Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

The views were immense,the crew on the boat were very helpful and friendly,the food was good and the night was lovely,due to the actual company who run this boat which is not (viator) I payed the top money with the highest package available through viator (platinum package) I think. But when we arrived on what I thought was going to be a very romantic special night for my mrs’s birthday,they had no idea that we were coming! Viator hadn’t even notified them of our names or Type of package That I had payed for with the best window seats and views available. They hadn’t even notified them of our names. They had no idea we were coming wotsoever. I had to stand on The pier next to my girlfriend while they figured out what was going on,all on her birthday surprize.

Still holding on this amazing experience with great staff!
, Dec 2020
The staff goes the extra mile for us! Friendly, attentive, lovely, warmth and sincerity. My partner and I as well as my close friends felt like King and Queens!! Amazing nice, live entertainment was uplifting and brilliant. Cruising around the great London sights was breath taking especially at night. Still on high!
Evening cruise on the Thames River with dinner and music!
, Nov 2019
We enjoyed our dinner on the Thames River! The food was very good! We got a welcome drink (Prosecco) and bottle of wine to share for each couple! There was a two piece entertainment, which was nice! The best is the scenery while cruising! This time of year it was dark, but I think cruising at dusk in an earlier month would be awesome! The boat had full length windows so you could see everything! Beautiful going under some of the bridges. We even saw some fireworks!! Loved it!
Not what I expected
, Nov 2019
My family and I took this cruise for my fathers bday. The staff was GREAT, but it was the food that I was not impressed with. We were not given a choice of what we wanted to eat (guests at the table next to us had steak, we had chicken) plus there was not a menu provided prior to booking this cruise.
Nice eavening on the water

The staff on this cruise was fantastic. They had us seated quickly and were very friendly and curteous. The food was good and prepared well. We were seated next to the musicians and my only negative comment was due to volume. The Saxaphone was deafening.
Great trip

My wife and I did the Al a carte wine pairing option dinner cruise our last night in London. It was a great way to end our trip. The food was very good, wine paired well. We were seated close to the piano, but were still able to hold a conversation. London at night was the star, and some of my wife's favorite pictures from our trip were from the cruise. Highly recommended, and we will be doing another dinner cruise on our next London trip
A very enjoyable evening
, Oct 2019
The food and service were excellent. The signature al a carte experience was well worth the expense. It was a wonderful night out. The music, sax and piano was also excellent. Probably only fault was a little loud.
Avoid at all costs

Our 'Elegant' and 'sophisticated 'dinner cruise' turned out to be in the middle of a corporate pissup. I could see the musicians - they were only ten feet away. Couldn't hear a note for all the yelling and carry on. You can't be an elegant dinner cruise AND a party boat.

Excellent Dinner cruise , Excellent value for money, food was so delicious, 5 star , Boat was beautiful, great big clear glass windows so you got a excellent view of London, worth every penny, wonderful helpful , caring staff, nothing was to much trouble, was amazing, pianist and saxophone player were fantastic, river cruise tour was a surprise for my daughter's 21st birthday , the memory of it will last us a life time. Would definitely recommend it 10 out of 10.

The acoustic on the boat were awful and therefore detracted from the experience. I could hardly talk in a normal voice to my dinner partner. The food was fine. The cruise itself was fine and we did get to see all the sites at night,
