Ordered a bucks night cruise and got much more than I expected. Jennifer of the company was so incredibly helpful and understanding. The buck was amazed at what came about and I think will remember it for many years to come.

I bought two tickets for a Vagabond Jazz lunch cruise at a charity lunch in April (tickets kindly donated to the silent auction prizes by Vagabond Cruises). My husband and I went on the 'Christmas in July' cruise on Saturday 27th July. What a great experience. The staff were professional, efficient, friendly and discreet. The jazz pianist was very very good - hard to tell when he was having his break and Michael Buble's music was being played! The food was fresh, gorgeous and very plentiful. The facilities were also very clean.The cruise took us around the usual highlights of the harbour, under the bridge, past the gorgeous foreshore homes, and it also went under the ANZAC bridge and around the fish market area of the harbour and around Balmain - an area not often included on the usual cruises. This was a refreshing change. The perfect weather obviously helped to top off our cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch cruise, and it is now something that is on my agenda when I have overseas visitors.
Thank you Vagabond Cruises.

We booked for the lunch Vagabond Jazz Cruise last weekend.

Despite the clouds and inclement weather (not the fault of the cruise operators) it was a totally enjoyable time.

The boat was old but IMO that added to the charm - it sort of chugged slowly around the harbour at an extremely leisurely pace - hey best to chill and enjoy the music and the harbour!

Definitely the highlight was the musos - Piano bass and drums with Steve Clisby on vocals - some jazz a little R&B - really cool

An added bonus was this same guy showed up on the Voice!!! IMO much better live!!

An evening spent on Sydney Harbour is always spectacular and our dinner was very pleasant. However I don't understand why the skipper motored about in the choppy water's to the east of the Harbour Bridge while we ate dinner and then took us to the calmer waters to the west of the Bridge after dinner.

we went on the Latino dinner dance cruise with Vagabond on Sat 23 Feb,2013 and really enjoyed it. The boat arrived and left on time. Numbers were reduced due to the heavy rain but that meant we had the advantage of a smaller more intimate group and less to no queues.
The Dance troup boarded after first course was served and left the cruise before desert. They were very entertaining and managed to get a lot of audience participation going. Food was plentiful and tasty and all staff were most friendly and helpful. A very good night - depsite the weather.
