Sydney loves an indulgent high tea, and with good reason. At Captain Cook Cruises we gave it a modern setting and created the High Tea at Sea. Pink bubbly, tiered platters of sweet and savoury treats and a harbour vista that even British aristocrats would find hard to believe.
Set Sail for High Tea at Sea
There’s always time to indulge in a great tradition
Revive and re-imagine this British tradition with a uniquely Australian twist. Celebrate a special occasion, catch up with friends, book your hen’s party, baby shower, birthday or charity event on Sydney’s ultimate high tea.
We start each High Tea celebration with an Australian glass of pink bubbly, followed by your choice of fine tea. The High Tea experience becomes distinctly local once the tiered platters arrive, topped with sweet and savoury delicacies unlike any other restaurant in the city. Blinis topped with prawns, whole chocolate coated strawberries, mini savoury pastries and more. Cruise in style, feast like a Queen on a warm summer afternoon and bask in the spectacular Sydney skyline.
Special Menus and Dietary Requests: Most menus contain vegetarian and gluten free options, however requests for special diets, substitutions and modifications of our public Dining Experience menus will be politely declined. All meals are prepared fresh onboard. Due to the nature of cruising we have limited time to prepare and serve our menus. Special menus may operate on special event dates. View our menus for full details.
