Pleasant. A must-do in Melaka, but nothing extraordinary compared to river cruises in other places in the world. Evening lights are quite nice, but also nothing extraordinary compared to city lights elsewhere.

Relaxing 40 minutes round trip with a friendly staff. The only thing that gave this review a star down because of the smell. Other than that, great!
