I guess one thing I don't like about this cruise on thames is that you can't focus on the landmarks around you. I guess it's not ideal if you want to see the real London

If you're travelling alone or with your spouse, I'd recommend getting the upgrade to get half a bottle of house wine while taking in the views

Even though this cruise was very enjoyable I thought it was just a little more crowded than I was expecting
