Very unhappy

We were placed on the upper level and it look horrible with plastic cover that u cant see the view. I was embarrassed that it looked so tacky. The upper should be used during winter when u cant open the plastic cover.

Honestly probably the highlight of the trip we were on. The food was good, could have maybe given us more options but I understand it’s hard on a cruise. The staff were super attentive and weren’t shy of offering more drinks, so if you like your alcohol you’ll love this cruise haha. Overall definitely worth the money and more.
Great experience

We loved our experience. The food was amazing, and the unlimited drinks were a highlight! The waitstaff did that thing where they check on you every few minutes, which meant we were taken very good care of and our glasses were never empty.

Nice dinner cruise with views. The only bad was we were on the top deck which wasn’t warm enough in cold weather and didn’t have a clear canopy for better visibility.

Very good. The food was great. In winter would prefer to be downstairs so you can see through the windows. Will go back in summertime. Love Melbourne
Lovely Cruise
