Full description

Take a leisurely evening cruise through the heart of London to see its famous sights illuminated at night. In the summer, there is the added delight of watching the sun set from the water before the lights come alive! The 3-hour cruise from Westminster to the Thames Barrier and back starts with a welcome drink when you board. Follow your cocktail with a delicious 4-course dinner, plus entertainment from a live singer. This dinner cruise from the heart of London combines a great meal with cabaret and dancing. Sail past the modern landmarks of the O2 Arena, Canary Wharf, and City Hall, and continue as far as the monumental Thames Barrier flood defense before turning back to the Houses of Parliament. By the time darkness falls, dinner gives way to a cabaret singer performing tunes from West End Shows both past and present, along with other popular music. Although dancing is encouraged during and after the cabaret performance, if you prefer you can sit back and simply enjoy the music and floodlit sights. The cruise ends at the original starting point.

    We did the evening cruise. Overall was excellent value for money. The singer was brilliant & the staff were amazing ❤️. Previous reviews mention the food not being great. This is true, however it was ok! The drinks were reasonably priced. Overall would definitely recommend this.

    This was such a fun activity. There was a slight confusion since we had requested vegetarian when we booked the dinner and they couldn’t see it on their system. It worked out well and they served us the correct food we had requested. Overall, a very fun activity for all (adult) ages. We ate, we sang, we danced the whole 3 hours.

    Entertainer is fun loving, sings really well. All the staff on board are polite and helpful. Cruise is clean and neat. Sitting is abit close but still bearable. I feel 3hrs is abit too long tho. And totally no introduction or abit of history of any of sight we see. Maybe should provide sight introduction earpiece set to those who want. Very bad signage to where passengers should board the cruise. All passengers are walking all over the place, fr one end to the other, guessing where to board. Main course, chicken breast is tough and dry.
