This was the first time I had been on the Blues Cruise. I would highly recommend it to lovers of blues, soul, boogie and rockabilly. The DJ on the lower deck had everyone enjoying the records and on the upper deck there were two musical...More

Pre cruise email queries (about parking, and merging two bookings at same table) were dealt with promptly and pleasantly. Appreciated the reminder emails from both Red Balloon and Lady Cutler - there was certainly no chance of forgetting the event (booking was made months ago)....More

We looked for the potential of a night out with a difference and found it with the Lady Cutler Burlesque show night cruise. It was a fun filled night with plenty of nibbles, drinks at bar prices and friendly staff

Questions & Answers
Hi Captain Jeff. Do you have an email I can contact you directly? I just have a query - moreso a plea 😭😩 I came on your awesome boat last September and had the best experience with a few of my girls (my previous review titled 'best night ever' - yes, it was that awesome!) Anyways, earlier this year I bought tickets with a good friend of mine coz I wanted her to see how awesome the lLady Cutler is and the burlesque show! That week leading up to the showboat event my dad had a severe stroke so it felt wrong going out and having a great time knowing my dad was in hospital. I called your receptionist hoping to have our tickets re-scheduled for the next show but they advised no - And she explained why and I understood. I understand that you guys are running a business, but due to unforeseen emergencies I was hoping to reschedule as we spent 200 on these tickets (including the drink packages). I'm in the process of ordering tickets for the Saturday show coming up (22 April) for the four of us - and if there is no chance at all that I can have these tickets rectified, is there any way at all that I can at least use the two drinking packages we purchased for this coming event? Or the purchased tickets? I can send the receipts of purchase - I just need an email address to send it to. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you and looking forward to next weeks boat cruise!

Geat idea, but every seat on the boat is good for NYE. We do not have formal seating and depends on how the Captain aligns the Lady on the night as to which side is more favoured.
