Last night of our brilliant holiday and what a way finish. Picked up from Darling Harbour King Street Wharf Transported under the Harbour Bridge and past The Opera House. The views were spectacular. The food was excellent 6 courses that were each accompanied by different wines. The staff were attentive and explained each course and the wine that accompanied it. Would recommend.

This tour was just absolutely amazing.
We enjoyed a six course meal with great wine and live music. The music was a enchanting enhancement as we were served each course and watched the beautiful lights of Sydney from the ship. I can't recommend this tour enough!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Fabulous tour! Decided to pay the extra for the Sky Deck Gold dinner cruise with a guaranteed window seat as we were celebrating a special occasion. We were seated on the exclusive Sky Deck on the evening cruise, with our own chefs, wait staff and entertainment. There was nearly too much food on the 7 course menu! All servings were generous and the food was superbly cooked to order, then presented. The staff and service were excellent Hi Eilika, sorry if i misspelled your name, worthy of any fine dining restaurant. The music was great and we slow danced for a while, before heading up to the top deck for a romantic walk while we sailed around Sydney harbour. Well worth the money for the cruise, and we would definitely recommend paying the extra for the Sky Deck Gold for the exceptional menu, drinks and service.

Well that was annoying from the Viator site - wrote the review and submitted using the Link from the email, only to be told I wasn't logged in!!

Anyway - not going to write the whole thing again.

Food and wines selected was very good - as were the breathtaking views of the Harbour at night.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

I very rarely give feedback - but this time i'm compelled. I booked the Captain Cook Sky deck Gold dinner cruise (with window) for our wedding anniversary. We could not have been happier!! The service was amazing!!! The food was great!! the wines excellent!! Please do NOT change a thing - it was perfect for us. From the canapes and champers at the start to the 6 course selection, to the cleanliness of the vessel to the great attention from staff. We had a great time and were continually offered drinks etc(which we really appreciated). We will do it again for sure-can't wait.
