We had our wedding on Bella Vista cruise. It was the best service possible, lovely and very friendly staff. Best food ever. Everyone loved and enjoyed the wedding with the help of the cruise staff. They answer emails so quickly and will do whatever they can to make the party awesome. We were so happy. Thank you guys.

We held our school formal on the Bella Vista and it was flawless! From the communication, organisation, staff, crew, music, decor, food, security right through to the boat itself, everything was perfect. The best event of this type I have ever been to. Highly recommended!

From start to finish All Occasion Cruises made our special day effortless! All the staff were extremely helpful and professional. The vessel looked stunning on the day and the food provided was exceptional. Highly recommend using AOC for for your next event.

I’ve dealt with All Occasion Cruises for a number of years, hosting Major Customer Functions on the Bella Vista. Always impressed with Management & Staff ensuring the event runs smoothly for our 300+ guests. With great food, liveDJ and friendly-hardworking staff – AOC have once again made our event a great success. Special thanks to Joe, Liana, Adam & James.

I cannot recommend All Occasion Cruises HIGHLY enough! Everything from the booking process, all the pre-planning to the event on the night, the staff were so helpful and far exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be booking our nextevent with you. Thank you!

The experience with All Occasion cruises was marvellous. All arrangement was asexpected and the cruise director was always on her toes to support and was attentive. There were around 250 guests and all enjoyed their time. Food was good and there were enough staff to look after our guests. I would like to thank our Event manager Rebekah, Laura and Dale who was our Cruise Director.

This is Voice of Charity's third year having a Mother's Day fundraising cruise. It was a delight working with management of All Occassion cruises. We would discuss our requirements and they were very obliging to our requests. The staff on board the "Bella Vista" were professional and at the service of our guests in a polite and professional manner.The buffet lunch was fresh and of high quality and was enjoyed by all. All this contributed to the success of our cruise. We look forward to our next cruise on Sydney harbour.

Absolutely unforgettable and memorable Melbourne Cup cruise. All you need is agroup of friends you want as company for the day, and AOC will do the rest. The cheerful and well organised team took awesome care of us from the time we are standing by the wharf waiting, to the time they cheered and waved us off the pontoon. The food was definitely the best we have had on the very many meal cruises we have had, perfect combo of hot and cold and very generously refilled constantly. Service at the bar, on the floor... and the DJ...!! All second to none. AOC is now our preferred cruise operator... by a mile!! Thank you team!!

Monica Wehinger

What a wonderful night! This was Houseproud's first time having a function on a cruise and beats having a venue on land especially when it ties in with Vivad. What an experience for everyone. A big thank you to Laura whom I have been dealing with the past few months in organising the event, the crew, staff and organiser on the night James who did a wonderful job. They went above and beyond for our function! Fantastic to everyone at All Occasion Cruises and all thestaff on the Bella Vista who made everyone welcome. We will definitely be using this company again! CONGRATULATIONS! keep up your the fantastic job you are all doing.

Would just like to say a special THANKS to the team at All Occassion Cruises. We held our Annual New Year Party on the MV Bella Vista this year and the night was a huge success. Despite the rain, the team were ready with umbrellas to welcome our guests, nothing was an issue on the night, the food, the service, the furniture, the DJ all were spectacular. I look forward to hosting another event with them soon!

Danni Gunning

Anthea.. where do I even begin? You and your team were absolutely wonderful! Reviews have come back from the night and it was by far our best event of the week. Thank you for all your hard work and back and forth with me, you completely smashed it! I know sometimes it goes unnoticed, but you have done an amazing job on this event and I am very grateful I was able to work with you. Also, thank you for the cheeky bottle of bubbles at the end of the night you really didn’t have to do that but it was very much appreciated! Fingers crossed we get to venture out to Sydney again and I will be calling you up! Please thank you team for me as well, they really did take wonderful care of us the whole night, everything went flawless!

Courtney Scofield

I attended an event showcase on the Bella Vista. It was incredible!! Amazing food, drinks and the entertainment was memorable! So much variety.
I especially loved how much the open plan spaces could be adapted and used throughout the night - sit-down dining, cocktail spaces, a dancefloor and outside break out spaces made the night flow with ease. Thank you AOC!
