Service: Good food and service, except for desserts which were a bit disappointing (not very tasty and looked like it might have been random mass produced frozen desserts). Overall a great experience with great views, but still on the expensive side. I would recommend for tourists but maybe not for Sydneysiders who are already familiar with harbour views and sights.

Service: We had a very good experience food, service and tour. The 4 star rating is that there always room for improvement. E.G We were seated at a window seat however felt closed in because of the couple sitting right next to us. Otherwise a good experience
Product: The entrée was not what we expected. Just the 2 x Prawns. The Barra for mains was good as to the dessert.

Service: The food was delicious and the scenery on the first half of the cruise was spectacular. We did not realize that the "long lunch" was a repeat of the first half. Also, the service was unbelievably slow. We had gotten the premium liquor package but it took us a half hour to get our first drink. If would have been preferable to do a different route on the second half, and if the server is being trained, have him/her shadow someone for at least a week or assign them initially to people who do not pay for premium liquor and window seats
Product: The purchase was quite easy. It would have been better to make it clear that you need to exchange your reservation confirmation for actual tickets and exactly where the transaction should be done, but everyone was so customer focused!

Service: Being six in our party, we were made so welcome and placed in full view of your glorious harbour. Our waiter was delightful and efficient as was the wine waiter. We didn,t want our cruise to end, but have been left with many happy memories of our Captain Cook Cruise.We are back in N. Z. but the photographs have widely displayed.
Product: We are not big eaters, but your food presentation was excellent and appetizing. The relatively short time from gathering the menu details until the food arrived was either very short or we were talking too much! Being with a friend with whom I grew up in England, was very special as we emigrated 60 years ago, with one going to Sydney eventually and the other to N.Z.

Service: The food was delicious and the wine we ordered passable but exorbitantly priced for what it was. The waitress tried very hard but her English was almost non existent and she couldn't answer a single question we asked. Surely on a cruise of this nature, mostly for tourists, she should be able to identify what is out the window. I had been told there was a commentary on the second turn around the harbour. When there was silence, I asked again. No, no commentary I was told. Our visitors had to endure our commentary instead. And then someone went to the toilet and heard the commentary downstairs! We would have gone down had we known. All in all, I was very disappointed and would definitely not recommend this to visitors.
Product: The food was delicious. The wine was expensive.

Service: From start to finish ALL staff (especially Arina our waitress) were welcoming, friendly and attentive. Couldn’t fault a thing. Food was plentiful and very tasty. We were celebrating 2 special birthdays and had sparklers on our dessert which was great! The boat itself was very clean and tidy and decor etc was in great condition. Thought with the constant use it might be a bit shabby but it wasn’t at all. It truly is a top-class floating restaurant that could hold its own anywhere. One issue we could see was the lack of a lift to the top deck. My husband is recovering from a knee replacement and found it quite difficult to climb the stairs.
Product: Great value for money. Only disappointment was that we thought the boat could have cruised further than it did. It seemed to go very slow compared to every other boat (big and small) on the harbour. We all agreed that was the one and only thing we were slightly aggrieved with.

Food was good but the quality of the boat and interior was very average. It wasn't organised and they kept changing to the boarding location without any notice. We had to go and find out.. We rang and they told us to board on one pier but then we found out it was wrong. The speakers were terrible and they went very loud we had to block our ears.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,


Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience. Our cruise departure locations are listed on our website for complete transparency for our customers and we follow this as closely as possible. Our vessels are always reviewed to maintain a modern image, including a recent renovation of the Sydney 2000; the vessel our lunch cruises operate on. The wharf and its sound system is managed by the government, and therefore outside of our control. We apologise for the inconvenience.


Thank you once again for your feedback.

Service: We had enjoyed the Captain Cook Top Deck Lunch for almost 15 plus years and only had one bad experience when the Air Conditioning broke down on a very hot day.
However our recent experience was pathetic and I put it down to cost cutting at the expense of quality of service.
We booked a TOP DECK LUNCH expecting to be seated on the Top Deck as we had the last 10 or 12 times, with very intimate service, lovely offering of a variety of breads with olive oil etc,and after lunch coffee and top ups on the extended long lunch.
However we did not get a TOP DECK LONG LUNCH instead we were "coralled into the 2nd deck along with everyone else on board" those that had ordered Asian Lunch, High Tea, etc, we were sent to the front of the boat along with about 40 other patrons and given a table Number 61 in the corner with timber pannelling almost completely blocking our view. we requested to be relocated to the usual seating on the Top Deck and were told it was not available. Even to be relocated into the centre of the ship would have been a more pleasant position however it appeared to be allocated to those patrons having High Tea??.
The only reason I can see why this situation arose was that the manager decided to position everyone on the one deck so that he required less staff to cater for the day.
Cost cutting at the expense of the customer.
NOT GOOD ENOUGH !!!
You cannot sell someone something called a TOP DECK LONG LUNCH and give them a MIDDLE DECK SLAP UP TUCKED IN THE CORNER.
Captain Cook Cruises have changed for the worse and the only positive thing is that you gave me the opportunity to tell you what we thought of your changes before I went onto facebook to warn others of your new practices.
Product: Cost cutting at the expense of the customer experience.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,


Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience. We are pleased to note that our hospitality manager has resolved this issue with you already via email. As explained, unfortunately we had to undertake urgent repair work to the bar on the Top Level on this day and we certainly regret that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion.

Service: We boarded at Circular Quay and were shown to our table. Not long after we were offered water from the carafe - this was the last time we were offered water. Our entrees were served very quickly and they asked if we would like to wait to our mains-we said yes. They then came out not so long after. We pulled into Darling Harbour for the first time and the waitress asked if we would like our dessert now or did we want to wait. We said we'd wait. As we got around to the harbour bridge, we were given our dessert. We said, when asked at Circular Quay, that we were staying on board as we had booked the Long Lunch Cruise 3 1/2 hours. In retrospect, we should have got off. The food was great, but the drink service was virtually non-existent. No one asked if we would like coffee or offered to replenish our water and having already been on the first outbound trip, we did an even shorter version - not sure why you sell it as a 3 1/2 hour cruise.
Product: Please read all my comments re the service, or lack thereof. From where the boat turned around and started heading back to the wharf at Darling Harbour, the staff were more preoccupied with moving tables, chairs and setting up, presumably for the evening cruise.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience. The timing of our courses is designed to provide customers ample time to both enjoy their meal whilst also leaving enough time to appreciate the stunning views of Sydney Harbour. We are disappointed to read that the service on your cruise wasn’t to your standards. We can assure you that our staff are trained to provide our customers devoted and efficient service. We always encourage guests to talk to the Cruise Director on board if they have any concerns, especially regarding food, drinks and service as they will be able to solve the problem immediately.

Service: When we booked onto the cruise, there was no indication that the lunch was to be conducted upstairs. On arrival to the boat we were directed to go up the stairs where lunch was to be served. My wife is disabled and could not climb up the stairs. We were seated on main deck level, a table was prepared for us. We were seated alone in a rather large room with a window seat. To travel all the way from south west Victoria to see the Harbour on a luncheon cruise was on our to do list. Our experience was disappointing to say the least. There was no ambience to the occasion. We will not be recommending any of your services to any of our friends.

We had a party of 9 - the food was fine and the waiter service was fine, except our 'fine' waiter advised us the cruise was over once we had returned to Circular Quay at approx 2.15pm and we all disembarked. Upon later research we realised we had been short changed by an hour and half! The issue was also mentioned by another of our party members via on line complaint . - The situation was an obvious misunderstanding by the staff member of the cruise length, we are sure he did not knowingly mislead us. Some of our party were quite satisfied with the cruise to that point anyway and had basically seen enough. Overall the experience was enjoyable
however we have missed an opportunity to enjoy more of Sydney Harbour !

Product: Excellent value package. The standard bar selection offered good quality wines delivered without fuss.

Service: We spent a lovely long lunch cruising Sydney Harbour. The meal was enjoyed by all. We all felt that it would have been a lot more enjoyable if the 2nd part of the cruise went to different part of the harbour and not back around the exact same area.
Product: Due to the time of year of our booking it was hard to contact via the phone, but all emails were answered promptly and with all the relevent information.

Overall everything was done well.Would have been nice to have been informed that we needed to collect boarding passes before we boarded Nobody asked us after boarding whether we would like drinks. Once this was asked for the drinks kept coming. Food was great. A great afternoon out.

Service: All the staff that served the meal were great happy to help and nothing was too much trouble
Product: Food was average, if the focus of the experience was the lunch it was disappointing, I treated myself to a cocktail but was less than impressed with what i got they didn’t even have a umbrella! This was a once in a lifetime experience for me but i felt letdown there was no flare no special touches what i got was a boat trip around the harbour and lunch there is so much scope for that to be turned into something special but it wasn’t and the trip gave itself an early mark, i realise there wasn’t supposed to be commentary but that too would have made the experience better, considering lots of people on the cruise would have been visitors to Sydney some explanation of what we were seeing would have been good, the dressed up “captain cook” seemed to be trying to blend in rather than sell the product I’m sure if he was more vocal he could attract more business fo you

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience. We are disappointed to hear you were not completely satisfied with your Long Lunch Cruise.

Service: The entire Long Lunch Cruise is conducted professionally, from the boarding of the boat to the disembarking. Location of tables, service by staff and the range of food are all very good. This was about the 8th cruise we have done and all were good. Recently we were on the smaller boat than before and I would probably lean towards the larger one for experience. One little issue which I'll mention, without a solution is, the issue of the double trip which we have taken every time and enjoyed. Perhaps a clearer explanation to guests as to their options and the procedure would be helpful. We have felt , on a couple of occasions that we were not welcome to stay on for the second tour around the harbour, when the Afternoon tea group boards. Could I suggest a possibility that you consider some token addition to the Long Lunch guests who stay on for the second run of the harbour. Perhaps a glass of bubbly at the same time as the high Tea guests get theirs, or a cup of tea or coffee simultaneously. We took our daughter on the last Long Lunch recently , which was her first time, she enjoyed it very much. But she was puzzled as we set out on the second tour around, all the guests on the other side were getting their high tea and we were sitting watching the harbour views. I just think, if you offer the second tour around, then some form of inclusion would not go astray. I know everything costs money but you do really want all the guests to feel they are part of the trip for the whole of the experience.
Product: I have just written a fairly complete comment in which I said we enjoyed the Long Lunch and this is about our 8th such trip over the last 2 or 3 years. I also suggested some attempt to include the Long lunch guests on the second Harbour trip for the afternoon with the High Tea guests would not go astray.

Service: Although there were a very small number of people booked for lunch the service provided by staff was very poor. They confused the initial drinks order and forgot the coffee order at the end of the meal. We were given a basket of bread rolls for 4 people but no butter. When I asked for butter it took a long time to deliver and there were only 3 pieces of butter
Product: We were upgraded to the long lunch as not enough people had booked the buffet. We would have preferred the buffet as I assume there would have been a greater choice of dishes.
Also I paid extra for window seating but on the day there were so few customers that everyone had a window seat.

On a positive note the food was beautifully cooked and presented

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience.

Food was excellent but served a bit too quickly for the "long lunch" cruise. It was a long cruise with a quick lunch. Also the 'long cruise' was two circuits of the same route so we disembarked after the first circuit. Others stayed on for the second loop. However, a very enjoyable experience.

Service: The experience was very disappointing! We were on the same "mother's day cruise" 2 years ago and we spent the entire afternoon cruising the harbour and it was great day! This year we spent most of the day docked at darling harbour 2X and Circular Quay 2X - We spent at least 1.5 hours stopped at the dock than cruising the harbour. When I asked the lady she said its not a special cruise but a normal afternoon cruise which differ from what i was told when i booked over the phone.
Product: pricey for spending the day docked at darling harbour and circular Quay

To state long lunch cruise is deceptive when the lunch is finished well before time only to repeat another round of dropping and picking passengers. What’s the point taking two rounds of the harbour??
Pathetic for it’s worth.

Only reason I did not give 5 stars is that I was unable to upgrade to the drinks package once on board (had to be done before).

At the time of booking there was a question of special diatery requierments.
We specified gluten free and lactose free. But unfortunately there was no lactose free and then we sent our feed back with full explanation.

Product: I’m a Sydney boy, born and bred.
My brother worked with you guys for years so I know the product well.
I know the harbour, it’s beautiful.
Food was great .
Lance’s service was great .
Wine was disappointing .
I took and paid for myself and 3 guests . I paid for the premium drinks package . I tried every red and two whites .
The Tyrells moon mountain which I buy on special at Dan Murphys for 20 dollars a bottle was the only average / decent quality wine available .
Such a disappointment .
A little embarrassing actually.
We hoped for better.
One glass of the Mawson had to be taken away . Obviously the bottle was open too long.
As I said , everything else was so good. Why let yourselves down with the wine list, especially today when so many people enjoy food and wine matching .
Anyway we will be back , but I hope this aspect improves . I’m happy to help with the wine selection if u ever want help.
Thankyou

Service: The cruise, the setting and the 3 course meal were all excellent. If I were to be critical it would be the slight evidence of confusion among the staff early in the cruise with their approach to addressing the drinks arrangements, the selection of the menu choice and then the actual bringing to the table. We seemed to sit for a long while with no contact on any front while some other tables were into their second course. There seemed to be a need for someone calling the shots and organising who was to go to which table etc. Another minor point, it is a pity there isn't a lift up to the top deck floor. I am having mobility problems currently and the steep steps presented some slight problems.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for the review of your experience of your Cruise. All bookings on our cruises are subject to changes stated in our terms and conditions. On this case, we have upgraded you to the Long Lunch Cruise. As you are aware, a buffet can only function when a passenger quota is met.

Service: Food and Staff were Excellent. Marketing was confusing and ultimately a let-down. In buying the premier tickets, we expected we were going on a 3 hr full harbour cruise with commentary and a nice lunch. Instead we were going for a nice lunch (it was) on the harbour and getting shuttled between stops for the convenience of others, so we got off an hour early. That there was going to be no commentary was not evident until the money had been paid and it was on the receipt. It is all about managing expectations - if we had known what we were going to be in for we would have had lunch somewhere else and bought a 'proper' cruise, with commentary.

Product: Cruise was 3 1/2 hours and we thought that the route would include more of Sydney Harbour than it did.
The route was repetitive with time spent at Circular Quay and King Street Wharf. Last 1 1/2 hours a waste. Cruise to Manly, Balmoral, Hunters Hill & Parramatta River would improve experience.
We had no commentary in the top restaurant.

We were well attended throughout the cruise and I couldn't really fault it for the amount we paid. Amenities were all very clean and modern. We did however choose the premium drinks package which everyone had to be on (although about four in our group did not drink alcohol) - and on the day there "was not" Little Creatures beer on the menu as is advertised in the example drink menu on their website. Nor was there a suitable replacement for this. That was the only disappointment.

Service: The overall experience was good but could have been great with the front desk experience from the pier and wharf desk. We had over 35+ guest for long lunch cruise and was placed in the private section of the ship. It was such a beautiful experience. Our staff complimented on the 3 course meal. It was delicious. We had a hiccup with guest seats but they quickly got that rectified and hassle free. They were accommodating.

The only bad experience I had was when the Pier desk only printed 25 onboard passes but I had increased the number of guests since my initial booking. The wharf 1 desk did not believe that I was supplied short and refused to provide the right number of boarding passes even after I have collected all 25 passes from all our staff to physically show her. Pier desk should have counted the passes to match what was on the amended record document. Luckily, I had the print out document. So she asked that I showed it to the staff onboard. Also, I was told that I could arrange the drink package when we get onboard but later asked to do so at the wharf 1 desk before the ship leaves so I had to run and pay this at wharf 1.

It would also be good to know when the desserts are being served. Most of us was on the deck and didnt realise that the dessert plates had been placed on our table.
Apart from that....It was good, and enjoyable experience.

it would make our experience more enjoyable if the cruise offer some extra service for the kids - also a different menu for kids under 10 year old, as my son 5 year old had only one third of the main meal

Service: Excellent service. We didn't need to ask for anything. We were well looked after.
Product: It was enough time to enjoy our 3 course meal, have a few drinks, a chat and lots of laughs. Well worth every dollar.

Helena, who took care of us were awesome! Food, ambience and view was good. It pays to pay for the premium package. Everyone had a good time. Thank you!
