YOUR SAY BUFFET LUNCH - Just wanted to say how much our group enjoyed the Seafood Buffet Lunch Cruise. We really appreciated the delicious food and the excellent service by the staff. We also enjoyed the interesting commentary, even though many of us have lived in Sydney a long time, I'm sure we all learned something new! The fact that it was a fabulous summer day was icing on the cake.  Sue, NSW
