Lovely evening Great value Crew were amazing and very professional Dinner was fantastic and the entertainment excellent
Great dinner cruise for any occasion
, Sep 2021
Staff were welcoming, service was great. Food was lovely and the MC/DJ was entertaining. Can't complain, it was a fabulous night with nice company and great music that got everyone up and dancing from young and old. It had been a while since I had been on a dinner cruise so I had done it before and will definitely do it again. Prices for kids, however, are a bit extreme.
Fun and food with beautiful scenic views.
, Aug 2021
Great selection of food with plenty for everyone. Lovely to watch the night lights of Perth glide by. Music and the dance floor was a lively finish to the evening.
Looks like a canteen no style.
, Aug 2021
Staff and DJ very friendly food was ok, buffet was not behind screens and served, not covid safe. The table and chairs was like being in a canteen. No room to move between tables. Needs some class, prefer to pay more and make it a great experience.

Good but can be improved
, Mar 2020
it was a good experience except that some of the staff looked like they jumped out of a washing basket. Boat and furniture could be upgraded too.
Great dinner cruise, basic but tasty...

Great dinner cruise, basic but tasty food and good music. Loved the night views of Perth.
We had a lot of fun on this cruise...

We had a lot of fun on this cruise. Food was pretty good but being Vegetarian I was somewhat limited. Desserts were bit of a disappointment. Service was great. Good friendly, attentive staff. Entertainment was great - dance floor with a DJ and good dancing music. Was nice being out on the river at night time. Main criticism - For the price I think it should go longer - a lot of money to be home by 10.30!!!
