Overall pretty good

It was a clear evening and we saw plenty of the most fabulous sites in London. Unfortunately Big Ben is currently wrapped up for renovations but everything else looked good. The boat was comfortable and we had good seating next to the very large windows. The staff were courteous, polite and attentive. We chose the middle charge including Prosecco and half a glass of wine each. The food was ok, not brilliant but we didn’t go for the food but for the atmosphere and views which were very good. Cheese was shared between two for some strange reason and we didn’t get our coffee. The pianist and sax played all evening but it was jazz which isn’t to my taste. The waiting area pre boarding was very comfortable.

Dinnet cruise on the thames

The dinner cruise which was anything but luxury. To start with the starter was cold pea soup and this was very disappointing as this was not choux cheese pastry, then the tarte was nice but tiny, after this came beetroot gnocchi in a watery soup and this seemed very strange as it was not thickened. Then a saving grace a choco.te anniversary cake thank you. This was followed by a delicious white chocolate mousse and strawberry compote and then cheese and grapes. So food was a thing but luxury and the dinner cruise was relaxing with music which seemed to be on constant repeat strange how the trumpet and pia o played the same music over and over agai . Then no idea of where the din er cruise was passing g by in London some sights of interest would have been nice. So all in all not the best din er cruise and not the worst I think we will stick to the afternoon tea in future at least you are getting what it says on the tin.

The boat is nice but you have to choose the summer months to see the main buildings on the coast, which are only very poorly lit in this winter season (mid December 2o19). The Thames estuary is wide, unlike the Seine which allows lighting by on-board projectors
