    ★★★

    The cruise itself was lovely and we had a window seat which I would recommend. The food was average,the starter was on our table when we arrived which I thought how long has it been there! The band were good

    ★★★★★

    We loved the night from beginning to end!! the atmosphere was warm and friendly.All the staff were efficient and professional,the food was delicious and as for the entertainment we couldn't have had better.A truly enjoyable night which we would highly recommend.Thankyou !!!


    15 Nov 2018

    ★★

    My husband and I were sat at the front in the middle nearest the performers, you would think an ideal place. But no. We were sat opposite each other and the way the tables were positioned only allowed for one person to actually see the band with the other having their back to them all the time. This also resulted in the fact that during the whole evening all the other guests facing the band were looking straight towards my direction which spoilt the experience for me. I feel more thought should have been given to where the band was positioned to allow all the guests viewing access. There was also a very long time between the first and second courses while the boat was loaded further down river. I wouldn't recommend this experience.


    15 Nov 2018

    Great, cruise, great staff and great singers. I would like a bit more of jazz music.

    13 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    It was good but the interior was definitely lacking, music was okay and food was okay definitely ask for a seat by a window at the back


  • 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.


    09 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    My wife and myself had a very enjoyable evening. Food was good and drink reasonably priced


    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    My bestie and l visited on 21st September 2018. This was our first jazz night event with City Cruise. However we done afew dinner cruises previously. We were greeted professionally and friendly on board with a welcome drink. The music was good with a singer and a good sax player. The 3 course meal were good. The cruise up the Thames was good. Great sights and photo opportunities too. Parking near Westminster Pier is available but average cost is £30-50 for the evening. The cruise last 2.5-3 hours. Would recommend using City Cruise to couples and groups for definite however not really for kids for the evening cruises.


    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    I loved the cruise the food the music I just thought the atmosphere was a bit boring. You had to make the experience what it was t wasn’t a naturally bubbling environment. Introverts wouldn’t have really gotten the best night out from it


    02 Oct 2018

    Very mediocre foid. Basically chiken with mashed potato. And we oaid £140 for that ??! The boat tables are mistly 4 seaters so it makes it awkward fir coupkes esoecially if ita a soecial iccasion. It feels like the converted tourist biat that it is. Ie. Cheap not special. The only redeeming feature was the execellent jazz band.

    Great evening on the Thames. Lovely views from the boat, friendly staff, food average, but jazz band was really excellent, with a lovely singer!


    18 Sep 2018

    ★★★★

    We really enjoyed the cruise - the food was nice (and hot), and the jazz band was good. My only negative is that the music was too loud so we couldn't really talk throughout, we had to virtually shout across to each other. I was quite pleased when the band took a break so that we could actually have a conversation!


    17 Sep 2018

    Service average food ok drinks missing


    17 Sep 2018

    ★★★

    I can only give this evening cruise 3 stars because we really didn't e njoy the food. The cold starter was quite nice, but the chicken in tomato sauce was tasteless and the cheesecake was less than memorable. We didn't realise that we would be sharing a table. As it turned out, we got on very well with our dinner companions, but this was just our good luck. The 4 piece jazz combo were very good, but the singer was amateurish. But the star of the night was the river. It looked beautiful.

    This was a great cruise. The only drawback was the table setting. You had to share a table of four with strangers if there were only two of you


  • 10 Sep 2018

    ★★★

    Requested window seat for wife's special night seating crew not very helpful .main meal chicken dry .carpet we were put had seen better days my need replacing before it becomes a trip hazard.


    10 Sep 2018

    ★★

    The experience was lovely. However the food was very bland and the waitress we had was very uninterested in serving or speaking to us. Would not do again


    10 Sep 2018

    ★★

    Felt like we were in a factory line, too many tables on board so no privacy from the table next to us. The lights were too bright inside so we couldn't see the view outside unless we went on the top deck where we spent most of our time even thought it was cold! It would have been a real shame to miss the lights of London as that's what we'd come for. The chairs weren't very comfortable and as they were fixed to the floor we couldn't pull them in under the table so felt far from the table or had to bend forward all night. Food was fine and staff friendly. The cruise ship was great just too many people booked on so felt like a conveyer belt.


    10 Sep 2018

    ★★★

    Chicken main was terrible and dry, staff were friendly, booking was easy and entertainment was fantastic, but unfortunately the food was just too much of a let down for me to recommend to someone else


    09 Sep 2018

    Well organised . Made a large dining area see m intimate .. Slick service given the numbers. We thoroughly enjoye the jazz and the whole cruise. Will book again.

    we were welcomed on board with a glass of bubbly - taken to our table, and served amazing food! The Jazz quintet were really professional and played songs that I imagine people of all ages would know or remember!


  • 03 Sep 2018

    Really enjoyed the whole experience from boarding the cruise, enjoying good food and music, to seeing the sights and lights of the Thames. Would certainly recommend it and would enjoy doing it again.

    Nice atmosphere and sightseeing. Don’t expect too much of the food.


    31 Aug 2018

    ★★★★

    I had a lovely evening but feel we should of had an option of two menus or a choice before hand. Was well worth the money, throughly enjoyed it.


    28 Aug 2018

    ★★★

    Unfortunately it was raining on the night which caused us to have to sit inside for the duration of the evening an listen to the music which I'm sure most people enjoyed. I thought it was really loud and couldn't hear any conversation. The meal was pretty average an was like a supermarkets dinner deal. I'm sure if it hadn't of rained it would of been a lot better as you could of seen the sites along the Thames. I would surely have enjoyed it ten times better if the weather was good. Shame

    The evening was super entertainment. The jazz band played light popular jazz. The food onboard was good when you consider mass catering on a small boat. The evening weather was kind which enabled us on top deck. sadly the music was not piped onto the deck and could not be heard.


    30 Jul 2018

    ★★★★

    Staff were excellent and very courteous at all times. Boarded on time and was given a great window seat. Food was very good considering it was a mass menu. Band were great and not too loud so conversation as still possible. Upper outside deck was fabulous for the views of night time London.

    12 Jul 2018

    ★★★★★

    We really enjoyed our cruise on the Thames, it was a beautiful sunny warm evening. We had fantastic views of the riverside landmarks. We thought the dinner was very good and the staff polite and helpful. The Jazz quintet and singer were excellent and played music that would appeal to most people, not to in depth Jazz. We even had a firework display that I think was organised for the passengers on a cruise liner that was moored near Greenwich. My only complaint would be that I couldn't get to speak to anyone at city cruises during the daytime. I had an enquiry about the dress code. As it was 30 degrees I wanted confirmation that I could wear shorts. After 3 calls and being on hold for 30 minutes plus I gave up. I wore my shorts anyway and so did others. No problem.. A great evening complemented by the super weather.

The chairs weren't very comfortable and as they were fixed to the floor we couldn't pull them in under the table so felt far from the table or had to bend forward all night. Food was fine and staff friendly. The cruise ship was great just too many people booked on so felt like a conveyer belt.

    Chicken main was terrible and dry, staff were friendly, booking was easy and entertainment was fantastic, but unfortunately the food was just too much of a let down for me to recommend to someone else

    we were welcomed on board with a glass of bubbly - taken to our table, and served amazing food! The Jazz quintet were really professional and played songs that I imagine people of all ages would know or remember!

    I had a lovely evening but feel we should of had an option of two menus or a choice before hand. Was well worth the money, throughly enjoyed it.


  • 28 Aug 2018

    ★★★

    Unfortunately it was raining on the night which caused us to have to sit inside for the duration of the evening an listen to the music which I'm sure most people enjoyed. I thought it was really loud and couldn't hear any conversation. The meal was pretty average an was like a supermarkets dinner deal. I'm sure if it hadn't of rained it would of been a lot better as you could of seen the sites along the Thames. I would surely have enjoyed it ten times better if the weather was good. Shame

    The evening was super entertainment. The jazz band played light popular jazz. The food onboard was good when you consider mass catering on a small boat. The evening weather was kind which enabled us on top deck. sadly the music was not piped onto the deck and could not be heard.


  • 30 Jul 2018

    ★★★★

    Staff were excellent and very courteous at all times. Boarded on time and was given a great window seat. Food was very good considering it was a mass menu. Band were great and not too loud so conversation as still possible. Upper outside deck was fabulous for the views of night time London.

    We really enjoyed our cruise on the Thames, it was a beautiful sunny warm evening. We had fantastic views of the riverside landmarks. We thought the dinner was very good and the staff polite and helpful. The Jazz quintet and singer were excellent and played music that would appeal to most people, not to in depth Jazz. We even had a firework display that I think was organised for the passengers on a cruise liner that was moored near Greenwich. My only complaint would be that I couldn't get to speak to anyone at city cruises during the daytime. I had an enquiry about the dress code. As it was 30 degrees I wanted confirmation that I could wear shorts. After 3 calls and being on hold for 30 minutes plus I gave up. I wore my shorts anyway and so did others. No problem.. A great evening complemented by the super weather.
