1. Scenery: well, it is dark at night, so all you can see are the confusing Saigon lights, but why not; Anyway, the boat is slowly cruising and loops on the river. Nothing really exceptional. 2. Food: OK, just OK.... 3. Staff: nice and helpful, except a kind of female manager which was not pleasant with their guests. Maybe she... More

Welcome drinks were served once we were seated. The buffet spread was superb! (I had four helpings of almost all the dishes that was on the buffet table hehe) There... More

Well.......certainly not the best trip I have been on! Unfortunately we were on a boat where 90% of the guests were celebrating something and appeared to be one large company. The result was they simply took over the evening. We, along with 6 other tables were relegated to the back of the boat in the bar area, meaning that we... More

Liked the entertainment. Didn't like the 'free' drink when seated. Tasted awful. Liked the variety of offerings on the buffet tables. Didn't like no photography allowed.
