Viator Traveler's Reviews

We went on the boat hoping to go on the upper level for better views. We were told very rudely to go downstairs with no explanation. The ladies working on the boat had absolutely no English and served the local guests before coming to us at the end and asking if we wanted a drink. When serving drinks they reached right across in front of my face without any apology pushing me out of the way. When I asked to speak to someone who spoke English they refused. After 15 minutes were were able to get off as the boat went through a lock and.were removed to do so. We did not eat the meal but it looked very basic, mostly from tins. It was a buffet, which we knew.
The cruise boat was very basic. The staff had the temperature set to a very uncomfortable 30 degrees. The food was very poor - frozen vegetables, tinned fruit, over cooked fish and only cookies for desert. Wine was just awful. Staff seemed very uninterested.
Great fun, nice food, although portions small, good musician playing music got everyone singing along, too cold to go on deck to take photos, but fun experience. If lights inside were dimmed slightly, it would be easier to see the outside.
We enjoyed this, food good, staff friendly and the guitar player played some good stuff as well. I only give this a 4 star rating because the boat was hard to find, no name given or exact leaving point.
We chose the 8 pm departure. We had trouble locating where the boat departed, there was no indication on our voucher which dock position the boat was departing from... we ended up ringing the Viator office, who told us the number and argued that it was on the voucher, which it definitely wasn't. Plus boat was not even at the dock, so it was very confusing. Also make sure you take the voucher to a little hut/office on the dock to exchange the voucher for your tickets, no-one told us that either. The cruise itself was OK, taking you further up the river, through the locks to areas you normally would not have seen. Prague by night is very pretty. But the food was very average, would recommend doing the cruise without the food.
We were disappointed in this dinner cruise. The food was average and we were actually rather bored. The people who ran the cruise served the first drinks and supplied the food, but had no interaction with the people on board. There was a musician who was fairly good. We would not book this again nor would we recommend it to anybody.
This dinner cruise did exactly what it said it was going to do. The food was good and and views of Prague were also really good as described. I give this a 4 as it was a good solid and fun cruise and it met expectations however no-one went out of their way to make this extraordinary which is why it doesn't warrant a 5 star rating. Also if you are expecting a full welcome drink this is not what you will get, it is a plum flavoured brandy which is very nice but is only in a shot sized glass. However overall a very good experience.
