The view of the firework display from the ship in the harbour area was awesome. It was difficult to know in which direction to look.
A once in a lifetime experience, not to be missed.

I recommend the Sydney Harbour New Years Eve Cocktail Cruise because it is beautiful and terrific, but there is a big problem for me, sometimes the music is too loud. I am not a young man anymore!
We enjoyed the evening, but had been advised by yourselves that the meal was a seated meal at shared tables. It was a slight disappointment that the meal was actually a buffet meal with space very limited, but enjoyable all the same.
Had a great time, only comments would be too long to queue at the bar for drinks, could have had more servers walking around with bottles of drink. Food was too little in quantity. Gad a couple of samosas and spring rolls all night. Being a vegetarian there was not much choice although I did request vegetarian whilst making the booking. Apart from that, great evening!
Had a great time. Met some fun people. Syndey harbour from a boat is fantastic. Only thing I would improve is to have more bars on the boat. There was always a huge crowd and wait to get a drink - maybe separating the champagne and wine from the call drinks would have made it better.
The Cruise is quite nice initially, however right before the count down, the captain moved the ship and pointed the front at the fireworks without any previous forewarning. Everyone in the boat started moving around in the end having the worst site for the fireworks ever. The other cruise stayed at the same spot and all have the best viewing point. I would strongly recommend other company for the next event.
Not enough seating, feet were on fire by the time we got off. Free for all tourists grabbing food and drink, great staff kept smiling through all the snobbery, good on 'em!
Had to wait 45 minutes for a glass of wine or beer, not enough food, too many people and did not see any fireworks. Somebody even got a chair and stood on it in front of everybody, waste of money lots of money, considering we came all the way from England to see the fireworks.
For the price we found that the food was poor. We were on the top deck and we had to go 'hunt' for our food and not until we spoke to staff did a reasonable amount of food appear. Most of the food we were offered was factory made from freezer to deep fryer and we were probably expecting more 'hand made'. Also more seating would have been good.
Maybe sitting at a table would have been better. 6 hours and if you move the chair, you lose it. I think it does not give the service for the price.
