The Showboat is also known for its 1-hour cabaret show “Voyage of Love” performed onstage by a brilliant crew of dancers, songstresses and follies. The show is also claimed to be the longest-running show in the country. The show is sure to zest up the festive mood and you can capture the essence of what it means to be a Sydneysider.
