4/5

Service: Service was really good, no issues at all.

Product: All things considered the meal was probably only ok. It's very expensive for what it is, as the experience lacks a bit of polish. Attention to detail is pretty important when you're offering fine dining packages at this price point. The cutlery probably shouldn't be from a cafeteria, the furniture and carpet should be clean and modern not tired and worn out, you'd probably expect fabric serviettes, little stuff like that to make the feeling a bit more luxurious to match the premium price tag. The plates were generally a little overcooked and seemed as though they'd been waiting in a warmer for too long for service. I'd stress that overall it wasn't bad, the service was great, and our experience was mainly positive, it's just it's not polished enough for the $200 per head asking price. Keeping in mind there is a lot of fine dining options in Sydney (some with great views) at this price point. Thanks for the cruise.

Service: Easy boarding process, very welcoming. Nice start to the evening with sparkling wine and canapes on the upper deck. Our waitress was very good and attentive as was the maitre d. Music was good.

Product: The meal was generally excellent. However we felt it was very rushed at the end when desert and coffee had still to be served with less than 10 minutes to docking. Also the fillet steak was sinewy and not up to the standard of the rest of the meal. We gave this feedback on the evening.To get a relaxed meal the cruise probably needed to be about 30 mins longer.

Service: there was hardly anyone on the boat but the service was slow - had to look for staff to order drinks - we were requested to do our last drink order at 9pm as the staff member had to sort out all the accounts prior to us disembarking at 10.30pm and as mentioned there were hardly any patrons on the boat

Product: The food was fine, nothing special. One main (salmon) came with hardly any veg compared to other dishes sighted (carrots missing?)

Staff were friendly but some were obviously new and learning on the job, so service was not as attentive as it could have been.

Not as good as last time. The vivid lighting on the outside of the ship detracted from the internal viewing experience. Staff were OK, but not great, they could have sold us much more to drink, if they have efficient waiting staff. Also there was a very loud party table which staff didnt try and "tone down" so it was not a great experience.

Service: Having been on just about every CC cruise over the years (including Fiji several times, Murray River and Thursday Island) we have a very high view of the quality of the cruise and more importantly perhaps, the CC personnel, both in administration and on the water.

Product: The dinner was excellent, with a good choice of entrée and the steak I had for the main course was cooked to perfection(medium rare) and was very tasty. Service was very attentive without being too intrusive. On the down side, we followed the directions in your email and sat down at the end of the wharf (I am 88 and have had a recent leg operation)and was eventually told that we had to exchange our email for tickets. This, my wife Eileen did but by this time the queue was in full flight to board so we were last on board. Just a suggestion, either add a sentence to your email pointing out that one needs to pick up tickets or to have a portable desk at the wharf to process confirmation emails there

Service: We had paid $25 a head for drinks - had to go to the bar to get our own or flag a waitress to get a drink. The main meal veges eg peas, cherry tomatoes, potatoes, to the meat eg salmon, steak, were almost non existent and looked ridiculous on the plates- if you are going to be stingy get smaller serving plates. the desert was great. The singer was good but took far too many breaks.

Product: This is my second cruise - I went last November and couldn't fault it - hence my coming back. Loved the cruise side of it. Very disappointed the service and food was so poor this time.

Service: We did a 2015 Vivid Cruise, it was excellent. So unfortuently we returned with others to experience a 2016 Vivid Cruise. The weather was very bad and the Vivid lights had been cancelled for the night of our cruise. We were not given the option of rescheduling our cruise to a more suitable night. The outcome was a cruise that staff told us we could not even access the outer decks. The windows were fogged up, Vivid lights were not on, so there was no view. While the food was good, the night was reduced to a very overpriced meal experience. I would never recommend booking these cruises ahead without a good understanding of the weather conditions for your chosen night. Captain Cook Cruises made no allowances for their customers, despite having plenty of warning about the evening weather and cancellation of Vivid Light conditions.

Product: These cruises should not go ahead unless the weather conditions allow for reasonable access to the outer decks. Some rain is reasonable, a huge rain and storm event is not. Seeing the harbour from the water, and the lights of the Vivid Festival was the whole point of these cruises. I would never recommend these cruises without a good understanding of the weather conditions for your chosen night. Captain Cook Cruises made no allowances for their customers, despite having plenty of warning about the evening weather and cancellation of Vivid Light conditions.

Service: Everything worked out just fine with booking and joining the dinner cruise.

Product: We booked the cruise to enjoy the lights of Vivid but had to keep running out the back because the glass windows are so darkly tinted! The meal was excellent but the cruise really wasn't what we had hoped for as far as the lights went.

We would have rather had a boat with clear windows.

Service: The menu...my wife specifically asked for lightly cooked salmon. Waitress was diligent. Kitchen fouled up. I enjoyed my dinner. Other patrons were standing in line only to see the other vessel depart. Just poor communication. They were turned away for a rebook the nest night. They could have been accommodated on our cruise...lots of empty chairs. Empathy needed, considering the cost and hassle of getting there, parking etc. I had to pay for my cranberry drink as I'm non alcoholic. My wife enjoyed a free arrival drink. No more gripes I promise.

Product: Loved the slow cruise, the sights of Vivid etc. Staff were wonderful, especially our waitress, Afro American young lady. She's a credit to your company. The music was great, quality of the ship and dining facilities was top class. The staff made a fuss about my wife's birthday and that it was our 10th anniversary. Even mentioned by the lead singer. Nice touch. Sparklers with the dessert made it special. Thanks for a good night over all. James de Klerk

Service: The Cruise, service and assistance was excellent. We solely visited Sydney for the Vivid Lights and the cruise. We were disappointed with the lights. We are from Mackay in North Qld. and expected much more. The Sydney Harbour Bridge was very poor whilst the Opera House was excellent. We know this is not your expertise and not your show, however should your Management have meetings with the organizers maybe our comments might help for next year. We thought the boats on the river stole the show.

Product: Excellent is all we can say, in every aspect, cruise, staff, assistance, just wonderful, thank you for such a great time.

I would not recommend this to a friend as I was disappointed.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank for your very positive feedback regarding our Gold Dinner cruise for our food and amazing service. We were disappointed to read your comments relating to the décor as the Sydney 2000 has recently been renovated and we are disappointed that they ambience did not meet your expectations. During VIVID we do have the logo attached to the side of the vessel which has minimum impact on the internal views. We always recommend our customers make their way to the Star Deck which is an open area on top of Sydney 2000 which has 360° views of the Harbour.

Service: We have been on many Captain Cook cruises with friends, family and visitors from overseas and interstate and always love them particularly on the Sydney 2000.Staff are always friendly and service is great. Unfortunately as my husband started to board the gangplank shifted suddenly and his foot/toes were stuck underneath it and his toes were hurt. We boarded without anyone making a fuss of him and went upstairs to the roof for our welcome drink/viewing of lights at Darling Harbour. We were given our drink and then were not told what was happening next. My son in law had to go back downstairs to find out where we were to dine etc. This situation has never happened before. Felt like we had just been left despite it being a Gold Cruise and was supposed to be the top of the range option for cruises. It was only when we were seated at our table that the manager on duty inquired how my husbands foot was and asked if he would like any first aid etc. He was wonderful and said he had heard about it. We had a lovely Gold Dinner despite the crushed shoe and very sore toes which are still quite bruised.

Product: The Gold dinner cruise service, food and wine were just wonderful.

The match between the food and wine was all explained to us as each course came out and we really enjoyed everything that was provided. We would do this again.

Service: Overall the cruise was lovely. Great entertainment, food and service. If we book again (and we probably will), it will be for the cruise itself and not to see anything in particular.

Product: The Vivid aspect of the cruise was a little disappointing. There were only a couple of major displays (moving and changing projections on the Opera House, Museum of Contemporary Art and the Harbour Bridge) visible from the boat (we had window seats). The rest of the light display was rope lighting on other boats and basic coloured light projected onto a few buildings. We appreciate that CC were participating in Vivid by posting a huge lit sign on either side of the boat, but unfortunately it caused a lot of light pollution which obstructed our appreciation of the other displays (kind of like the difference between looking at the night sky in the city vs the country). Overall the cruise was lovely. Great entertainment, food and service. If we book again (and we probably will), it will be for the cruise itself and not to see anything in particular.

We boarded at Circular Quay and it was lovely but when lots more people boarded at Darling Harbour the aircon couldn't keep up. But to the credit of the staff; I was fanning myself and someone asked if I was hot and then adjusted the air vents and it was much more bearable after that.

Lady spoke little English and eventually provided information. Your booking process, and communication. You can do it better

Product: Only 3 couples boarded boat at circular quay. On a boat that would seat 100-200 people. There were 6 people in total. 2 of which sat right next to us less than half a meter away. Seriously. An entire boat and they're seated right next to us. Music was poor. Not sure who your market is, however being 40. I'm pretty diverse.

The waiter was picking up bread rolls from the tables with his hands and handing them back out with tongs. Food was good. Couldn't get waiters attention to get drinks. So drinks package was useless.

Service: All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Product: I did not read the advertising material well and thought wine [as well as the introductory glass of champagne] was included in the price.

Service: Extremely enjoyable night, great way to take in the beautiful sights of Sydney Harbour. The dinning and amenities were absolutely immaculate, everything on board was very well kept (including the staff). I loved how we could access the outside top deck, it was amazing sipping a glass of wine under the fairy lights and soaking in the priceless views.

Product: From the moment we stepped aboard we were greeted by an abundance of friendly staff, which teamed with the live singer created a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. The food was delicious, for the amount we paid for tickets the serving portions could have been a little bigger though (that's my only negative feedback). Highly recommend.

Service: Loved it as much as the other 3 times we have done it over 14 years! Thought as with a lot of other things that it may have slipped a little but it hasn't. Look forward to taking other UK visitors on board in the future to show off our wonderful Harbour. We also appreciated the personal greetings from your staff and entertainer as we disembarked. Well done.

Product: What a wonderful night out yet again - great wine, the meal was superb and I am still remembering the flavour of that steak!! Loved the trout and desserts as well. Have danced in the past but the Monday night was probably a different atmosphere than a Friday or weekend. Service was superb - we could not fault it and were made to feel special. Thank you again.- until the next time.

Hi, we lost our professional photos as they we were taken from our table while we were up on the top deck. Scott, the duty manager did an amazing job turning the situation around. He told us he would sort the issue. The next day he called me to let me know that he would retrieve the photos. On Monday, I was able to collect our photos rom the Captain Cook office in Darling Harbour. Thanks so much to Scott for turning this around. Brilliant Service. A Fabulous staff member who really delivered :)) THANK YOU TO SCOTT

Service: Food and service on board were fantastic. Unfortunately the problems we encountered before we boarded let us down. I organised 27 people Aust wide to do this and was told those who wanted the drink voucher @$25 were to pay cash before we boarded etc. 24 of us lined up before 7.30pm as instructed when I booked only to be told by the rude lady at the box office that everyone in our group had to buy this drink package or none at all???? Then when I finally explained we were never told about this!!!! we all proceeded to hand over our $25 cash (as instructed when I booked) and we were then told creditcard only!! How embarrassed was I? Everything I'd been told and emailed out to everyone was the opposite, it was a bit like Fawlty Towers really. Obviously a communication break-down with your bookings office and the actual cruise. Once on board everything else was great.

Product: Again, food, drink and music act were A++, but our experience before boarding was extremely poor.

I booked this Dinner Cruise for a very special occasion for 8 family members, 4 of whom reside overseas. We were not disappointed and I would highly recommend the Captain Cook Dinner Cruise. I booked all the upgrade options, gold, upper deck, guaranteed window seating, etc... Well worth the additional cost for a special occasion and I'd do the same again. The youngest in our group was 22 and the eldest 81 and there was only praise from all, no complaints.

Service: Service was quite good but the service of alcohol was frugal. Unlimited beer wine and soft drinks were included in the cost but we were only offered 2 drinks through the duration of the cruise. Considering the cost of the cruise and it was Valentines Day just feel disappointed.

Product: Valentines Day evening Cruise not long enough - cruise late leaving 7.45pm (due to leave at 7.30) and were back at Circular Quay at 9.30pm and then back to King Street Wharf before 10.00pm. I thought the cruise would be a 3 hour cruise minimum. In conclusion would be reluctant to use Captain Cook cruises again. Happy to chat personally about my concerns on *Personal details removed by Feefo*. Thank you

The only thing that was slightly off-putting was that we could order decent straight Gin for free, but if we wanted to add Vermouth, it would have been considered a Martini and would cost something absurd (I think $18). That was a bit ridiculous and penny-pinching on what was otherwise a top-shelf cruise.

Service: Everything was excellent, and the food was great too. Only thing we didn't like was the photos/camera guy who took photos of the group without asking permission, then tried to sell them to us. Most of our group can't speak English, and were confused about whether the photos were free, or what was the deal, then we needed to explain the deal, and that that needed to pay themselves. It was unwanted stress.

Product: Food quality was excellent. Only issue was that I ordered Halal for the majority of our group, at $15 extra per person. Then, everyone was given what looked like a standard menu, and we had to tell everyone which dishes were and which weren't Halal. We paid about $500 extra for Halal, and I'm not really sure where that money went, because we were still given a menu with non-Halal options. For a big group, $15 per head extra for Halal ends up being a lot of money, when we're already spending $100+ per person, then we still have to explain to everyone what was and what wasn't halal. As I said though, food quality was great!

Service: Please refer to the below remarks.

Product: We have always chosen Captain Cook Cruises Gold Dinner as the best way to take in the breath taking city sights while enjoying First Class Dinner and amazing service and yes the service, flexibility, friendly staff made it very memorable as Captain Cook is our first choice in dining in for our overseas guests and family that visit and has been for special occassions. Our very 1st Captain Cook Cruise Top Deck was over 15 years ago. Your dine in Menu has a variety. Only thing I would maybe consider at each meal option is that our guests were German and didn't eat seafood for which some of their meals were exchanged for pasta or just a salad.

Service: The cruise portion was fine.

Product: The food for the dinner portion was good but the service was probably the worst I've experienced in many years. I ordered a coke, it took 45 minutes before it arrived, I saw it sitting on the bar for a very long time and, when it arrived, the ice had melted. I had to ask for more ice. The meal was slow in coming and the waitress left the dirty plates on our table for an hour or more. My wife had water to drink, the waitress only came by once in 2.5 hours to refill. I was very disappointed with the service.

Plus there was no warning to say 60 minutes left to ensure people are aware and ready to go. We where busy dancing then the boat just stopped and said everyone for circular quay must climb off. Again a very rushed and disorganized experience. Food was okay.

Service: Generally really good, found that we didn't know what to do at the dock, do we wait here and line up with everyone else, do we need to go to the counter and exchange our reservation slip for tickets. Just a little confusing when this is your first dinner cruise, but the staff were very helpful and sorted us out quickly.

Product: The boat was really nice, food was fantastic, entertainment was awesome and the staff very friendly.

The only thing that I would improve was that we found we spent long periods with empty glasses waiting for our waiter to come back and get us drinks. I understand they are very busy, but this was disappointing that we had to basically jump up to get their attention just to get more drinks. We had a drink package and it would have been nice to be able to go to the bar and get drinks as required on occasion rather than having to wait for the busy staff to get back to us.

Apart from that issue, we had a pleasant time on your vessel.

Service: Service was good but the food was all too rushed, we had almost finished our mains and hadn't even left the dock.....felt like I was on a short flight not a luxurious 3+ hour dinner cruise...

Product: Ocean trout entree straight out of the packet and thrown on a plate, nothing else, not even a wedge of lemon, very stingy. I Could have prepared something a little more decent. My chicken was pretty tasteless and overlooked. Overall, below average food. More RSL than 'Captains Dinner'.

Product: Music was too loud, unable to converse at the table. Musicians were not up on all songs and unable to finalise requests. We paid for a drinks package and we had to wait 15 mins before service - therefore we did not get our money's worth. Quite disappointing as we had previously been on a normal cruise at an earlier time and had thought it was of good value. Not the Christmas cruise, will not be going again. Sorry.

Service: Cruise fantastic. Just a comment on boarding. There is no clear instructions re where you are to board from. If there are different entrances for different bookings maybe better signage would stop people looking confused. Even if you listed the boarding area on the tickets - eg 6A or 6B. That might help !

Product: Excellent food and atmosphere. The only comment is the quality of the sound system. We were seated half way between stage and bar and could not understand a word the singer was saying during her dialogue. It wasn't so bad with songs, as you generally knew the songs and the words didn't matter.

The only thing I suggest is having someone from your company at the wharf. We had to be there 30 minutes before as stated on your booking. But the boat that was there before you was sending us all away. And I have no doubt people missed the boat. So I suggest a staff member there to check people in.

It seemed Everyone recieved an arrival drink apart from us. We ordered the food (trout for starter) but salmon was served but was assured by the waitress that it was trout... It was definitely salmon! We ordered a bottle of $65 dollar new Zealand sparkling that never arrived. I had to go up to the bar to find out that they didnt have any! It would of been nice if we were informed. I hoped this occasion was going to be special as it was my girlfriends birthday but we where both left very disappointed. Will not be recommending your captains cruise to any of our friends and family based on our experience. Many thanks Scott james

All of the staff were very professional in their attitude to all guests, the facilities were spotless and the quality of the food and drinks were up to the standards expected of a 5 star company.

Product: Cruising the worlds best harbour in one of the most luxurious tourist vessel with our close friendsa turned out to be a night to remember. If any fellow guests onboard the vessel were not 100 pc satisfied I would suggest they are not used to experiencing a world standard tourist attraction.

I had phoned the company in the morning to verify where and when my wife and I should join the cruise. I was told 7.30 pm adjacent to Sea Life Pier 26 darling Harbour. This was wrong and quite a long distance for a last minute dash to the other end of the pier. Especially as my wife has severe plantar faciitis. She was extremely distressed and had a panic attack. This was to be a special night for us, planned for several months from Adelaide. We had not had a holiday for several years. The night was ruined. The actual cruise was very well done and had good food and entertainment, but my wife was too distressed to fully appreciate the occasion.

With the gold menu it felt like we were rushed to get through all of the courses with not enough time between courses to enjoy the actual cruise and the views, and also to let our food settle. I would have enjoyed it more if the was a little bit longer break between courses. But on a whole very enjoyable. Thank you

2/5

Service: Not intimate or 5 star as it claims. More mass produced to maximise captain cook's profit margins. Feel like online advertisement for this cruise grossly mis-lead us on my birthday night. Would have rather spent the money on a restaurant near harbour and not on this cruise.

Product: The cost of the dinner did not reflect the service or thought put into meal. The dinner was far too over-priced for what was delivered, especially if you have food allergies. Mass production and tacky would be best to describe our experience. You will get a better dinner service and meal dining out at sydney harbour restaurants than on this cruise, for half the cost of the gold dinner. Though initial registration form requested input on food allergies, I do not believe any thought or pre-planning was put into this prior to dinner. More a mass produced meal, potentially pre-made to cater for all. Not worth money spent.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for your review of your cruise with us on Sydney Harbour. We were disappointed to read that the cruise did not meet your expectations. All the menu items are prepared and cooked on board and we are sorry if you felt that this was mass-produced as our Gold Dinner does rate very well with our clients. Our team had been advised of the food allergies and we are sorry that these do not meet your expectations. We do hope you still enjoyed your birthday celebrations on-board with our live entertainment too.

Kind Regards,

Service: The Cruise and service was good (Cruise undertaken on 30/08/15). The food was average. The post-cruise service (as per comments below) was disappointing. I will not be recommending Captain Cook as the preferred Sydney harbour cruise provider to clients and friends.

Product: One of our group got severe, debilitating, food poisoning after the cruise. We all had the same entrée and main - she was the only one who had the chocolate orange dessert. When we advised the Captain Cook office at Darling harbour the following day - your representative was dismissive of our concerns. This was very poor, as if other passengers on the night experienced the same food poisoning from the same dessert- this can result in being a reportable incident to the NSW Department of Health. I hope that Captain Cook Cruises undertook appropriate action in reporting the food poisoning incident.
