Sydney Showboat Reviews
More Than Just A Great Show May 02, 2008
I (post) celebrated my birthday on board one of the Sydney Harbour's most unique attractions- the Sydney Showboat Dinner Cruise and Show!
The Sydney Showboat is an authentic paddle-wheeler, reminiscent of colonial Australia, that has received an interior facelift to make for a classy and comfortable float around the Sydney's breathtaking harbour. On board, you are given the privelege to see, and of course capture with your camera, the other angles of the equally enchanting and famous Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge while the boat sails the enchanting Sydney Harbour.
As expected, the dinner experience was excellent, too. We had Grilled Lobster and Prime Veal Cutlet which i am sure, was prepared on board to ensure their freshness. A great taste of Sydney's fine seafoods!
The highlight, of course, was the live entertainment from the sequined and feathered ladies of the Australian Showgirls. The fanciful and extravagant dance routines that emerged from the cabarets of Paris in the late 19th century are resurrected by a troupe of four Aussie showgirls and single dancing hunk, accompanied by a gorgeous young diva, with vibrant costumes and energetic jigs. They also exhibited some popular dances from selected countries such as India, Japan, Korea and USA.
The dinner cruise costs USD125, exclusive of beverage. A regular fruit juice of soda costs about USD10 while a glass of wine is about USD15.
So if you also happen to be in Sydney to celebrate a special event, or just to experience great moments at the acclaimed world's most beautiful harbour city, then jump on board the Sydney Showboat for a dinner cruise and live entertainment sure to bedazzle you well into the night!
