Guests Reviews

The food was great, the view was wonderful and the show especially was absolutely breath taking. The cast and crew should be highly commended for putting on such a vibrant and spectacular performance and service. Thank you so much to the evident hard work and dedication of everyone on board. We couldn't be happier with our experience and are sure to return in the future.

Business meeting with an overseas client who loves boats and ocean. He had not seen our beautiful Sydney Harbour. The showboat had it all, great meal, entertainment along with great service and ambiance of the cruise. Excellent experience and night. Thank you to all, especially to Alex who was amazing and professional assisting me with the booking and providing us the best seats in on the boat. Thank you again a wonderful night.
