Who doesn’t love an occasional night of good food and entertainment! But in the wake of a raging pandemic, we have strived to contain ourselves at home along with our gastronomic and travel urges. However, today Sydney is slowly springing back to life as the restrictions are being lifted and we are filled with hope.
On this occasion, Australian Cruise Group is happy to invite you back on board our popular cruises on Sydney Harbour. One of our most-loved vessels of all time has been Sydney Showboats, an authentic paddlewheeler with an amazing theatre-style layout. The best thing about the Showboat is that it offers a well-tailored harbour cruise dinner experience on weekends at an affordable rate. While the whole world rants about welcoming the new normal, we have many big and small businesses in the city that push towards this reality. We, as Sydney’s premier cruise operator, have also been striving towards rebuilding the city life. Choose a dinner cruise in Sydney that combines dining, night sightseeing and entertainment. If you’ve been longing for a while to go out and enjoy a fun night with your favourite people, the Showboat is the perfect answer for you. With a fully air-conditioned and climate-controlled interior, spacious dining deck and a pillarless theatre layout, the showboat is a true wonder in itself. It radiates an irresistible old-world charm which will make you linger a little longer even after the cruise. The show staged on board the cruise, a 1-hour cabaret called “Voyage of Love”, is the longest-running show in Australia. Yes, that’s right! You can watch this show not at the Opera House or any other theatre in the city, but on board the prestigious Showboat dinner. This vessel is equipped with the finest nautical amenities to offer our guests maximum comfort and luxury.
The Showboat serves a delicious dinner that consists of several authentic and fusion dishes that are prepared by experienced chefs. You can enjoy the dinner while being entertained by the artists on board. The show, “Voyage of Love”, is performed by very talented Aussie dancers, songstresses and follies. From the moment you’re welcomed on board by the beautiful follies, you are taken on a wonderful journey that entices all your senses. The show features a number of dance forms in a riveting choreography that will port you into a phenomenal world of art, music and dance. As the cruise sets off from the King Street Wharf, you are treated to a slew of colourful sights that will take your breath away! The cruise elegantly glides under and past the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House before heading towards Shark Island and then back towards the boarding station.
Sydney Harbour is the most beautiful during the twilight hours. A Sydney Harbour dinner cruise on board the Showboat will treat you to the evening sky and night lights that makes the city look even more glamorous. The cruise has a vintage-style wrap-around verandah from where you can enjoy these amazing views, perhaps with a glass of bubbles in your hand. The vessel has a fully licensed bar on board that serves a wide variety of drinks and beverages. You can either choose a beverage package to enjoy a selection of House Spirits, wines and beers for the duration of the cruise or purchase the drinks of your choice directly from the bar.
Our greatest happiness has always been seeing the happiness and satisfaction of our customers. We have a friendly crew on board who are dedicated to making our customers feel at home. Today, we have more than 7 million happy customers who approve of our services and we are excited to have more of you come on board to experience the real joy of cruise dining.
