Disappointed that the dining area was not decorated at all.It was very dark so we can't really enjoy the view along the river (if any).

Food was average and salmon was overcooked.
Free flow of drinks though.

Won't recommend as a Must Try.

Thank Mandy A

The service, food and sights of the dinner cruise was well worth it. The only negative is that it was very cold inside the boat, which resulted in my companion and I catching a chill and we both now have a very bad cold/flu. It would be worth a heat pump being installed as the sides and roof are virtually all glass. Because it was so cold, the 3 hours was too long; if it had of been warm in the boat, then 3 hours would have been perfect. Only other disappointing thing was that we had to keep meeting up with the party boat to stock up their drinks.

We live in Melbourne but sadly rarely do things tourists do. Melbourne has so much to offer that we ignore. This is my new quest. We took a one hour docklands cruise and found it excellent. It gave a whole new perspective of the docklands and surrounding areas, exposing bars restaurants and areas we did not know existed. It was a very good price as we booked on line. I considered a marking of 3 but decided on a 4 for the new knowledge.
Downsides an old boat but worse very dirty, no cleaning between cruises, rubbish left everywhere. People should take it with them but again nothing to run around with a rubbish bag and cloth between cruises. The captain and mate didn’t want to be there, they really needed to grow a personality and sense of humour.
The boats offer free tea and coffee and have toilet facilities but there is nothing else so if you need nibbles or a drink take it with you.
Otherwise easy to get to quite comfortable and informative.
