Excellent trip from beginning to end
Dec 2019
Our 1st trip from UK to Aus - prebooked this lunch in the Summer. We were concerned when looking at recent reviews about the Star that indicated a very poor rating - but needn't have worried as all was brilliant; staff (friendly and helpful), food (loads, fresh and tasty) and the boat itself may be old but was in good condition and clean. A wonderful first time cruise of the harbour with lots of excellent photo opportunities.
