Service: have done numerous captain cook cruises and I was a bit disappointed with the disembarking , we were attempting to get off when a surge of people started getting on for the next cruise, my elderly mum with limited mobility was pushed and shoved by people getting on , extremely disorganised process, fortunately a lovely Indian gent who was a deck hand I think , came to our rescue and stopped the pushing and shoving so my mum could get off,

Product: lovely food as always, thankyou , my parents thoroughly enjoyed their 60 the wedding anniversary lunch

Service: misunderstood did not realize the buffet was going to be on the top deck - stairs no good for mum. So had to take food up and down the stairs. did not find staff very helpful. However the commentary was great.

Product: Was expecting a lot more variety re: seafood and wasn't really fussed over non seafood did not feel it was value for money. Would not recommend it.

Service: Service was good.

Product: Even though the quality was excellent, the serving sizes were a little on the small size. Also, the roasted potatoes I had with the chicken were very overcooked. I got the impression they were reheated a few times. We were also disappointed that tea and coffee was not included on a 3.5 hour cruise, yet the people having the buffet which is $10 cheaper were provided with it.

Service: Very beautiful cruise made an even beautiful fathers day!!

Product: As the food is good it would be even better with a fish and chips option, as there wasn't much for kids as a main meal. Is also worth paying for the bar option as an extra, because the prices for drinks were ridiculous.

Service: As soon as we embarked the food came straight out, it was taken away again. Every time we went to the buffet the oysters where empty and the prawns were minimal. no time to explore the vessel and have photos taken upstairs.

Product: What did get to enjoy was nice but very minimal, it seemed the just wanted to dish it out and clean it up. Very disappointing for the price!!!

Service: We thoroughly enjoyed the experience on the Captain Cook Cruise Long Lunch. Your staff was very helpful and very attentive. We were very appreciative that we were allocated a table at the front of the ship which made it a perfect Fathers Day Lunch on Sydney Harbour. Magic!!!!!

Product: The Wine & food was excellent, great choices. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, we had the chicken and the steak both juicy and very tasty.

The service and staff were excellent. We were dining with our 2 kids, and were disgusted by the pile of food scraps that was left behind by the child of the guests seated next to us. The carpeted flooring was piled high with food and no attempt was made to clean it, the parents just kept giving their child more food to throw on the growing pile. We felt that the staff should have cleaned the offending pile as it felt like we were dining alongside a tip..or at least spoken to the parents.

Service: The ship was good, although getting settled on board took a little longer than expected.

Product: Generally good value for money, although the drinks service was quite slow. People who ordered drinks after us were getting served first, even though we only had a small order. We were half way through our lunches by the time the drinks arrived.

Food was good, and the scenery is amazing, as expected. However, I was so disappointed that the ship didn't have a change table for me to change my baby's nappy. I had to use my pram and do it in the dining room. It's unacceptable that in this day and age a company like Captain Cook can't organise a cheap and simple table (one of those attached to the walls) inside toilets. And we were there for Father's day, so it goes without saying that there will be kids, babies, toddlers, etc...

Product: I've been a regular traveller on the harbour with the NV2000 for the past eight or nine years now, and I must admit, the menu needs a drastic overhaul.

She told me she doesn't know who she is and can't Help me in a very rude tone

Suggestion: A running commentary in relation to the harbour and some back ground history. Being a resident of Sydney it was not a big deal as my wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. But you would have more tourist taking your lunch time cruise and it would be nice for them to have some knowledge of the harbour and some history.

Service: Your audio coverage for the seafood cruise is out of date. You could have it updated, makes the cruise less attractive for it not to be 10/10.

Service: We enjoyed our cruise, it would be nice if the commentary could also be heard in the upstairs dining area. We were not aware there was a commentary until much later in the cruise and we had missed most of the information.

Our waitress was very good, efficient, helpful and friendly. We were made to feel very welcome.

Product: The food and service was excellent we enjoyed our 3 course meal very much.

Service: Even though the majority of customers on the cruise were overseas tourists (Chinese/Korean), there was no foreign language commentary and the English commentary was difficult to understand for non native speakers

Service: Crew were excellent, drinks promptly delivered with a smile.

I always think these cruises are somewhat rushed, we had to go back to the buffet quickly so that we could fit dessert in before it was time to get off and we probably missed the chance to really relax and enjoy the view. I would gladly pay more for extra time.

Product: Food was mostly OK but a few small things we noticed......the sweet chili chicken lacked flavour (sauce seemed watery) and there could have been more than one hot seafood dish and more roast veggies for a Christmas in July cruise. Really need to improve the coffee.

Service: Our Long Lunch Cruise dining experience was outstanding. Your hand picked staff could not have been more polite or helpful. They showed great respect towards my 80 year old mother and 87 year old mother in law, who were treated like queens and thoroughly, enjoyed their day on the harbour. I was at first concerned about how we would cope with a wheelchair and a walker on board but need not have worried. Your delightful crew enthusiastically helped us board and disembark and because we were unable to deal with the stairs they set a beautiful table for us on the ground level whilst still ensuring we did not miss one second of the fine dining experience. Congratulations on providing an exceptional service which allowed us to totally relax and enjoy every moment.

Product: The long lunch was exceptional value for money. The service was outstanding, the menu and wine list had great variety and the food was superb. We really enjoyed our day on the harbour which totally exceeded all expectations. Thank you Captain Cook Cruises.

Service: The crew was exceptional. My friend, whose birthday we were celebrating on 24 May, has a disability and the crew set up a table for us downstairs and provided us with fantastic service and attention. We would like to single out the very caring Raymond and the very attentive Claire. The rest of the crew helped my friend make her way off the boat and on to the circular quay ramp. Everyone made the day memorable and I can not praise and thank Captain Cook enough.

Service: We paid top dollar for the long lunch and wondered why a young man dressed in white overalls (working on the boat) kept walking in and out of the bar/dining area to chat with other staff- lowered the atmosphere and seemed very inappropriate.

Product: The food was lovely. However, as we wanted to take time to enjoy the 'long' lunch cruise, the meal was very hurried. Staff seemed intent on rushing our 3 courses when we wanted to savour the experience over at least 2 of the 3 hours.

Service: Good cruise with a nicely appointed boat. The male toilets were excellent. Food was ok and the service was very good. The wine was really very expensive however.

Product: The cruise was ok but could have gone further up the harbour ( perhaps a very, very small commentary such as when Opera House was built, where the Government residence was at Kirribilli, what the Garden Island dock yards was used for, identify Shark Island. Compared to the Vagabond which we had gone on two weeks earlier it was not quite that good close. Although the Captain Cook cruise boat itself was of course much grander and the male toilets were five and a half star class excellent. The wine was very, very expensive on the Captain Cook cruise which was a bit disappointing for our overseas guests and us. Overall ok and thank you for the opportunity to comment as we are proud to show Australia in good light to overseas visitors who will tell many others it is a good or not so good place to visit.

Service: We enjoyed the cruise. It was easy to book and to take the boat at Circular Quay. Service on board was businesslike and efficient.

Product: We enjoyed the food. The serves were the right size and tasty. However, for some reason, the commentary, which was audible on other decks, couldn't be heard at all on our deck. Plus, one of us chose a dish described as vegetables au gratin, but it was, in fact, a vegetable stack. If we had known, a different dish would have been ordered. However, these issues didn't spoil the cruise...it was just a bit annoying. We would certainly do it again and would be happy to advise others to do so. This was our third cruise with Captain Cook, having taen a New Years Eve cruise and the Sydney to Hobart viewing cruise.

One suggestion for the commentary that is provided- you should reconsider the use of 'Aborigine' and use 'Aboriginal' or 'Aboriginal people'. The term 'Aborigine' is not the politically correct term and may be considered offensive.

Service: Would have been happier If you guys had added Ice cream to the dessert. If thats not possible atleast serve ice cream & charge for the same. I was very disappointed with your coffee. It was plain rubbish.

Product: Except for your Chilly Chicken, most of the Buffet was boiled stuff. I am sure you can make an effort to have more tastier food. The cruise was good. We all enjoyed it.

Service: We booked a seafood cruise for our father's 90th birthday. On arrival at circular quay, there was no signage on where to go. We walked up to the top floor only to be told to walk back downstairs. You ask a 90 yr old to walk back downstairs! Signage would have helped.

Product: The staff were incredible. I had asked at time of booking, that a special birthday treat for our father. The crew certainly delivered. The whole crew and all guests sang happy birthday. It was amazing. Dad was so impressed. The food was fabulous. The table was incredible. The views incredible. For someone who has lived in Sydney for a long time, I had the most amazing day on our beautiful harbour. Thanks

Service: promised a discount for Birthday. Did not take the cost of the cruise offered off the cost of the more expensive cruise we paid for. I have unsubscribed.

Product: Food and food service excellent. Bar service very poor,they chased my husband down on the top deck to pay the bar bill ,he went up to catch a better view of a yacht race. I was still sitting at the table and we had 1hour left on the cruise. Did they think he was going to dive overboard and leave me there?

No commentary was provided in the lunch area,so the whole cruise was a waste of money and time

When booking the cruise I advised Captain Cook Cruises that an infant, under 1 year old) would be part of our group. On the day there was a booster chair available but no high chair. The booster chair is only suitable for an older child.

I sent this feedback to the company 5 days ago by email and am yet to receive a response.

Service: The service was great. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Product: It was okay. The prawns on the buffet were quiet small.

I'm allergic to a lot of things too,so it makes it hard for me. I liked that you had gluten free options.

Just a suggestion with the salads; it would be great to put no dressing on them and then have some salad dressing options. And few more fresh salads with no mayo on them. And fresh fish with no sauces on it.

Other than that it was fantastic. The staff are amazing. And thank you for making my Mums Birthdays the best day of her life. (Her words)

The only negative was the info on the website. Earlier enquiries did not disclose reporting in time prior to departure and as a result we had to go to Circular Quay and because of the change and traffic in the city ended up running late and having to grab the first available parking facility and paying $50 for parking - not what we had planned for. Crew reception and attention was A1.

Service: Staff were great, very friendly and helpful.

Ship was great, great viewing areas and big windows so can see everything all of the time from everywhere.

The harbour sells itself, commentary was good, but a little hard to hear at times.

Product: I thought there would have been a little more variety for the lunch buffet especially in the seafood area in both hot and cold. What was there was very nice, but not a great variety as expected.

Desserts were very disappointing, for choice and variety, also ran out of cheeses for a shared cheese platter.

Food was packed up before we reached our final destination at Circular Quay - was upstairs admiring the view after drop off at Darling harbour and came back down to find food was packed away. May have been nice to announce or let passengers know so could have put a plate away for the final leg of the trip.

My daughter cut the top of her eye walking into your top deck barrier. The lady on the ship was great in trying to settle my daughter down. But your Henry Tsang only offered a taxi one way to the nearest hospital on Macquarie st but refused to help pay for the taxi back to circular station. My daughter suffered dizziness as well as unable to walk, I also had one child at 4 and third aged 7. So I made the decision to catch the train back to Granville and drive my family to medical centre were we sat for 2 hours to get treatment. It was a terrible day and I think you should of done more to help me in this situation. Very dissapointed in your senior wharf operation manager in the way this was handled

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: We were very sorry to read about your situation as from our crew reports the children were running on the top deck of our vessel and we always show care and concern for our guests when any mishap happens.
We did certainly offer to provide a taxi to the nearest hospital in Macquarie St in the city, but as you decided to go back by train to your medical centre, we believe our senior manager acted appropriately given the circumstances and your response at the time deemed this as acceptable. We do hope your daughter has fully recovered.

Service: The service was extremely poor. No one came to take our drink order and when we followed everyone else's lead and went to the bar to place our order we were told to wait until the waitress was available. 1 hour into the cruise she finally came to take the order.

We were not told to go and help ourselves to the buffet, again we waited for sometime and then followed the crowd.

We were not told at the time of booking that the cruise did not cater for anyone with a disability - which did cause us some problems.

The commentary however was excellent.

Product: We had friends down from Orange (and it seemed that most of the passengers were also tourist) and it was rather embarrassing to hear a comment that "surely this is not the type of seafood that Sydney is famous for".

It should simply be marketed as a "Buffet Lunch".

Service: it was good but short trip around the harbour maybe if you extend the time around the harbour to give tourists more time to see the surroundings.

(paying $37 for two jugs of coke was outrageously ridiculous though!)

another half hour would have been great as most of the time was spent queuing up and didn't really have much time to enjoy the company or talk within the group (there were 12 of us)

Product: Seafood selection was great, however, there should have been some beef or lamb roasts and roasted chicken wingette/drumettes for more variety (the curries didn't look appealing at all)

Product: There was no music playing on the background while we were on the cruise, jazz might be great or classical music or any nice music selection on the background will be great.

3 course meal was great, please improve dessert selection, we had the lemon tart & marble cake, & they din't really liked it, it would be good to have something smaller but tasty rather than huge slice of cake which didn't taste/ look the best, but entree & main was excellent. Thank you very much Captain Cook Cruises!

Staff collected used plates etc in an unobtrusive manner. Commentary was interesting. The alternating of a male and female voice assisted concentration as it varied the presentation. Amount of information was just right. Enough facts but not too much detail.

Product: It was good that finger bowls were provided given that seafood can be a bit sticky. Good variety of seafood and sufficient other food items as well. We all ended up eating somewhat more than usual for lunch. The buffet system worked very well as one could eat at one's own pace and sellect more if wanted. Amply food provided. Thank you.

Product: As above the catering could have been so much better, The hot meals chilli chicken and vegetarian curry tasted like something out of a bottle from the local supermarket - something I could easily cook better with fresh ingredients at home - however I must say the quantity of food was good and the desserts were nice.

Product: Suggest more seafood be available. We only had prawns plus other hot dishes to choose from when asked to serve ourselves for lunch. Others seemed to have more to choose from. The drink waiter was also a little slow in providing our drinks, which arrived when we had almost finished our mains. Staff said they were extra busy at the bar when asked why the delay.

Service: the commentary was boring and dry. It would have been helpful to have some music in the background. Really do you think that knowing a property sold for 26 million is of interest to most people????

Product: Hi , it was the worst seafood buffet I have ever attended. crab, and prawns had been defrosted hence waterlogged and tasteless. I was the last table to be accessed no ham, no bread rolls, tough fish , etc most of salads were finished. One table of food caused delays where 2 tables - 1 at either end would have been a better arrangement. I would warn people off taking a cruise with your company. WENDY

Service: As a customer with Captain Cook Cruises for 17 years, have always had good service, from Gold Service dinner, or a simple coffee cruise. It's a pleasure to be 'on board'. Unlike other dinner cruises, dinner tables are comfortably spaced and not 'crammed together', which can cause discomfort .

Product: An enjoyable experience! Although I wasn't a winner on the day, it was good to be there to watch 'The Race that Stops a Nation!'. Hope you have one next Melbourne Cup Day.

Product: I have been on the long lunch before and took a girlfriend for a catchup. I was expecting the long lunch we paid for but we're extremely disappointed the lunch was less than 2 hours.

1/5

Service: We were supposed to enjoy the cruise... we didn't. The main reason why was due to your monotone droning commentator blaring out information at the loudest possible volume, prevented my wife and I from even been able to have a decent conversation, even shouting to each other didn't help.

We were supposed to enjoy the food... we didn't

This was supposed to be a nice birthday for my wife, and it wasn't.

Ultimately, we wasted our money, and WILL NOT recommend Captain Cook Cruises at all.

Product: For the money, we were ripped off, the quality was very low, and the food was bland.

Then, the part that was really bad... YOU DID NOT CLEAN/DEVEIN THE PRAWNS.

Maybe your Chinese customers love eating the gritty, smelly, brown vein of the prawn, we DO NOT. We thought it was very strange that they had not been shelled nor cut open/butterflied. Thank god my wife tried to cut them open first and not just bite into it, the vein was filled with the filth. And never mind we had to change our plates as the filth burst out all over everything else.

How did you people get the relevant food certifications????!!! It was disgusting and of course that set the tone for the rest of the trip.

Very difficult to hear the commentary and what we did hear could have had a lot more details about individual houses/ areas etc. Personalising the details rather than a history tour. Also we were often on the wrong side of the boat to see what was being described. Loved our window seat though.

It was very difficult to hear anything that was being said and if you went out on the deck, you could not hear at all. We also only realized that we could stay on for the full length (2 trips around the harbor) because we asked. A lot of people got off the ship after the first cruise. The cruise itself and the dinner were excellent for the value offered. We would take this cruise again.

The 3 adults though fully enjoyed the food on offer, however we were highly disappointed that after paying so much money we then had to fork out more to buy our children lunch once we left the cruise

Service: in general, pretty good. Because of an injured person in our party, we had to sit on the lower deck and transfer food up and down stairs. When we did ask for waiter assistance it was readily available. The cruise had the potential to be a pleasant dining experience, but for whatever reason that did not happen. Maybe it was due to cultural differences of the passengers, lack of social skills and manners...I'm not sure, but it was disappointing.

Product: The upstairs seafood buffet was looking like a bad dining room experience at a kids' camp. The Tea/coffee area was an unsightly mess, both adults and children serving themselves didn't seem to have the foggiest idea about sharing from communal serving dishes. Prior to the "locusts" diving snouts first into the food, it was well-presented. The crab was excellent, but the state of the barramundi was questionable....by the time I got a piece it was cold to lukewarm and in need of tossing out. The prices of alcohol selections were far too costly. I would not be in a hurry to do another seafood buffet lunch cruise unless there was a big improvement in the negatives I have ;mentioned.
