Must do on the Swan, beautiful and tasty food and the atmosphere to suit . We would do again and again... My only issue was the one price for all, myself and a few others can't or dont drink alcohol or a few have had stomach surgery so having different package options would be nice as the price was a tad high just to have a coke and 1/4 of a meal.
But we will still be back.

The cruise was a nice way to "chill" having arrived in Perth earlier in the day.
Food was plentifull and tasty.
The DJ played some "golden oldies" which set the mood for a great night.
Of course on a night cruise you don't get to see much, but it was still a great night

AMAZING! I might be biased because I got engaged on this cruise BUT before that even happened it was already a great time. The staff were super friendly and helpful, very attentive and monitored when you needed more drinks. I enjoyed the buffet style, it was good to eat at your own pace and pick what you like. You could hear the background music without it being too loud or annoying. Great vibes all around, I would certainly recommend this experience to others. Big shout out to the DJ and our crew man Putu who really went above and beyond to make our night perfect and memorable. Thank you so much Captain Cook Cruises 😊

We were disappointed with this dinner cruise experience. Guests were invited up one table at a time to serve themselves the buffet dinner, but there was no communication about this, leaving many guests confused and pushing in, thinking they were going to miss out. The quality of food was substandard too.
The singer was WAY too loud from the second we stepped on the boat and only took a 5 minute break for the entire two and a half hour journey. You should be able to choose if you’re interested in the music, not have it forced upon you at arhat volume. Totally inappropriate for during the meal. Fine to turn it up after the meal.
There are as also no communication about being able to be outside between courses. Many guests went outside to escape the volume of the music.

The atmosphere was ok. The food was excellent but because we were sitting at the back of the boat, we were told 40mn after the food was served that we could go and help ourselves. 15mn later we heard an announcement to say the food was going to be cleared...So we had to rush and get some more from the buffet before we finish our first plate. There was no entertainement. We were expecting someone to sing a few songs and get the crowd going a bit like they do at the day time cruises. So think twice before you book a night cruise. Terry.

We have booked this cruise to welcome our guests from Sydney. We were all quite excited and looked forward to have a relaxing cruise with nice food. All was fine till the so called "entertainment" started. The music was so loud that we hardly could communicate with our guests without screaming to each other. After a while we just left our table and moved to the back of the boat to be able to have at least some civilized conversation. This cruise should be advertised as "disco with a dinner", so passengers will know what to expect.

We attended the cruise as part of our Christmas function which was over 3 weekends because of the swings we have - FIFO. The food was great and we had a really good bunch of crew to accommodate us. I actually broke my shoe and Lee was such a cool guy and helped out! The selection of drinks were okay. Some of us came slightly preloaded. After dinner we were able to go up on the top deck or to the back of the boat, so there was loads of room to chill out and relax and enjoy each other company. Cool trip, great food, wonderful crew with the wicked DJ x I recommend x

An evening on the Swan with a great smorgasboard. did get stuck into the prawns and mussels, and complimentary drinks. They even left a bottle of red and white at our table. After the meal a disco guy playing request so got up had a jive or three. Real value for money not to mention the sites of Perth at night as you cruise the river. A must do.

10 years anniversary. Staff very nice, accommodating and attentive, food very nice and plenty off, buffet did not run out of anything. Not gourmet food however full of taste and a nudge to the Mediterranean and Middle East. The beef cheeks exquisite.

Beautiful sunset to commence the cruise. The commentary on the Swan River and its surrounds was limited but good. Service was prompt. The staff were very amenable and efficient. The food and drink were abundant with a good variety of choices, including fresh king prawns, an expensive item. Supply was unlimited, and guests were invited back for seconds. The follow-up dessert choices were outstanding. There was a DJ onboard for follow on entertainment. A pleasant way to spend several hours relaxing.
