I just love to book in with Experience Oz, always the best deal to save that hole in a pocket when travelling with kids.

We loved the experience on the Father's Day, my folks from overseas and truly loved the whole experience. The captain and deckhead made it so entertaining and informative. Free beverages on board made it even more special for us. I definitely recommend it.

A great trip to experience when you're in Melbourne city.

Had a great experience on the cruise to Williams town. Never heard of the place before, however. It was nice to discover some place new. We had a good experience and would definitely recommend this to others. There are nice gardens to discover and stroll around.

I purchased the City to Williamstown return cruise ticket online and the procedure was easy.

I purchased the City to Williamstown return cruise ticket online and the procedure was easy. The support staff are helpful. I was required to reconfirm the cruise 48 hours before departure but in view that I do not have a roaming line to call, I emailed to confirm instead. The staff responded promptly and confirmed my reservation with a map to the berth attached which was helpful. At the ticket booth, I just show my confirmation email and my cruise ticket was issued. The cruise was enjoyable with a nice view, nevertheless, it was very cold as it was winter time. Tea and water are provided with clean toilet on the cruise boat. Recommended cruise.
