Great dinner cruise, facilities and staff.
Mar 2021
I recently travelled on the James Stirling for a dinner cruise in Perth.

The cruise went for about three hours and went as far as Fremantle before turning around. The cruise was thoroughly enjoyable on a warm clear night. Plenty of food and local beer, wine and soft drinks were included.

The scenery along the Swan River is beautiful at night.

Worth a look when visiting Perth.

Cheers, Paul

Christmas Function Fun
Dec 2019 • Business
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

Sail away
Feb 2020
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.

Dinner Cruise Swan River
Jan 2020
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

Totally missold cruise
Dec 2019 • Couples
I purchased this cruise with it saying it would be a romantic night on swan river with live piano music and taking in the perth skyline.

What I got was a Christmas party full of drunks with an 80s style disco.

The staff were very apologetic as they saw what I was told the cruise was but said it isn't what I was expecting.

I am very unhappy at this and am expecting a full refund.

Please advise how I can get this asap.

Not worth the money
Firstly, if you want to see what’s on the banks of the river then do a daytime cruise. The sun set and it was just eating dinner on a boat. You couldn’t see much.
Secondly, we were allocated to our seat which was lovely and near a window but we were one of the last tables to be asked to go to the buffet and there were no prawns and mussels left. The other things were still there but for the money you pay, you would expect to get at least a couple of prawns. The beer selection on the standard package wasn’t the best. We felt that they were understaffed as they were run off their feet but the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Hello Rebecca S, Thank you for your feedback on the our recent Perth Swan River Dinner Cruise. We agree, it is lovely to watch sunset from the water, and we are pleased to hear that you were happy with your table seating near the window. I am sorry that the prawns and mussels were all eaten before you had a chance to visit the buffet - this is very unusual, we we usually have more than enough food and selection available on our buffet cruises. It's great to hear that the staff were friendly - and we hope that maybe one day we will have the opportunity to welcome you back on board with us sometime again in the future! Kind regards, Kat
