A wonderful way to explore Sydney Harbour!

The ship maybe a little older, but it has everything you could want. Excellent service, excellent food (and plenty) and a very comprehensive cruise of our Harbour. Loved it.

We had 25 girls for a Hen's night on board. The staff were friendly and everyone had a great time. However, on the flip side, the dessert was very minimalist and ordinary, the tea and coffee was ordinary. The entertainment was very amateur and too short. The cruise advertises, a Majestic show from all over the world. From the build... More

You get what you pay for: this is not a luxury vessel. But for a reasonable price you get a lot. We got a brilliant buffet, we had 20 in our group and everyone could find something they liked. Staff were friendly and full of life. The show was engaging and entertaining. Bar options are sufficient. Toilets on board were... More

We stood waiting to board in the pouring rain, listening to the captain shouting at his team members which wasn't the best first impression. The boat was very comfortable and offered brilliant views. The staff were friendly, helpful and did a... More

Great Night on the MV Princess, with the only downfall having to stand in pouring rain before we were allowed on board. Would have been good to allow all on board first then check our tickets. Food was fantastic & staff friendly once on board. We were situated on the upper deck undercover of course but the cruise around the... More

Thanks all for a great cruise on the harbour. Hard working, friendly staff along with great food made it a memorable night....shame about the weather. :-( can recommend and would do this again. Negatives? Some tables were a bit cramped and the usual greedy folk who decided on second helpings before some people had even visited the buffet. However, a... More

We had the best for our little Sunday sesh. The boat wasn't full which meant plenty of room. Staff awesome. Nothing to complain about really.
