All aboard for High Tea at Sea. Ladies and gentlemen your tea is served with a delicious selection of hot and cold treats that will tempt both your sweet and savoury tastes. More Info ...

Girls, girls, girls, this has to be the dining cruise with the most fun! A girls day out, kitchen teas, hens parties, baby showers, birthdays, charity events are all hosted on this cruise - a revival of a great British tradition with a uniquely Australian flavour.

The Cruise Director gets the party started with a glass of Brown Brothers pink bubbly which results in immediate and non-stop conversation. I have never experienced a phenomenon like it - how do girls have so much to talk about that results in so much laughter? How do the overflowing High Tea stands empty when I cannot perceive a moment when they are not talking? Does it vanish by osmosis? These are not small food items - there are blinis topped with prawns, whole chocolate coated strawberries, mini savoury pastries and much, much more.  The female gender will always be one of lifes great mysteries and I have always been partial to a good mystery.
