      Finger food was 'on the cheap' in my opinion. At 470 for two people, they could have provided much better food. The staff however were friendly and helpful.

      It was fun!

      The food was excellent, just a shame that there were so few seats - very difficult to enjoy the seafood standing up and holding onto your plate. Far too many people crammed into such a small area. The staff and crew were fantastic, however we probably wouldn't recommend this expensive tour to future customers!

      Too many people buffet cleared away before I decided to eat Not worth the money. Not enough seats

    • 08-Jan-2014

      The boat was to crowed, you couldn't even get up on the deck and if you did you where so squashed in. you had to wait in a big que for a drink. The staff were wonderful, you couldn't fault them in any way. I want be going on this boat again but i will on another one that i seen. Just way to money people on there and everyone was saying the same thing..

      We had a great time. The boat isn't huge but once you get going you can meet people because there's so many people there and everyone's in high spirits because it's New Years! The food was good but everything was cold and it was awkward to eat with a knife and fork when there weren't enough available chairs to sit on. Would have been better with finger food. Great music to dance to, best views in Melbourne and security took care of people who were a bit too crazy! Great way to meet people as well.

      Hated being stuck on a boat for 4 hrs. I think you should be able to get off every hour. Very overpriced.

      Generally dissatisfied - the men were well and truly on the way to being drunk after the first hour, the music was too loud, the food was average but we had to eat with our plates on our knees, while a lot of people had to stand for most of then trip The mis-matched age group didn't help. Drunk males not sorted till end of trip.
