Everything was wonderful

Review for Long Lunch Cruise

5/5

Service: The staff were incredibly lovely and professional.
Product: I felt the whole experience was really rushed, and the food was extremely average. I took my best friend as a birthday surprise and it didn't feel very special - the staff took away the food quite early to prepare for the next trip, and we had to hurry to finish our bottle of wine. The prawns were lovely and fresh but the rest of the food seemed like a buffet you would have at a school camp. I probably wouldn't recommend it again as a special occasion, as the value for money just isn't there.

We thought the service was first rate. The crowding on the wharf was a bit chaotic but the staff were so well drilled that we all managed to go where we were meant to be. Once upstairs it was another world with the wait staff being very attentive and prepared to really look after us.
Our meal was excellent and the service was very professional, but at the same time friendly. The route the boat took was interesting and relaxing and being able to linger a while in some spots and just observe, was magic. We will be looking for other opportunities to join you.

Main courses were excellent. Beef cooked beautifully and how it was ordered to be cooked. Stuffed chicken dish was also very good.
Entrees were enjoyable as well, but desserts, I felt, were a little underwhelming - but tasty enough.
Our server was very pleasant, but we could have been offered more drinks.

We did a Seafood Buffet Lunch Cruise with our two kids and another couple . We prebooked and got a good price, as well as paying extra for the standard drinks and window seating . The food was good and drinks service was generous, allowing guests to take bottles to the table . It was well worth the extra money for the seating and drinks . The Cruise was a good length and we all enjoyed it .

Service: I excitedly chose the Captain Cook Seafood Buffet for my birthday lunch as I love seafood and wanted to do something special with my Mum and children. I was really disappointed with the food. It was a rather small selection and the quality wasn't impressive compared to the description on the website. The description of "cheeses" resulted in a choice of 2 cheeses. Dessert was a choice of 4 cakes. Would have been nice to have something other than cake- jelly, pastry, slice, icecream. I don't remember seeing any crab as mentioned in the description. A couple of the Staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming.
Product: See previous comment for full description

Service: The drinks waitress was really hopeless and was obviously not experienced. I did not get value for what I paid for unlimited bar. I had to try to get someones attention for any drinks I had. The food was excellent.
In comparison with the dinner cruise where Francesca was our waitress (she should be promoted) the lunch cruise was a dissappointment.
Product: Because I had been offered the Complementsry Cruise

The service was efficient and friendly. The boat was clean and beautiful. The food was excellent and so well done that we just walked up to the buffet and not done table by table...and it worked so well. The selection of food was not huge but perfect and different and delicious...the oysters and prawns were superb and what you would expect if you were a tourist in Sydney. The whole experience was fabulous. The historical talk was very interesting too. We would highly recommend this cruise to friends and family.

Service: Was a great experience, we enjoyed the day, we were only a small group and we did get over looked when the large tour groups joined the cruise. The one thing that could be better is the photographer prices..... we spent $100 just on the on board photos this day, but a package would have been better as we would have bought all of them. For how much it cost to get on the cruise...... the service could have been a little better.
Product: The hot food selection could have been better. Also the cold seafood could have a better assortment.

Service: Captain Cook were fantastic from the start. I had shopped around extensively. I had many questions and specific requests as part of a special birthday celebration. The staff accommodated every request with no drama from the booking office to Kelly our very attentive waitress. A fantasic and wonderful experience.
Product: The long lunch cruise is the only one of its kind and was the reason we choose this particular cruise. The food was delicious and a la carte standard. It was a fantastic leisurely lunch served over the three and a half hours spectacular cruise. The desserts could be of a higher standard, they were not a la carte standard but the entree and mains were mouth wateringly delicious and of a high standard.

I booked the lunch cruise as a present for my parents; as usual, the cruise and the lunch were enjoyed. However, they were shocked and disappointed - as was I when I heard - that they were charged for tea & coffee. You charge up to $100 for this lunch and then have the audacity to charge extra for something that is assumed to be included - in fact, I've booked these cruises several times in the past for myself and my parents, and we don't recall being charged extra for tea and coffee.

Service: Everything was really good, except that they mixed up the meals. Three people in our party of 4 ordered the beef - two were medium well, and one was medium, but they weren't given to the right people. Two people were already eating their meals, before we realised that there had been a mix up. I have a suggestion - that the chef use those small labelled skewers to identify how the steaks are cooked, that would be a great help and avoid any mix ups. Apart from that hiccup, nothing can beat lunching and cruising on the most beautiful harbour in the world!!

The food was Ok but not excellent, however, our mistake was trying to join a scenic harbour cruise with a nice lunch. It is difficult to have both at the same time. In hindsight, we should have done the morning or the afternoon scenic cruise to enjoy all the sights in then had a nice lunch separately around the foreshore near the wharf.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer, 

Thank you for the review of your Seafood Buffet Lunch Cruise with us on Sydney Harbour. We were disappointed to read that you felt we were not able to meet your expectations regarding your cruise. We display a cruise duration of 1 hour and 45 minutes, as well as a map of the cruise route on our website. This is to allow customers an approximate insight into the timing of locations that they will see during the cruise. However, we encourage guests who want a more detailed viewing of the harbour to board one of our sightseeing cruises. These also include GPS or live commentary detailing upcoming locations as well as relevant information about the sights being viewed on the Harbour.

I was very disappointed with the food that was provided. My party boarded at Circular Quay by the time we boarded the buffet was a mess. Food presented on the website was so superior to what was offered

There was a group of Japanese tourist that were disrespectful to fellow passengers and staff.

Over all very disappointed.

I will complement the commentary and the information about the history.....well done

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you for your review of your Buffet Lunch Cruise. We allow customers boarding at Darling Harbour access to the buffet early as this is the first departure point.. This gives both sets of customers an equal time to eat, and then view the fantastic sights in Sydney Harbour. The food is replenished frequently to allow everyone access to whichever food they fancy. We always encourage guests to talk to the Cruise Director on board if they have any concerns, as they will be able to solve the problem immediately. We are pleased that the commentary provided great insight into the history and information of the fabulous Sydney Harbour.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you for your review of our Buffet Seafood Lunch Cruise. As this is a seafood buffet lunch cruise, there is a emphasis on the fresh seafood. However, we provide other excellent hot meat dishes, fresh salads and desserts. We provide the menu on our website to provide customers a clear insight into what to expect before booking any dining cruise. The kitchen staff have a focus on replenishing and upkeeping the stunning presentation of our buffet, however we will ensure that presentation is the key. We agree the service and vessel make for a very enjoyable day on Sydney Harbour.
