      Highlight of visit to Gold Coast
      This is an amazing experience. Highly recommend. Be sure to book the upper level outside as the views cannot be beat as you sail down South Port eating dinner. Staff is very professional and friendly and the dinner buffet was delicious and plenty. There was a singer on our dinner cruise and she was excellent. Really glad we booked this on our trip to the Gold Coast. It was a highlight of our visit.

      Enjoyable views
      It was an enjoyable evening. The weather was iffy so there was only enclosed dining, however we were allowed to go up to the top deck to enjoy the views and take photos. The food was plentiful and tasty. Since this tour does not leave the inner "broadwater" area, the view is limited and repetitive.

      Amazing experience. Visiting from Adelaide for a special birthday celebration. Food was great quality, staff were genuinely lovely and the male waiter explained to my husband how to prepare and eat the tiger prawns properly. Lovely atmosphere and a great night.

      Prior warning re film crew would have been good.
      Food was great, vies were great, entertainment great, captain great, staff great. Unfortunately we had to put up with some film crew filming some 2nd rate Australian Caravan show ( What's up Down under) whilst we were trying to take in the views and enjoy the cruise. Unfortunately the host and film crew took up all the good spots and we couldn't access or take photos/make noise as they were filming.

      Sea world cruise food allergies
      Good trip nice sights but over priced on drinks like selling a $8.99 bottle of wine for $49 and if you have food allergies watch out staff have no idea about cross contamination will not go again and if you have food allergies don’t trust them.

      Night Out
      My partner and I did the Dinner Cruise last Tuesday & had a fantastic night. The food & service was great & the entertainment an added bonus. It was so nice seeing everything at night from a boat. We highly recommend Seaworld Cruises. Great value for money for a 2.5 hour cruise with lovely fresh seafood & lot's more to choose from you won't leave hungry.

    Had Holiday dollar voucher. Was told we had to spend $200 to get$100 off for voucher.
    WE noticed the cheaper weekday cruise price was not available with the voucher Also the seniors price not available with voucher
    Is this not rorting the taxpayer and the buyer?
    Had to buy drink package which we did not want, then we were told by another passenger they dids not have to do this AND they had $40 left on voucher to spend later?

    Cruise up the canals & broadwater was nice, and had a lovely all-you-can-eat Seafood Buffet, that also came with Chicken, Ham & assorted Salads. Even though we did enjoy our cruise, we were expecting more in the way of commentary after reading previous reviews about how good the commentary was? There was nothing wrong with what was said, just was expecting more. It was a nice way to eat a fresh seafood lunch anyway and would recommend if this is what you are looking for. Bar on board to make your own purchases and bathroom facilities. All staff were very friendly with good service at the tables.

    The waiting staff, in particular Ezebella, were great. Buffet seafood offering was fine however with 70 people on the craft lower deck and masks being mandatory (incl proof of vaccinations) it needs to be enforced in a buffet scenario and it was not. With people going up to the buffet maskless it’s a turn off and inappropriate. May I suggest individual or table grazing platter options.The dessert option was offered late into the cruise and was basic, even one more choice would have been better served.
    The Captain was knowledgeable however due to the noise of people talking over him it was difficult at times to catch his comments.
    Worth a shot if you’re keen on a two hour glide on the beautiful GC waterways perhaps think twice about the buffet unless the mask wearing is enforced.

    Probably the best $79 you’ll spend on a seafood buffet coupled with a cruise .. 2 hours of pure relaxation .. really well done and a very professional tour. Staff were faultless and so was the food .. The boat is great and not over crowded. Dining inside in aircon comfort .. full windows and views on all sides .. afterwards you stroll upstairs with a beautiful roof top decking and seating. Highly recommend

    I was chosen to receive the Gold Coast Holiday Dollars and after much looking at the things on offer, my husband and I chose this cruise. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. The prawns and Mussels were really fresh. The ham was so nice (like eating a Christmas ham) I didn't have any chicken but it looked nice, The coleslaw was one of the nicest I have tasted in a long time, there was also a salad and a pasta salad. Fruit on offer as well and dessert was pavlova. The cruise was relaxing and again the crew were friendly, Nothing was too much and they really looked like they enjoyed their jobs. June interacted with a lot of the guest. If Covid doesn't upset plans for my sister in law to come up here from Tasmania in October we will take her on this cruise.

    In the morning, we went to Seaworld and spent a couple hours there. We met lovely Mei who told us all about the lunch cruise.
    Straight from Seaworld, we went to the lunch cruise where we were greeted by lovely Nathan, Zoe and George.
    The friendly, generous staff made the cruise a wonderful experience.
    The food was lovely, healthy and fresh although it would have been nicer if the chicken and pasta were at room temp, not fridge cold, and perhaps a second dessert option for those who dont like the pavlova.
    It was great that you could help yourself for a second serve of food.
    Everything was simple and clean.
    The cruise itself was lovely overlooking the beautiful scenic water and homes while you are eating.
    We went with our two kids 7yrs and older.
    Thankyou to Nathan who was so kind and helpful, and Zoe too.
    Thankyou once again Nathan.

    We had the best day. The 2hr cruise, staff and food were all excellent. The food was delicious and as exactly as described on the website, plenty of prawns, chicken, ham of the bone, plus more choices. The boat was roomy, had a licensed full bar, with cocktails, and the upper completely open deck was great, with tables and lounge chairs to relax on and take in the view. It helped that we had perfect weather. I would highly recommend this lunch cruise.

    Good morning, thank you for this fantastic 5-star review of your experience aboard our Buffet Lunch Sightseeing Cruise. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the tasty tropical buffet lunch and took advantage of the bar and cocktails!

    I almost missed this Buffet Lunch Cruise by Sea World Cruises because my wife and I forgot about time while busy packing for early flight the following morning. I dropped off my wife near the cruise departure point and drove to the carpark about 900km away. I was extremely lucky that I found a parking lot immediately although I saw 3 other cars circling the car park. The buffet, especially the prawns, was excellent and the views, especially from the top deck, during the cruise was good. See photos. My wife and I enjoyed the Buffet Lunch Cruise very much. An unforgettable experience in more ways than one.

    What an excellent day out. Initially we were a bit dissapointed as we booked an outdoor table - only to find that they had positioned us at the back of the boat (stern) not up the top (as they only had three umbrellas). However, it actually worked out great for the kids (9 & 11) a they could go backwards and forwards to the buffet and we had handy access to the bar. Our cruise was a smaller group so we could easily sit upstairs and take in the beautiful views as well - but also pop back downstairs to get some shade when it got too hot. The buffet was delicious, comprising good healthy food and also a desert. Was well worth the cost, 2 hour cruise, buffet and a licensed bar to purchase drinks from.
