This was our very first high tea and the experience was delightful. We will certainly be doing this again. Wasn’t sure what to expect at first but it turned out to be a gorgeous day. The staff were very professional and very helpful and the food was delicious. Thank you all so much.
I booked this High Tea for my wife's birthday
David Howie 5 months ago

I booked this High Tea for my wife's birthday. The food itself was delicious & all you would expect from a High Tea, (that's where it ends). I had a phone call asking if this was a celebration & would I like it to be announced by the entertainer, (the answer was yes of course), I was also told there was a boat change (No biggy) So on the day I found we were in an enclosed vessel, (there should have been an option to change dates for the cruise), I got sick of waiting so got up to get my own drinks from the bar, during Birthday announcements my wife wasn't announced, the entertainment was substandard (we were bored by the end so were the people around us, Then the entertainer had the cheek to sarcastically make a comment about how noisy this cruise was). I will be asking for a guarantee that the Kookaburra Queen is the vessel being used in future. Quite disappointing all in all.

We had an absolutely amazing time. The staff were super friendly and offered an exceptional service. High tea was amazing, the nibbles and desserts along with champagne were delectable. The atmosphere was vibrant and onboard entertainment was delightful.
