Cruise Additional Information
We operate two authentic paddlewheelers on our regular nightly Sydney Showboat Dinner Cruise: Sydney Showboat II and Harbour Ballroom. Your reservation on the night, will be allocated to either of these two vessels at the company’s discretion. Your group will be allocated individual reserved tables
We recommend all guests arrive at the wharf at least 15 minutes prior to commencement of boarding time to collect your boarding pass. Please allow sufficient time for travel as all of our cruises will depart at the designated time on your cruise confirmation
The boat will not wait for any passengers beyond the designated departure time. Even in the instance a few passengers within a group are running late, the boat will not wait for them to join the cruise. No refund or credit will be issued for passengers who do not board the cruise on time
Children under the age of 16, cruising on our vessels, must always be under the supervision of their accompanying adults at all times. Under no circumstances, should children be allowed to run around inside the vessel or on the outer decks or lean over balustrades. Safety is our #1 priority and it is the obligation of the parents/guardians to uphold the safety of the children cruising with them. It is extremely important for parents/guardians to ensure that their guests below the age of 16 are always well behaved, so as not to impact the enjoyment of any other guests onboard.
Odd number bookings (e.g.1, 3, 5, 7 guests) may be subject to shared tables
