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.

My daughter gave me a Red Balloon voucher for my birthday which I put towards a Vagabond Vivid cruise. My husband and I went last night and we were not disappointed. From the unrushed entry onto the boat, where we were warmly greeted, to the departure two hours later, it was a lovely experience. The food was plentiful, hot and... More

Travelled on your vivid cruise last week with a few friends and had such a nice time. It was so pleasant to be seeing vivid from another angle. Staff were all delightful and booking through the office was a breeze. Would reccommend Vagabond cruises to anyone and everyone.

Foods were pretty bad. All we could eat were small frozen spring rolls and grilled chicken that you could find at Coles. Not the worth of the price and definitely not recommended when you want to impress guests. But the most disappointed experience was when we called the service center. Felt the customer service staff were extremely rude. Zero hospitality.

This cruise exceeded all of our expectations and everyone on board had a most enjoyable time. The captain and crew were very courteous and accommodating and the Princess was decked out beautifully. The décor although a little dated was lovely and clean and well presented with plenty of room above deck and below for all involved. The DJ just smashed... More
