Service: We were very impressed with the food, wine and service on our recent dinner cruise. Our only complaint is we were not advised we could pick up the cruise from Circular Quay. We were staying at Central Railway and, because it was raining on the night, had to travel via taxi and then stand in the rain at the King St. Wharf for at least half an hour waiting to board. Fortunately, our on-board experience was fantastic and tempered our original frustration. We made our booking on the phone and feel we should have been given the option of boarding at Circular Quay, which would have been much more convenient as we could have just caught the train and waited undercover.

Product: The 6 course degustation menu and the accompanying Penfold's wines were very good

Service: Our waitress, Veronika, was amazing. She was so fun, and courteous, and attended to our every need. She even arranged a little extra gnocchi for myself and my party because that is our favorite dish on your cruise.

This was our third time taking the gold penfold's dinner cruise, and I have to say it's the best yet, and that's solely because of Veronika.

In addition to being impressed by Veronika, the lounge singer for the evening was much better than the one we had the previous two times we took this cruise. I really enjoyed her performance!

Service: Boat was running late 12/3. Quick load and quick trip to Darling harbour which meant that some service standard dropped of. Paid for window and bar. Got a bottle of NZ white which I was told later that it was not included in package. Staff embarrassed after that resulted in not coming near us for the remainder of trip, no further drinks no offer of coffee etc. Travelled before and all good but this trip timetables ahead of service and value for the extra money paid was not good at all. But hopefully we can learn that even though we are running late, the following customers need to feel important too!

Product: Service was down but meal was good. I spent extra but ended up with less than the standard passengers, an oversight I hope

Service: I took my family for a dinner cruise while they were visiting Sydney. The service was both efficient and friendly.

The food was delicious and good portion sizes for a three course dinner.

We were not very lucky with the weather (rain and wind!) but regardless, we had amazing views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. We were at the other end from the entertainment, so didn't hear much but that was great for us as we got to have a real catch up.

Product: The Club dinner cruise was fantastic. I have rated 4 stars out of 5, only because I felt it was slightly over priced for what you get.

3/5

This was our fourth cruise doing the Captains Gold Dinner Cruise and while it is typically one of our 'must do' experiences in Sydney, on this occasion it was let down in a couple of areas. Firstly. I'd like to point out that the food, wine and dinner service were excellent, no problem at all there. The issues for me were that for the second time in a row, the cruise boarded ~1/2 hour late with people then jostling to get on board whether you had priority boarding or not. This came down to there being no real system or signage to deal with it. The next thing that was a bit off was that we were sat next to a large group that included small children. Normally this wouldn't bother me at a typical family restaurant but when you're paying top dollar for an intimate evening with a candle lit degustation dinner, some soft romantic music and a cruise on Sydney harbour, I have to say it didn't do much to enhance the atmosphere. Lastly, I couldn't help noticing a couple of your male staff members openly leering and making what I'm sure they thought were private comments to each other at some of the younger female passengers as we disembarked at Circular Quay. I made sure they knew I wasn't impressed and they quickly scurried back inside. Would I do it again? Probably, but it needs a bit of polish to get it back to standard.

Cruise was good - started off a bit rocky in being late - due to a big ship leaving - but knowing that - they should have arranged to get in earlier.

Food was really nice & so was the alcohol package.

Entertainment wasn't much although was good that they sang Happy Birthday or acknowledged peoples celebrations which I thought was a good idea.

The event coordinator/ director came around a couple of times to check we were having a good time - although once again as it was a Captains Dinner therefore the Captain should have come to visit us in uniform even if it wasn't the real captain I think being in uniform & allowing photos with the guests would have been an extra.

Overall a pleasant night out.

I had never done this before, and after researching the other cruises on offer, I am very glad we chose yours. The staff, entertainment and food were all of excellent standard. The staff have been well picked and do you proud as a business. There was an incident where a couple become decided to move to a table near us and have a dispute with inappropriate language, and our waitress did her very best to help than the young lady in charge offered them a better viewing room and led them elsewhere. The way these two staff members handled it was terrific and others did not even notice. Well done, and I will certainly look at using your services again if I am ever in Sydney.

Service: When I seen the John Cadman sitting on the dock I was very disappointed at the condition of the boat, as it was a very special occasion for my husband and I. However, when I seen the Sydney 2000 pull into the Pier I was very pleasantly surprised that we were on this vessel as opposed to the John Cadman, which looks as though that it's in much need of a restoration.

The food on our cruise was fantastic, the service second to none (quick, efficient and very friendly). The boat was very clean inside and overall it was a very good experience and one to remember. I will also hopefully book a lunch cruise soon around Sydney Harbour.

We had a great night and the duration of the cruise was also adequate enough to enjoy the meal and sights at our leisure.

Well done and thankyou.

Kind regards,

Service: My wife ended out honeymoon with a dinner cruise on Sydney Harbor, it was a perfect ending to the trip. The staff was friendly, piano player played a variety of music at acceptable levels, the food was fantastic and the views were incredible.

Product: Well worth the money for the extra level of service and a far less crowded cabin!

We had 19 immediate family on board for my wife and my combined 70th birthdays - 140 years in all. Nearly every grandchild has already mentioned that it was the best night of their life. The food was excellent as well. My two year old grandson, whose bedtime is 7 pm, boarded the boat at 7.30 pm , and we wondered how long he would last. To our surprise, he stayed dancing on the dance floor until the very end. I lost count of the number of people taking a video of him. He brings such delight to us all.

Service: A really lovely evening.... Great food, good entertainment... only suggestion would be to not just have slow songs, having some more upbeat ones would have rendered the cruise perfect....

Product: On the more expensive side, but a really enjoyable evening....

We were on the cruise as a work/birthday function and it was fantastic. Every part of the experience was lovely. The staff were so polite and the band playing were very good also. The entire night was a great success for all of us.

Service: What a great way to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. Our dinner cruise was perfect, from the moment we boarded the vessel, to being escorted to our table by the window (highly recommended), to being waited on by young enthusiastic staff. And to finish off a perfect night, champagne outside on the top deck with spectacular views of the worlds greatest Harbour City.

Thank you Captain Cook!

Product: Excellent value for money, the best Restaurant views of the Harbour in Sydney.

Service: A great evening, the food and wines were excellent as was the service. The musician that played throughout the evening was very easy on the ear, appropriate tunes and pitched at a volume suitable for the occasion. We felt as though we were special first time guests even though this was our second dining cruise and all of our requests were met with a smile and positive attitude. Special thanks to Karizza who really liked after us. Will definitely book again on our next visit to Sydney.

Product: Great value for money, a harbour cruise, entertainment, superb food, wines and service in a well priced package, what's not to like!

Service: No departure from Circular Quay was a big disappointment, effectively cutting the cruise by 30 minutes, and reducing the impact and excitement for my international guest of leaving from between two of Sydney's icons, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

We were served by a nice young lady who explained that she was learning, but after the initial courtesies and ordering our meal, it was very hard to get service.

The food was generally good, but I ordered the Lemon and Lime Tart for desert and found that the pastry was stale, I couldn't eat it. I informed the waitress when she cleared our plates, but got no acknowledgement, nor an apology.

Overall my guests enjoyed the cruise, but I felt the service was not up to the same level as I have experienced from you previously.

Product: The cost was relatively high and the service relatively average

Service: I thought that the cruise is overrated. I paid extra for a window seat, extra for drinks and then was only told that night that I was only allowed to have certain drinks with the extra fee.

Food was not great in quality. Feels like your at a 80's wedding reception. The singer on board sung love songs that put you to sleep. I personally expected better for what I payed. Captain cook cruises need to update with today's moving times as this industry is competitive in order to survive on a long term basis.

Just being honest.

Product: Overrated and expensive for what I paid. Quality of food poor.

it wasn't for us really. the service of staff was excellent, views wonderful, lovely ship, the food fairly good but not excellent. the entertainer seemed lovely but it was very dated for us. i think the whole experience needs to be more comtemporary for our age group (40 and 48). i think it would appeal more to tourists and older customers (which seemed to be the majority). it was a lovely evening but i think, given our time again we would choose to spend that amount of money of a fancy restaurant to celebrate a birthday.
