An amazing experience
Feb 2021
The dinner cruise was simply amazing. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. It was one of those nights when I felt so grateful for being in Bangkok. We had two excellent crew members Khun First and Khun View who took care of us, including taking amazing pictures. Highly recommend!

Excellent!
We chose this trip on the recommendation from friends and it was as good as they described.
If you want a large ‘party’ boat then this isn’t the one to choose. If you want a relaxing 2 hours with excellent food and service in a relaxed atmosphere then this fits the bill. With only approx 14 covers, all laid out to maximise the views, this feels more personal than the larger alternatives.
Drinks are extra but this isn’t a surprise. Unlike some reviews there was no pressure to drink more than you want to. You also stop for a photo opportunity and are presented with a (free) photo which makes a change from being asked to buy. All in all it was really enjoyable.

Dinner cruise
Nov 2019 • Solo
As described, this was a lot more relaxed and quieter than other cruised. The food was excellent. However if you are planning getting some great photos of Wats by night getting photos from a moving boat by night isn't easy.

Awesome experience
Oct 2019
Food lovers beware, this is a "high quality, lots of food experience"
Couldn't ask for more. The view from the boat make you feel you are in a magical dream. The staff take care of you all the time. Watch our with the drinks, as they are not included and can be really pricey.
This was the prefect place to be for our honey moon and for the bird-day of my wife in the same night. Really glad I found this trip

Great cruise
Jul 2019 • Couples
This was an enjoyable cruise. The food was great. However, I did get tired of seeing the same route for the last 20-30 minutes of the cruise. Also, the drinks are pricey. This is not a cruise with loud music. Expect to see a somewhat mature crowd, i.e., 35-50 years old with families. It's not really for partygoers due to its subtle and calm nature. If you are a couple looking for romance this cruise will work too.

Disappointed!!!
May 2019
The food was a big disappointment, from starters to main meal, can you image 4 pieces of shrimp for two adults, Shrimp was cooked is curry which we didn’t like the food portion is small and the food is warm. We enjoyed the soup only! The boat was nice, however they tried to push you into buying drinks. What a disappointment!

Very low key and excellent relaxing experience
May 2019
We saw several other dinner cruises that had loud music, buffet style eating and hoards of crowds. The Apsara is the complete opposite and we LOVED IT. It was very low key, personalized and a great relaxing experience. The 4 course sit down dinner was amazing, with pleasant staff and great selection of drinks (not included in cruise rate). A definite recommendation if you want to avoid dealing with the hoards of crowds and want a nice dinner with your significant other.

We had a great time on this dinner cruise. The boat was beautiful. Great food, service and ambiance. We were glad we chose this dinner cruise over some of the other options despite it being a little costlier.
