Long Lunch thumbnail

Is there anything better than an invitation to a long lunch with good company, great water views and sensational cuisine? Weekends are fantastic but it's even more indulgent during the week ...

Gather the troops - even the most nay-saying harpie will love this cruise. As much as I love a party at home, I'm exhausted just thinking about the shopping, cooking and cleaning. I pride myself on running a tight ship and my crew are arguably the best polishers in Sydney. But to clean my own home from top to bottom twice in 24 hours, once before the guests arrive and then again after they leave, doesn't seem efficient to me.

If you have a celebration coming up, you could hoist the work overboard, and let me, my Officers and Crew accept the load. You don't even need a reason - take a certain set of ladies who join us once a month on a Wednesday for what they call their "monthly sabbatical". I'd bet my Captain's braids their husbands are very happy men come Thursday morning.

The cruise departs from both No.1 King Street Wharf at 12 noon (a short 6 minute walk from Wynyard Station via the Wynyard Walk) and Circular Quay at 12.30pm (bus, train and ferries at your doorstep). For the next three and a quarter hours all you have to do is enjoy the million dollar views and your choice of entree, main course and dessert from the Top Deck Menu. My recommendation, do try a dessert wine or liqueur at the end of your meal - a good start is essential, but a great finish makes it memorable.

Service: The staff were very friendly and obliging. The booking online was very easy.

Product: Food was perfectly cooked and well presented. We paid extra for a window seat, but there were only a small number on the deck so it was possibly a waste of money as everyone had window seats., but we weren't to know. It was a fantastic way to spend a cloudy day.

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.

Thank you

Second time we have done the long lunch cruise fantastic and worth the effort. Extremely disappointing that there was no commentary, last time we did this cruise there was a commentary. Believe you should run the commentary on the long lunch cruise instead of just being told the other products have the commentary not this one showed total lack of value for money. Apart from that enjoyable time.

Service: The food was good, but I didn't like that the trip at the end was from one port to the other one. You sell a three our tour, and half of the time we where waitin at the port, that wasn't fare.

Product: The trip was nice at the beginning, but then we where taken from one port to the other one.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for your feedback and we were glad to read your enjoyed our menu. The Long Lunch is a combination of the Top Deck Lunch and our Harbour Highlights cruise where we do make brief stops and our two departure and arrival stops to enable other clients on shorter cruises to embark and disembark. We are sorry that you felt we did not met your expectations as the long lunch is very often highly rated.

Service: Hi there

On Saturday 4th March we went on your 3 course long lunch Sydney - worst experience ever! Before booking I chatted to one of your customer service representatives and confirmed you cater for vegans. I then booked and stated 3 vegans. The food was horrible and the staff were uneducated. I told the waitress on arrival anyway and just to be sure explained what vegan meant. First course we were offered ravioli - it came with Parmesan cheese, which we sent back, we were then offered without or a salad. We reordered the ravioli (we later found out it wasn't special ravioli and contained eggs). Main course we had vegetable gratin (eggplant and sweet potato) dry and terrible and for dessert "fruit salad" if you can call it that! (See pic). I left hungry!

No milk alternatives available!

We paid $778 for 7 of us.

The food definitely put a damper on the celebrations, my brother proposed to his girlfriend.

To say I am disappointed would be the understatement of the year!

Product: Service wasn't great either...would love someone to call me from customer service.

Had American visitors. Great boat and good lunch. No commentary on top deck. 3 Hours plus on boat and only did repeat small circle from Quay to Bradleys Head under Bridge to King Street Wharf and back to Quay for drop off-pick up and same circle again. Had to go to bottom deck to get commentary and would have been wiser catching the Manly Ferry and have lunch there. For time on boat saw next to nothing of the Harbour. Very disappointing experience.

Cruise & food excellent. Waiting staff attentive, but did not have a great grasp of english which lead to some misunderstandings when taking drinks order. Also do not think it is appropriate to address me by my surname when asking for my feedback. If you use surnames please use a title as well! So you should have addressed me as "Hi Ms Laird"

Service: Our meals came out quickly and were acceptable in terms of taste and quality, but we had to keep asking for drinks (as we had the drinks package). We were not offered tea and coffee although other people around us were! We were also a bit disappointed with the 'Long Lunch' experience. There was nothing long about it. It was over and done with so quickly in terms of the lunch part, than we got bored as the boat did it's 2nd lap of Sydney Harbour, which was a bit too repetitive for our taste. Had it been clearer at time of booking that we should expect this, then we wouldn't have booked this type of cruise.

Product: Although the food was acceptable, the wait staff were either couldn't be bothered or deliberately try to limit the drinks package. As it was hard to order a drink. Even by going to the bar, we were then told someone would come to the table to take our drinks order.

Service: The cruise was terrific. However, the person serving us, was not too clued in about my severe allergy to garlic -- after I had notified the respective booking agent! Also, not very attentive at the table for example clearing the dishes, making sure our water jug was filled. The as mentioned before hit all the points of interest so that part was great.

Product: Paid more than what it was worth. Not a great variety of wine.

Service: The cruse was excellent and as I have been twice in the past year, would consider again. However, my meal 'Grilled Salmon' was dry when I did the cruise in October last year, so would suggest the crew be advised to be careful with the temperature of the bain marie settings so meals are not spoiled for passengers. I like the whole experience because it is very relaxing, the wait staff are attentive and unobtrusive so I think you have a good formula going. The standards you set are apparent, so need to manage accordingly. Many thanks for taking the time to consider my feedback. Kind regards, Lois Perks 02 9923 6273

Service: We expected the same cruise that we had last time with the beautiful seafood buffet. This was a bit restricted. The Extra alcohol package was limited to only a few beverages (beer) This could have been explained better prior to purchase. We generally had a lovely day. The staff were very helpful and efficient.

Product: Food of excellent quality. My son was sea sick and no one offered any suggestions. He had to purchase lemonade and was unable to eat any of his meal. I found him on the lower level of the boat near the exhaust. This didn't help his sea sickness. I told several staff members that he was sick. Im sure staff must know of a more suitable place to hang out if someone is sick.

Service: Food okay and reasonable amount. The waitress who mainly dealt with us was very good. We were seated on a raised platform and this could have been a problem as there were elderly people in our party. Also didn't like having to go all the way downstairs to use the toilets.

Service: Was good but our waitress forgot to bring my husbands beer and other customers were offered additional bread rolls and we were not offered extra despite paying for the long lunch.

Product: Good but the waiter forgot to bring drinks we ordered.

The view was great but the glass that my drink came in was very dirty and I still had to pay for it. And the meal took ages to come. At the end we where told to go else where because they where setting up for dinner. Wouldn't do it agin.

Service: Everything was lovely, and my family from Scotland enjoyed it. Was a little bit hard for my mother (she's 87) to climb all of those stairs to the top deck but she did get there in the end. Maybe a suggestion I have is putting in a chair lift to help with people with a disability as I know there will be other people with more mobility issues than my mother.

Product: The food was lovely and came out quite quickly, the only thing was we had to pay for coffee/tea and I thought it would have been in the price of the dinner. Didn't mind that the other drinks had to be purchased.

Staff, cruise, food great. Would like to settle in before lunch is served with a couple of champagnes then a break between courses so we can enjoy a different wine with each course. Felt rushed & spoiled the great trip. This was my 4th & last. thanks

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Thank you for your feedback on our long lunch and we were delighted to welcome you back on board and to read that you found the staff, food and cruise great. We are disappointed to read that you found the service too rushed as our hospitality staff can always be asked to meet your requirements form your group.

We do look forward to welcoming you back on board in the future.

Kind Regards,
Head of Customer Service
Captain Cook Cruises

We had a fantastic time. The food was excellent but the drink service at times was a little slow. We would definitely come back. Thanks.

We were a bit squashed at the table, and we noticed that the portions were slightly different for the same dish. My steak was overcooked even though I was specific with the order.

However, the staff was pleasant and the service was quick. The wine was enjoyable and the atmosphere was pleasant. Overall, everyone had a relaxing experience which was ultimately the goal for our work function.

We enjoyed the cruise, it was smooth sailing. Thanks!
