“THE SPIDERBOAT”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

the jazzboat..lol.what a waste of money and rip off,the jazzband performed only live music for aprox 1h,for the remaining 1,5 hours just music from a cd.the food was just as horrible as the boats cleanlyness..the starter was sort of a patè,served with an old breadroll,the maincourse was 2 slices of complete dried out chicken breast topped with some unidentifiable sauce,beyond all expectations of the worldwide famous bohemian cuisine.
the actual highlight turned out after sunset,the place was all over filled with millions of spiders and webs ,just next to the tables and also crawling down the ceiling.it was just horrible and disgusting and we couldn't wait to leave that boat.
been well traveled all over the world,i have never come accross a more filthy place than this,not even in third world countries.

“Highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Check your attitude at the door and get involved, and this is an absolute winner of a night. We went to a Dixieland show and loved every minute. The band were talented and very engaging showmen, and the more enthusiasm you give, they give it back. It was a bit of an older crowd, but the few younger folk on board (us included) were up on the dance floor and laughing away. The wait staff were very friendly, wine was reasonably priced (go the nederburg Chardonnay!) and the food was simple but tasty. Loved it so much we bought the cd!

“Let's say ok ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We went dinner with my other half on the jazz boat.
The overall organization was not great, the person who, I believe, was the manager needs to learn how to smile.
We had a big surprise that we could had to actually eat with another couple..
very romantic indeed..
So be careful if you want to eat with alone you actually have to book 4 places and not 2.
The food was average, don't think you will have quality food.
the concert was good, nice live music.
The cruise was not worth it the boat kept turning around so we actually saw the same thing all night.
To finish I would not recommend it for the food and cruise, but mainly for the music.

“How fun to do something a little bit different.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

I learned that jazz was banned during the Communist era. The jazz musicians we heard in Prague seem to be making up for lost time, such was their energy and enthusiasm. My friend and I booked for the jazz boat on the trad-jazz evening and had a really fun time. We were a bit worried it would be a bit "romantic" but we didn't feel like the odd ones out at all, and there were all kinds on board. As it turned out, our trip coincided with a big thunder storm, which added to the magic of the evening, and we didn't mind at all that we were inside. I think had we been dining outside we would have missed the performance. The jazz was very good, the musicians really entertained and we were very impressed by the quality of the food. I would definitely recommend this trip.

“Slow service, average food, friendly wait staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We wanted to love this cruise because it was more intimate than the other, larger boats looked. I wish we would have done another boat.

The wait staff was friendly but very slow. They kept appologizing saying that they were busy but they know ahead of time how many guests are coming abroad so that's no excuse.

The top deck was cooler than the main deck but the main deck was much better for the Jazz itself. I suspect that the main deck received better service but the pricing was the same.

Book at your own risk.
