The cruise itself was amazing, fantastic views and service was ok. We had the gnocchi entree which was beautiful but unfortunately the meal was let down by the main. We got the steak, which was an excellent piece of meat but destroyed by poor cooking and poor choice of condiments. It would have been acceptable if served in a pub on sunday night roast night with overcooked pork but not for a piece of steak of this quality. None of the flavors in this dish worked at all and we ended up taking 2 bites and leaving the rest. The desert fortunately was lovely. Despite the sub-quality dining experience, the cruise was fantastic, the perfect length and with plenty to see.
This was a lovely trip and on asking the commentary was put on. Perhaps a little louder would have been nice.
The trip round the harbour was excellent, with good food well served, and a great view. I would have liked some kind of commentary, which we did not get on the "Top Deck' section although it was available on the rest of the ship, but it was a great afternoon nevertheless.
Very good. Peaceful and relaxing. Food was good. The secret is to board the boat at the King Stret Wharf. Staff was helpful, and polite.
Nice way to get a view of Opera House and bridge by water, especially if it's a sunny day!
My wife and I enjoyed the cruise. The food was excellent, the service without fault. The actual tour could have been more interesting, instead we felt that after the first loop the ship had become a ferry picking up passengers.
A very enjoyable outing. The views are spectacular, and the service and food were divine.
We were disappointed that the cruise, which was advertised as being a 3 hour cruise, lasted less than 2 hours. When we returned to Circular Quay there were hundreds of people ready to board for the next cruise and they did not even wait until we had left the boat before pushing us aside to get on.

Enjoyable setting and meal, but not the 3 hour cruise advertised and expected. After 1 1/2 hours the cruise returned to Circular Quay to take on more passengers. When queried, the host said, "that was it, but we will be going back out over the same route again if you care to stay on board".
Tour was quiet. The description stated a 3hr lunch cruise, which was in fact two one and a half hour circuits doing the same loop round the harbour twice. Food was not great, drinks were reasonably priced for Sydney.
A fabulous way to see all the spectacular views around the harbour. It is a shame that the commentary is only audible on the top deck, which means that as one eats, this is missed. Good lunch, despite my dietary information being ignored.
Cruise was enjoyable, but food was quite disappointing. Also, lower decks had explanations on what we were seeing, which would have been nice for us as tourists. Would have been great to know in advance that there were a few drop off points.
We were given two tickets as a Christmas gift. An ideal gift for a pensioner couple who love outings. The food and the cruise were very enjoyable; however, we were not allocated the window seats that were paid for.
Trip shorter than stated on the site. Environment was a bit dirty, and noisy. Service was very slow...
The food was very ordinary, the service was impeccable, the cruise was enjoyable.
The food wasn't to be expected; however, the views were amazing!
This cruise was advertised as a 3-hr lunch adventure. It was two hours and after a quick spin around Sydney Harbour we went to Darling Harbour. Although the lunch was good, this was basically a ferry boat ride for a lot more $$. Tourist trap. By far the low-light of my three days in Sydney.
Not worth the money. Same sights if you just do the ferry service which is cheaper than the tour. And the food was average. Service was ok. Just not worth the money they charge. And they advertise 3 hours when in fact it was only 90 minutes. I had the option to stay onboard and do the same tour again to get to my 3 hours. I did not.
