We booked a dinner cruise to celebrate a birthday occasion. The service was amazing and accommodating. The buffet and desserts were delicious. The boat ride was smooth and enjoyable and the upper deck has a stunning view of the river. Would definitely recommend.

It was a surprise Father's Day dinner for my husband and son
Mareta Joe-Barbarich 2 weeks ago

It was a surprise Father's Day dinner for my husband and son. And it was AMAZING. The entertainment was fantastic. The staff n food on point the view outside epic, stunning. The photos are priceless. The cheap carpark great value. Will be back soon.

Amazing in every way
Keri Waghorn 9 months ago

Amazing in every way! The staff were friendly and the entertainment was great. The views of course were unforgettable. Me and my partner came from London and landed the same day as the cruise, so were hoping the queues and waiting time were minimal. As soon as we arrived to collect our tickets, the process was so smooth and quick from start to finish. Can’t fault a thing! Would definitely recommend.

This was a good experience in Brisbane with a very friendly team who want to make sure you have the best cruise
Gill Lockhart 9 months ago

This was a good experience in Brisbane with a very friendly team who want to make sure you have the best cruise. We were lucky enough to get a window seat which was great but also thankful for as it gets quite hot on the boat! It’s an aging vessel which is getting a bit rough around the edges but is still fit for purpose and doesn’t take away from the experience. The buffet food was better than average for boat dinner cruises like this and was available for a good period of time to help yourself. Seating was quite close to each other, so if you are looking for intimacy, it would be worth upgrading. It’s reasonable value for money but there isn’t much competition for cruises like this on the Brisbane River. Oh, and no smoking onboard!!

Wonderful experience
Tahnia Niebling 1 year 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 1 year 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.

We had such a great time on the cruise
Purinisese Ah Tune 2 years ago

We had such a great time on the cruise, the MC was great, awesome easy listening music, beautiful view and buffet was lovely. Highly recommend for families.

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.
