Service: I proposed to my girlfriend onboard and I could not of imagined a more.perfect setting. I really didn't know what to expect heading into the night but staff were absolutely amazing and did everything to make the night perfect. Amazing service and very personal which you don't get from a lot of people anymore. Will remember the night and the cruise forever.

Product: Excellent service and food/wine for the money. Not to mention the setting

Service: We paid for the 6 course premium meal but were given a five course meal ... As we had taken friends on this cruise previously it was disappointing not to be notified of the change.

Product: Value was there the last time...not so this time

Service: Nice Staff , polite and helpful. A bit regret of not having purchased the window seats. The meal was good, but not as good as expected. There were not enough of meat choices. Overall. it is a very great experience.

Service: This was a fantastic experience. Joanna, our waitress, was very informed regarding the meal and the wines. Her bubbly personality made the experience even better. Well worth doing.

Product: Cruising around Sydney harbour at night seeing the Opera House and the Bridge all lit up on a perfect summer night - well for the Brits [winter to the Aussies] - what else do you want to do - PERFECT way to spend an evening.

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
