I thought I had posted a review however as it hasn't appeared here it is. We visited from the uk and as our one chance in a lifetime to do something extraordinary we booked this cruise on NYE. To say we were bitterly disappointed is putting it mildly. It was cramped and everyone packed in like sardines, food was ok,... More

I wished I had read the reviews from others before with their disappointment of their NYE cruise as the Australia Day cruise for me was similiar and it would have saved me money. It is true you are SO FAR AWAY from the fireworks display it is pointless even going on the top deck cos you cannot see anything. The... More

So much fun with friends celebrating a 30th birthday. The views around Darling Harbour were spectacular. The buffet was delicious and the Brazilian show was really good, nice dancing and music. We even won a prize! We totally recommend the cruise for those looking for breathtaking views and a good entertainment!

Booked for the Aussie day cruise on Vagabond Spirit including the drinks supplement. Boat arrived on time no rush to get on as all tables were reserved and boarding was by parties so only a few at a time. On boarding shown to our table with a window seat on the top deck plus wrist bands for the drinks which... More

Took the Australia Day Lunch cruise on the Vagabond Star and had a terrific time. We had a pleasant 3 hours pottering up and down the harbour, chasing the ferries and watching all the activities on the water. The buffet lunch was really tasty and plentiful with a variety of hot and cold meats salads prawns and oysters. Staff and... More

My fifth New Years in this great city certainly proved to be the best. Unrivaled views of the Opera House, Bridge & Fireworks. Excellent food and drinks included along with pleasant and helpful staff. Would highly recommend!! See you next year Vagabond.

Went on the NYE cruise with family visiting from the UK. Having read some reviews from other guests, I am unsure where these people were looking to claim they couldn't see the fireworks! We had an amazing view of the bridge and both displays and my guests could not have been happier! Food was plentiful and the staff seemed happy... More
