Service: The meal was well prepared. I had the ravioli appetizer with the lamb shank and vegetables for my main course.The dessert was delicious, although I had to force down the Chocolate Roche as I was so full. The cruise of the harbour was beautiful.

We were also treated to a full moon rising behind The Bridge as we left Darling Harbour.

Product: It was a little pricey but worth the meal and the cruise.

Service: The food and waitress were great. Had a wonderful time although the singer was a little off key, but she warmed up at the end between Circular Quay to Darling Harbour. Will definitely do it again.

Product: Red, white wine and sparkling wine too expensive,

Service: Was a lovely smooth cruise.

However if I had known how old fashioned the interiors and 90% of the clientele where over 70 I would have booked a different cruise. I also had an issue with my salmon I sent it back and I happily received a near perfect salmon in its place.

Also the menu states if you write a review while on the boat you receive a prize. Not one member of staff knew what that was. Not helpful.

Would I book again? No.

Product: Over priced for what you are getting.

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....

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.
