Overall it was a good experience. The bar tenders were nice but the space was tight. Lauren visited Westminster Pier on 31 Dec 2016

It took forever to get onto the boat due to the checking of ladies bags, those that were able to get onto the boat quickly snapped up the tables, people weren't really willing to share the tables so this was disappointing also there wasn't anywhere you could put your coat so you had to hold it all night. The venue wasn't decorated for new year’s so there wasn't the feeling of a party, Didn't like the DJ who just sat there with his wife playing the same music with 1 light which didn't cover the dance floor. The toilets didn't flush so was unhygienic. We paid £800 for 4 of us and expected more than what we got. The food was okay and Jim the events manager did a good job of defusing a fight and made an effort to check if people. I wouldn't recommend the event for the price we paid clearly, we just paid for the view and not the event. It certainly wasn't a big bang boat party. I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend this night again and it should be charged at £100 per person not £200. Not worth the money.

It was a very nice experience, a great view of London on Thames by night. Good location, good organization and wonderful view of the fireworks. I would prefer more different music, dj played same music for the whole night. The buffet was too light and we had to pay for a little bottle of spumante. Anyway I would suggest to whom wants to spend a special new year's eve. alessandra visited Westminster Pier on 31 Dec 2016
