We could here the safety procedures. Should be over microphone. As a lot of elderly could here. And people standing up also. We were the last table to go up and eat. Near nothing there was very poor. I had to say something to the girls. To fill bowls up. As some people had been up two to three times, before our first serve. So wrong. Then get told to go sit down. Until hot dishes are ready. We will let you know. Then no sunset. Disappointing. I booked this for my 50 th with husband. Very upset about it. All. Think upstairs. Would of been nicer. With platter. And getting served. Looked great upstairs. Over all very disappointed
Well worth it.

Funny and informative. Great food. Great view. Great music. You’ll learn a so much about Darwin as you sip a glass or two and have a laugh on the top deck. Then head downstairs for a really good buffet dinner.

Sunset and views of Darwin Beautiful skies Lovely Waiter Guido Good food and ambience Lovely harbour One word of advice , PA system wasn’t working properly so not everyone could hear the speaker.

My husband and I had an amazing time! Delicious food, friendly staff and amazing sunset views. A MUST DO if you’re in Darwin.
Felt like Viator didn’t care
Lachlan_H, Aug 2022
Was let down with custom service, clearly didn’t care about my circumstances, wouldn’t recommend Viator. I will be going on cruise in the future and other little trips but will avoid any further bookings through Viator

Perfect cruise on 8 September 2022 to end my four night stay in Darwin lovely dinner and a very sweet, thoughtful and kind lady especially stopped by my table peeled by prawns and cut up my chicken because I have a broken right wrist and I am right handed. Thankyou so much if you are the lovely lady who helped me and you are reading this:) Staff were very helpful too thankyou. Judith
Darwin sunset dinner cruise

The dinner was very nice. The views from the boat were incredible. The commentary was very informative. Very pleasant evening.
Very little cruising
Felicity_S, Aug 2022
The cruise was very short we didn’t see much of Darwin and we just sat moored for 1-1/2 hours and then travelled very slowly back to dock.
A magical last night in Darwin
kellykgreen, Aug 2022
We had the most wonderful evening on this sunset cruise. It was a magical way to spend our last night in Darwin. The meals were fantastic and they ensured that as non seafood eaters that our needs were met and there were plenty of options for us. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this cruise to visitors to Darwin.
A little disappointing
jennifer_m, Aug 2022
A little disappointing Too long, first hour was interesting as we could see Darwin from the harbour but the cruise itself was far too long.
Worth while doing
Brett_D, July 2022
Good food, nice views and good commentary. Enjoyable cruise with friendly staff. Would recommend to do when your in Darwin
Good value cruise
BARBARA_U, July 2022
The excellent service. Quality of food and drinks. We were on the top deck which I recommend for the views. We were surprised that we had table service for the duration so we didn’t have to trek down steps to the bar. A lovely night.
