BharatRatan_S, May 2022
Nice dinner cruise with views. The only bad was we were on the top deck which wasn’t warm enough in cold weather and didn’t have a clear canopy for better visibility.
PenMcEncroe, May 2022
Very good. The food was great. In winter would prefer to be downstairs so you can see through the windows. Will go back in summertime. Love Melbourne
Lovely Cruise

The Food was so delicious. Lamb was so good, falling off the bone. A few of the waiters that served us was friendly and the drinks were coming, on point. My mothers and sisters definitely had a great night. Just needed some music.

Travelling with my sister from Darwin who I only see about once per year. We saw a man on board who reminded us of our uncle and he ended up bombing our sister photo!

Cruise along the Yarra
Carol_G, Mar 2022
Well organised and the dinner was great. Towards the end of the river the sights were a little disappointing as you were just looking at reeds. Would have been better to see more if the lights of the city all the way along. Great service though and the food was good.
