Rock hard scones and low quantity of food on arrival. We’re told problems with suppliers. Great for the stunning views of London. Overall I’d say it’s overpriced. Disappointing sadly.

I was a little nervous about todays cruise, having read some of the reviews on here. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Ok the food wasn't exactly michelin star, but when they are producing food for so many I'm not sure you can expect more. This is a great way to see the
