Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unfortunately, 'Spirit of Darwin' cancelled our planned cruise only a few days out from our sailing (which was part of The Ghan & Darwin trip we had booked back in January). They offered us alternative sailings but these were before we arrived or after we left Darwin so useless to us - very disappointed. Even more confusing was the messages that kept confirming our sailing which had been cancelled???? Thankfully a different Company were able to accommodate us at the last minute and we had a wonderful sunset cruise.

The cruise was nice and the commentary was interesting and informative. We took the dinner cruise, which was suppost to have a buffet dinner. It was not a buffet in any sense of the word. We were allowed only one turn at the table. As well the plate provided was a lunch plate. I insisted on more prawns (4 in total) a small piece of chicken, a small amount of salad and some bread was all that would fit. And for dessert only one square of cake (was not permitted more) and fruit salad. Not worth the extra charge for dinner.

Nice leisurely cruise. No comp. Drink. Buffet was nice but surely it could be managed better than everyone queuing at the one time. A little thought to sort this would make all the difference.

Extremely disappointing!! We are here for a Hens night. Very, very poor value, for $80 per head. No drinks included at all. For 12 people, we received 2 very small plates of canapes between us all. Each plate would have been barely enough for 2 people. We are upstairs, where there is a bar however, this was closed & we had to go downstairs to buy a drink. Serving staff extremely miserable also. My sister is looking for a place to have her husbands 60th - it won't be here!

The captain gave excellent commentary but unfortunately there was a group of 7 people next to us who made so much noise we couldn’t hear a lot of it. The chairs are kitchen chairs and not very comfortable. Dinner was very ordinary. Only 2 prawns per person and some country caterer type salads which all looked much the same. It is not served to the table. You have to go down to the lower deck to get it. It was however a lovely evening and very nice to be out on the water.
