It was an amazing experience the staff were very friendly. I went with my family and 2 year old twin toddlers and everyone loved it. The only suggestion is to make food friendly for dietary requirement people too. As most of the food items were either non-veg or were not halal friendly.
A lovely and romantic cruise accompanied by friendly staff and delicious food and beverages.
Udur Intan 6 months ago

We had a lovely and fun time; the staff showed a high level of hospitality though some of them still needed experience in hospitality. There were many options for the food and cater for vegetarian as well; live music was fun, great singer though there were two songs sang that didn't match with the happy and fun atmosphere, have many options for a drink and overall was a fun and lovely experience. We will try the lunch cruise next month.

Food was just ok, staff were good but they could have improved food.
Farah Ibrar 1 year ago

Overall it was a nice experience but I wasn’t quite happy with the food it could have been better. There was only 1 chicken dish so the halal eaters had only 1 option to eat and second was pasta. Salad was way too salty and there was no option for kids either.

AMAZING!! Highly recommended for all to try, you will not be disappointed.
Katerina Chase 1 year ago

It was such an amazing night on the water. The staff are very accommodating and made sure we were well taken care of. The food was divine with buffet meals. We got the ultimate drinks package which was definitely worth the extra $$. The stunning views just topped it all off. Highly recommended Kookaburra Showboat Tours.

Awesome view of the city’s riverside during the night. We’ve enjoyed the variety of great food. Our kids love it! We enjoyed the singer/emcee. We will definitely be going to come back and do it again. Cheers Brisbane City Lights Dinner Cruise! See you again soon.

I booked this dinner cruise for my company party
Soheil Taherian 3 years ago

I booked this dinner cruise for my company party, including their family members. The cruise dinner was great, the dinner buffer was good with a variety of food to choose from. Then we had music on board, my little daughter loved it and was dancing around with everyone. Would love to go on it again.

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.
