Very enjoyable evening, should have taken a warmer coat. Was recommended to pre-purchase drinks vouchers, implied that no cash was taken on board, this wasn't so. The drinks that we had cost us more in vouchers than it would have done if we had paid on board.

Great Food and Music, eat to much though ! Buy tokens at the ticket counter if you want Alcohol or Soft Drinks.

First trip to Brisbane and thought this would be a great idea to meet up with family friends for a nice night on the river... Turns out you couldn't have a conversation due to the hens party on the cruise... It could be the 'oldie' coming out in me, but for anyone who was trying to enjoy the evening wouldn't have due to the excessive amount of noise from the said party. And whilst I'm all for everyone having a good time, I think the company should give paying customers options to move at least to the second floor which was not in use at all so you could have a decent conversation. Whilst you can walk about the boat, and the man who was the entertainment for the evening had a great voice and did a good selection of songs, the rowdy women were an absolute turn off. Our family friends didn't truly enjoy themselves, and it was their first time on the cruise as well. We had to escape to the very top of the boat to have a decent conversation as we'd not seen each other for over a year. I wasn't overly impressed with the food and wonder why everyone seems to have issues with cooking steamed veg...they were very hard. I will admit the pasta was delicious, but I didn't think much of the dessert. Some of the crew were good, but I can't comment on service as we are not heavy drinkers and therefore did not require a lot of drink service from the crew. Everyone seemed happy except for the incident at the beginning when checking in where the man seemed really put out that we booked for 4 people but only 3 were written down on their list. And whilst the issue was resolved, he lacked professionalism during that bit which was not a good start at all. We will return to Brisbane, but would not return to the dinner cruise as we have done dinner cruises in Sydney and much prefer an a la carte menu on that cruise then buffet as we didn't find the buffet here overly impressive... I wouldn't recommend this at all...

Had a great time with the family celebrating my 70th birthday. Staff were very good. Would recommend this experience highly and fully intend to do it again next time I am in Brisbane.

On the night we could not use the top deck as they had a private party booked which meant this did not give us much room to move around. Food was excellent but could have done with more entertainment as we only had one person singing and no room to dance.

The cruise on the Brisbane River was just beautiful. The meal was excellent and the views of Brisbane at night were spectacular. Would definitely recommend and will be going again!

We booked the paddle steamer because we only had 1 night in Brisbane. But was disappointed because
it didn't go that night so we had to go on another boat. Not what we expected. We had just finished a 16 day cruise
so the boa twasn't what we wanted. It was the experience of the Paddle Steamer.

The food was amazing. the place was crowded which is a good thing, but they should've opened up the second floor, because the tables are rather close to each other.

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise - met new people and the staff were really great and also very discreet. The food was average and perhaps could be a little better, however great fun.

Nice evening however not how the trip was originally advertised. We were sold a 3 course dinner with live jazz band entertainment while cruising the river. However we were greeted with a dinner buffet and karaoke cabaret style singer. Management had changed since booking. Disappointing.
