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 12 months 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.

It was a surprise Father's Day dinner for my husband and son
Mareta Joe-Barbarich 1 year 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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.
