This lunch cruise ticks all the boxes. Fantastic food, including some seafood, salads, hot dishes and delicious desserts. Extremely friendly and professional staff that are only too happy to help. A well maintained, comfortable boat to sit back and relax as you listen to the informative commentary as you cruise past the iconic landscape of Sydney Harbour. The staff went... More

I did the Vivid cruise on Saturday night & thought it was the worst cruise that I have had on Sydney Harbour, We seemed to have missed the light best show as all we saw was The Opera House, Harbour Bridge & office buildings in a distance! I certainly will not recommend your company!

We booked the Vivid 2015 Supersaver ll to see the Vivid Sydney lights. Cruise was wonderful, seeing the lights from the harbour was spectacular, staff onboard were friendly and attentive. My tip would be to book the earlier cruise Supersaver l which departs at 5.45 returns at 7.00pm, this way you would still see the lights from the harbour but... More

Joined the cruise from Darling Harbour and straight into an enormous buffet. Seafood, lamb shanks, and lots of noodle, rice and vegies. That combined with a few beers was a great way to get underway. Headed out slowly from Darling Harbour and cruised past Barangaroo. Looking great at night. The key was seeing the beautiful and fascinating spectacle that is... More

Booked a evening cruise online with Magistic Cruises, Sydney to see Vivid Sydney 2015 cruising Sydney Harbour on their vessel. My wife and I flew up from Melbourne end of May and booked the earlybird price online in April for A$79 each instead of the usual price of A$120 for the cruise. We were offered window seats on the vessel... More

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
