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.

What can I say. My fiancé returns home from bucks night and you aren't supposed to kiss and tell, but it was absolutely appalling!! Do NOT waste your money on the unprofessional, crude, filthy language staff aboard vagabond leaving circular quay. Also a rip off! Beer and wine only ( not even red wine... This had to be purchased on... More

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

It was a mixed affair with highs and lows. It was a miserable day weather wise which didn't help. 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
