Combine Quality Dining Experience With a Spectacular Cabaret Show
Experience a spectacular Sydney Harbour evening on board a comfortable and spacious dinner cruise in Sydney. Sydney Showboat, owned and operated by Australian Cruise Group, is an authentic paddlewheeler that has been a popular dining destination among both the tourists and locals in the city alike. If you’re confused about where to dine out in Sydney this weekend, come on board the amazing Showboat for a memorable treat.
Sydney Showboat is a unique Sydney Harbour dinner cruise that effortlessly combines dining, sightseeing and entertainment. As you board the Showboat, you will be greeted by stunning follies who will guide you to your reserved tables at the command by the cruise conductor. Showboat offers four unique cruising packages namely Prestige, Panache, Prelude and Show-only package. The cruise is popularly known for its 1-hour live cabaret show that is performed by an all-Australian crew of dancers, songstresses and follies. Choose Showboat’s Prestige package to enjoy a 4-course dinner that consists of an entree platter, a main course dish, dessert and a cheese platter. For a 3-course choice menu, choose Showboat Panache package; choose Prelude package for a 2-course dinner. All dishes served on board are freshly prepared by experienced chefs and served hot to your table. We also offer a show-only package that excludes dinner and drinks. However, if you’ve chosen the show-only package, you can opt for a drinks upgrade or a Deluxe Cheese Platter. We have a fully licensed bar on board that serves a wide selection of drinks and beverages to enhance your dining experience. The cheese platter consists of a variety of cheeses, muscatels, walnuts, crackers and seasonal fruits.
The Showboat is our oldest cruise that boasts of an irresistible old-world charm. With its vast wrap-around verandah and paddlewheel, the Showboat is a truly unique and elegant cruise on the harbour. The vessel has a theatre-style pillarless layout and priority seating option that ensures unobstructed views to the stage. With fully air-conditioned extravagant interiors, modernised galleys and a spacious dining salon, the Showboat is designed to assure comfort and luxury at all touch points. Today, the Showboat is one of the most preferred dinner cruises in Sydney, among both the tourists and the locals alike. We have more than 7 million happy customers who approve of our top-quality services. Come on board the Showboat to experience one of the best dining experiences you will have in Sydney. The 1-hour show “Voyage of Love” performed by the artists on board is also the longest-running show in Australia. Witness the riveting colourful performance showcased by the artists who will port you into a mesmerising world of music, art and dance. “Voyage of Love'' is a spectacular show that features various dance forms of different countries and cultures that will leave you bewitched for a while. Unlike watching a movie at a theatre that doesn’t allow spot dining, the showboat gives you a wonderful opportunity to enjoy lip-smacking dishes while you’re watching the show. If you love taking photos, the cruise offers you plenty of opportunities to capture amazing photos of the show as well as the harbour attractions including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.
Sydney Showboat complies with the NSW government’s rules and regulations for safe distancing to ensure the safety of our guests on board. We also have reduced the seating capacity of the cruise by 50%. We also have premium glass boats and a luxury catamaran cruise that offer amazing cruise dining packages for you. Choose any of the cruises for a memorable night of entertainment and fun in Sydney. So what are you waiting for? Book your seats on board a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise today!
