Meridian Dinner Cruise, 2 hours of spectacular dining, sightseeing & live singing & dancing along the Chao Phraya River

After the world has re-opened from Covid-19 lockdowns, me and my family were able to visit again one of our favourite cities in the world - Bangkok. Since Iu2019ve tried once experiencing a Dnner Cruise along the Chao Phraya river together with my Grandma around 2014 before her 80th Bday, the good memories of that trip was etched in my hearts and minds. So being said that, I told myself to bring my parents, sister and nephew this time. And off we did, we booked another company from my last trip 8 years back and was looking for a very affordable price for the same experience and we found Meridian Dinner Cruise. I loved its White, Elegant, Slender, Luxurious and very Modern Cruise ship from the photos and the timing seems perfect for us as well. We booked the ticket via Agoda for about 30 SGD++ for adults and 20++ SGD for my nephew at 19:30 in front of Icon Siam pier which will run for 2 hours of unlimited buffet food and drinks, live entertainment and picturesque sceneries and historic buildings of Thailand along the Chao Phraya river which include the Grand Palace, Wat Arun and the newest landmark of the river and the countryu2019s biggest mall - Icon Siam.nnWe arrived quite early 30 mins before our departure thinking we are already late because we have to walk from behind Icon Siam to the river. It was a very busy, vivid and packed night outside Icon Siam with a colorul and whimsical fountain show, outdoor activities especially for kids, dazzling lights and displays and tons of people either watching the fountain show, just walking around and those who are waiting for their cruise ships. We exchanged our online vouchers for the tickets stipulated on the instructions at the Icon Siam Pier2 Meridian Cruis Counter. After witnessing 3 to 4 cruise ships boarding and departing before us and in fact it seems ours is the last to arrive. Yes we departed 30 mins behind and really hungry with a toddler in tow who is very sleepy already. Note to Meridian to please be on time especially when we try yours again next time.nnDespite the late departure we were really, really excited to board. We took our lovely shots and videos as we go along and enter the ship. After you exchange your voucher, you will be assigned a seat so you will have to find if not ask the crew to assist you. Boarding wss fast, smooth and easy. We were assigned a seat on the upper deck area where the show is happening beside the railing which is one of the best seat out there for a group of 5 people. Thanks for this Meridian for giving us the best sit outdoors and beside the railing where you would have an impeccable view of the river and its surroundings at the same time also the interior of the ship. The inside is very organized, clean, spacious, beautiful and very colorful. There is upper deck outdoor seating and lower deck indoor seating which is airconditioned. It wasnu2019t hot and humid that night instead its very refreshing with a breathe of the riveru2019s fresh air so outdoor for us is perfect. But some people loved to sit indoors with controlled ventilation or if the ship is fully booked you donu2019t have a choice. That night seemed not fully booked so we didnu2019t see the lower deck fully occupied. One thing that took my attention and stood out is their very elegant and posh dining table and chairs. Our table is wrapped in clean White table clothe with Grey placemates and a charming romantic candle lamps and a flower vase. We were seated on a Golden brown classy cushioned chairs - truly a 5 star fine dining experience indeed!!! To top it all off - our tableware was wrapped in plastic which is very hygienic and they already served us cold water and fresh tamarind juice if Iu2019m not mistaken truly refreshing!!! We felt like a VIP, relaxed, comfortable and special for a very affordable price nothing could get better than this.nnAt the center of it all is the long and wide Buffet table serving 16 different types of main dishes on a neatly placed Silver service 8 on each row. We were so hungry that night that right after we were ushered to our seats we went to the Buffet table right away which is already open and ready to serve. I couldnu2019t remember the exact dishes served during our time but I could remember thereu2019s tons of variety on it which include Western food like Italian/French, Asian like Japanese/Chinese and of course Thai. What I could remember are the ones we took like Spaghetti with Tomato sauce, Beef Bourguignon, Grilled Shrimp and Mussels, Sashimi, Sushi, Pad Thai, Fried Rice, Teriyaki chicken, Sauteed Vegetables and Potato Salad. The mains also serve Vegetarian options for veg customers. There are also separate smaller table for Desert, Fruits, Roast Pork/Beef, Soup, Sushi/Sashimi and Appetizers like Salad. We also took a bunch of fresh fruits and deserts like Brownies, Cream Puffs and small cake slices. The food is quite tasty, delicious and satisfying. I especially loved the Beef Bourguignon which is so tender, juicy and very yummy - not all buffet served French food and this is quite pricey on a typical French restau so I took it right away. The Grilled Shrimp is fresh, juice, tender and fatty which really fills your stomach. So those 2 are my top favourite. Sushi is also fresh and tasty and the Sashimi is very fresh and tender. The fruits are perfectly riped and served fresh. And finally the Desert were just the right amount of size, tasty, fluffy, creamy and light - just the right amount of sweetness in it which is perfect to cap off your amazing and satisfying dinner.nnWe decided not to buy alcoholic drinks since we are satisfied with what we have which is included in our ticket. Itu2019s a self-service buffet dinner but the staff are plentiful and ready to assist you at any time. They also roam around the dining area ready to clean your used tableware and leftovers. They also check for water and fruit juice refilling all the time which we really admire. Whilst your having dinner, the band consist of Filipino talents will play non-stop for 2 hours both with their carefully curated songs from different countries and your requests. Me and my father requested 2 songs - I had the Olivia Newton John classic u2018Let Me Be Thereu2019 and my Pa a Visayan Filipino song - u2018Awitin Mo at Isasayaw Kou2019, which means Sing it and I will Dance. Truly wonderful, incredible and talented Filipino band in here - Duo Music headed by the Lead Guy Singer and main Lady vocalist who are both very talented and fantastic. To request a song you can leave a note in a white paper and give it to them in front of the stage. I was truly delighted and surprisd that they both catered to our requests specally for a classic Olivia and a Tagalog song which much to our amazement they played last, the finale song before we took off the boat. My father was really happy and thrilled to experience this first hand much more it was also his pre-Bday treat from us!!! Kudos to this Meridian and keep playing the best band out there!!! :=)nnThere is also a traditional Thai dance with lovely Thai dancers in their traditional bejewelled colorful Thai clothes called Suea Pai adorned with large bling Fans gracefully and classically dancing in the middle of the dining area - not sure if its Thai or Chinese in my opinion but it was a beautiful dance performance truly adorable. Whilst having dinner, watching the band and dance, and thereu2019s even a group of Ladies from Indonesia who were celebrating a Bday dinner dancing on the floor, having small talks, enjoying ourselves, taking time to eat and taking those lovely and special photos and videos we were also greeted and embraced by the magnificent Temples, Palaces, Icons, Buildings and Bridges that span the Mighty and Grand Chao Phraya River. Perhaps for me this is my favourite river in the world, one of the biggest, widest, and mightiest yet it exhudes this charm and beauty whenever I see it. We get to see the lit temples, palaces, buildings, bridges and monuments along the way in those bright Orange/Yellow colours. There was the iconic Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn, the elegant Grand Palace, the iconic Icon SIam - Bangkoku2019s talk of the town and the enigmatic Rama VIII bridge which we crossed under on our way back to the pier. The night was cool, calm, breezy and bright and the waves were just perfect not too big and we didnu2019t feel dizzy at all whilst riding the boat. The ride will make a u-turn from Rama VIII bridge so you would have both views of each side of the river. I was seated on the Icon Siam side when we made our way and the opposite side when we came back.nnAs we made our way back to Pier 2 of Icon Siam the clouds have started to condense bringing some drizzles and light rain but it was the perfect way to cap our amazing, magical, romantic and memorable dinner cruise as a family and finally I got to bring my Parents to witness and experience this one of a kind cruise ship experience on a mighty and beautiful river that is called Chao Phraya. And whatu2019s more my nephew enjoyed his time as well even though its already his sleeping time :=) Kudos to our wonderful and special trip Meridian we will surely be back again given time permits and perhaps celebrate another special occasion when we return. Keep up the Excellent work and See you soon!!! Kapkunkap!!! :=)

Beautiful city views. Must visit.

River Cruise on beautiful Chao Phraya river is a must do activity in Bangkok. We took Meridian cruise since it had Indian food options in its buffet. Seating was on two floors. The top floor does not have non aircon and open area to stand and taking photos. The bottom floor has aircon. But the seating is fixed before you enter the boat. We were seated on the bottom floor but went up for photographs and views.nThe night view of the city is the key highlight of the cruise.

rdoorkzJuly 19, 2023

Awful, again, of my own doing.

Sadly, I booked the wrong date, and we missed the cruise! We arrived a day late; unfortunately, the cruise was full. They offered us passage the next day for an up charge of an extra B200, which is reasonable; however, our travel already had us at our next destination. The mistake was totally mine.nnI called Oh-Hoo, the local tour operator, for help. I began the call with a calm and clear admission of my mistake. The operator then launched! He screamed at me - u0022Why did you not tell me you would miss the cruise?u0022 He repeated the question several times. I met his intensity and insisted that he stop and listen. I proceeded to remind him that I started the conversation with a full acknowledgment of my mistake and that I did not blame him at any time in the short call. I only asked for help and for the possibility of rebooking. Maybe it was a language barrier, and certainly a cultural one. He assumed that I was attacking him and would not help me. I cannot give Oh-Hoo a strong enough condemnation. If you can avoid bookings with them, please do so. T.A. I ask that you find another operator that can offer respectful customer service in the future.

Boat buffet

Would not class this as a sightseeing tour.nFood was okay, some of it a bit cold.nEntertainment- singers good but the system made loud noises. Very loud on the boat.

Wasn't perfect but would definitely cruise again on the Meridian

The day we had this dinner cruise booked, it was totally raining. Wasn't sure if the cruise would still happen so I asked the front desk at my hotel and they said the dinner cruises would still happen even if it was raining. The bottom level of the ship is enclosed and the top is pretty much sheltered from the rain. Seating is assigned so you cannot sit anywhere you want. We were assigned to the lower level with our table right in front of the A/C. Sounds like heaven when it's super hot outside but I felt like a popsicle. It was freezing cold and I didn't have a jacket. There were some kids at the table next to us and the parents asked for a tablecloth for the kids to wrap around themselves. Maybe an hour into the trip, one of the workers on the cruise turned the temp up a little bit but it was still super cold. However, we decided to go up to the top level to check it out and they were the complete opposite. It was hot and kinda musty upstairs with no A/C. The top level is open in the back so it would be impossible to run A/C and fans would probably just blow hot air around. So word of advice, bring a jacket just in case you are assigned to sit on the lower level.nnBecause it was raining, the windows downstairs were covered in raindrops and making it impossible to look out and see the view. I wanted to go on this dinner cruise so we could see all the temples lit up at night but we couldn't see anything. They also have these great singers performing throughout the cruise and it would have been nice if they had given a heads-up when we were approaching the temples so we could try to see them. nnThe food was pretty good. There was a good variety. However, it is a buffet, but not all you can eat. Our table was next to a group of about 12 of the rowdiest, semi-drunk group. It was pretty annoying. They were SO loud and practically screaming while people were performing which I thought was so rude. When it was time to get food, they jumped up right away and I swear their group seemed to have taken most of the food. My family was closer to the end of the line and a lot of the food was almost all gone. I want to say maybe they might have replenished the trays once.nnOverall, we still had a great time. If the annoying group next to us wasn't there, I would rate this very high. nn

Fun night out with family & friends

They arranged the trip well, Boarding, entertaining & dinner (quite many choices of food, dessert), good service - however the seafood (shrimp) wasnu2019t that fresh. Overall it was fun & worth the money. Just in case you are stay a bit away from ICONSIAM, make sure you come there a bit early to avoid traffic because the boat leaves at 7.45pm.

Brilliant evening

Read a lot of bad reviews about bad organisation so we were a bit worried but it was all very organised and ran very smoothly so Iu2019m guessing they have listened to the reviews and made improvements. The boat was luxury and the buffet meal was also very nice. Much better than we were expecting!

LynA115May 28, 2023

Best Bet

We had a wonderful time on our evening cruise. This is well worth the money. Much cheaper than most of the others and not much different at all. Great value for the money. Great staff and nice buffet. All the cruises seem to go the same route on the river so this is really your best bet. Maybe a little more laid back than some of the other party boats, but we liked that better :)

Terrible Service.Don't book and pay in advance!

Dreadful service.nWe turned up with an online ticket I'd booked today.nOnly to be told that the boat was full and the reservation I'd already paid for was cancelled. I was told I had been sent an email...... today. This was whilst I was traveling around Bangkok.nThe young Thai man at the check in desk basically couldn't give a stuff and was happy to tell me so!nWhen I looked at the fine print of my email ( that I looked at once the check in desk told me they had sent me an email !) I see I will be refunded ' hopefully' in 3 to 5 days. Thanks a lot Meridian. I won't be using you again and as for your 'front man' at the check in desk; what a dreadful representative for your company. Didn't get his name but I did get a picture of him. I had to take my Thai partner away from you before she hit you. Your employee was so rude and up himself!nNow my partner has calmed down a bit she tells me this employee was happy to tell the other employees I was a u0e44u0e2du0e49u0e1du0e23u0e31u0e48u0e07u0e42u0e07u0e48u0e46nStupid foreigner!nWell, If he'd like to tell me that then at least have the courage to tell me that face to face!

Best experience ever.

This is worth it. Don't be intimidated by the crowds. It is actually organised. Just rock up early not on time to ensure you get on. There are two levels. I'm glad I was put on the bottom deck as it's enclosed with glass and has air con. The top deck has no air con and is open air. You can see everything regardless of deck. They do announce the places you pass by. There are no waves if you are worried about motion sickness. The boat is big and there is plenty of space. Don't be worried about no food as there is plenty. Lots of choices of 4 dishes of Indian food, sandwich tray, fried fish, unlimited soft drink, coffee and tea, steam rice, spaghetti bolognese, mashed potato, Thai mince, chicken dish, vege dish, sushi and another 3 trays of cooked seafood like sashimi, prawns and oysters or mussels, soups, fruits and desserts. This is worth the price, it is the cheapest cruise that's on offer but still value for money. They also honoured the slice of birthday cake for my mum. Give this cruise a go. No regrets.

Fun but

It was fun, but the music was really loud. The food was oke. But u dit sick after this cruise. Still dont know if it was because of the cruise or something else

299denicahApril 03, 2023

Terrible, poor, cheap exercise! Don't get fooled by the misleading good reviews!

This is a terrible experience and would never recommend to anyone to waste money and time doing it. We ended up with an indoors table and couldn't see a thing. The food was very cheap, poor quality and me and my partner had stomach issues afterwards. It's just a very cheap cruise experience. I feel sorry for the staff working there as they are very kind and did their best to make all the guests feel welcome and happy, but with the poor quality of the food and the cruise it's just impossible. I have no idea who gives this 5*'s really misleading and fools people to book it, just like it did with us. 15 minutes in, we realised we made a mistake but we were trapped there for 2 hours with no escape and a ruined evening.....

sandesh2019March 30, 2023

Can do better things for the price

Below Avg experience. Like many others, I wish i had not taken this package. Crowded boat, avg food (both non veg & veg), unclean toilets, I really wish i had spent that money elsewhere. Being a vegetarian, there were hardly 3-4 options, which tasted poor. Most of the tables were placed next to each other & our was between another table & food area on the ground floor which wasnt even open top, which gave us zero privacy & enjoyment. Not a lot of place to walk and you find it awkward to stand next to someone's table & click photos. I would suggest you plan your day better and skip this tour. Not worth the money, time & effort.

tobys428February 20, 2023

Do not recommend this cruise

I wish we had not booked this trip unfortunately. There were SO, SO many people packed into the boat, our dinner seats were next to the food and away from the view from the boat, the food was not great (a guest dropped the serving spoon on the floor and then picked it up and put it back in the food ud83eudd22), and hard to get drinks due to a long line. The only good part was when we went out to the front of the boat to see Bangkok at night (although awkward standing next to other people's tables). Overall, I would not recommend this cruise.
