Be delighted with this cruise experience gift in Victoria for one.

Get out of the office and onto the water, it's the end of the year and you've worked hard enough! Our Bonza Christmas Cruise is THE end of year party for anyone who is looking for an event idea with twist, without the HARD WORK!

We all know that an INCREDIBLE night needs serious planning, from the curated entertainment to the menu, we've got the recipe right on a fine evening, and our Bonza Christmas Cruise has people coming back year after year, so we must be doing something right!

Upon arrival, you're friends, colleagues and associates will be greeted with an ice-cold beer, wine or sparkling. Once onboard, you will be served a generous array of hot and cold canapA(c)s, by our roving waiters, while our grazing tables feature dips, fresh seafood, breads and seasonal fruit platters and dessert. With unlimited standard drinks, and the option to upgrade to premium spirits, you won't go thirsty, which is a good thing because our dance floor is going to make you move! There will be live music on the upper level with our resident, and much loved DJ, Chile will be spinning hot hits all night long on the lower level. In between songs, relax in our comfortable lounge area or take in the stunning sunset and bay views from our outdoor deck.
