Some may call this review unfair but at the time of my cruise with Vagabond, I was pretty mad and very disappointed. We arrived on the boat to find a heap of dining tables and chairs. When we sat down there was NO ROOM to move and in order for one of us to go to the bathroom everyone had... More

I thought I would book a lunch cruise for Fathers Day and choose Vagabond cruises, very professional company when booking and even followed up a couple of days before with a phone call to make sure that I had all the paperwork. The boat arrived on time and was a bit on the older side but comfortable, the tables were... More

We celebrated my son's 21st birthday in styleamundo! The cruise was perfect for the 14 of us....it was still our own 'little celebration', but it teamed well with the other passengers 'little celebrations'. Everyone was up for a good time & that was certainly achieved. Terrific waitresses & bar staff. Muchos grazias!

Rude totally rude buffet service.. I asked the man there for extra lamb and he snapped stating that I already had be given 2 slices. In the end I was happy that I didn't get extra as it was more like lamb flavoured chewing gum.. Coke was flat. I hate flat coke. Entertainers were good, but I wished the microphone... More

For a first time experience on a night cruise we found it very entertaining and fun. The food was excellent and we were all full. However it was a bit squishy to move around the chairs and the music was a bit loud. There was also no Greek music when I asked the DJ, however the opther music was nice.

Hi Sabata A, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! I am not so sure which cruise you went on board as the DJ usually doesn't have cultural songs available unless it is a private cruise. Overall though, I am glad you had a great time and hope to have you on board in the future again. More

I arranged for a group of 45 to cruise Sydney Harbour last Sunday night 02.03.14 on Vagabond Princess. Our group comprised male and female Licensed Club General Managers from the Gold Coast and a range of trade suppliers. Trust me, we can be a little fussy at times, particularly with service and food / beverage standards. We had no troubles... More

Hi Aishee_Alison, Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate you taking the time to tell us your honest feedback. Firstly I would like to address the issue of the cruise being "overcrowded". With the MV Spirit, we can actually take a licensed capacity of 350 passengers. On this night, there was exactly 225 passengers. This shows that the vessel... More

With such a wide choice of boats for the Boxing Day cruise on the harbour to watch the start of the Sydney - Hobart race, we plumped for Vagabond Spirit with no real idea of what to expect.....but what a fantastic day!
