Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Melbourne Burlesque Showboat Cruise

Melbourne Burlesque Showboat Cruise

This memorable, adults-only burlesque cruise begins at Melbourne’s Docklands area, where you’ll board the vintage Melbourne Showboat. After serving as a ferryboat in the Sydney Harbor for decades, the vessel was relocated to Melbourne and renovated for a second act as a deluxe showboat. The captain will welcome you aboard with a free glass of sparkling wine to kick off the night. 

As the boat gently glides down the Yarra River, satisfy your cravings with passed trays of appetizers such as gourmet cheeses, shrimp cocktail and fresh sushi rolls. Beer, wine and cocktails are available for purchase at an onboard bar. Let loose on the main deck dance floor as a DJ spins upbeat tunes. 

When it’s time for the show, head to the upper deck’s spacious inside theater. Feast your eyes on the sequined, feathered finery of the female burlesque performers as they present hilarious and titillating cabaret acts. For an intimate theatrical experience, half of the passengers will enjoy the first burlesque show while the others drink, dance and mingle; then the groups will switch.

After the 1-hour show, return to the main desk to socialize and soak up romantic views of Melbourne’s nighttime skyline slipping by. Your cruise continues to the historic port of Williamstown at the mouth of the Yarra River, and then changes direction to head back upriver to Docklands, where you’ll disembark in the late evening.
