Full description

Your evening will start with a warm welcome and a complimentary glass of bubbly to get you in the mood. Then as you set sail, the first course of your 3-course dinner is served. As you enjoy your starter, the ChiJazz band will launch into the first part of their set for the evening. ChiJazz has an extensive repertoire of tunes, ranging from jazz classics to contemporary pop tunes. Popular tunes performed include songs like At Last, Cry Me a River, Girl from Ipanema, Have You Met Miss Jones, Makin’ Whoopee, Mercy Mercy Mercy, Night and Day, and Summertime. As you sail on the newest addition to the fleet, the stunning Millennium Diamond, towards the glittering skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, you will enjoy your main course and perhaps another glass of wine from the bar. As you make room for dessert and tea or coffee, the band will be preparing to return for the second half of their set. Enjoy more great jazz and if the mood takes you, it will be time to take to the floor for a little cheek to cheek action. The dancing continues until you dock at around 23:00, when you will depart.

    This activity is absolutely fantastic! Glass of prosecco on arrival, and all three courses were delicious without being too plain or spicy. Great staff, very friendly, and the band was great entertainment. Views were stunning, top of the boat was open if you wanted to get out for some fresh air, to photograph, or for a smoke. Definitely recommend if you're looking to do something different for an evening.

    Beautiful evening … great views from upper deck. We had a center table and it was a warm night so we preferred the upper deck. We were pleasantly surprised by the dinner … much better than airplane food as we read in other reviews. Jazz was a nice addition. Great way to see the city at night!

    Very happy with this experience, the food was very good and was spread out for the entire cruise.The only little niggle was it took a long time to bring the coffee around and I was the last one and there was not much milk left so my coffee was too strong. The people doing the jazz playing were very talented and the Lady singer was very good and had a lovely voice.
