5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Great evening enjoyed by all of us! I was apprehensive about arranging this for my daughter's 18th birthday, but she lived for music she thoroughly enjoyed the evening. From the moment we stepped on board, you could tell that this venue ran like a well oiled machine - entrees waiting for us, then some table magic, then time to stroll the outer decks before dinner and the show and then more time to stroll the decks to enjoy the beautiful harbour at night. The food was excellent, all three courses.
I was also concerned about the weather - as we went on 19 July, in the middle of winter, and it was one of Sydneys coldest nights, with very strong, cold wind blowing and some light showers. Well at NO time did the inclement weather affect our experience. Warm inside, (in fact one wouldn't even know what the weather was like outside unless you went out there) and then strolling the decks (all three levels have walk around decks) it was magic. Thanks Sydney Showboats for a great evening - we'll be surely recommending you!
