Reviews
Thames Dinner Cruise For Two Very dissapointing!..... arrived 15 minutes late for pick up, should have been 7.30 boarding. No choice of menu, a set meal which included shell fish (my wife has an allergy). We docked for almost an hour of the cruise time, and then stopped to pick up 3 other women on the journey. Our trip was meant to be 7.30pm - 11pm. We boarded at 7.45 (late) and docked at 10.30pm (half an hour early, we had just bought another glass of wine). they started to dis-embark the passengers and then turned all the lights on and we were made to feel that we had to drink the wine or leave it. When we asked why we had docked early...the response was it can sometimes take us half an hour to off load passengers especiall when there are big groups. There were NO big groups on board, what was meant to be a special romantic meal and Thames cruise was not much better than what we would expect from a very average pub meal and 45mins taken off our cruising time. Our mark is low mainly for the blatant shortening of our evening. Very dissapointed.

Reply: Thank you for your valued feedback. We're very sorry on this occasion the experience did not meet your expectations. We will be sure to pass on this information to the operator. Gary Jarvis
