My partner and I were incredibly dissapointed with our burlesque showboat experience. He had bought the tickets for me as a birthday gift and I was really looking forward to it. For the first part of the night you're all crowed into the lower deck...More

I went onboard for my birthday with three girlfriends and had the best night! Great staff, and a phenomenal burlesque show. DJ was a bit random but we were happy to have some drinks and make our own fun! I'll definitely be going again!

Waited in the freezing cold before getting on the boat. Finger good was good, drinks expensive. Expected the show to go for longer.More

Questions & Answers
Hi Captain Jeff. Do you have an email I can contact you directly? I just have a query - moreso a plea 😭😩 I came on your awesome boat last September and had the best experience with a few of my girls (my previous review titled 'best night ever' - yes, it was that awesome!) Anyways, earlier this year I bought tickets with a good friend of mine coz I wanted her to see how awesome the lLady Cutler is and the burlesque show! That week leading up to the showboat event my dad had a severe stroke so it felt wrong going out and having a great time knowing my dad was in hospital. I called your receptionist hoping to have our tickets re-scheduled for the next show but they advised no - And she explained why and I understood. I understand that you guys are running a business, but due to unforeseen emergencies I was hoping to reschedule as we spent 200 on these tickets (including the drink packages). I'm in the process of ordering tickets for the Saturday show coming up (22 April) for the four of us - and if there is no chance at all that I can have these tickets rectified, is there any way at all that I can at least use the two drinking packages we purchased for this coming event? Or the purchased tickets? I can send the receipts of purchase - I just need an email address to send it to. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you and looking forward to next weeks boat cruise!

Geat idea, but every seat on the boat is good for NYE. We do not have formal seating and depends on how the Captain aligns the Lady on the night as to which side is more favoured.
