Really enjoyed our evening! From the welcome to the food to the great service by the staff.

We booked this river cruise for the first time and we’re not disappointed.The food was great with great choices .All the staff were very good and helpful. It got dark quite quick so would have liked to seen more of the river sites, however the lights of the Cairns marine were very pretty! Maybe a slightly earlier start may be beneficial. Outside the boat on the deck was a bit dark, maybe would be good for some extra lighting to avoid accidents on steps etc. Overall, we would highly recommend this experience and great value for money. We will definitely go again on our next visit to Cairns.

Fabulous, relaxing. Recommended for adults of all ages.

Friendly and welcoming staff. Captain had a great sense of humour. The food was amazing with a great selection of delicious food. Relaxing cruise with terrific views. Added bonus on the night we sailed was that there was a cruise liner docked, that the captain took us up close to. Well recommended.

Fun night with music and good food. Staff were accomodating.

Lovely crew who made it a special night. Buffet food was tasty with oysters, prawns and mango pavlova. Ship was spacious with plenty of seats. Enjoyed the views of Cairns Harbour. Overall a very amazing experience and I would recommend it. Take extra cash for delicious cocktails.
