I booked this for my partners birthday as a surprise whilst on holiday in Sydney and have to say there were elements that left us disappointed. There was no choice of food - two options for each course and you were given one of each whether you liked it or not. Food was bland and not very exciting at all. Dessert was probably the best course. Our starter was served almost as soon as we departed which is fine if your cruising but we sailed to Circular Quay from Darling Harbour and picked up other guests. This meant we were eating our dinner whilst docked looking at the wharf and a rusty metal pole, waiting for guests to board!
The entertainment during dinner wasn’t great either - a guy playing the piano and a woman singing through her nose! There was a woman singing on the lounge deck who was so much better and would have been much better received on the dinner deck. The lounge deck has some lovely seating and if I’d have known about the food choices (not advised when booking), I’d probably have opted for the afternoon tea which is served on this deck.
Views were worth seeing and the fact you could wander up to the outside decks when you wanted was good.
We sailed back with 10 minutes to spare so not the full 2 hours as advertised.

We booked guaranteed window seat, was very surprised when that meant you had a sit down meal and not the buffet. The meal was great. The trip was just long enough. My only complaint is the sunset was at 7:30 and we left at 5 so did not see it on boat, so not sure why they not change it to leave 6:30? So check sunset times. But apart from that very good value and an enjoyable time.

We very much enjoyed this Cruise, the food was lovely and once we got the hang of ordering drinks on our mobile phone it was very easy with quick service and reasonable prices. It was pleasant and relaxing just floating around the harbour enjoying the sights while we dined.

Highly recommended!

Whilst the food was acceptable, it was nothing to write home about. We were left very disappointed, the Sunset cruise was booked by our son who lives in Sydney as we were visiting and him and his wife for our 20th wedding anniversary . It turned out despite the name of the cruise being SUNSET the cruise finished about an hour half before the sunset! Whilst I’m sure it was somewhere in the small print , it seems to me it should not be a Sunset Cruise if it does not include the sunset. All for of us left the boat feeling disappointed, and I could hear other guests saying the same things as we were. The cost of the cruise meant it was not good value for money .

Simple no frills dinner cruise. The service was very good. Food was fine. It is what was expected. Be sure to check for 20% discount when you book from any tourist Going Places coupon and then it is worth the price.

Average. Great setting of course. Two prawns for the starter was a bit stingy. Beef very good but mashed potato lukewarm. Took ages to get a drink with dinner. Eye contact made with waitress at next table, then she just walked off. She needs to be trained to acknowledge a customer even if there is another job to do first. Dessert needed a bit of cream or ice cream-chocolate brownie was dry. Background music ok early on but later the singer was too loud making conversation with my friend difficult. All in all average for the price.

The staff were friendly greeting as we got on for cruise. The staff serving food were rude because we wanted Vegan menu. The service was slow. The vegan menu was discussing and horrible not worth the money. We didn’t get our meal till later and the staff didn’t know anything about vegan menu and kept trying to give us the main food. In future inform your staff about vegan food and have variety. I wouldn’t go again very disappointed.
One positive note the view of the harbour was beautiful.

This dinner cruise was exactly what I had hoped for. My wife and I were greeted by friendly staff on board the Sydney 2000 ship. The Captains dinner we purchased put us on the top deck with a window seat and the view was spectacular. The choice of food from the 3 course menu was delicious. The service was great and the 2 hour trip around the Sydney Harbour ended to quickly.

We had some trouble getting to ur pickup location on time but this was due to our taxi driver. Once we got on at another location we where all set. Great night, great food and excellent service. We sat next to a very friendly Aussie couple who really made the night a fun experience for us.

We absolutely loved our sunset cruise with cocktail and cheese platter. The views were so amazing partnered with a nice variety of cocktails and a lovely little platter. There were so many opportunities to take pictures of the beautiful harbour bridge and opera house.

We bought our 6 year old daughter along and were so pleased with the service from all members of staff especially Ida who made a huge effort to keep our little family comfortable and happy.

Couldn’t recommend this cruise anymore for anyone visiting Sydney!
