    It was a bit crowded, but the food was good. Could barely get into the seats at our table without asking others to move.Would have appreciated a bit more commentary on the sights ofMelbourne.

    Best cruise dinner we have ever been on and staff were fantastic and very friendly would differantly do this again

    The trip itself gives an excellent and different view of Melbourne, but what we thought made this a stand out experience was the attention to detail and friendly service provided by all the staff (including coping with my wife's dietary needs). Highly recommend

    Would thoroughly recommend the Spirit of Melbourne cruise. We were fortunate enough to be on board for the Valentine's Day cruise and had a wonderful time.

    All the crew offered 5 star service. The waiters attentive with the free flow drinks and the food was delicious. We had 4 courses - entree, main dessert and cheese platter- all beautifully presented.

    We enjoyed going out on deck between courses to admire the city skyline.

    Thank you Melbourne cruises for a memorable evening!

    The river boat dinner cruise was well organized and serviced. The food and drinks were well presented and tasty. The return part at night towards the city was awesome!
    The only glitch was that there were 2 young ladies dressed for a disco party drunk when entered and continued to get rowdy most of the time, killing the feel of a "romantic" dinner cruise. Maybe the crew should be careful who they let in....

    A lovely evening. We have done it both trips to Melbourne. Great food, staff and scenery. A must do!

  • 20-Jan-2020

    The spirit of Melbourne dinner cruise was a wonderful way to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The food and drink was excellent and so was the service. The only thing that would have made it 5 star would have been some entertainment with live music

  • 06-Jan-2020

    The vegetarian dinner was beautiful and the cruise was lots of fun.
    Looking forward to going again one day!
