    Afloat Cruises International Sydney - DECEIVING ADS

    Terrible on their off shot cruise queens boat afloat

    published

    Since there is no review page for Poker Afloat's off shot Queens Boat Afloat I am going to review it here. The advertising is so misleading, we thought we will be onboard the Queen mary, not a dodgey boat that let us have a "view" of Queen mary. They also changed the timing of the cruise at the last minute by 2 hours, so instead of 7:30am we departed at 5:30am, incredibly inconvenient and they refused to give us a refund for this. Terrible!

    Great day on the bay better than the pub!

    published

    just saw a bad review about Poker afloat but honesty needs to be expressed sounds like sore losers to me, my group have been going to these cruises for years we celebrated three 40th birthdays last year with them and have not a bad word to say. Great value love the experience. Looking forward to Decembers cruise.

    Poker Afloat is Algood!!

    published

    Me and Friends have been on three times in Melbourne. Experience was great, just what you expect on a boat Cruize, food was just right for the event, hoist were good hoist. And poker was poker! However, some people have made me aware the prizes were not good enough also buy-ins were not towards the prize pool. It did matter to me, unless u made it!.. Which I did!.. So, yes the prizes could have been more better, something they can look into future references ect ect. Finally, there were a lot of beginners but I didn't mind teaching them to give the chips to me:)) lol.. So they finally learnt.. I just said, go to your local up pub and learn. Algoods P.Afloat see u nxt month. Peace out!

    All promise no delivery

    Staff great. Food ok. $100 ticket (buy back in $100+ if you want to make final or get close). Prizes are not clear. Buy back in money doesn't go into pool. Friend made final table and finished 4th - he did win a thing. So disappointing, so much promise, delivered nothing. Could be great too but just isn't. Rather take my $300 to casino - much better off

    Great day out

    published

    Very enjoyable trip. Food and drink excellent, Coffee and tea should be provided, some of us have to drive home and cannot continue drinking.
    When the chips are exchanged the young man shouldn't stretch across the table, especially while a hand is in play. He should go behind people.

    Great day out

    Just heading home from a great day out. Went with reservations due to some reviews. Staff and guests were friendly and i think everyone except one had a really enjoyable day. Enough to eat and drink. Poker was what i expected. Would recommend to anyone.

    Had read some reviews and went along with doubts, but found the day perfect. Friendly people, great staff, drinks aplenty and the food was fine. Would go again. Well done.

    What a sham

    published

    What a sham

    This is a complete joke / waste of time

    $99 dollars (or whatever you managed to buy your ticket for) will turn into $300 easily if you want to make the final table.

    Prizes are a joke and not advertised properly and re-buys don't get added to the prize pool.

    Buyer beware

    Not worth the money

    published

    Not worth the money $100 for the ticket for only 3k chips.
    Then to get a chance to make final table you have to pay at least another $100 for rebuy chips
    Rebuy chips which doesn't even go into the prize pool which THEY claim they do
    Only final 3 get real prizes 3rd and 2nd get accommodation prizes to Bali ONLY accommodation you still have to buy flights
    1st prize 3.5 k which isn't bad
    9th to 4th get vouchers to come back to waste more of your money on rebuy chips
    They give you free beer and finger worth but unless you plan on getting smashed it's not worth it

    Great Day Out

    I went on the pokerafloat cruise in Melbourne this Saturday just gone for a mates birthday. We all had a ball! The weather was great and we enjoyed the city views from the water. I'm not the greatest poker player but was able to learn a lot from the other players. We couldn't fault the food at all and we never had to wait for a drink which was great. There is a lot of sore losers complaining on this site but $99 for four hours of food and drink and good fun is a bargain. If your going to spend lots of money to try and win, then yes the casino is a better option. But if you want a cheap fun day out then get involved. I will be back, thanks guys.

    Great day out!

    I read all the reviews and the bad ones are a little outrageous sounds like bad losers I think. I have been on the Cruise with these guys twice in Sydney and once Melbourne. The boat has about 100 players on at the beginning of the day and ends up with 8 players playing for the total Prizepool which delivered around $10,000 in prizes which I was lucky enough to win a Koh, Samui holiday which my daughter used with a girlfriend last July and thoroughly enjoyed. Keep up the good work all at Poker Afloat, don't take any notice of the sore losers. You should ask your majority of patrons to write a review as I have. Cheers Richard L
    A great experience.

    Disgusting!

    published

    As most people did I also bought a voucher to go on this "poker" cruise.. it was horrible! to deal ourselves was a bad start then to have to try and teach others on the table how to play only to watch everything spiral into a drunken mess which ended up with myself being gropped twice and another woman being punched.. it was a shambles and total waste of a night out.

    RSA out the window and no one knew how to play

    Seriously, seriously bad.
