High Tea thumbnail

All aboard for High Tea at Sea. Ladies and gentlemen tea is served, starting with a glass of pink bubbly, followed by a delicious selection of sweet and savoury treats and a choice of fine teas, all accompanied by million dollars views of Sydney Harbour. More Info ...

High Tea at Sea revives a great British tradition with a uniquely Australian flavour. Everyone loves to celebrate on this popular dining cruise. Girl day outs, kitchen teas, hen’s parties, baby showers, birthdays and charity events are all regulars customers, along with many visitors to Sydney. 

The party is started with a glass of pink bubbly which nearly always results in immediate and non-stop conversation. Your choice of fine tea is prepared as the tiered-platters arrive to tantalise the taste buds. Blinis topped with prawns, whole chocolate coated strawberries, mini savoury pastries and much, much more. Meanwhile the spectacular Sydney skyline glides by, viewed from the enormous picture windows throughout your spacious cruising restaurant.

Dress: We recommend Smart Casual

Service: The cruise itself was exceptional! Very good value for money and the tour was amazing. All staff on board were friendly and helpful. I only gave four stars as I found it confusing to find the ticket information. I had booked the cruise over six weeks prior, and so by the time the day came I had forgotten details (e.g. boarding time and location) which then was difficult to access on the website via mobile phone (particularly because it was a 'high tea' cruise.)
Product: Excellent! Great value for money. I have paid the same price to attend high tea on land!

As we were shown to our seats the waitress were there to take our order for tea and not long after that the food for the high tea was brought out.The only thing I would say is I think more savoury food than sweet
