Showboat Reviews

  • The whole experience was excellent and we really enjoyed it, however the only thing we felt was lacking was a build up to the fireworks. It would have been really good to have someone on deck to inform the passengers of the impending fireworks to build a little bit more of an atmosphere. We felt that the fireworks just happened and noted that many people missed the beginning as had not realised the time. Other than that a great experience. Thank you!

  • A great day was had by our party of 3 and by our other table guests of 5 all johnsons but no relation. thanks to captain, crew and chef + staff for our xmas lunch cruise on showboat. I picked this boat and lunch for our family of 3 as linda my wife is very ill, she made it through ok but could not eat much, the orange juice and moscato was a good choice. thanks to you all for this special memory which we will all cherish.

  • It was great. My wife and I together with my brother in law and his wife truly enjoyed the experience. The Captain positioned the craft in the right spot to watch an spectacular firework display. The show onboard was a beautiful experience and the cast second to none. Congratulations on a wonderful night on the harbour.

  • I could not speak highly enough of every aspect of this cruise. I bought it for my family and we all had an amazing day. The food and service were excellent, boarding could not have been easier and more efficient and allowing my grand children the chance to join the captain was tremendous. Furthermore, your efficiency and co operation when I requested a refund for some family members who were unable to attend was awesome. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful experience for us!

  • We have cruised on the Boxing Day showboat cruise for the last 4-5 years and have enjoyed it every year and this year was no exception . We would definitely recommend this cruise . Food , drinks and service was excellent and we had such a relaxing and fun day. Many thanks showboat. See you next year.

  • An enjoyable evening. Good value for money. I think we expected the show to start a little earlier but it wasn’t a big problem and it was enjoyable. The bathroom facilities could use a little attention and perhaps a refresh. On the whole a pleasant and fun evening enjoyed on Valentines Day.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the cruise. It was a great way to see Vivid without having to battle the crowds. The show was great, the food delicious and the staff attentive and friendly. Thank you for a great night.
