What You Can Expect

Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

Enjoy fine Thai food on the Bangkok Dinner Cruise

Start your Chao Phraya River cruise with hotel pickup in central Bangkok. Your guide drives you to the waterfront and accompanies you aboard a luxurious riverboat for a leisurely dinner cruise on this major waterway.
Find a seat in the warmly furnished dining room, or head out to the deck to see the illuminated Bangkok skyline slip past. As the boat drifts along, your guide points out top landmarks lining the banks of the Chao Phraya; admire the 17th-century Temple of Dawn, known as Wat Arun, and see Bangkok’s famous Grand Palace — even more dazzling when lit up at night.
Treat yourself to the large buffet of Thai dishes and desserts, then settle down for dinner while you listen to a live band and other entertainers. 
After disembarking the boat, complete your 2.5- to 3-hour excursion with return transport to your central hotel.

It was a dinner Cruise with so many beautiful sceneries and delicious dishes.

AS there were many cruise ships provided by various companies, it was very confusing to understand which ship to board.
I and two Scottish customers had to wait for approximately 1 hour before we embarked on the cruise in the crowded queue, but it was tolerable and allowable.

Once you embark on the cruise, you would find a lot of dishes waiting for you. Also, the magnificent views of some illuminated temples are awesome and you can see them from both the dining hole and the viewing deck.
While enjoying the beautiful sceneries, you can also have a concert with some beautiful drag queens' dances at the dining hole.

To sum up, It was an awesome cruise for those who prefered some parties.

Loved the food and entertainment. Getting on the boat wasn’t as big an issue as some reviews make it sound. The tables were reserved so didn’t get a window seat but you can walk around and take pictures. Our hotel wasn’t on the pickup list but they picked us up for 100 baht per person which was fine

We went on this cruise on our first day in Bangkok, after a long hellish flight and no sleep, and it was well worth it. It was the perfect introduction to Bangkok.

Booking this activity was easy. The operator confirmed our booking and hotel pickup.
They were very professional and picked us up from our hotel on time.

When we got to the peer we were given stickers and told to wait for our boat. There were hundreds of other people milling around also waiting for their boats.
Some had similar stickers, some didn't and there were several different boats that came and went. It was a bit chaotic.
We were a bit unclear as to how we would identify our boat. In the end there was no need to worry. The name of the boat matched the name on the sticker we were given. If that had been explained to us we would have been spared a few anxious moments.

Boarding the ship was also a little chaotic as well, with a few people pushing and shoving with no regard for the stairs or the elderly who need a little extra time to navigate them. This I can't blame on the tour operator though, I would think it is just common decency to not push or shove and wait your turn.

The boat is amazing and the view of Bangkok at night is breathtakingly beautiful. It is very romantic and just standing on the deck taking in the view is, in my opinion, the highlight of this excursion.
If you are looking forward to the food and entertainment more than the views, you might be a little underwhelmed.
The food was okay but not the best dining experience in Bangkok.
The entertainers are very energetic and lively but at times not the best vocalist :-
They try their best to get the crowd interested and I would give them 10 out of 10 for effort.
It makes my list of top 10 things to do in Bangkok.
