It was wonderful to be out on the water, seeing new places. The staff kept us informed during the cruise of things to watch for as we travelled. Safety of the passengers was a very high priority! Nothing was too much for the staff. They were very capable, friendly and very knowledgeable. I am looking forward to doing the cruise to St Helena Island- I am going to ask my family if we can do it together to celebrate my birthday and Mother’s Day in May.

I just recently held my 21st on the lady Brisbane boat through Brisbane cruises and WOW it was a night to remember. The crew were so accommodating to all of our needs, they set up the boat just as I needed. They were there for any issues we had and were so friendly! The boat itself was perfectly set out, with 4 different main areas, it was so spacious and has been kept in an excellent condition. I can not recommend the lady Brisbane enough! I did hours of research for a Brisbane river cruise and this one stood out the most. The vibe of being with all of your friends and family on the river is something everyone has to experience. Thankyou so much!!!

Fabulous feedback, thanks Zoe. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family and friends on board the Lady Brisbane. It's terrific when our passengers love the Lady Brisbane as much as we do. Our crew really do try hard to make sure all of our passengers enjoy their special celebrations, so is really nice when that is appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'll be passing on your comments to our office and boat crew - they'll be thrilled.

We went for a cruise on the Lady Brisbane and found the captain very rude and insulting. He even abused boating people as he passed boats on Gold Coast chanels. We were very unimpressed. We would recomend using another cruise company.

What a great way to spend a Sunday! Our group of Brisbane Bushwalkers had a very relaxing and enjoyable cruise to St Helena Island. Departure from Hamilton Northshore Pontoon was easy to access with a large free parking space next to Eat Street, plus opportunity for a good coffee at the Northshore Riverside Cafe while waiting to board. Once on board, the crew were friendly and lighthearted, the food was excellent and once we arrived, the history walk and talk was interesting and fun. James did a great job keeping us informed and entertained!

Four of us (2 couples) booked the Lady Brisbane for a relaxed 3 hour Christmas Day lunch cruise along the Brisbane River, and it was an excellent choice. We were welcomed aboard by the friendly crew and directed to our table for 4 on the upper deck, allocated so there was no scrambling for seats. Once we were underway, right on time at 11.30, after the mandatory safety announcement, we were advised that the bar was open for beer, wine, soft drinks and water (all included). Again there was no rush, everyone was in a happy, friendly and relaxed mood. It was nice to be recognised and welcomed back by the young barman from an earlier trip from the Gold Coast to Brisbane. The buffet lunch was announced and we took our selection from several salads, big delicious prawns, crab, oysters, cold chicken, ham, turkey and fresh bread rolls. Everyone was welcomed for seconds (or more!). Then we had a choice of mini-pavlovas with fruit and cream, cheesecake, and plum pudding with thick creamy custard. There was plenty for all, and nobody overindulged with either food or drink. Staff chatted to every table and it was a great day. We thoroughly recommend this day cruise, (on any day) and made Christmas Day hassle free and a real pleasure. The Lady Brisbane is a comfortable if elderly lady, she makes no pretensions to luxury, but is clean and airy, and offers a relaxing day on the waters of the Brisbane River. We will be happy to book again. Not expensive, it offers excellent value. Thank you Brisbane Cruises.
