Excellent for Christmas Day in London. The entertainment, service and atmosphere were wonderful. You will be entertained by live music and incredible scenery.

This cruise was perfect in every way! The food was great, the decorations were very nice, the wait staff were so helpful, tho there was a bit of a language barrier but it was still ok. The entertainment was a nice touch and she wasn’t intrusive during the meal. I highly recommend this if you’re in London for Christmas Day!

From the moment you step aboard - not knowing quite what to expect - you are extremely well looked after, treated with friendliness and efficiency by all the staff and royally entertained. The overall atmosphere is welcoming and inclusive and the greatest bonus of all is that you get to meet some great fellow guests. The seating is conducive to making contact with your neighbours although it would be possible, if one was so inclined, to be private. Although not a cheap experience (£125 each) it really was excellent value for money. Well done City Cruises.

After being warned that everything is closed in London on Christmas except for hotels and checking around it turns out that there were very limited options available for Christmas day and most of those were very expensive pre set menus around 200 pounds and above per person including the kids! So to find this activity which was a 3 1/2 hour cruise up the Thames River and was all inclusive with the meal and the cruise it was by far the best value we found. It included a glass of champagne and a Christmas Cracker which is the traditional English surprise rolled up with the crown and prize inside. The day was gorgeous and we got great photos up on the deck.

The seating was "theatre style" seats so there was little arm room - but the food was pretty good and the service was fine. Unfortunately our return journey was rather rushed since one of the guests had rather too much to drink and...……!!!
