Beautiful experience Crossy, 03/06/2017 (Young Adults)My husband and I had such a lovely evening on board on Thursday. Great staff, lovely food, lovely music to support the atmosphere and some after dinner dancing. My husband is not easily pleased and even he would like to book another trip in order to go back on the boat again!
London dinner cruise Rudolph, 17/03/2017 (Mature Adults)We had a wonderful time, the ship was beautiful, the food was excellent and so was the entertainment. Was first class and I would definitely recommend this cruise as a definite one to do!
Pleasant cruise Foxy, 11/03/2017 (Senior Adults)The food was average and the champagne on the premium package was not at all good and did not taste right. The included wine together with the food was average. A comentry would have been nice or maybe the choice of using a hand held tape.
It Was All Going So Well... Just A Local Lad, 19/02/2017 (Young Adults)The experience was spectacular especially going past all the sights of London at night, the staff particularly Damian were very hospitable but unfortunately the whole experience was ruined when my girlfriend developed food poisoning from the food served. We suspect it was the chicken patte so steer week clear when choosing your starter.
Evening dinner Cruise Markos, 04/07/2016 (Mature Adults)Lovely evening cruise and meal.
What a fabulous evening Max, 16/05/2016 (Mature Adults)I booked the trip for a group of 6 friends and didn't know what to expect. I must say the whole experience from start to finish was amazing. The boat was spotless, the team were friendly, our Russian waiter was delightful. The table and crockery and attention to detail was equivalent to a top notch hotel. I thought the food would be a bit mediocre but it was far from it. Each course was delicious and presented beautifully. The entertainment was very good and the only thing that upstaged the cruise experience was the beautiful views of the City at night. Would highly recommend a visit.
Nice experienece antoprajkumar, 10/04/2016 (Mature Adults)It is a perfect way to spend a special evening with your spouse. I strongly recommend this for my friends. Food was good, and the experience is awesome.
Excellent Night! Jane and Gary, 20/10/2015 (Mature Adults)Wow! What a fantastic evening on the Symphony. From the very helpful reception staff to the waiter who made sure our glasses were never quite empty. The food was first class and dining with the beautiful music and singer in the background all made for a night to remember. 3 hours have never passed so quickly. Thank you to everyone on board!
Will definitely recommend to our family and friends.

First class evening Harriet, 25/08/2015 (Young Adults)This is certainly a stand out evening from our London stay. From the moment you step on board you are treated like royalty. Shown to your table, which is allocated when you go to the reception. No choice of your table however but we were happy with the table we had, one table in from the edge.you have panoramic views anyway. We were greeted by our waitress and shown the menus, which all sounded lovely! Drinks were reasonably priced. Everything was perfectly timed and the views of London skyline was amazing. It travels towards Chelsea embankment and just past tower bridge.It allows plenty of opportunity to capture photos as it turns round a few times. If it is a special occasion they will do something extra. The quality of entertainment was good with pianist, saxophonist and singer playing mixture of old and modern tunes. Tables candlelit when the sun went down.Would definitely book this again, good for couples and small groups of friends or family. Worth every penny, such a magical night.thank you to all the staff on board.
Fabulous cruise Aj, 03/08/2015 (Mature Adults)We went on this cruise for our anniversary while staying in London fantastic a very special night the only fault was that the dress code is smart but there were people on the cruise in jeans and trainers which it states when you book are not allowed but there were several guests not dressed appropriately but apart from that food was excellent staff very attentive and I would definitely be cruising again

Bateaux Symphony Queenie, 30/06/2015 ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FROM START TO END. Took my boyfriend for his birthday it was just perfect, the view, food & entertainment. Would 1000% be returning sometime in the year
A Must Stretch, 08/06/2015 (Mature Adults)Ordinarily I don't take the time to submit reviews, but the Bateaux experience is worth the effort.
I would say what ever the occasion the evening trip is something everyone can enjoy even if there is no occasion it is a fantastic experience.
Great value for money, excellent food, service, entertainment & drinks menu.
Having lived in London on & off for over 40 years, and having flown in a helicopter down the Thames, I had never seen the city from this perspective and it was well worth it.
I doubt it will be the only time I do this trip with Bateaux.
