Sydney’s Cruising Pride: Sydney Showboats Dinner Cruise
Cruise dining on Sydney Harbour is a burgeoning trend in Sydney these days. Australian Cruise Group, Sydney’s premier cruise operator, is proud to present you Sydney’s most-loved Sydney Showboat, an authentic paddlewheeler with theatre-style interiors and a vintage-style wrap-around verandah. The Showboat dinner cruise in Sydney is one of the most sought-after vessels and the reasons are plenty.
This unique Sydney Harbour dinner cruise is the only cruise with a show in Australia and it offers an exhilarating cruise dining experience. Since the advent of Showboat on Sydney Harbour, the concept of dinner cruises have been revolutionised and has fashioned a league of its own in the cruising industry. The cruise offers a seated and served menu that features some of the best Australian dishes, freshly prepared by experienced chefs. As the vessel sails past the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, you are offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to marvel at their architectural brilliance from up-close. These structures are a scintillating sight to watch, especially at night, when the whole of the Sydney skyline turns a dazzling reel of lights.
Now here’s the thing about paddlewheelers. They were once the backbone of a romantic era of commerce and nation building in Australia and were last seen in the 1880s on Sydney Harbour. A cruise dining experience on board Sydney Showboat will rekindle the nostalgic experience of cruising on an authentic paddlewheeler in the bygone era. This authentic paddlewheeler is a fully air-conditioned vessel with plush decor that exudes a romantic ambience. Plus, the unique theatre-style structure of the vessel enables uninterrupted views to the stage. Take a stroll through the wrap-around verandah to get a sense of the irresistible old-world charm and perhaps, enjoy a drink while taking in the scintillating harbour views from the deck. The interiors of the Showboat has a breathtaking pillarless and theatre-style layout with priority seating options. The Showboat offers three different cruise dining packages, each with different inclusions and seating options, namely Prelude, Panache and Prestige. You can also choose a show-only package if you’re on board just for the show.
The 1-hour live cabaret show is performed by an all-Australian crew of talented dancers and songstresses. Get your front-row seats on board the Showboat to experience the show at its best and travel back in time to the glorious bygone years. The 1-hour show ‘Voyage of Love’ takes you an exhilarating journey into a vibrant world of colours and music. The dancers in colourful costumes perform an energetic dance that features breathtaking dance moves and enchanting song routines from around the world. The show is absolutely a brilliant entertainment option that has been ever offered on board a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise.
If you’re looking for a unique venue to host a private event in Sydney, the Showboat can be chartered for a seamless experience. Whether it is a business event, gala dinner or a conference, the Showboat offers all-inclusive packages that are tailored to suit customer requirements. Showboat’s private deck is also available for charter, if you’re looking for an intimate space for a small party function. You can approach our events team for a tailored quote that suits your budget. The Showboat Sydney Harbour cruise is one of the popular vessels that have been actively running special harbour event cruises during Australia Day, Vivid Sydney, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and so on.
For a fun night out in Sydney, a dinner cruise experience on board the famous Sydney Showboat will be a wonderful one without doubt. Book your best seats on board the showboat right away to promise yourself a memorable night.
