Guest Review

This was much better than I expected the dinner was great and filled us up. Show was good and the way the ship went around harbour gave you heaps of time to take photos at iconic spots. Well thought out. You might want to add Mocktails to the drinks menu as my partner likes non-alcoholic drinks. Also tea/coffee after dinner might be a nice touch.

We had an amazing evening, everything is perfect. The show boat so wonderful We’ll come back in a near future. Thank you so very much.

We found the food and show were fantastic and enjoyed every bit of our night.

The show was great and food is excellent.The captain parked the boat with precision had a chat at the end Seemed to be friendly and easy to talk with as were the rest of the staff. We will definitely came again.

The entire experience was exceptional. The food was amazing, the show was spectacular, but honestly, I’m in hospitality, and your service staff is the best I’ve ever seen. We all had the most fantastic night, and this cruise will be our first choice forevermore.
