Australia Day Cruise Reviews

  • Fantastic cruise on Australia Day, highly recommend. Food was first class as was the service and the drinks package! The dance show was sensational, highly recommend this cruise and with the fireworks on the harbour for Australia Day you would not get any better. It was the perfect way to spend the evening in Sydney!

  • We were very happy with the food and service. We were on the Australia Day cruise during the day and were a bit disappointed that there wasn't any announcements when scheduled events were happening. We suggest that you either make announcements or place a copy of the programmed events on each table so that everyone is aware of what is happening on the harbour and what time/s. Thank you.

  • It was wonderful. A great way to spend Australia Day. We had a great table, fabulous,great service and food was lovely. Great value. We shall be back next year for sure.

  • Wonderful experience everything was to a very high standards of service friendly staff fabulous night out thank you for a wonderful night.

  • Visiting Sydney on Australia Day & wanted to go out on the Harbour to experience on the water with all the flotilla. It was a wonderful day & will certainly do it again when next visiting. The food was delicious & the staff extremely friendly & wonderful. Will highly recommend it to family & friends.

  • Fantastic celebrating Australia Day on the showboat with my family.

  • A wonderful night. Good food, good atmosphere. Could not see the show from where I was sitting.

  • The Cruise was chosen for our group of 11 as when booked on P&O Cruise from Brisbane we thought (as most of passengers) that we would be on the harbour. When found out we would be at Whites Bay Wharf we looked for something else. We had 6 intellectually disabled adults and they thoroughly enjoyed the day. Looking at doing same next year. Thank you for a wonderful day.
