19 August, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 20 August, 2023 @ 12:00 am

This is the only event in Melbourne with 4 HOURS of cruise time aboard the most sought-after open-air rooftop boat! Meet 200 like-minded singles Over 40.  The only Boat Cruise in Melbourne Exclusive to Singles Over 40.  Our party boat cruises always sell out, so don’t miss out … book your ticket today.

Downstairs live music by Bettadaze  …. rock band who take literally any genre and turn it into a party…. Steppin’ Out Events is excited to have “Bettadaze” on our party boat cruise.

Upstairs we change the tempo to our Disco floor, two parties on the one night with our favorite DJ Dave.

Party and mingle while watching the sunset over Melbourne from the Yarra River. There will be tunes pumping with a mix of all genres, drinks flowing, delicious canapes, a complimentary drink on arrival, and uninterrupted views of our gorgeous city.

The Carol Dee is a huge double-decker party boat with an open-air upper deck featuring live music and dance floor as well as a huge lower deck, with 270-degree windows ensuring amazing views everywhere you look!

We will be heading downstream on the Yarra River, under the Bolte and Westgate bridges to Williamstown. On the return we will turn it up a notch, taking in the city view via Port Melbourne and St Kilda, when the party is well and truly underway.

Coming solo is the norm! Our friendly male and female hosts will greet you at the door, help you check-in, and give you a run-through of what will happen throughout the night. We also have a ‘meet and greet’ area for everyone coming solo and can provide introductions. No need to worry about attending without a wing person, you will meet one at the event!

Delicious cocktails, spirits, and plenty of party-starting shots are available at the bar!

Door prize includes a  Free Holidays from Fun Escapes, 3 Day/4, and Nights. If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll receive a Holiday Gift Voucher that will allow you to book 3 Nights of FREE Resort or Hotel Accommodation at over 20+ destinations around Australia and New Zealand. Or other International destinations including; Fiji, Bali, and Phuket (which you can extend to a 7-day stay).

Ladies’ Choice

Ladies’ Choice was a term used at a dance decades ago, for one song a lady could ask a gentleman for a dance. After every event both ladies and gentleman contact us and ask if their details could be passed onto a member they met at the event. We understand it can be difficult to swap numbers during the night or you simply didn’t find the right opportunity to ask. Times have changed and after talking to our wonderful male members they would love for a lady to ask them first and the ladies also thought this was a wonderful idea. Some events we have introduced “Ladies’ Choice” a card the ladies can use to write an individual message, asking someone they have met on the night if they would like to catch-up after the event. The lady will supply her phone number and give it to a gentleman on the night. The gentleman does not need to answer straight away as they maybe surprised by this offer. Just think the worst that can happen is you have made a new friend the best ……. well sky is the limit.!!  This is optional, the ladies can attend the event and not use this service. Yes gentleman you can of course still initiate and give your details to any ladies at our events.
