Wonderful experience
Tahnia Niebling 3 months ago

Wonderful experience! The boat and the views were great, Food was really good and I have to say that the staff on board were exceptional very rare to get such good service anymore so they made the experience so much more wonderful! Only negative would be that something more fun like a DJ or band that can get people up from their tables to dance and let loose a bit. But apart from that, the entertainer they had was still quite enjoyable.

Terrible experience
Azmeeri Noor 7 months ago

Terrible experience. We had the Brisbane river dinner cruise booked for a Thursday night. But a series of unfortunate events happened and we arrived at the pier 5 min late. We did contact them and said we were just 5 min away but they could not wait 5 min for us. They even couldn't arrange anything else for us. I don't know if I am wrong but when you don't have any destination and it is just a recreational cruise of 2 hrs - not waiting for 5 min for a group of 7 passengers with kids visiting interstate is just inhumane. Not the right way to make money in business for sure. Feeling dejected and very very disheartened.

The cruise was not bad
Joy 2 years ago

The cruise was not bad. Food was nice but varieties on offer could have been better. The crews on board were attentive and friendly.

Heron Island was magical - lying in bed
Carmelita Van Deventer 2 years ago

Heron Island was magical - lying in bed, watching the full moon rise above the waves breaking over the edge of the coral cay in high tide from the Point Suite. Exposure to the Great Barrier Reef was amazing. With pristine coral of numerous types and formations, schools of various fish, turtles, sting rays and sharks with expert commentary all viewed from a glass bottom boat, snorkeling (my husband)or scuba diving, Turtle hatching, visiting birds raising their young, all contributed to the opportunity of a lifetime. Thank you to the great staff.

The trip was good overall and the show was great
Alvaro Martinez 3 years ago

The trip was good overall and the show was great, unfortunately I felt they removed the food too fast and didn't get a chance to fully enjoy the all you can eat buffet. The taste of the food is excellent and the selection is broad.

I and my family had a great night
Lydia 4 years ago

I and my family had a great night. The host and the carnival dancers were very entertaining. The food was plenty in quantity. Lots of salad varieties, some cold cuts, mussels in cream, steamed broccoli, rice and potato, boiled shrimp and crabs. Couldn't say it was great in taste though. We had another private party in the upper deck so we were limited to lower deck only. Might be nice if we could stroll on upper deck. The river view was great!
