Night Dining in Sydney | The Best Harbour Cruise Dinner
Who doesn’t love dining out with their favourite people! Dining together is always a wonderful way to connect with the people you care about. In Sydney, there are countless places where you can head over for a wonderful dine-out experience. The city dwellers, more so, enjoy dining out at night to be surrounded by the charming lights and sights. Australian Cruise Group, Sydney’s premier cruise operator, brings you an excellent choice of dining at the world’s largest natural harbour—Sydney Harbour.
The dinner cruises in Sydney offer a great experience that combines dining, night sightseeing and entertainment, all at an affordable price. One of our most popular cruises is Sydney Showboat, an authentic paddlewheeler with a theatre-style layout and wrap-around verandah. The Showboat takes you around the harbour to treat you to some of the best views you will ever see including close-up views of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Enjoy a sumptuous harbour cruise dinner on board the luxury paddlewheeler for an unforgettable memory. The Showboat is also the only cruise on the harbour that offers a show on board. “Voyage of Love”, a 1-hour cabaret show, which is also the longest-running cabaret in Australia. The show is performed live on stage by a talented all-Australian cast of dancers, songstresses and follies. The show is a riveting and colourful rendition of various dance forms across the world and offers a sneak-peek into their cultures. A harbour cruise dinner on board the Showboat includes a lavish menu that is prepared to perfection by our in-house team of experienced chefs to ensure maximum taste and quality. We offer 3 menu variations on board the dinner cruise namely Prestige, Panache and Prelude which serve a 4-course, 3-course and 2-course menus respectively. The Showboat’s menu features a selection of best-known Australian dishes such as Smoked Salmon and prawn ceviche, oven-roasted chicken breast and Chef’s deconstructed eton mess. You can watch the show while enjoying your dessert or order a glass of your favourite drink from the bar. The Showboat has a fully licensed bar that serves a wide selection of premium beers, wines, soft drinks and juices. Choose a beverage upgrade to enjoy a roving service of your favourite drinks for the duration of the cruise. We also offer an additional upgrade of a Deluxe Cheese Platter that consists of seasonal fruits, muscatels, walnuts, quince and crackers.
A spectacular and memorable cruising experience in Sydney is what we promise on board the amazing paddlewheeler. With fully air-conditioned and opulent interiors characterised by back-lit marble walls, pillarless layout and priority seating, wrap-around verandah and modernised galley.
