Service: Great Company. A bit of confusion loading from the two gates and split stairwell.

Product: Nice food, a little slow to re-stock platters. Inexperienced staff when ordering a bottle of wine, our girl had no idea about availability of wines or how to pour from a bottle into a wine glass, a fair bit missed the glass.

Service: Service was fine. Perhaps it would be useful to know that there was a limited time to get food from the buffet and the desert/cheese buffet.

Product: The seafood was excellent, but the vegetarian option was quite poor on this occasion. Either vegetarian diners shouldn't have to pay as much, or the quality needs to be improved.

It would have capped off the experience if better desserts and "top quality" coffee were included. Yes good quality coffee was available at a price, but I believe it should be included and the dessert was very low standard. The rest of the buffet was good enough quality and our group enjoyed the experience very much.

Service: I would like to see tablecloths. Entree was out of a packet!!! Ravioli very ordinary. Main of beef was good and dessert vanilla slice good. We were not really asked enough for drinks etc. The photographer was not able to put his cost to our tab as we had one due to a member of our party not being to attend.

Product: We booked the long lunch but the food came at the rate of the short so we got off. Bar potential is lost by this. Perhaps the top deck should only be for the long lunch and have a more chilled atmosphere. It was a bit production line for my liking.

Service: Gave cruise as a present to parents for their anniversary. They have not stopped talking about it since they went a week ago. They loved it. We paid extra for the window seat which they really enjoyed. Thought there could have been some basic commentary on the harbour as they cruised especially for those who were on the cruise from overseas.

Product: My parents said the meal was great and that there was a good choice for each of the courses.

Service: The staff are always pleasant and knowledgeable

Product: Extremely disappointed with this cruise. We have done numerous breakfast, coffee and dinner cruises and have been really impressed with the standard. However, we were very disappointed this time. We were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday with family and the lack of food was unsatisfactory. We chose this cruise because it implied there would be enough choice for non seafood lovers and vegetarians....not so. The cheese and crackers platters and the cake platters had only scaps left by the time we finished our meals. We paid $700 for our family to join us and feel it was not worth the money

Service: The commentary was a bit loud and allowed little time for conversation. It was good of the man ticking off names and bookings to notice that we had made two bookings but wanted to sit at the same table. there was no room on the booking to request that.

Product: i think the lunch was a bit rushed. We were only half way through our meal when we told it was almost over. Next time I will look at lunches that are more than 2 hours. we had to pay for our drinks in cash, it was a good thing we went to an ATM before the cruise. I would have expected that we could have paid by card. It took a long time to get drink service. When I first went to the buffet there were no oysters and I only got some when someone else from my table thought to bring some back for me. There were no special plates for the shells and such of the seafood. There was a lot of shells on our table which was only cleaned away near the very end. Some improvement would go a long way.

Service: Great views anjoyed day with the family.

Service of food was a let down.

Product: We came to have lunch together & received our food at different times.

Especially my kids as we had our entre, and main course and they had not even eaten a thing. I was not able to enjoy my lunch while my children watched me eat while they were hungry. Ended up feeding them my lunch and grabbed some food for my self once I got off the boat. Very poor service for the amount we paid.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for your feedback relating to your long lunch cruise. We are delighted that you overall enjoyed your day. Our Hospitality Manager will be contacting your directly to make amends for delay in service that occurred. We sincerely apologise for not meeting your expectations.

Service: There was an altercation at the bar and a bit of rudeness in tone and other behaviour was the outcome. However, the bar manager redeemed himself and was lovely for the rest of the day. I think the introduction of the new WV concept needed adjusting to. All else was great, service was very good - prompt. And the rest of the staff were friendly and accommodating.

Product: The seafood buffet had a very good selection. I would have liked to know the fish available as I was at the buffet (a staff member told me, and it was an excellent choice). 9 of 10! Very lovely.

She not only forgot to give the menu's to us but then when she did she stood there waiting our order so we didnt have the chance to sit an dtalk and discuss our menus. It also seemed she was not aware of our long lunch schedule and the food came out really quick with no time inbetween courses, so we were done eating really fast and then had all this time on the long lunch with nothing.

Product: We got food as quickly as we could, as it goes very fast. What we had was delicious!! Some people were waiting for clean plates for about three to five minutes. Staff were most friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately we couldn't hear much of the commentary as either the speakers on our side weren't working properly or too much noise from other guests. Cleaning up before the cruise was finished felt like you were being rushed a bit. The wet weather didn't dampen our enjoyment of the cruise. Thank you Captain Cook Cruises for a lovely anniversary lunch.

Service: I had taken Captain Cook cruises on several previous occasions but was disappointed with several aspects of this cruise, especially as I had made a 1200 km + round-trip from Leeton in southwest NSW just to spend one day in Sydney to meet two Austrian friends to take them on this cruise. Approximately 20 minutes of the cruise was spent moored at Darling Harbour environs.

Commentary was too quiet for the more elderly.

However, the crew provided excellent service

Product: In comparison with previous cruises: The variety of seafood was limited; the crab legs were too small to eat easily; the oysters were very small; some items were not very abundant.

Service: Great staff...excellent service

Product: Superb meal. Only comment I have is that a "long" lunch should not simply be "twice" around the harbor. Instead, the cruise should perhaps cover another part of the harbor. I know this isn't part of your business model, but the term "long lunch" implies one is going to see something more than someone who's doing the buffet lunch one deck below.

Service: I booked a lunch cruise for myself and 3 friends to celebrate our 70th birthdays. Captain Cook Cruises is a very professional company, their website was easy to use, and the price was reasonable other than charging $15 extra each for a guaranteed table at the window ( a bit expensive). Overall we were very happy with the service.

Product: The cruise itself was wonderful - Sydney Harbour must be the best harbour in the world. But the seafood in the buffet was not as good as I expected. The calamari was tough and the prawns weren't very fresh. The rest of the food was of reasonable standard. However, it didn't stop me and my friends from enjoying the cruise. The commentary was a little hard to hear over the chatter of the people.

Review for Seafood Buffet Lunch Cruise

2/5

Service: Our cruise was almost 30 minutes late departing but returned on time; meaning that our cruise was cut short through no fault of ours. We missed out because the boat had to be readied for another cruise - very poor! We certainly wouldn't recommend the cruise to others. Bad show Captain Cook Cruises - a bit of a rip-off!

Product: The meals were OK but we were presented with our bill without even being asked if we wanted tea or coffee. Considering the cost of the Long Lunch, it was a bit rich that we then had to pay for our tea and the prices of the alcoholic drinks was excessive. So for the high price we paid we got (i) a shortened cruise; (ii) poor service, and, (iii) expensive drinks.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for feedback and unfortunately we had a bow thruster mechanical issue which meant we had to delay the departure by thirty minutes on this day, as safety is always our priority for our guests. We do sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.

Your fare that your paid included one of captains on-line deals which discounted your fare by around 30%, which we believe represent exceptional value. Our pricing is similar to any restaurant that tea and coffee is not included and we do constantly monitor our bar menu prices to ensure we are offering a competitive price.

Once gain we do apologise for the delay.

Service: The lunch was rushed. There was hair in my food. I booked for a 3 hour cruise. After 2 hours the boat docked and they didn't tell people that had booked for the long cruise to stay on the boat. When I inquired the lady was not very helpful. I also think I gt ripped off given that I was meant to have a 3 hour long lunch cruise and I got 2 hours.

Service: It was easy to book the Long Lunch cruise, pick up tickets and find where to board. The staff were very professional and friendly.

Product: My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the Long Lunch cruise. Although we didn't have a table next to the window we could still clearly see the views. The meals were delivered promptly and were delicious. We ordered the drinks package which was worth it as the cruise was 3.5 hours (although you could choose to get off earlier). We went upstairs after the food to enjoy the deck and the commentary. I recommend doing this cruise first on your holiday as it is a great way to see all the wow-factors.

Being vegetarian the choice was a bit limited since I do not like spicy food but it is no fault to the cruise management as it is advertised as a Seafood Buffet, and being with my group club I had to go along. Otherwise what I could eat was near perfect!

Service: Did a night a la carte last year and loved it. the day lunch buffet has much to be desired

Product: Food range was very ordinary and not very fresh. Website didn't explain if a drink could be purchased on board or whether drinks package is only option. Commentary on board seemed very outdated like it was still the 80s

Service: Food and service excellent - Cruise 30 minutes to one hour WAY TOO SHORT. The Gold people were asked to go up to start dining at 7:15 PM. We were finished at 9:20 PM. I had a scant few minutes to go on the top and see Sydney at night which was the idea for the evening cruise. I feel very bad about this. FIX THIS - I won't do an evening dinner cruise again unless this is changed.

Product: Very happy

Food and service very good

Had plenty of time after eating to go on the top deck to view Sydney during the day and that was the idea. I had over an hour - just perfect.

The directions we received from the booking office in Darling Harbour about how to get to the lunch cruise were very poor. We had to go back twice and ask different people for directions on how to get there. The last time we asked the lady was very good and actually got out a map and showed us where to go instead of just saying (like the First Lady) just walk around the corner.

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.

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...

Please accept our thank you for allowing us to extend twice the time limit for our cruise. We had two deaths in the family and your consideration was wonderful. I could not speak more highly of the two young ladies I spoke to. Thank you.

Service: I thought the boat was very well appointed with good facilities.

Product: The quality of food was okay, the salads were fairly basic and the desserts were very basic and the cheese plate was depleted by children on our particular cruise and was not replenished during the service we had to ask for more buscuits and no more cheese was added.

Service: According to the advertisement the boat was to leave Circular Quay first, but then left Darling harbour first and then came to Circular Quay for second pick-up. If I had known that I would have boarded the boat at Darling at Darling Harbour. That what disappointed me.

Boat was clean.

Food was really nice though portions a bit on the small side.

Children's meal was very disappointing - kids got hard dried out chicken schnitzel pieces with some veggie. When I booked it stated steak and chips or nuggets and chips. My kids didn't eat and were starving when we got off the boat.

Service: It would be good if the captain cook give me a reminder text msg one day before the boarding, because i dont get any of that, I always call captain cook to check my reservation...

Product: when I have important guests coming from overseas or interstate, I make reservations for seafood buffet lunch cruise. The guests loves it, particularly because the atmosphere is quite, restaurant like environment.. foods are fresh and up to standard.. however, my recent lunch at captain cook was a bit disappointing, as there were too many people on the same floor as it seems a group was also joined... it would be great if there is not too many crowd on the same floor...

Service: Staff particularly Antonio were outstanding Efficient seating process and bringing us items we required or showing us where we would find food, drinks or utensils. These with quality food made for a most enjoyably experience. An extra 1/2 to. 1 hour would make the experience more leisurely as we seemed to be rushed.

Product: Great variety of quality foods. Different stations for sweets, drinks etc makes it easy to serve. There was little waiting and cruise was very calm even though it was a windy day.

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.

There was confusion at the wharf where we couldn't decide which lane to queue up . We were there 30 mins before departure but there was no staff to inform us where to queue up . It would be much better if proper signage is displayed at the right places for buffet lunch guests and Asian cruise lunch guest etc .

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.
