We chose this trip on the recommendation from friends and it was as good as they described. If you want a large ‘party’ boat then this isn’t the one to choose. If you want a relaxing 2 hours with excellent food and service in a relaxed atmosphere then this fits the bill. With

As described, this was a lot more relaxed and quieter than other cruised. The food was excellent. However if you are planning getting some great photos of Wats by night getting photos from a moving boat by night isn't easy.

Food lovers beware, this is a "high quality, lots of food experience" Couldn't ask for more. The view from the boat make you feel you are in a magical dream. The staff take care of you all the time. Watch our with the drinks, as they are not included and can be really pricey.

This was an enjoyable cruise. The food was great. However, I did get tired of seeing the same route for the last 20-30 minutes of the cruise. Also, the drinks are pricey. This is not a cruise with loud music. Expect to see a somewhat mature crowd, i.e., 35-50 years old with
