The commentary was good but cannot catch all that was said due to ambient noise, sound system and talking a bit fast. A good view of Melbourne from the river and a relaxing ride.

We (2 adults, 2 kids) enjoyed the experience. The cruise was large enough to fit a lot of people without feeling too crowded, there were toilets, and the captain and his assistant were very friendly. The captain spent the first half an hour telling us about the places we were passing, very informative and entertaining. I highly recommend this experience.
