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,

Caroline Robertson

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.

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.

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!

Special thanks to Karizza who really liked after us. Will definitely book again on our next visit to Sydney.

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.

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.

.

Sunset dinner cruise with steak and lobster was a gift. Was upgraded by CC to starlight cruise and told on board couldn't have steak or lobster due to upgrade as we were getting longer on the boat!!

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for your review and as per our email response.We did upgrade your booking at own cost and do apologize for our apparent failure to meet your expectations which appears to be a breakdown of process on board.We do hope that you can take our offer as per our email.

Service: The booking staff was helpful but could have been a bit friendlier.

Product: The fact that you are out on the harbor is great but the food and entertainment were both terrible. The entertainer was an amateur at best (and off key) and we expected a better experience for the price we paid. The food was dry and flavorless. Save your money and do something else as this was not worth it!

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for your review and we were very disappointed to read your comments. There was nothing reported to our Cruise Director on the night, which we encourage all our guest to discuss any issues with them at the time as these can always be amended immediately.We are very sorry we were not able to meet your expectations as this is one of our most popular and well rated cruise experiences.

We do value your feedback and thank you.

Service: Young staff do need a bit more training - not their fault, inexperience and not shown e.g. pouring a wine straight into a glass without showing me the label - in case not the right wine, not offering the customer the choice of an itemised bill - small things. Your wait staff need looking after they are the front line of your service.

Fantasic night had by all our group food, band and staff were outstanding. The only complaint I could make is we boarded late and as we boarded from Darling Harbour we were last to get off boat and the bar closes 30 minutes prior to embarking this all did not go down well with my staff lucky I had a back up plan in Darling Harbour after Cruise apart from that all good.

Product: We came back from the US after an excellent experience 2 years ago. Wife said if we are in Sydney we are doing it again! Even with the more favorable exchange rate it cost more but we didn't care. The food was disappointing and the "band" pretty lame. Service was great but never again.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for your feedback and we were delighted to welcome you back again. We were disappointed to read your comment and as our menu and entertainment service and quality has been improved since you last travelled with us. We always encourage our clients to talk with our Cruise Directors on board if anything is not meeting your expectations and we are very sorry that you felt we did not deliver.

Service: They told us to be at the ferry at 6:30pm but in reality, the boat did not arrive until 6:55pm anyway. We waited in the wind and rain, although undercover.

Product: I expected less but blown away by the experience on board. I had Japanese executive visitors and they could not rave enough about it. We all reminisced our overseas cruises and the fine dining. We were at first seated near the piano beside 2 big windows. We asked to be moved away from there and beside the bigger picture windows. They did manage to move us after the guests have boarded from Darling Harbour and it made the experience even better. Joey our waited was very good and attentive. The food was very good, the three of us pick each one on the menu and very satisfied.

Service: The cruise itself was just lovely. When making the reservation and trying to determine the best cruise option for our group of 4, I did find the customer service folks on the phone a bit abrupt and quite rushed. However, every staff member on cruise night was wonderful.

Product: We had an absolute lovely time! Enjoyed the music, the sail, the staff, the dinner and, of course, the weather. We paid for a few upgrades - the window seat was definitely worth it. The one thing that I think the cruise could perhaps work on is the desserts. I really enjoyed my dinner, but I don't think people at our table were really wowed by the desserts - they were good, not great. Other than that, enjoyed the evening tremendously!

Service: This was our first night of our vacation. This was to be the kick off to the 2 week adventure that we had been planning for so long. We were celebrating my parents 63rd wedding anniversary (Dad is 90 and Mom is 82), my husband and I's 34th wedding anniversary and our 18 year olds high school graduation. We were so looking forward to this grand adventure.

We had a party of 7, and were seated right in front of the speakers. The music was so loud that we could not converse at the table except when the singer took her breaks. She was a good singer, the speakers were just way too loud. We asked numerous times to have them turned down, and they eventually did, but nominally. My dad told the waitress that he would like to place a drink order and she never came back to take the order. We had to get up and go ask for the drink. The appetizer was served to 6 of us. We waited, while the employee who was helping our waitress, served our 7th appetizer to another table, and never returned with one for us. We waited and waited, finally getting up from the table and following the waitress to get our 7th dish. Then the main dish, all the dishes were mixed up. Seriously, I could understand if the waitress had not written down our order, but she wrote down every course! How do you mess that up. Again, we waited and watched other diners finish their dinners and start on dessert before we even got our dinner right. By this time, I was extremely frustrated. I am sure that other diners could sense our frustration. After all, we were sitting front and center. They had to look past us to see the entertainment. To his credit, the manager came to our table to try to mitigate the damages, but by that time, our evening had already been ruined. He offered free drinks (which we did not want, none of us have more than one drink), he asked what we had ordered for our main - I told him "Honest to God, I will eat any main that you bring me right now", he offered additional desserts - which we declined. We were upset enough, that most of us didn't even finish what we had. He gave us the photos that were taken that night, free of charge. I do appreciate the effort that he made, it was just too late. In addition, once the waitress realized how upset we and especially I was, she avoided my end of the table completely. To the extent that when she was clearing the table, she went to the opposite end and asked my son to pass my dirty plate to her. Very childish. We were unable to enjoy the sights of the harbor, we were too busy just trying to sort out our meals. It was definitely the lowest point of our two weeks in Australia. I will definitely recommend our friends visit Australia. I will definitely not recommend our friends use Captain Cook Cruises!

Product: See above
