Dinner Cruise - Loy Nava

Recommended Posts

I took this cruise with my hand-picked crew last October: http://www.bangkokcruise.th1.org/chao-phraya-princess-cruise.html

 

I didn't really pile the plate high since I didn't know what was what (if u know what I mean). However, I did find a particular dish of hoy that satisfied my hunger. :content: Here are some pics of part of my crew:

Several ships of this type depart from the River City dock at about the same time. (Adjacent to the Sheraton Hotel). All looked pretty full.

 

I guess u could do the trip cheaper by renting a long-tail, grabbing some plastic bags of "mystery meat" from a street vendor, and pluggin in your mp3 earphones. 555555

I think the food in general at Yok Yor has gone downhill in the past few years. Used to be a regualr place to go (the resturant, not the cruise), but not anymore.

Find any you do like? I did one years back, tourist rip off, modern boat no "charm/atmosphere" and bland food...like the idea of a nicer boat with some charm...

 

On this note, anyone do the dinner cruise back from Ayuttaya recently?

Figure what you would pay for a hotel buffet - not much different than dinner for two on the Loy Nava cruise. You're paying for the atmosphere, not the food. I've avoided the big dinner cruise boats. They look more like a floating army mess hall than anything.

 

Wonder if the Oriental Hotel ever got another cruise going. The Oriental Queen sank - somewhat suspiciously. The boat was old and needed repairs, and the hotel took their time about refloating it. The Oriental Queen went to Ayutthaya, but it was only a one way trip. You either went by boat and came back by bus, or did it the other way around.
