meal
  • Sparkling wine on arrival
  • Half bottle of wine per guest
  • Live performer and dancing till late
 

Things just get better as you hum along to the variety of music from pop tunes to musicals that accompany your delicious four course dinner and half bottle of wine per guest.  

Stunning views are on the menu too, as the inky-dark night along great vistas of riverscape gives way to the spectacular lighting of Thames-side buildings.

    ★★★★

    The cruise was a great idea. We had an enjoyable evening looking at the Christmas lights from the Thames also the meal was quite good. We moored up down the river at City Cruise's jetty and I suggested that it was where the main course and desert were being picked up - and to my own surprise I was right. The only BIG negative was the drinks. We paid the difference of £2.50 to upgrade to the South African Shiraz, it was awful and we would have been better to have stuck with the cheaper wine. Also, we asked for a bottle of water and received a large bottle that was too much and too expensive -shame. Despite everything the staff were helpful and friendly.

    The Service was very good and the food was excellent but the boat was very worn and tiered. The lighting and sound was very poor. I have been doing this cruise for a number of years now and the last time we did it we were on a boat with tables for four and not long tables for ten.


    18 Dec 2018

    The boat is nothing like that shown in the pictures on the website. a very basic ferry type boat and the seats were dirty and broken. The showboat element was a joke, it was a singer with a backing track more like Karaoke than a showboat performance. The food was good. I would not recommend this trip. very expensive for a third rate experience

    I was disappointed as it was not what I booked I had booked for the showboat cruise and got the Jazz Cruise. The staff were very good I was thinking off booking again but not sure as I did not get what I paid for this time

    ★★★★

    Bell'esperienza di cena a bordo della nave. Unica pecca la cantante, molto brava, ha cantato solo per un breve momento invece che per tutta la durata della cena / crociera come descritto. Consigliato.


    30 Nov 2018

    ★★★★

    We booked a show tunes and dinner cruise. It started very well when we were greeted on board by the friendly staff and shown to our window table.The entertainer was good and got everyone joining in and singing and clapping along. The 4 course meal was very nice. What spoiled it a bit for us was the very loud jazz band who played for the last hour or so. It wasn't music you could dance to and I noticed a lot of people looking at their phones by the end. Clearly we weren't the only ones who felt disconnected. It was a bit of a disappointing end to what could have been an excellent evening on a cold, wet night in London.


    28 Nov 2018

    ★★★

    Friendly staff My meal was nice and was vegan as I requested. However, I was still given dairy which isn’t vegan and I was not offered an alternative.


    27 Nov 2018

    ★★★★

    Overall it was a great experience. The views were lovely, the service was fab, and all the other guests were so friendly. One thing that did let me down however was the food. I don’t eat any sort of seafood, and we had no other option than raw salmon/prawns for the starter. The main course also didn’t seem like a ‘dinner party’ food to me, it was just chicken with mashed potatoes. The dessert was probably the only dish I enjoyed. I’m glad I went however I wouldn’t go again.


  • 27 Nov 2018

    ★★★★

    The cruise was very good. The layout was 2 and 4 people tables so offered a degree of separation from the other cruisers. Though if the boat had been full that would have been much less. The food and drink was good and served well spaced out over the three hour cruise. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. It was an interesting contrast to see London at night, with many buildings lit up; being on the river is the only way to experience it. On the other hand, it is far more difficult to identify all the buildings in the dark. There was some attempt to point out what was there, but it could have been more and for longer - and is the reason for the loss of a star in the rating. Having said that, I would recommend this cruise.


    27 Nov 2018

    ★★★

    Chicken at the dinner was way overdone and dry. Entertainment was good.

    The dinner cruise on the Thames is a must for any visitor to London. Apart from the delicious food and courteous, friendly wait staff, the sight of the city and bridges at night from the perspective of the river is an experience not forgotten.


    14 Nov 2018

    ★★★★★

    The whole experience from start to finish was something we will remember forever. We had had a very emotional weekend at the Royal Albert Hall for the festival of remembrance and a service on HMS Belfast, and the cruise just finished the weekend perfectly for us. We hope to book again next year.

    17 Oct 2018

    ★★

    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!

And thank you to Vasile, fantastic waiter who catered to all our needs.

    We loved the cruise the food was excellent the waiting staff were very professional. The music had me singing along and even on the dance floor towards the end. A lovely memory to celebrate a 65 Birthday.

    I was disappointed as it was not what I booked I had booked for the showboat cruise and got the Jazz Cruise. The staff were very good I was thinking off booking again but not sure as I did not get what I paid for this time

    Bell'esperienza di cena a bordo della nave. Unica pecca la cantante, molto brava, ha cantato solo per un breve momento invece che per tutta la durata della cena / crociera come descritto. Consigliato.

    We booked a show tunes and dinner cruise. It started very well when we were greeted on board by the friendly staff and shown to our window table.The entertainer was good and got everyone joining in and singing and clapping along. The 4 course meal was very nice. What spoiled it a bit for us was the very loud jazz band who played for the last hour or so. It wasn't music you could dance to and I noticed a lot of people looking at their phones by the end. Clearly we weren't the only ones who felt disconnected. It was a bit of a disappointing end to what could have been an excellent evening on a cold, wet night in London.

    Friendly staff My meal was nice and was vegan as I requested. However, I was still given dairy which isn’t vegan and I was not offered an alternative.

    Overall it was a great experience. The views were lovely, the service was fab, and all the other guests were so friendly. One thing that did let me down however was the food. I don’t eat any sort of seafood, and we had no other option than raw salmon/prawns for the starter. The main course also didn’t seem like a ‘dinner party’ food to me, it was just chicken with mashed potatoes. The dessert was probably the only dish I enjoyed. I’m glad I went however I wouldn’t go again.

    The cruise was very good. The layout was 2 and 4 people tables so offered a degree of separation from the other cruisers. Though if the boat had been full that would have been much less. The food and drink was good and served well spaced out over the three hour cruise. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. It was an interesting contrast to see London at night, with many buildings lit up; being on the river is the only way to experience it. On the other hand, it is far more difficult to identify all the buildings in the dark. There was some attempt to point out what was there, but it could have been more and for longer - and is the reason for the loss of a star in the rating. Having said that, I would recommend this cruise.

    The dinner cruise on the Thames is a must for any visitor to London. Apart from the delicious food and courteous, friendly wait staff, the sight of the city and bridges at night from the perspective of the river is an experience not forgotten.

    The whole experience from start to finish was something we will remember forever. We had had a very emotional weekend at the Royal Albert Hall for the festival of remembrance and a service on HMS Belfast, and the cruise just finished the weekend perfectly for us. We hope to book again next year.

    ★★

    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!

    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.

    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
