I booked the champagne cruise on the tall ship for my husband's birthday. We are locals and I was so embarrassed by the cruise! FIRST: the cruise was on the wange ferry NOT the tall ship as advertised! The ferry was FILTHY. Disgusting dirty carpet that looked as if it had not been vacuumed for months! The toilet stank of...

There was a lot of confusion prior to loading since they overbooked. IF we were "entertained throughout the cruise by many of the crew’s stories", we missed ALL of them. The "delicious dinner" turned out to be 0.02 killograms (1 oz.) of dry shredded pork, shredded chicken OR shredded beef. The size of the portion sounds exaggerated but it's not.... More

I am very disappointed with the experience I was seeking an experience that met both of my wife and my own expectations this experience did not achieve this. Twilight dinner cruise had me thinking something else I was frustrated with the overcrowding, the foolhardy drinkers and the lack of proper or satisfactory amenities. I have been to third world countries... More

I had expected this tour to be quite special. I was sadly disappointed. The shi was much smaller than had expected. This was evident in that rather than the staff serve drinks you had to queue at a bar which was located midships accessed by a passage between the ships side and centre housing less than 1 metre wide. When... More

The staff were so well informed and hosted a wonderful experience for us. We got to climb the mast and enjoy beautiful views and wonderful stories about the harbor. Highly recommended!

The whole experience was simple and easy from booking to disembarking and everything in between, it couldn't have been easier. Being from Sydney it was wonderful to sit back and see Sydney Harbour from a tourist’s point of view. The crew where friendly and well informed and kept everyone well informed. The champagne was of course free and plentiful, and... More

We went on the champagne brunch cruise yesterday. The crew (all back packers who live on board the ship) were very friendly. The champagne was very generously shared (if not too much if anything) and there was an abundance of canapé type foods that kept coming and coming and coming! The oysters were apparently really good ( if you like... More

We took the "Wine and Canape" Cruise with the on board stay. We left an hour late and the cruise which was advertised at ending at 12.45pm the following day, ended at 11am. Food was satisfactory but there wasn't a lot brought around. Drinks were included and OK. The accommodation was below standard for a cruise of this price ($499... More

I did a dinner cruise a couple of weeks back after being given the cruise as a present. It was absolutely fantastic. The food was perfect. We sailed all the way down the harbour from Sydney's exclusive Eastern suburbs. The host gave thoroughly entertaining commentary and the crew were all lovely. I have spent many years on the harbour and... More
