Service: Lovely way to see Sydney harbour.
Product: Service lovely but was sometimes long wait for a drink. Ok as they had a self serve bar so was ok. Next time don’t tell us the food was reheated and came out of a plastic bag that you can buy from Aldi. For a specialist meat and beer matched lunch for Father’s Day. I would expect freshly cooked food.

Service: Online purchasing was very efficient and a later email advised of a change to departure point. Unfortunately it was not followed up and the website was not updated when the departure point reverted back to its original position. As the office was not open it was up to the crew of the vessel to assure us we were in the right place. Others on board were equally confused.
Product: Beautifully and spaciously set out. The food was well presented and delicious, the wine generously poured. Staff were friendly and attentive. Plenty of room to move around inside and out. A very nice atmosphere.
