First time on this boat for my wife and I. We booked an evening jazz cruise as a birthday treat. It was a really wonderful experience. The only downside was that the wheelchair access which was advertised was almost impossible at the Newnham Steps mooring. However the very helpful volunteer staff cheerfully manhandled the chair from the quay onto the boat which has a convenient lift. At the end of the cruise we accepted an offer of an alternative disembarkation at Sovereign Quay. This was much easier and was only a few hundred yards from where we had parked. Anyone in a similar position to us is advised to contact the company to arrange an alternative pickup. Everything else was wonderful, a lovely jazz band at just the right volume, friendly attentive crew, fast table service of drinks and snacks, good prices. A fun evening. We will certainly be back for one of the daylight trips.

We were on the Motown and soul cruise, what a fantastic way to spend an evening cruising the embankment with the excellent on board DJ getting all involved even the “river bank people” to give us a wave, a massive thank you to the volunteers that run the boat, if you are thinking of booking this cruise then you will not be disappointed

A pleasant trip along the river with a very average "cream tea" consisting of only one scone//jam/cream on paper plates including the cup of tea, all pre-packed and covered in cling film. Rather over-priced. All other drinks extra. Crew on board who were nice and friendly.
