What To Expect

Select your desired cruise departure and dinner option when you book. Then, on the day, travel independently to the starting pier on the Thames River in Central London.

Step aboard River Room, an elegant Scandinavian cruiser furnished with a dining saloon and expansive outer deck, or the recently refurbished vessel Glass Room, which offers passengers some of the best panoramic views over London.

Take a seat at your table as you sail east along the scenic Thames. Absorb the illuminated sights as darkness falls; relax over your delectable dinner, served by the courteous waiting staff; and lose yourself in the sparkling live entertainment. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

If you’ve upgraded to the Premier Dinner option, sip on your included half-bottle of wine and mineral water.

During your meal, glide by top London landmarks including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the Tate Modern, and the London Eye—all bathed in the radiant glow of sunset or brilliant floodlights. Gaze out over Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, and the spectacularly lit Tower Bridge.

End your experience back at the starting pier.

Thames Dinner Cruise
Michael_M, June 2023
Great food, service, and scenery! Would highly recommend. Entertainment on board was excellent! Boarding was easy.
Terrible all around
Margaret_L, Apr 2023
Finishing the trip was not soon enough. Your advertising was inappropriate…seemed like a “couples” cruise (I was with my sister). The food choices were minimal and not accommodating. The climate was cold…had to keep a coat on. The entertainment was annoying. It was tough to get through to the end.
Worth IT!
Dale_S, Apr 2023
Our waitress Jasmine from Athens was great! Food was good and plenty of drinks. Nighttime views of London were awesome!
Lovely evening
Cherri_W, Mar 2023
Lovely views, nice boat, good singers and food was good. Lovely waitress as well. Vegetarian option could have been slightly better is the only downfall
Disappointing evening
David_C, Nov 2022
My wife and I have taken River cruises before. The point of these cruises is to see the “sights” lit up! You don’t go for the food or entertainment. The food was “meh” as expected, the boat, which was nice enough, never passed by the “Eye” or the Palace of Westminster or Big Ben. Instead they took us 5 miles downriver pass the docks (after starting an hour late). Hard pass for anyone who likes River cruises.
It was ok average...
Guglielmo_L, Nov 2022
It was ok average experience I’m sure you could improve the overall experience , stood in the pouring rain in a long queue that wasn’t being moved took half hour to get inside the boat

Gerald_G, July 2022
Nice evening but pricy for the quality of food served. Staff very nice. The wine flowed freely maybe to over shadow food,

Awful experience
Parm_B, July 2022
First we were kept waiting over an hour. would not let us on boat till 6:30 where as we were told departure was 6:30. Then we were served soup that had glass in it. the manager said she would fill in the accident book???? Wos told there would be a refund and a member of the safety team would ring on Monday. never happened. no refund. terrible restaurant.
Danielle_H, July 2022

Jacqueline_C, July 2022
So relaxing and a fantastic way to see london food lovely . Would 100% recommend. Service fab will definitely come back
Worst food on our recent trip to London
Leigh_D, July 2022
My son and I went on this dinner cruise and were terribly disappointed by the food. Paid over $400 for the platinum dinner cruise and while the sights were lovely and the wait-staff was gracious the food was atrocious, especially the main courses. I couldn't eat mine (trout) and my son's (lamb) wasn't any better. The main courses were flavorless and dry with no apparent sauces or seasoning. For this price-point I expected an exceptional meal... they didn't even come close.
A Wonderful Evening
Kathey, June 2022
We had a wonderful time. The food was good and the scenery was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Amazing river cruise
Patricia_H, June 2022
Amazing cruise down the Thames River. The service was great and we all loved the food. The evening cruise was on my bucket list and it was worth the wait.
Chris_M, June 2022
