We went for a special family event 50 years in Australia, $130.00 per head, the boat was very full with little room to move and very noisy. Our $130 included a 4 course meal with all drinks included and tea.coffee, chocolates and liquer and port. Entree 3 small dishes 1.2 prawns & noodles, 2. chilli vegi strips, 3. meat (duck) with lentils. Main - pork chop on sweet potato mash was very tasty, but no extra vegies on plate, dessert were small (suet style pastry) cakes with custard and berry & little chocolate mousse cake & small lemon meringue cake, on same plate 3 small thin pieces of cheese, water crackers, 3 dried apricots and a few nuts, this was shared by 4 adults, still trying to work out the 4 COURSES. Also included in the price of $130.00 was tea/coffee. chocolates and port/liquer we DID NOT receive this nor were we asked if we would like to have tea/coffee etc. When I approached a waiter and asked why we did not receive tea/coffee etc. he told me we didnt ask for it. I explained that this was part of our menu and was included in the price and it was not my job to ask it should have been bought to the table after the dessert was given. I feel that we were RIPPED OFF, it definately was not worth the money paid. The cruise was going round in circles for the 2 hours, the next hour we managed to go a little further, no commentary was given and we the heavy perspex blinds (which you needed to be sheltered from the cold wind) we could not see very much anyway. I have been now and would not bother going back or recommending this dinner cruise for the price!
