Our party of 6 adults chose the Top Deck Lunch Cruise as a great way to see the Harbour, Food was excellent, service was prompt and friendly. My only comment would be that we had to order drinks through an app which took a little bit of mucking around but once we got the hang of it it was easy. Loved the fact that we could have lunch then move around the boat - downstairs in the lounge area or upstairs on the open deck. Also loved that we could stay on the vessel for 2 circuits of the Harbour. Very economical considering we could use our NSW dining vouchers. Great experience and would highly recommend.

This was a small special birthday lunch, the Captain Cook staff went over and above to make it feel very very special.

The welcome was warm and inviting, the table staff very attentive but not interuptive.
The menu very balanced and appealed to everyone’s tastes.

We were pleasantly surprised to also have music and lovely singing to enjoy, very nice way to sail Sydney harbour.

To top this off, the staff arranged a special sparkler for the birthday person that a accompanied his desert with a choir of happy birthday from the staff

To everyone who looked after this small group celebrating a birthday a big big thankyou

We would highly recommend this top deck lunch for the food, the cruise and great service

This is an amazing time. Nothing better than cruising on beautiful Sydney Harbour enjoying a gorgeous 3 course lunch. The food is so very good. Lovely selection and cooked to perfection. A menu to chose from. The staff are warm and friendly and really can’t wait to do it again. The vessel is immaculate. Thoroughly enjoyed it all. A definite must especially for visitors.

Once again Captain Cook Cruises has provided us with another memorable day on magnificent Sydney Harbour. The service, food and beverage that was enjoyed by our group was second to none and could not be faulted. Many thanks to the very hard working Sky Deck crew that looked after our every need with a high level of efficiency and good humour.

We truly enjoyed the food which was surprisingly good
A “long lunch” is an understatement . We wish we would’ve gotten off at the 1st return to Circular Quay-to go around d the exact same journey became dull

As a last minute addition to our time in Sydney we decided to add the Harbor Lunch cruise. It was nicer than we expected and the food was good. Great way to view the harbor and relax!

Well worth every penny including upgrade to window seat. Good was excellent as was the staff. Very smooth ride. As there was no commentary on the dining area we went around again at no extra charge handover up to the upper deck. Would recommend this highly as a 1at experience of the harbour. Added bonus the man at the next table proposed to his girl friend. Oh she said yes xx
