Guest Review

I will be recommending to friend.. I couldn’t fault anything.. from the time we lined up and was met by a very friendly blond women to being farewell at the end of the night by her… we booked only a couple of weeks ago and add the addition of premium table… so we right up the front… Food was wonderful and we purchased wine using the QR code… congratulations on a well organised event….loved it.

Smiles all the way. Loved the show .. Thankyou very much .. We will be back.

This was our first show boat experience and unanimously we all say: wow. You definitely made our vivid night. Thank you for delivering and what an awesome night at the Sydney showboat and vivid. We all came out appreciative of our experience.

We had trouble downloading the app for when drinks, one of your friendly staff members helped us with it. The issue might have been the age of our mobile phone. Perhaps an idea for booking next time we can have a pre paid option for drinks or can purchase drink credits when booking online. The paddle boat show boat is a wonderful opportunity to step back in time. We loved it. We also like the romantic setting for dinner and the beautifully selected music. It was a magical evening.Thank you.

All members of my group had a great night. Food was spot on. Entertainment was spectacular. Didn't expect live vocalist which really enhanced the performance. Boat was almost a show of it's own and view of the harbor, especially with vivid going on made night perfect.
