While we were at first disappointed not to be on the Apsara cruise - the old rice barge is being refurbished - we instead were put on the new Saffron dinner cruise, and it was delightful. The views of colorful river traffic and the powerful site of the Wats and Palace all lit up at night were stunning, but truly the really star of the show for us was the meal. Five star all the way, with exceptional personal service, lovely orchids and lotus flowers on the table - even an orchid for behind my ear - and many amazing courses served with style. You had a tasting bit of everything in several courses - each delightful in its own way. There were also two brief flower shows of two dancers in traditional styles that added to the atmosphere, and they allowed pictures with them if you liked. While the open top of the boat had a par and modern dance music spun by a DJ, the downstairs was another world, quiet and very romantic, and the perfect way to end our month in Thailand.

Outstanding! Gourmet food, impeccable service. If you want to party hard, dance and drink, then cruise with a party boat. If you want an exceptional evening, book with Apsara.

Awesome introduction to Bangkok with this dinner cruise. The food was inspiring and the flavors were not the ones we normally eat in restaurants. The views were breathtaking and the time we spent at the lit up Wat Arun was the highlight of the trip! At the end of the cruise when the lights dimmed and a dessert was brought out with candles and the crew and other guests sang Happy Birthday to my mother, she was totally surprised and embarrassed (but privately thrilled :)) with gesture. Thanks for making my mother's 70th birthday so special.

We thoroughly enjoyed this relaxing river cruise. The food and service was excellent and the view of the various temples at night was spectacular.

It was a great way to finish our trip to Bangkok and we completely recommend it.

My husband and I traveled on this dinner cruise in November, 2018. The cruise was very relaxing and interesting in a renovated rice barge. The service and food were wonderful. Bangkok has many lights at night and this cruise is a great way of seeing them.
