What You Can Expect

Prague Luxury Dinner Cruise on Vltava River

Enjoy an intimate 3-course dinner whilst admiring nightime views of Prague

Start your cruise on the Vltava River in central Prague in the early evening. Step aboard the stylish vessel and soak up the exclusive ambiance over a complimentary aperitif.

With space limited to just 48 guests, the boat is smaller than many of the cruise vessels that ply the Vltava, creating a sophisticated and intimate atmosphere on board.

As your boat pulls away from the jetty, make your way to the open or partially covered decks to drink in the passing sights. 

Admire the stellar views of landmarks such as UNESCO-listed Prague Castle, the National Museum and Rudolfinum concert hall, and spot lesser-known treasures including the needle-shaped spires of the Emmaus Monastery. 

Have your camera to hand as you cruise under the statue-laden Charles Bridge. As you pass through its arches, watch for the famous ‘bearded man’ carving — a sculpted head that provided medieval Praguers with a measure of river levels to help them predict floods.

When the time comes for dinner, take a seat in the comfortable main salon. Alternatively, if you’ve upgraded, dine in the bow area. This exclusive area is reserved for just 16 guests and offers a wonderful, panoramic outlook over the river.
Wherever you’re seated, feast on a 3-course meal prepared by the onboard chefs. Savor Czech specialities such as Prague ham, confit duck or poached halibut, and pair your dishes with an included half-bottle of wine, beer or mineral water. Read on for a sample menu.

As you eat, enjoy the lilt of live piano music and the civilized, relaxed mood. Then, finish with a coffee or tea, and buy further drinks (own expense) if you wish.

After your meal, perhaps return to deck to appreciate the last, magical views of the city’s towers, steeples and turrets glittering against the night sky. 

Your 3-hour cruise then ends back at the start point.

First course (choice of one):
  • Prague ham with cranberry dip
  • Goose foie gras served in red wine with apple
  • Smoked trout with mixed vegetable salad
Second course (choice of one):
  • Duck comfit with Carlsbad dumplings and red cabbage

Lovely evening. The boat was very luxurious, we were greeted by the lovely staff with a glass of champagne and the service was excellent throughout. Food and wine were very good and it was great to sit up on the deck and see Prague lit up at night. Would highly recommend.

Good food, good atmosphere and great views. Your view from the dining room is good, but you can go out on the top deck and see a 360degree view of Prague at night. I would do this again.

We enjoyed a magical evening on the Vltava River cruise. The boat only seat about 20 tables so it was very intimate. The duck was amazing and service was warm, attentive and friendly. The views were just breathtaking from the river itself! Wonderful to spend an evening in Prague.

Comfortable seating, excellent food, beverages and entertainment, which was not expected. Tour showed Prague by night and was enjoyable.

We had a table for six. The food, service and venue were superb. I would definitely recommend this dinner cruise.

This was an exceptional experience and I would thoroughly recommend it. The staff on board made our experience wonderful and also surprised my dad with a birthday desert and a sparkling candle which was extremely kind and thoughtful. The food was delicious and the staff were more than happy to provide additional bread and drinks if requested. The pianist was playing and singing in the background very gently which made the experience calming and enjoying. The boat was in great condition and was very clean. The open deck was spacious and all guests could sit in their respective groups and enjoy the views whilst also having some privacy. The boat docked about 5 times or so for 20-30 minute intervals whilst the food was served and started although, my only negative point was that I wish it had not docked so much.

Excellent food and views. We had paid extra to sit in the bow. We had expected to sit outside, but dinner was inside and then you could go up to the deck.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Everything from the gourmet meal to the wonderful cruise along the Vldava River was magical. Seeing the sights illuminated at night was a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend this tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The perfect romantic evening to end to our vacation. The food and drink were very good and the service attentive yet unobtrusive. The live music created just the right atmosphere. We paid the extra to sit in the bow, and it was well worth it - the final view over Prague from our table was spectacular.

As other reviewers have noted, don't trust the pier on the ticket - go to the Prague Boats office on the waterfront, and they will steer you straight. Also, if you want a vegetarian entree, let the Prague Boats office know in advance though, to their great credit, the staff on our boat came up with one for us even though we didn't realize we should have preordered.
