Afloat Cruises International Sydney - DECEIVING ADS
I'd like to give them zero rating but one of the staff deserves at least 1. We came today 5.30am to catch the supercat that we thought will take us to the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship. People who came were all excited to board the vessel only to find out that in this supercat we will spend the whole 3 hours cruise. Yes, it was terrible. I'm a Sydney local and I see this harbour view whenever I want and even the cruise ships docked in the Circular Quay. During the trip, nothing was special. The staff looked like pulled out from the bed to serve food..., no greetings nor smiles in their faces. To think that they have failed all the expectations of their passengers, they should have at least displayed a friendly and apologetic gesture to make the trip less frustrating. Now, the food..it was ok, nothing special, a bread, some fruits, a little muffin, sausages, hash brown and a choice of drink. The lady who takes the tickets wear the same gloves to serve the food and even touches them-the bread and muffin. The guy who prepares the hot drinks doesn't also wash husband hands and touches his hands everywhere. Boat was floating just around the Opera house and near the Cruise ship for 2 hours and then decided to go back to wharf 9 because it was too boring to finish the 3 hour cruise. Their Groupon ads was very misleading, It was definitely a ripped off. Please people don't be fooled by them. You can do the same thing without spending a fortune as you'll get the same view in the Circulay Quay.
Terrible on their off shot cruise queens boat afloat
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!
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!!
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
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.
Very enjoyable day
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
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.
Fun Day Out
Poker Afloat team congratulations - you guys and girls did a great job - was enjoyable all the way through - I had read some reviews before I went - the good and the bad ones. I am telling you people, it is worth the price. $100 these days doesn't get you much, and when you think about it you get first a 4 hour cruise - itself an enjoyable experience, canapes and drinks throughout the day brought to you with a smile - and you then get to meet some interesting characters - and to all you so called wingers about the actual tournament on offer - s...eriously fellows it is a bit of fun, and any half bit player knows that the stack is short but that is not why you go to something like this. This is a day of fun - chilling out - have a few drinks and a chat and ye play a bit of poker---- well that's all and to those who are going or thinking of going remember that a good time starts with you - Cheers
Not worth the money
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.
Worst experience ever !!!!
I would beg for anyone to not be as stupid as I was to attend this sham. Unfortunately I had only read the reviews after purchasing my ticket and could not refund it.
Very unprofessional. Boat looked like it was falling apart with teared furniture etc. Including the rebuys there would have been at least anywhere over $28000 in cash however the prize pool never changed and none of the re buys went towards the prize pool. Terrible food cheap drinks. I am actually outraged I will not recommend this to anyone. Even the players were just alcoh...olics who came for the drinks I believe because they had no idea how to play. I only wish I could rate this with zero stars. I am writing this review on my mobile and wish I had the energy to sit here and write an essay. Don't be a sucker. Star city casino has a 330 buy in game and that is worth going to
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.
