  • This was okay, not spectacular, just okay.

  • Disappointed and not worth the money. I booked this trip for my birthday and was served themes on a fish dish. The main fish course came out stone cold and I couldn’t eat. For dessert, a chopped nectarine in a plastic dish. There was no indication that we could move to the upper deck to see views.

  • This was a decent trip which we enjoyed, the boat was nice, the staff were friendly and the food was good....but, the menu was very fish heavy, OK for me - I like fish - but I know other travellers were not so enamoured. The music was OK if a little loud for my taste. The biggest problem is that the Tiber is quite narrow and has very high embankments which means you can't actually see a great deal of the city, so its not like a trip on the Danube or the Thames for example. Also beware, there are some steep steps to get to the landing so not ideal if you have mobility issues.

  • The cruise took about 2 hours although at least an hour of this was stationary underneath a bridge. Not sure whether this was because it was raining and the staff had difficulty releasing the blinds or whether this is normal. This meant that those of us sat on the outside edge of the room were considerably wet through the dining experience.
    The boat was freezing cold expected as the boat was open so would not advise outside of the summer months. Food was edible, wine was slow in coming.
    Overall experience was fun - singer was excellent !

  • This was a nothing special dinner cruise. The food was average and came out cold as was written in other reviews. There was no one glass of champagne--it was a splash--no more than half a glass. BUT--you could buy wine at 30-50 Euros per bottle. There are no sights on the river--there are graffiti-filled walls on both sides.
    There isn't a lot of soothing music--there is a DJ who sings like it is karaoke night in the lounge.

    Upon entry--they put you in a pre-selected table and ours was at the back of the boat. It began raining and I got soaked since it took over 20 minutes for them to decide to park under a bridge and lower the tarps. They didn't know how to lower the tarp at first--but a passenger yes--a passenger told them how to do it. At the end of the evening--we naturally got our full bill for the wine--with nothing discounted for the inconvenience of getting wet. Not every table got wet--just the ones on the sides and most definitely the back table.

    This is my first time in Rome and the River Cruise sounds romantic and nice. This was neither. I wish I had gone to a nice restaurant in town--the food would have been better and warmer and I would have been drier.

  • my worst dinner of the week,we had some rainit happen,my wife and other guest got wet nothing was done to solve the problem.the table next to me start yelling at the waiter they came with towel for the table and by accident drop the bottle of wine of the couple in the floor.they came back with another bottle and say sorry but at the end they charge the bottle....thats the kind of service we got on the boat.
    dont sale this tour compagnie.

  • I liked the Night cruise. The musician was very good, and I loved that she sang in English as well as other languages. The staff was friendly and helpful. The cruise was pleasant, moved at a good pace, and was not rocky. The food was okay. I didn't taste anything bad, but nothing stood out either.
    The most inconvenient part of the cruise was after I got off. It was about 10:30pm, and I was traveling solo. As I headed up to the street to hail a cab, I noticed no one was stopping at the cab stand. I waited 20 minutes with no luck. I started to walk to another spot and could not find a cab. I must have walked for 25 minutes, almost midnight, before a cab stopped for me. I later found out that it is illegal for cabs to stop for individuals. I am so grateful that he actually stopped. I don't know how I would have gotten back to my hotel. I'm not sure how the cruise company could change this situation, so I can't blame anyone but myself. I do however want to warn people who do not have access to a vehicle elderly, those with children, solo travelers, etc that the cab situation can be tricky.

  • This was the low point of our stay in Rome. This night river cruise is not at all what it's advertised to be. The dinner food was cold, the barge pretty much just motored back and forth past Castel San Angelo. It was obvious that it had been oversold and tables very lined up very close together...a family style type of setting. There was some entertainment.....not terrible....but no dialogue from staff. If I had to define it, I'd define it as a tourist trap and would not recommend it to anyone. Simply not worth the money.

  • It was a typical Rome summer evening---beautiful but steamy. We thought the boat would have some cooling devices---fans at least---but no. We were seated at a small table and brought some much needed ice water. We began our cruise just as the lights along the river began to twinkle. We were ready for a great evening. Not so much.
    The first course was described as shrimp cocktail--tiny shrimp drowning in a heavy and tasteless mayonnaise-based sauce. Not very appetizing. The second course, which took a while to arrive, was what was supposed to be a lasagna in a bechamel sauce. It was cold not intentionally! and had the consistency of congealed glue. It, too, contained the same seafood mixture of the appetizer course! Inedible.
    The entree the worst of all---smelly, underseasoned, BOLIED white fish the server could not identify it for me in Italian, English, or Spanish! overcooked carrots, green beans, and squash, and undercooked potatoes. The meal was accompanied by some tasty rolls.
    Dessert was forgettable---some kind of sponge cake. We were offered a yummy after-dinner drink called sorbetto. The service was perfunctory at best with staff members chatting among themselves and texting during and between courses.
    The entertainment was a young lady with a lovely voice. The scenery was breathtaking, and the Bachelor Party was charming.
    Pizza, a bottle of wine, and a stroll along the Tiber would've been time and money much better spent.

  • Found it a bit difficult to find but once we did we were relived! myself and my boyfriend sat up on the deck with a few others we got a small glass of wine and the food was just a small selection of cold bites which I wouldnt consider amazing at all. The view from the boat and the things you learn along the way was very interesting and good to see and explore the city in a different way. I probably would advise to sneak a cheeky small bottle of prosecco into your bag and some crisps to keep you going!
