The dinner was amazing. The entertainment was fantastic. The crew is very nice. The only critic that I have to say is that 4 hours cruise is a little bit too long, but other than that, everything was wonderful. Highly recommended.
Before booking I had read reviews and had heard from friends, who had been on other similar cruises that it could go either way. Well, this was terrific. The dinning area reminded me of being at a wedding reception ,a very elegant setup . The food was delicious, the service excellent. The live entertainment, a vocalist and two accompanists, drum and guitar were a nice addition. If you chose, you could even get on the dance floor. After a week of off and on rain, the night was clear and cool. The evening views of the lit coastline were beautiful. I highly recommend adding this to your stay. We will definitely do this again. Thumbs up for Viator!
very good trip the city took on a whole new outlook at night great meal,good service ,but need to get there early as could miss out on a seat by the window and end up towards the centre of the dining room
The views of the river were lovely. The food was superb. The staff was courteous. The music was nice to listen to, but for this older crowd, I think some slow dance tunes might have enticed people onto the dance floor.
The meal, cruise and entertainment and total experience was great. We had a wonderful time.
Highly recommend for those looking for romance! We were charmed by magnificent views, smooth music and good food. 4 hours flew away like 1 minute, but it was totally worth it!
Great trip and all on time. The food was good but the choices could have been better. We would definitely do it again.
We did the dinner tour. We got to see the falls in daylight and the castle during daylight and when it was dark outside. The city lights and litle camp fires gave you a good feeling. Dinner was very good.
Very nice cruise. Would recommend. Well organized with a super friendly staff. They made sure to get cabs to the dock at the end of the cruise. Food was excellent. If they could cut the tour about 45 minutes it would have been just fine.
Had a great time. Weather was not good but you could stay inside.
The service and food were great. Did not enjoy the long line up to board. A bit slow in docking. We were looking forward to dancing after dinner but was not what we expected. Awful music and the only dancing was done by children which were not looking in whose path they got.
The fireworks were good but a bit long, we were really ready to get off by midnight.
Good rating is for the food and service and friendly staff not the whole cruise experience.
We truly enjoyed our dinner cruise. The meal was excellent, as was the view of Quebec city at night. We were very lucky that we were able to board the boat at Levis where we were staying for a couple of nights. We were the only two that were met in Levis, given our tickets there by a representative, and were given the opportunity to take the cruise from there. We appreciated that option very much.
My husband and I enjoyed the evening cruise. We were seated by ourselves in a corner by the window. We were not sure if this was because we spoke English as everyone else was seated together in the other areas. In any event, it was like having a private dining area which we did not mind. The view from the river was beautiful. The meal was good although my husband is a finicky eater and the first two courses went untouched. It would have been good to have a second choice as not everyone likes fish and duck. For the price of the meal, there should have been two choices. If we went again, we would probably opt to eat before boarding and just enjoy the cruise.
Had the 5 course meal - food was great, service good, dinner entertainment was nice. Was able to view the waterfall. Scenery was great of course.
After dinner explored the rest of the ship, couple of areas where dance music was being played, we danced a bit would have been more fun if there were more people on the boat or we came with more friends. Can be made into a party event, or a romantic date.
The dinner cruise was really enjoyable but the food took way too long to come out.,.... like 3 hrs total. The smaller portions was enough but who wants to sit that long waiting for food.
Very good cruise. Buffet Dinner was good. However, we had made reservations for the 5 course dinner a month in advance and the day before I confirmed our reservations as required and were told the cruise was sold out and in fact AML had advised Viatour that our reservation was not available. Viatour never advised us of this. We were glad that AML was able to get us on board, but we could only get the buffet dinner, not the 5 course sit down dinner we had reserved. A better system of follow up should be implemented by Viatour.
The cruise itself was very nice. We got to see things from a completely different perspective being out on the water. Also were able to see things that might not be visible on land. Would do the cruise again. The dinner was another story, would not recommend it or do it again. The appetizer was a soggy cone of pureed smoked salmon, the Asian style duck confit salad was a bits of duck and noodles overwhelmed by arugula, The entrée was cold chicken breast, on top of a piled of over peppered mashed potatoes. Dessert was also mediocre. We did the train de Massif a few days earlier and it was fantastic so this was a big disappointment.
Needs a little more pizazz. Not something I would do again. I would have preferred a river ride during the day when you could see the city from
The view of the river.
We arrived 30 minutes before the cruise, as recommended. When we arrived, the main dining room was completely full. I assume that large bus tours had been booked. We were seated at the back, beside a window that had some safety equipment blocking the view. The meal was satisfactory. The band was excellent.
This tour was very enjoyable! For the price we paid we feel that both atmosphere in dining area and also the food could have been more elegant or special. All in all we enjoyed this dinner cruise. Would we be likely to do it again, probably not! Many other wonderful things to do in this beautiful city.
