Our team will be in touch shortly to reschedule any bookings that have been affected.  

Our Commitment to Confidence 

River Thames Cruises is committed to ensuring our customers are confident in making a booking by providing them with maximum flexibility during these challenging times. For guests with existing bookings, if your cruise is booked from the 4th July onwards, we will be happy to reschedule your cruise to a later date at no additional cost. We will continue to monitor this if the current restrictions are extended. Customers looking to make a new booking can book with confidence knowing that we will work with you to ensure maximum flexibility should the situation continue or change. 

Our Commitment to your Health 

River Thames Cruises has an immaculate safety and sanitation record and have always operated and maintained a rigorous process around cleanliness and hygiene. Our crew are working to ensure that they meet the latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning protocols. 

We are taking specific steps to include proper and frequent hand washing, thorough disinfection of food preparation surfaces before and after each event, alongside regular sanitization of our vessels before and after service. In addition to these measures, we have increased the frequency and focus of our cleaning procedures, with focus on high-touch areas like handrails and doorknobs, and other surfaces. 

River Thames Cruises would like to thank you for your understanding and support in these unpredictable times and hope you and your families remain safe and well.

Reviews

I just wanted to say a big thank you for hosting our summer party last Thursday. It was a huge success and we all really enjoyed it. Both times we have used your company we’ve been absolutely thrilled.

Gav the Dj was great as were the bar staff, caterers and yourself.

Thank you very much again and I will recommend you to anybody wishing to hire a boat.
