Nice comfortable vessel. We did a dinner cruise on a Sunday evening so we were automatically upgraded to a window table. Buffet dinner was appetising and the drink package upgrade made it very good value. It would be nice if the cruise provided some commentary for those that have not been on the harbour before. Crew were polite and attentive.

We originally wanted to book the tall ship dinner cruise, we were told by the agent that we would 95% likely be upgraded to the Sydney showtime cruise. We would rather have gone on the tall ship but figured a buffet dinner upgraded to a full sit down dinner with drinks wasn't too bad a deal we went with it.... More

We went on a sightseeing cruise on Magistic Cruises along Sydney Harbour. This was a fantastic way to see the harbour. Although we had walked around some of the areas already, you cannot beat the views you get from the water. The boat was extremely comfortable and spacious. We never felt squashed and there was always plenty of opportunity to... More

We celebrated my kid's 3rd birthday on a lunch cruise with a bunch of close buddies. The private deck upstairs was fantastic & serves very well for a group of 50-60 people with ample space within both the private viewing deck area as well as the dining room inside. Would highly recommend this to people looking at exploring the Sydney... More

We hopped on board for the two hour afternoon cruise from King Street Wharf 5. We had booked on line as it was a better rate for a sight seeing tour around the harbor. As it was my two daughters first trip to Sydney I thought the best way to see all the iconic sights like the Harbour Bridge, Opera... More

Had an amazing time on the Majistic Dinner & Drinks cruise! Costing approx $130 pp- including buffet dinner ( all you can eat) and open bar( all you can drink) , it was definitely well worth the money! The customer service when booking the cruise was amazingly friendly and we opted for the 'Alfresco dining' which is a reserved table... More

We took the one hour cruise, which was long enough. The sights were great - you go around the harbour and past all the good iconic sights - under the Harbour Bridge, past Opera House, Kirribili House, the bays etc. The only thing was it was a bit impersonal - recorded information about the sights and not really any interaction...

Amazing value! A great way to see the harbour. We chose the two hour cruise and you get a complimentary drink. Cannot fault it at all. There wasnt that many people on board at the time we went so we had this huge boat to ourselves. There is a massive top deck where you get some amazing photo oportunities. The... More

We chose a 2 hour harbour cruise with a platter and bottle of bubbly. This cruise is value for money. The food was lovely and the bubbly added to our special experience :) It was a lovely way to see and enjoy this beautiful city. Highly recommend this cruise to anyone. You have the option of only 1 hour but... More

Hmm not sure what to say about this cruise other than it was OK. The staff are friendly enough and the food is not bad but I was disappointed that it did not travel very far and covered the same ground twice as we picked up additional passengers at Circular Quay. Fortunately the day we went the sun was shining... More
