Service: absolutely, we had a wonderful day on beautiful Sydney harbour we were celebrating a Birthday and therefore it was a special day and since we live in a rural town it is a treat to come to Sydney. only negative comment is that the buffet was cleared away rather quickly and to have such beautiful food one needs a rest between refills.,

Product: Because it was indeed excellent

Service: The table service was good, but other aspects of the cruise were not. One of our party developed food poisoning and is certain it was because of the fish served to her. Also, we were aware the company seemed to be running two or three different cruises in one. We followed the same route twice, which was really annoying when we could have gone much further afield eg into Middle Harbour or further westward. Sydney 2000 is looking really tired and needs a refurb. So much unfashionable dark timber.

Product: A tired vessel in need of a refurb.

We followed the same route twice rather than following a more expansive itinerary.

One of our group got food poisioning.

Service: The lady serving our table was great. She was knowledgeable of what we were seeing, very friendly and a happy person to have around. The boat was very well fitted out and the food good. Would recommend to anyone - the ala carte was much more enjoyable than the buffet I have tried on previous occasions.

Product: Far better than I expected

Service: The ship, staff and view were great. The food this time was a little disappointing, like the asian food was watery, the fish was overcooked and the prawns and oysters were small. Generally good value.

Service: Good, especially appreciated the subtle enquiry about a "special" day, with the follow-up sparkler in dessert.

Meal well timed over cruise.

Product: Good cruise, close to land, but cruise shortened by combining long-lunch cruise with buffet cruise, which meant that cruise around harbour was limited and some sections repeated.

great service although cruise could have gone up past the heads so was a little short. Also on the long lunch we did a shorter cruise as well that just back pedaled over the same area the first loop had already gone on so a little disappointing.

Service: Service was polite and prompt. Due to public transport, some of our group were running very late and the crew were very co-operative about waiting until the last of them arrived, right on departure time. After a very stressful morning, a delightful lunch cruise. No problems with an extra child and an infant coming along on the day.

Product: Everyone in our group was very happy with all 3 courses and the extra time after lunch allowed us to change places and talk to each other while we enjoyed the Harbour.

Service: Ridiculous to say the least, got seated first and our waiter didn't greet us until 6 or 7 other couples were then seated after us. Food was also of poor quality.

Product: Food was of poor quality and there was a lack of non seafood options.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Angelo Callanan,

Thank you for taking the time to write to us. We are disappointed to read that we did not reach your expectations as we usually receive good feedback on that cruise. The Seafood Buffet Lunch offers rock oysters, ocean prawns, fish, plus a range of non-seafood and vegetarian dishes, but it is focused on seafood, as advertised on our website. We encourage guests to speak directly to the Cruise Director on-board on the day as they can assist immediately especially regarding food & beverage.

Once again we are sorry for not meeting your expectations and thank you for your feedback.


Kind regards,
Head of Customer Serice

Service: Most disappointed that $39 PREMIUM beverage package excluded all spirits and desert wines and only included seemingly "house" wines.

Service was wonderful after the staff got their work done and finished waiting on the noisy birthday party....and....why ask if water is required, then ignore the answer and fill the water glasses anyway?

Have been dining on Captain Cook periodically for over 30 years and service is nowhere near as personal as it used to be.

Product: This question highlights the problem. Please see above.

I chose a Long Lunch cruise as a surprise birthday gift for my sister.

What a great choice !

Everything was perfect. The top deck venue was spacious with great views of Sydney Harbour. The staff was welcoming and efficient, catering for our every need.The a la carte menu was generous, tasty and elegantly served.

We felt safe throughout the cruise.

The Long Lunch was excellent value for a 3 hour plus leisurely way to view Sydney Harbour with plenty of room to move.

I recommend it highly and would not hesitate to do it again for any occasion.

Special mention to all the staff and crew please...hope they read this !

Nothing. I had to go to the bar and order my second drink. I paid for a bar package and got 2 drinks... it would be cheaper to have paid for them separately. Get your service up to spec!

Service: The day was lovely, food very good. We booked for 20 people, however, the guaranteed window seating didn't eventuate which was quite disappointing for the out of towners. The cruise was a touch to quick another half an hour would have been great.

Product: The food was very good and sufficient quantity

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Hi,

We're so glad to hear you enjoyed the food and our cruise. We love hearing positive feedback. 
We've just had a look at your booking, and we can see you booked online however you didn't pay for a window guarantee which is why the window seating didn't occur. We're sorry about this but the guarantee is only for the customers that pay for that extra service.


If there is anything else we can help with please let us know!

Thank you,
Captain Cook Team

So mad that I collected my tickets at darling harbour and was told to go to circular quay. Was such a hassle and waste of time really ruined Father's Day for us.

Took overseas visitors and beautiful day on harbour. Tables weren't set with tablecloths only place mat and also the food wasn't that great. Ok but usually it's been equivalent to a nice restaurant and this time we didn't think it was.

Crew were very attentive and helpful. Only criticism we would have of our whole experience would be the food. Plenty of seafood but the hot dishes were limited and too similar, the baked potatoes didn't seem to have any accompaniment e.g. chicken or beef and the ham had no taste whatsoever. Little dessert cakes were not very pleasant.

Service: There were 18 of us , onboard to celebrate a 60th birthday. From the time of boarding, the service we experienced was excellent. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble to accommodate us. Food was great and the meals that were supposed to be hot, were!!.

To top it off the weather was perfect.

This was my third long lunch and would highly recommend it.

I would definitely do it again and those that had joined us agreed

Product: It was very easy to book this lunch and emails confirmed booking so there was no misunderstandings

I feel the cruise would be better if it went more towards the heads and less time around the Darling Harbour. We boarded at 12:30 and effectively where back at Circular Quay at 2:45, when we expected a 3:30 end time.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Christopher,

Thank you for your review for your Long Lunch Cruise with us on Sydney Harbour. We are disappointed to read that we did not meet your expectations as we normally receive good feedback on those senses. Our Long Lunch cruises depart from Darling Harbour at 12pm and from Circular Quay at 12.30pm and returns  at  3:30pm in Darling Harbour, or  at  3:45pm in Circular Quay. The route advertised goes from Darling Harbour up to Shark Island and back. We always encourage our clients to discuss with our cruise director should they have any questions relating to our timings.

Once again thank you and we apologise.

Kind regards,
Head of Customer Service

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Tsz Yuk Chan,

Thank you for your review of your Seafood Buffet Lunch cruise with us on Sydney Harbour.

The vessel’s windows are cleaned inside by our crew before and after every cruise and the outside windows have automatic window cleaners too. We strongly encourage guests to talk to the Cruise Director if they have any concerns as they would be able to assist you immediately especially regarding food and beverage services.

Service: The service at the cruise was amazing. I took my family and visiting relatives on a Long Lunch cruise on the 5th of July - without realising that my actual booking was for the 6th!! We were greated at the door by Miho, the staff member, and although there seemed to be a confusion about my booking, she seated us at the table with a smile with no delay. It was only some time later that we looked at the date on our tickets and realised our mistake. We were very impressed by the courteous service.

The catering at the cruise was flawless and the food delicious.

Product: A Long Lunch cruise is a fantastic way to see Sydney Harbour. It offers enough time for a beautiful lunch and enjoying the views from the deck afterwards. The vessel is very comfortable and spacious.

We opted for the top deck 3-course lunch and it was great. The only surprising thing on the cruise, was that half way through, we dropped off the folks who had opted for the shorter version - that's fine - but instead of taking us further west on the harbour, towards Parramatta, we went back and did the same circuit we had done during lunch. I think it would have been much better if we would have gone the other way and saw more of your beautiful harbour.

Service: A fantastic venue for a 70th Birthday. The Long Lunch is a leisurely way to enjoy Sydney's amazing harbour. The food was very good, the service was great and the views were exceptional. I was especially appreciative of the helpful attitude of staff both at the booking stage and at the actual event. I would recommend this to any large group wanting a memorable day.

Product: The stages of this lunch are particularly good. Miho, who was looking after us, was very clear and helpful about timing and suggestions to enjoy the views from the outside deck linked to our room . Our group filled the space and so we had the sensation of a very private and luxurious function.
