Guest Reviews
  • Best cruise my husband and I have been on. Thank you thank you for giving us best table upstairs and making my husbands 40th Great!! Only problem with drink service was just me, I had to ask for water 3 different waiters before I got any, rest was excellent.
  • The Show Boat, the staff, dancers, guest's and food, the Sydney night atmosphere, the whole experience was superb!! I took my Yr 12 daughter to celebrate her end of year. We both enjoyed being able to stand on the top deck watching the Sydney views of The Harbor Bridge, the Opera House etc. I was able to take some beautiful photos and I wish there was a way of uploading them to you. This was our first cruise and we have already recommended the Show Boat to our friends!! The costumes were outstanding as were the dancers. The waiters were very friendly, helpful and very polite, making each person feel like royalty!! The food was lovely which I could not fault. The Photographer was a pleasant surprise. My daughter & I took home a "Keep sake' of the night.
  • At the end of the night during the show all drinks were cleared up a little to early so next time please leave water on tables. Otherwise everything else was of high standard I will be recommending my experience. Thank you for a memorable night .
  • 100% recommended to everyone
