The Ultimate MJ Tribute Show

Hop aboard for a spectacular 3 hour cruise and entertainment whilst soaking up the atmosphere on Melbourne’s waterways!

Afloat Cruises is proud to partner with one of Australia’s finest entertainers Peter Harrington-Olsen to bring our passengers a cruise experience like no other:

Moonwalk Afloat

Groove along to all of the classics from Michael Jackson’s illustrious career as you are transported back in time to MJ’s prime! This high energy show features all the hits and moves that made him a superstar!

“Impersonation is taking on the character / role of another person; it’s about mastering their idiosyncrasies and having the ability to transform into their skin. It’s about understanding and believing that you are that person whilst you are on stage. Impersonation is more about being a triple threat – you need to sing, you need to dance and you need to act, sometimes all 3 simultaneously”…… Peter Harrington –Olsen

Falling in love with Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’ music video from a young boy, Harrington-Olsen tried to imitate Michael Jackson in every way – from his infamous Moonwalk step to his captivating vocals and spellbinding dance moves, as he says, “ Michael was really something special to me.

It is with that reference to the icon that Harrington-Olsen pushes his own performance boundaries and dares to give his audience more than just a mere impersonation show.

Not only are prime views of the Moonwalk show part of your experience, but you are also presented with a welcome drink voucher (including sparkling, beer, wine or soft drink) as you step aboard.

Your tastebuds are in for a treat as well, because Mini Potato Rostis, Chicken Skewers, Homemade Quiches, Spring Rolls, Samosas and Bruschettas are all being served to accompany the show.

An amazing show, refreshments, sights and sounds; it’s all yours with this Afloat Cruises cruise event that’s got to be on your calendar of things to do in 2017.


For only $10 extra per person!!

You and your guests will have priority access to the VIP section upstairs where you will meet n greet the cast of Moonwalk Afloat and Peter Harrington himself, where you will be free to take as many photos as you like with the performers!.
