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.

Went on this dinner cruise at the end of June, boat cruised up and down the river a few times and was scenic if you were fortunate enough to be seated on the chairs facing out to the river rather than the ones we were placed on which looked inwards to the buffet. Lots of entertainment music dancing etc throughout... More

Great evening, everything firstclass from when you step on board, staff are there to make sure you have a great experience and you sure do. Not into singing and dancing shows but would recommend this show.

This river cruise reflects the most beautiful side of Saigon. It's every bit enjoyable from live Ao dance performances to dining in romantic luxury. It's a feast from Indo appetizers to fried fillet de bar fish, grilled pork + banh hoi, cooked chicken w/ mushroom and beef saute veggies. This should be the highlight of your Saigon tour.

The boat was large and catered for our group of 50+ very well and something all groups should definitely do especially at this time of the year when it's so hot the breeze was delightful - superb range of cuisine, great performance by the singers/dancers/magician and not too long

We enjoyed an (open air)evening cruise with excellent food excellent service including our waiter carrying food back to the table for me and explaining the different dishes to me. It was a very pleasant evening with lovely views of the city lights. The price paid was USD$40 pp = possible bit pricey however this did include welcome cocktail and canapes... More

Cruise was relaxing and romantic with Saigon city lights. Performance was great with live band, vocalist and dancers. Dinner overall is average. Price abit too steep for the variety/quality of food served. Service was excellent from booking staff to service crew. Would recommend for first timer to HCMC.

Except for soup, food was served family style. We were 3 couples in our group, each from different hotel. One would just have to partake little to give way to others. No narration on what we were seeing in terms of Saigon city lights. River was ok. No smell. Servers spoke passable English. There was Vietnamese song and dance for... More

We booked this last minute but ended up with what thought was a great night out. Initially thoughts of a pricey evening were dispelled when we wee treated to VIP treatment from our hotel Eden Saigon. Taxi and private guide took us to the boat, escorted us on and off the boat and back into a taxi. Once on board... More
