Showboat Reviews

There were 4 sisters and a sister-in-law from the UK who had never been to Sydney. This was the best experience for all of us.


It was absolutely a fantastic night to celebrate my 50th Birthday and it’s highly recommended! It was truly a night to remember! Thank you so much for the beyond expectation service!!! We Loved and enjoyed it!


We had a wonderful time and the entertainment was wonderful. We only had one issue at the end of the night to be told we would be charged for a bottle of wine which we were told at the start of the night was included. Staff were very professional and apologetic and admitted their mistake. This was my second time on the showboat and great value for money.


We were visiting from England, relative's,and this was are last night , well it's was a great night ,and thank you very much ,are relative's will be booking again with some friends.


Wow, thank you for a great night. Took the cruise on a whim and enjoyed every bit of it. To dine on this great harbour, enjoy a fantastic meal ... and then a most entertaining show: what a night. Thanks for sharing this with us.


Pleasently impressed by the whole experience & would recommend this cruise to family/friends. Suggestions of a finger bowl served with prawns & drink service was a little slow/ difficult to attract the attention of a waiter from 11pm onwards.

Fiona and Harry

Fab set up with tables assigned rather than the awful scramble we had on Fantasea New Year’s Eve so called ultimate cruise. Food was lovely, boarding easy a very pleasant experience.


It was excellent! I loved every minute as did my 3 other guests. Thank you so much. I have promoted it to all my friends and family.


Supurb show, all my best to staff and performers.


On this occasion we had our own table which made the experience much better.


A wonderful way to see in the new year 19/20. Food and beverages top notch. Staff absolutely delightful. The only grievance was not being able to see the final bit of the fireworks owing to the taller boat ahead of us moving around and at the end totally blocked out the view. We were on a boat 5 years ago and this did not happen then. Otherwise, you give your passengers a fantastic overall new year's eve experience and couldn't be bettered we're sure.
