    Hi Will, Both Russell and I would like to commend both yourself and the staff who took care of us with Daniels 30th Birthday party on the weekend. Everything from the boat to the bar and food ran smoothly and professionally. We will highly recommend you to everyone considering a boat cruise function around Melbourne. Kind regards

    Dear Will and Leigh, I just wanted to thank you both for making our wedding such a huge success!! We honestly had the best night of our lives and so many of our guests described to us how much fun they had. The staff were great, the food was wonderful and music was perfect. Thanks again. I will be recommending your venue to everyone and anyone who needs somewhere fun to celebrate any special occasion. Warmest regards,

    We used Victoria Star for a corporate team building event for roughly 100 people in September 2015. Right from the start, the staff were professional and able to guide us in how to arrange a great function. When we arrived on the day, the boat was immaculate, the food and drinks exactly what we had asked for and the whole day came together very well.   It’s with great pleasure that I recommend Victoria Star for any event involving a cruise in Melbourne.

    Thanks for a great cruise this year! From what I've heard from people, although we haven't had an official meeting yet is that the event was a great success, to my knowledge everyone seemed to have a fantastic time, all of your staff I thought were great and I'm not aware of any issues on our end, so again thanks heaps for it all and I expect you'll be hearing from us for another cruise next year! Thanks again!

    On behalf of the staff and volunteers at the Melbourne Maritime Museum – home of Polly Woodside, I am writing to express our thanks to you and your staff for the bay cruise aboard the Victoria Star. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had a wonderful time. We were very lucky with the weather and also with the opportunity to see the Enterprize under sail. Thank you again.

    I just want to thank you so much for a lovely evening on your Victoria Star. The finger food and the buffet dinner were delicious and very well presented. Our staff and their partners thoroughly enjoyed themselves touring around the bay. The lights of Melbourne were great and the views were fantastic. It was a calm night, the air was warm, so the majority stood outside taking in the great views especially going around where the container ships were being emptied. We loved the music that your DJ played and everyone enjoyed a dance. Will, I need to personally thank you so much for organising the VB – I know it was late notice so thank you very much. There is no doubt that we will be using your floating restaurant the Victoria Star for our next staff function. Please also thank your staff for being so friendly and efficient. Everyone commented on how quick the night went, so maybe next time we can hire your vessel for a few more hours. Thanks again for making our staff function a huge success.

    Thank you for a great night last Wednesday night. I have no negative feed back at all. I found the staff extremely friendly and helpful, the set up is excellent, pizzas were easy to access and no problem with the DJ set up and pack up.

    I'd like to thank you for your help organising Friday night's cruise with me. I think everyone had a great time and hopefully we can do it again in the future. Although numbers weren't what we expected, I think having the upstairs only was a good idea and it had a great atmosphere. Once again thanks for your help, the crew, captain Leigh and yourself have been most helpful. Please let me know if there is any feedback as to how we could organise it better on our end for next time. We look forward to doing business again if you are interested.

    I believe this is our 3rd time we have chosen the Victoria Star for our End of Year Celebration. Again the choice was easy with our Office and Production staff unanimously  wanting to cruise on the Victoria Star. Melbourne put on a fantastic day with the weather and as always the staff, food and atmosphere did not disappoint making the day an absolute pleasure and totally enjoyable. I have had nothing but compliments about this great day and would like to pass them on to you, as without you Will helping me to arrange it all (even with my last minute changes) and all the staff on the day especially hard working Lou of whom many of our guest have asked me to pass on their thanks to her for her tireless effort to make sure everything was done and that nothing was missed The staff here are already working out what to do entertainment wise etc. for next year's cruise, so I think you will be hearing from us again. So thankyou once again to you all.

    Thank you so much for Friday night! The Christmas Party was a huge success with many people stopping me to tell me that it was by far the best Christmas Party we have ever had! From my perspective your staff  were incredible. Every single one of them was entirely professional, polite, efficient and friendly. I will most definitely be recommending the Victoria Star to friends as a fantastic venue for a work function. Thanks again for all your correspondence and organisation.

    Club AXA would like to express its gratitude for a fantastic night we enjoyed aboard the Victoria Star.  Despite the cold, wet weather nothing could dampen our spirit with the great ambience aboard the boat; great music, food and drink.  The finger food you provided was delicious, generous and catered well for all dietary requirements.  Your employees, both bar and waiting staff, were courteous, efficient and attentive. This made for a very fun filled, enjoyable evening. Thanks to you and Victoria Star for a memorable night.
