Dinner Cruise by Grand Pearl in Bangkok
Reviewed 9 February 2018

Wonderful Pearl Cruise is different from Grand Pearl Cruise but operated by the same company. The first have higher rate than the latter. But since I had tried Chao Phraya dinner cruise and Vertical cruise, I can say when it comes to food, Chao Phraya have more choices and they are laid in one place. Wonderful Pearl Cruise have a open air deck but if you want to have a bit of fine dining, go for the air conditioned area. I noticed the tables in the open air deck did not even have a table mat and of course bit dark. They have a live band entertainment too, the same as other big boat cruises.

It is cheaper to book from an agency that to direct to the company. Only thing was that I booked with a roundtrip service. In the voucher, the advice was to be at the hotel lobby at 5:45p.m. I had to call the booking agency to make sure we are due for pick-up and the pick up arrived after 45 minutes with nothing sort of apology.

We had a great table at the very front of the Wonderful Pearl. It was a lovely night although over priced for what you got. Typical Buffett food and music - the band was fantastic but we could have been in any river. There was no dialogue about what you were passing although the lights were beautiful. The food, oh my it was just average & buffets always bring out the worst in people.

The Cruise itself is fantastic, the food is average at best; definitely not what is advertised.

We were ushered onto one ship and promptly walked through the gang plank to another less impressive ship next door!!!!.

The entertainment was average.

Drinks were hot and the food was cold.

Doesnt get any worse than this, totally overpriced and totally not what they advertise.

After visiting Ayutthaya we had lunch on the Grand Pearl River boat while we cruised back down the Chao Phraya river into the centre of Bangkok. The variety of food was good, but not particularly Thai. The boat was full, so there was a bit of a queue at the buffet. A variety of drinks were available. Cannot comment on the price as it was included in our day tour. After lunch we went up on the sundeck to see the views better.
We always find that a river cruise through a city gives you a different view of the place, so we enjoyed seeing Bangkok from the river boat.
We boarded the boat at 1.15pm and disembarked at 3.45pm.

The Chinese counter staff is so rude and impolite. Dinner on the cruise is expensive. I don't understand why the cruise company hires this kind of staff. I think she will destroy many tourists' beautiful nights.
