Great experience, staff were friendly. Food was nice but could have been warmer. Had to ask for water and butter. Scenery was great although it was restricted by the roof from where we sat in the middle of the floor, esp when trying to see buildings during vivid. Wandering up on to the roof provided spectacular views.

Service: Awesome boat, great service from our friendly waiter. Food was superbly presented and very tasty. It was one of the highlights of our family trip to Sydney to see the lights of Vivid Sydney.
Product: I would recommend getting the Captains Dinner - and paying extra for a window seat. The windows are very big and the views are great!! The Captain's Dinner is served on the top floor. You can also walk up to the very top level to take perfect photos. Our family was in Sydney in early June/19.

Expensive trip and poor service . Food was only just ok. Everything felt rushed and unorganised. We had paid for the drinks package and never got offered any drinks only the complimentary ones. Seemed reluctant to give us a drink..had to show confirmation explaining this and waitress didn't seemed to understand a word! clearly language issues...whole experience embarrassing. Also would have preferred to have been in the same room as the entertainment..wouldn't recommend sorry

Service: We had a great night BUT we had bought the extra wine package with the dinner and there was no wine waiter and to get more than the first glass of sparkling wine required a lot of perseverance. The waiters available were all genuinely busy but the wine service or lack thereof let the whole experience down.

Warmly welcomed on board however, waiter didnt know that we had a dinner package which included drinks and wanted us to purchase our drinks (lucky I had my paperwork with me to confirm that we had drinks included!) also, had to keep asking to have water filled up during dinner.
Meals were nice however, 1 entree came that was wrong and had to be taken back and 1 dessert was wrong but we ate it instead of changing it as we had already done that with the entree.
Overall, disappointed with the meal and service :( as this was to be the highlight of our trip to Vivid in Sydney, cruising on the harbour with dinner on the first night of Vivid. It wasnt horrible - it just wasn't what we had hoped it would be.

L’accueil est correct.
Le navire est superbe.
Notre table était située du côté de la baie vitrée permettant d’avoir une vue imprenable sur la baie de Sydney.
Le menu, composé de 3 entrées, 3 plats et 3 desserts au choix est très copieux et goûtu.
Tout le long du repas, une chanteuse accompagnée de son pianiste, nous fait part de son répertoire varié.

Un grand bravo pour l’organisation de cette croisière 🚢

No complaints about the staff......they were pleasant and did their job well, but the cruise of viewing the vivid displays was a let down with the boat just going from Darling Harbour to Qircular Quey and back again about 3 times.......the cruise of 3 hours was far too long for what was on offer.........with a lot of passengers wanting to get off after about 2 hours at one of the visits to Circular Quey wharf, but we’re not permitted to do so........all had to wait till the boat returned to CQ about 10.30!!! The cruise did not live up to the hype!!!

Service: Having purchased the drinks package, I thought staff didn’t come round enough to check if we needed more drinks. Also the wine glasses were very small.
Product: Dinner was better the last time I went on the Harbour Cruise. Dinner was not hot enough. Drinks not free flowing enough with the drinks package.

Very poor service at start. We had a booking and it seemed when we boarded that they had no prior plan seat and just sat us wherever. We waited 10 minutes for a drink after order placed. My partner complained as to treatment and staff seemed to view it as a joke. The windows were extremely dirty, we paid money to have a window table. The automatic washer was activated and a third through cruise were then able to see through window. The waiter assigned after complaint was very attentive, but unfortunately we had already been subjected to bad service and were disappointed with experiece. We paid $350 for something and the $6 ferry service was equivalent in terms of view and harbour experience. Meal was average. Needless to say will not recommend.

The ship provides good clean facilities, the food is terrific and the outside areas which are easy to get to allow a nice relaxed alternative viewing experience.
The standout for our party was the amazing friendly and professional service and welcome we received from the ships staff especially our waiter Joey. That's the sort of service that keeps you coming back.
Thank You Captain Cook Cruises.

There was a mix up with our seating and you staff went out of there way to make sure we were happy with the result. They were extremely apologetic for the mix up and made sure we were happy. We enjoyed the experience and would do it again. Value for money was good. Maybe a little rushed at the end would have liked a bit more time to enjoy my coffee before we had to leave.

Service: Once finally on board the delayed vessel we had a fabulous time and I’d definitely do it again but pre-boarding was a big disappointment.
Vessel did not dock till after 7p but we had been told we would be boarding from 6:30pm. Lack of communication regarding delay, pre-arrival of ship, meant we were all wondering if our Xmas Eve dinner cruise would happen. Lack of seating area during this length of time meant many were tired and grumpy.
No clear queuing area - means people push in towards the front and others become cranky. This could easily be overcome with clear marking in the ground 👍
No communication from the crew (apologies or otherwise) even after ship had docked
Many staff but seemingly no action 😡
When the vessel finally arrived just after 7p boarding was for priority customers first... this lead to confusion as were all tired and hungry. There were so many lovely staff/waiters on board... just send a few down to those waiting and make a brief apology for the delay. Simple. Waiting around even longer was exacerbated by the fuel smell from the engines.
Food, service and entertainment on board were all excellent and dulled the pain of the initial frustrations. We were there to celebrate being married in the Captain Cook Cruise 20yrs ago so this initial start to the evening was a real disappointment and left us wondering if we should have come back. In the end, glad we did.

Service: We chose the window seating and the extra drink list. We were not disappointed. The seating was lovely with an incredible view throughout the cruise. The food was delicious. From the appetizers to the desserts everything arrived piping hot and very tasty. The beef tenderloin was perfectly done and the salmon was exquisite. The wait staff was prompt and always available for a refill. After dinner we went down stairs and danced the rest of the cruise. Although the choice of music may not be for everyone we enjoyed it nonetheless. The four of us had a fabulous time !! Thanks again

Service: I think I would take the harbor cruise without the meal. The food was okay but not great. The service was average, but I got tired of the waiter trying to force wine on us instead of bar drinks. For some reason he didn't like the fact that we wanted cocktails. In addition, they don't carry higher end liquor, just the minimum bar grade. On the positive, the boat was half empty so we had plenty of room to move around and enjoy the views from the upper deck. The music was a bit to "loungy", like it was trying to create some Love Boat image, but the singer was actually quite good.
Product: I initially purchased the Penfolds Gold but then realized that they would not accommodate dietary issues. I had to go back and forth with the office to get our cruise changed to the Captains dinner. Instead of a refund for the difference, we were given a bar credit. At the end of the night, we still had a credit which we consumed, but I was not happy with this.

Service: We had a family reunion dinner with Captain Cook Cruises, including a number of interstate visitors, only to find our guaranteed window seating only had 2 window seats and the table was positioned into the room, despite other tables that were longways across the windows, and was right next to the keyboard player and singer, thus making it impossible to communicate with each other.

As it was the smaller boat,which in itself was disappointing, moving our table was not possible. Very disappointing after highly recommending it after a prior cruise, and felt bad for some of our guests who had spent the money on our recommendation.
Product: The noise at our table was too loud, not the artists fault, but a flaw with the seating arrangements. We were not the only guests to request that they turn their amplifiers down, but it did not happen,

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for your review of your Captains Dinner Cruise. Our seating arrangement is designed to optimize our customers experience. When customers book a window table, the cruise director always strives to ensure the best possible views for the whole of the table. We apologise if this was not to your standards. Our entertainment is designed to provide an entertaining background to the conversations and ambience of this fine dining experience. However, please be assured we have forwarded your comments onto our entertainment manager.

Service: We enjoyed the service of the staff and the band was very good. The food was good but not excellent, the lamb shanks were very tough and not falling of the bone. They were not enjoyable to eat. A little more attention to detail would have made it a lot better. The photographer seemed like he was just doing a job and was not careful with the photos he was taking. If he had viewed the shots he had taken, he would have realized that they were not worth buying and he would have re taken the photos. we would have purchased more photos if the shots were decent.
Product: I felt the cost was a little high for the time we were on the dinner cruise. I expected the same amount of time as a Saturday evening. Our overseas guests enjoyed the cruise and the views but would have enjoyed a little more time on the harbour.

A good evening sailing around the harbour, we boarded at Darling Harbour to find people that had boarded at Circular Quay already eating their meals. Staff seemed rushed to get passengers to choose their food from the menu, service was also haphazard, we were nearly served our mains before our starters, had to ask for butter for our rolls.
Attention to detail and more of a structured approach would be great, I appreciate that there were quite a few aboard but not overbooked by any means.
Food was fine as again catering for a lot of people.

Dinner Cruise (9/9/18): We had an amazing time, and want to in particular thank our waitress Cecelia. A few waitresses attended our table and all were great, but it seemed that Cecelia was our designated waitress and she was our main contact with the wait team. It was my mother’s 65th birthday and the whole crew (including the musicians) made it special, with the wait staff telling the band to sing happy birthday, and co-ordinating it with the kitchen to have a cake and candle brought out at the same time. I realise that this is probably standard operating procedure, but it was executed perfectly, and there were also a whole host of smaller details too numerous to catalogue that just made the night perfect. The drinks came to our table quickly, our questions were answered with a smile, and everything was just smooth and relaxed and the ambiance created by the staff was spot on. Thanks for a great night.

Service: Service was reasonable although slow to renew drinks, possibly because we were on a pre-paid drinks package.
Product: The photos on your website display tables with white table linen and I thought the presentation of the table was much like a coffee shop or cafe rather than a premium dining experience that was advertised on the web page. It was overpriced for the food that was served. The pumpkin/sweet potato entree was quite plain with no flavour as was the beef noodle entree. The beef main was lovely, however the lamb shanks tasted so much like bottled mixed herbs that it was overpowering and my guest didn't eat it any of it. The dessert was coffee shop standard. The service was reasonable although service of drinks was slow (most likely because we were on a pre-paid bar package). We bought the premium drinks package and thought it included spirits - the website was a little confusing in that regard - that's the only reason we chose premium was because we thought it included spirits. So our drinks package really didn't cover the drinks we received as we ended up buying spirits because one guest has an allergy to wine. A few glasses of wine each for the rest of our party, I thought was overly expensive for the price of that package as well. The ladies toilets were dirty, with vomit in one toilet and no toilet paper in two of the three cubicles and the floor and area just looked dirty with water and toilet paper around the place on the floor. The views were amazing, but I must say I wish I had of chosen another cruise option. I feel it was advertised as a luxurious experience, which it was not.

We can assure you that all our products are sourced and prepared fresh so we were disappointed to read that this was not up to your standards. Please be assured your comments have been forwarded to our catering manager. We do try to maintain a warm environment for our passengers onboard, however with it being winter in Sydney and passengers able to access the upper deck on top of our vessel, a cooler temperature can be expected with passengers recommended to wear warm clothing as appropriate for the season. We display our cruise routes on our website for all our cruises to enable customers the opportunity to know where they will be cruising and what to expect, including where the cruise will depart and arrive to and from.

Once again, thank you for your review.

Kind regards,

Service: We have been on many dinner cruises around the world and this has to be amongst the best, if not the best.

The food is sublime, it would not be out of place in a high quality restaurant.

The waiter was friendly and attentive, without being in your face.

The vessel is well appointed and the views stunning.

I would thoroughly recommend this dinner cruise
Product: Great food, great atmosphere brilliant staff.

Absolutely nothing to fault at all.

Service: Food was fantastic, staff extremely friendly, views both from table and external are amazing, would recommend experience to friends and colleagues.
Only downfall was paying for drinks package and service of drinks was slow, paid for premium service which was lacking. Obviously also know now that Circular Quay is the location to start your cruise as Darling Harbour robs you of 1 hour cruise time, would of been nice to know this in advance or change the route so Darling Harbour is where the cruise finishes, therefore giving all passangers exactly the same cruise time !!!
Product: Food 5 Star
Drinks 3 Star, as above Premium service but lacked service, awaiting refills all night

Service: We have been on many a Captain Cook dinner Cruise and this was a Monday night and was a smaller gathering than usual.
We didn't find the service as attentive as in the past and thought maybe because it was a Monday and a smaller group that there wasn't the same energy from the staff.

We also paid extra for a Window seat but also saw a lot of window seats not being used and remembered in the past as a couple that being offered a window seat as a lovely gesture.

We have lovely memories of the Captain Cook cruises as I proposed to my wife on the top deck on New Years Eve.

We will definitely be back we were just a little disappointed.
Product: I think it's great value for money

Service: It just wasn’t a pleasant experience. Had a guest from overseas. The waitress was lovely but the drinks waiter insisted we have a bottle not two glasses and of course we left wine behind because I had to drive. My fault for not standing my ground, but he did keep insisting so we said yes to shut him up. The singer was awful, the singing was out of tune and drove my guest to the point he had to go outside. We did a lot of things during his three week visit and the dinner cruise was our worst experience. Sorry to say these things, in the end we were laughing it was so unpleasant.
Product: The food was adequate....

Service: We were welcomed onboard by friendly crew. The boat was beautifully presented and we were impressed with the paintings of the first fleet displayed on the staircase up to the dining area. We were given a window seat with a fantastic view of Sydney harbour and served an extremely tasty 3 course meal. Our food arrived at appropriate times throughout the trip and the food and beverage staff were very friendly and efficient. The boat travelled very smoothly and we barely felt like we were moving at all. The whole 2 hour trip was a truly great way to celebrate my birthday and I would recommend the cruise to everyone!
Product: I had salmon for starters, roast duck for main course and a delicious chocolate mouse for dessert. All theee courses were extremely tasty!

Everything was great. The reason a 4 rather than 5 staff didn’t know whether wines were dry or sweet. Requested a rose sparkling, and asked them to check first if it was dry / brut. If sweet bring the welcome sparkling. They brought the sweet but quickly changed it when I asked them.

I would definitely recommend captains dinner with upgraded wines.

We were a large group and we're welcomed on board the Starlight Dinner Cruise by friendly staff. The 3 course dinner was well presented and tasty. The vegetarian main could have been more interesting (quinoa veggie patties with steamed vegetables), but all other options were very good. Wait staff were very attentive for the first two hours of the cruise. Thanks for a great night.

Food average and fast service, band absolutely awful and far too loud, strip lights on the Windows made viewing of the Vivid lights difficult (the only reason we booked the cruise) AND you should pre explain that the boat is available to board from 7pm and the Kings Wharf is different from Bangaroo as we found several people waiting at the wrong pier. All in all a complete waste of an evening.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruise experience. The wharf location is listed on all Captain Cook Cruises correspondence throughout the booking. There is also a clear map to show customers a visual representation of the wharf location. As you are aware, finding a balance between dimming the interior lights completely to ensure great views of the skyline, in conjunction with safety standards is difficult to balance. Our aim is always to provide an extensive variety of food options maintaining the highest standards of quality. We always encourage guests to talk to the Cruise Director on board if they have any concerns, especially regarding food, drinks and service as they will be able to solve the problem immediately. Please be assured your concerns have been forwarded to our catering and hospitality manager.

The bar option is a waste of money. The wines are terrible only the sav blanc is drinkable. Was expecting something better. Should've bought the Gold Penfold Dinner again instead.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruise experience. We offer a range of bar packages, with a variation of prices resulting in a greater selection of beverage options available. All wines are also available for purchase if customers desire something other than the included products for their package.

Service: The cruise was overpriced for what we got.
The service was poor - staff botched the order and gave my husband the wrong dish. They were intrusive and 'hovering' at the beginning when we were not ready to order and absent when we tried to order drinks later on. We did the Captains dinner, which was supposed to be the premium experience, but the dinner was served cold and I've had better meat from a tin can. Strangely the premium experience does not include wine like the standard package does (so I have no idea how they can justify charging more and providing less). There was no views to speak of (we did the Vivid tour). The only good thing was the entertainment - the singer was lovely.

Service: The food and table service were average (some aspects even below average) overall. I had a steak (which was quite good) but the vegetables were well below expectations. My wife also said that her meal was 'pretty unappealing'. The attendant on our table seemed 'distracted', although the young lady who brought out some of our meal was much more enthusiastic.
Based on our experience I would be unlikely to recommend the experience to friends. We were also looking forward to the Vivid experience but have to say our taxi driver was correct in that it was a 'bit over-rated'. Best of luck for future cruises.
Product: Refer to my previous comments!
