"I originally booked the dinner cruise but was transferred to the showboat cruise. I’m so glad we were! We thoroughly enjoyed the showboat experience! I was a dance mum for 25 years and my daughter a dancer and dance teacher, so we loved the show and fully appreciated the performers skill, effort and how hard some of the routines were to do normally let alone on a moving ship!! We were on the cruise to celebrate a successful wedding dress shopping trip and this experience finished it beautifully."


"We were extremely happy overall and will be delighted to tell friends and visit the boat again for another great evening."


"The only thing I would suggest is for dessert to be 2 options more generally liked - coffee is not a flavour our group enjoys so one of us missed out on eating dessert. Otherwise everything else was fantastic!"

Covid put an end to this date, you had glacially given us a refund. We had also booked accommodation at The Star which we had to give a future date for, that is why we chose to come last weekend, we finally completed the whole weekend as it was originally intended to be. Thank you again for wonderful memories great service"

Will do this again if we ever find ourselves with a spare night in Sydney (we are from interstate)."
