What a fantastic dinner cruise aboard the Magistic! I really find myself at a loss of words, but it would be an injustice not to share such an exhilarating experience with the rest of the world! We were actually very disappointed with our hotel on our arrival in Sydney, but the Magistic dinner cruise definitely turned things around for us.

Our party of 30 took a lunch cruise to celebrate Mothers' Day, and we got fantastic value for money. The cruise itself was very good (albeit with a recorded commentary), however the food provided was really outstanding with ample selections available to keep any group happy.

We have looked at this cruise a few times and finally managed to do the Lunch Cruise yesterday. It was a perfect day in the harbour with great weather. We requested a window seat and managed to get the upgrade for free. The food was very good, good variety and very fresh and tasty. The desserts were simple but again... More

Our group of 16 friends booked a dinner harbour cruise on the Magistic boat. It is a large boat and very stable on the water. A large table was reserved for us on the front deck where we enjoyed the first hour of the cruise. High winds forced us to eat inside. There were lots of choices of foods and... More

Nice cruise and great staff The sights you see are always great on Sydney Harbour, but they need to have live commentary instead of pre recorded hard to hear stuff. The buffet needs improving as the I personally found it average and lacked selection.We also purchased the drink package with our booking which was good value as this gives you... More

Yesterday a party of 40 took their lunch time cruise we were bitterly dissapointed with the quality of food and price of the drinks. The toilets were disgustingly filthy, save your money and go on manly ferry .

We were on Magistic Cruises in Sydney for a harbor dinner cruise on October 28, 2014. We are a 28 people tour group. The food were pretty bad and the steaks were so tough that we could not even cut them using the knifes they provided. When we asked for ice, the waitress was very nicely complied, however, she was...

We went on the Sunday Night Dinner Cruise. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The boat was not really what i was expecting considering the price. Seating was a bit too much like a cafe. It would have been nice to have a little more atmosphere. Food was buffet style and the queue was long as only one side... More
