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.

Service: The service was wonderful. Perhaps part of the commentary could be heard on the top deck. Strangers don't know Sydney Harbour.
Product: I thought there could have been more choices in all courses.
The wine was excessively priced for such cheap wine.

Service: Boat was well presented, the food was good & the staff were all friendly.
Some commentary or a map of the harbour would have been good.
One negative is that we thought that because we had purchased deluxe drink package that there was a reluctance to keep service up to us, I.e we waited some time in between drinks.
Product: Good food, great views & well air conditioned (it was 41 degree day)

Service: Everything we encountered was first class. Booking, staff, directions, food and the wine. We had a magnificent cruise of the harbour, with weather made to order. The staff were very professional an more than helpful. We enjoyed the Long Lunch on the top deck. Vivi attended to our lunch and was courteous, knowledgeable and very attentive. Definitely would like to repeat this cruise, but more than likely a dinner, and on New Years Eve. Thank you to all. Ted & Anne
Product: Chose the Long Lunch, ensured window seats, and a drinks package to match. No regrets.

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: I would give 31/2 stars.
We purchased the premium beverage package and the serving of alcohol was very slow - so that we didn't have too much! Waited 20 minutes for a beer! Food was served a lot faster and quality was quite good considering the number of people on board.
Product: I would give 31/2 stars. Refer to question 1.

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!!
Product: You can't beat lunching and cruising on Sydney Harbour - just beautiful. And not overly expensive.
