Wonderful cruise with great entertainment food and wine . Staff friendly and helpful. Great memories captured by the photographer

Sharon

I appreciated the attention to my gluten free requests.

Jeff

Excellent dancers

aisling

Overall we thought it was very good value for money with cruise, dinner and drinks included. It was even better when our table was right up near the stage and near a window. Have already recommended it to others.

John

Fantastic night for our 21st Wedding Anniversary. *Ashlee (performer) met us at the check in gate as we were 1st in line and was so welcoming, easy to chat to and down to earth. Her happy demeanour set the tone for an awesome night overall with great service, nice meals and fantastic/fun entertainment. Definitely recommend the dinner/show. *Only criticism is there should be time for photos b4/after with performers as this was the only downer as photos set the scene and tell a thousand words. AA+
