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

Booked this dinner cruise prior to leaving home, excellent, from time of booking to confirmation emails, to tickets arriving at the hotel on the day of cruise. Great entertainment, lovely food (buffet style) which was continuously refilled, the staff on board were very friendly and attentive. Great way to finish a holiday to Vietnam.

The things I love about night cruises are the scenic views you get from the bright lights of the city. This cruise does not focus on that but rather on its live entertainment of singing, dancing, playing local instruments, and performing magic tricks table by table. The food is okay with a good spread of vegetarian dishes for those who... More

This dinner cruise was part of our tour and was not expecting a lot having experienced these type of events before where they are usually only average. Well we were in for a very pleasant surprise!!! The boat was very nice and upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly and attentive staff. After a nice "welcome drink" we were... More

Nice memorable cruise with 'exclusive' vegetarian widespread dinner on top floor with western live music and dance, smooth boat ride showcasing the night view of the city skyline, not too noisy river cruise, star hotel restaurant experience in dinner with cordial support staff on board to take care of special requirements.

Pros: service was really nice and pleased. Round 30min view on colourful Skyline. Cons: price to high. Barkeeper. Food and music. Don't know what we exactly paid for the tour because the cruise was part of our multi day trip. Regarding the prices for the drinks (not included) and like it was in total - too much. Reasons: First we had... More

Had expected ques and empty plates for favourites around the buffet, but the crew kept all plates full at all time. Very good! Waiters always standing by to... More
