“Good Night”

We did this dinner cruise, food was great, buffet style and plenty of it. Entertainment with the dances and band were fantastic. Staff were great, free massage on neck and shoulders on boat. Take a jacket it was cool

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Top quality food and a wide range to satisfy all taste buds. The entertainment was also great. The river isn't really that pretty but the food and entertainment make it a great night out. We had a fantastic time.

“Not Worth It”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We decided to try this as we had company visiting us from overseas, and thought it would be an enjoyable Saigonese night... what a disappointment! The food was average at best... it was buffet but it was pretty horrible! We all agreed on that. For the price ($40USD pp, you can get MUCH better food in Saigon). The entertainment was no better than karaoke. We were hoping for some traditional Vietnamese stuff, but it was two very average singers singing soft rock hits... after about 30 minutes we wanted off. The only good thing was the boat itself. It was a beautiful ship. I wouldn't recommend this at all though, spend your money elsewhere.

“Lovely way to spend and evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Welcomed by crew in traditional dress and a welcome drink.
Buffet was huge and had lots of veggie, fish and meat options.
The dancing was good-
Could have done without Abba at the end, but that's just my opinion.
Provided great views of the city skyline on the return to port.

Very nice when we enjoy dinner on the cruise and see the river. Not high food quality as well as services.
