Review - Rivers Restaurant Cruises - 80s Cabaret Cruise
The best way to describe the vibe of reliving 80’s music dancing with a live band, whilst cruising along the Yarra and out into Melbourne’s twinkling bays for 3 ½ hours featuring a wonderful 3 course silver service dinner, dressed in 80’s colourful fashion, would be a floating ‘Love Shack’ itself.
Seated amongst the odd Madonna, heavy rock dudes and avid moonwalkers, once our luxury vessel departed Docklands and Captain Keith Rankin’s welcoming speech was delivered, it wasn’t long until “everybody was movin' and everybody was groovin'…baby.”
Offering the highest standards in hospitality, we enjoyed our choice of beautifully presented ‘braised leek and Pontiac potato soup for entrée, lamb shank that was slowly cooked in red wine sauce served on a base of potato and cauliflower mash for our main affair (fresh salad on the side) and beautifully presented Vanilla Panna Cotta in chocolate shortcrust with fresh berry compote and double cream. Divine!
Our 80’s Saturday night Rivers Cruise was one of many cabaret or themed nights available selected Friday and Saturday evenings across the year – All in all, like the B52’s we’re coming back so, listen out for our “Bang bang on the door.”'
