An Elvis cruise around Sydney harbour on a picturesque day...... Perfect. Buffet lunch, standard affair - nothing to write home about. Elvis impersonator did a very good job involving the audience and evoking fun and laughter. Highly recommended if your oldies like Elvis!

since it was a surprise birthday for our friend josie, the boat’s crew did cooperate well. It was an outstanding success because of that. we enjoyed the Abba music live and a surprise star of the night was won by our group.
