Starlight Dinner thumbnail

Sydney's best value dinner cruise. Enjoy contemporary three course a la carte dining and the mesmerising views of Sydney by night ...

Sydney Harbour is the heart of Sydney, enjoyed by both locals and visitors, from all cultures, religions and backgrounds. Super ship "Sydney 2000" was designed with this in mind.

The ship's design includes three restaurant decks, five private dining rooms, cocktail areas on every deck plus a 360 degree open Star Deck on the top of the vessel. Up to five different dining and entertainment options can operate independently on the vessel on any given night.

The Starlight Dinner package is the entry level dinner option at a great price. With this package you could be seated on a deck without entertainment or be upgraded free to one with. No matter where you are seated you will enjoy the same quality contemporary Australian cuisine and access to the Star Deck as all our passengers.

For the romantic movie buffs, the bow of the vessel is usually accessible to passengers. Hint - often I am the only voyeur who can see you down there, so if you give me a wave I'll avert my eyes accordingly.

Also available at additional cost

If you like this cruise you may also like the Captains Club Dinner which includes a more comprehensive menu, guaranteed live band and dancing. The Captains Club Dinner Bar package also includes a comprehensive selection of Australian wines and imported ales.

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.
