Happy 60th Birthday!
bpjones, Mar 2023
We had a great time! Celebrated my wife’s 60th Birthday. She loved it! The food was very good, service was great, and drinks were reasonably priced. Would definitely do again the next time we are in Sydney.
Not what we paid for ☹️
Kathryn_S, Mar 2023
Boat arrived half an hour late- overcrowded- paid for premium window seat had constant flow of people in and out of the door beside us blocking our view. Food not great entree was cold. Service was difficult to many people not enough staff. After late start raced to be back on time. Not impressed with the overall night.
Breathe taking views while sipping on your drink

The ambiance of the harbour at night was lovely.The food was delicious. Service was quick. The two hours was just enough time to eat and head upstairs for the 360 degree views
Wonderful experience
Susan_D, Mar 2023
It was surprise gift for my son on our first night of our Sydney weekend. Seeing the night lit views along the return trip was amazing. Though I do recommend purchasing the gold ticket, (which I didn’t know of), which gives you choice of drinks with each course, looked well worth it after seeing other passengers having it. (In comparison to purchasing)
Extremally poor planning & communications
Boma_T, Mar 2023
Boat was not at second location on Circular Quay Wharf 6 departure at 7:30pm. tired calling the phone number and got no answer. Couldn't find the boat but was still charged for the cruise and a refund was not honored or issued.
Great dining & cruising experience
Kevin_G, Mar 2023
Food was good but steak a little overcooked for what we requested but enjoyed it. The views you get while cruising were fantastic.
Lovely dinner cruise with good food!!
Sharon_G, Mar 2023
Loved my server Laura. Didn’t love being seated next to the outside door which was constantly being opened and not closed properly. brrrrr…. The biggest problem was that I couldn’t understand the offboarding announcement and I told off at the wrong place. They should make it very clear which location is offloading first. It cost me a huge taxi bill to get back to my hotel.
Great harbour views. Good...

Jacob_S, Mar 2023
The food tasted amazing and was a generous portion. The drink selection was nice too. The service was excellent as well.
If you want to see Sydney light up at night, this is a great way to see it.
Rose_N, Feb 2023
The views of Harbour bridge, Opera house, Luna park were awesome. Our waitress was delightful, the entertainment was great. The food was ok.
Great experience dinner cruise
Andi_G, Feb 2023
Good food, nice ambiance, friendly staff, very recommended, we have window seat, enjoy sydney from our table.❤️
Great views, good food, stressed staff
Emily_S, Feb 2023
Great views and amazing experience. Me and my partner weren’t seated by the windows, but the ability to move around the ship and walk onto the decks more than makes up for it. Food was pretty good, but service was average. No fault to the servers though, as they seemed very busy. Great experience but don’t expect fine dining.
Not exactly as billed
Glenn_H, Feb 2023
This should be marked as not accessible for those with mobility issues. To get to dinner you are required to climb two sets of stairs. Although the staff was accommodating, we ended up having dinner in the bar on the ships main deck. The tour was also three hours, not the two quoted as the duration depended on where you embarked. To fill in the time, we went in a circle for a half an hour.
Sub par

Ship was 30 minutes late, it was another 45 minutes before we were even served water, food was terrible
Dinner cruise
KIM_S, Feb 2023
Wait staff was slow and we were bypassed several times. We were a party of three and two got served and one waited for their courses. The meal of steak was like leather. Cruise itself was very pretty.
Great setting but spoilt by poor service
Ann_W, Feb 2023
The boat was supposed to pick us up at 19:30 but was 30 minutes late, so a lot of waiting about as you had to arrive 20 minutes early. The ambience, music and setting were great, what could be better than cruising around Sydney Harbour watching the sun set? However, the evening was spoilt by really poor service. We had to wait 35 minutes for our first course as our order had been lost! The food on the whole was ok but the beef in the main course was a bit a tough. Such a shame.
We really enjoyed the...
Linda_K, Feb 2023
We really enjoyed the Harbour Dinner cruise. It was very relaxing and the view was beautiful once the sun set both from the window table and spending time outside the front and back of the boat. The weather was perfect. Dinner and service was very nice. Would recommend!
Great dinner cruise
Raghunath_K, Feb 2023
Perfect cruise and wonderful dinner! The staff was great and the musical entertainment first class! The dinner cruise highlighted Sydney’s beautiful skyline by night
Night time delight
Jayson_W, Feb 2023
This was the first dinner cruise we have been on, and it was perfect. The check in process however was a little average. No sign near wharf 1 to say where to sign in. The food, entertainment & staff were friendly and very attentive. Being able to move around the boat freely was nice. An experience we will remember & recommend.
David_B, Feb 2023
The food was good but it along with the service was very slow. We didn’t get our dessert until we were close to docking in Circular Quay. The cruise ship was nice but the entrainment could be better.
