Went on the cruise with my elderly parents and adult daughter. Cruise was amazing. Great service. Great food. Mum needs a wheelchair for part of the time, and they were very helpful on getting us on and off the boat.

We were very much looking forward to this cruise, and opted for the buffet dinner against my better judgement. Firstly I will say the staff, (for the most part) were fantastic.. the boat ride its self was lacklustre being that we couldn’t hear the commentary and the Windows

We enjoyed the cruise however the commentary was too rushed with too much detail. Just wanted him to draw breath but talked non stop until his spiel was over. Needed time to see what he was talking about. Stopped listening.. Some nice background music would have been enjoyable

Took a couple of Interstate friends for a sunset cruise and found it a little disappointing. The audio was hard to hear and kept cutting out. Have been on another one which was of better value.

I did the sunset cruise with buffet dinner. The staff were excellent and humorous. The views were spectacular, especially out on the front deck. I would ask to be seated there again. The staff were very attentive to our groups dietary requirements and provided food options
