Service: The staff were very friendly and courteous. The 3 - course lunch was awesome. The cruise was really enjoyable with the beautiful view from the windows of the ship. Our table was right by the window. We got some wonderful pictures from the upper deck of the Sydney Opera house and the Harbour Bridge.
Product: We purchased the tickets online from India. Actually, we purchased the ticket for an incorrect date initially. We sent an email to the customer service email given in the booking confirmation and asked for a date change. They changed the date for the Cruise without a fee. We were really happy about that. Also, we had no issues even after going there with the online booking that we made.

Service: Table service very good.

Spent too much time at Kings St Warf and Circular Key.

Needs to be more variety with routes taken ie the second route should differ from the first.
Product: See above comment about routes

We were disappointed in the whole dinning room. We thought for the money $230 dollars you could have white tablecloth better table settings!!
Service and food very good.
Overall not good enough for overseas visitors. We should show more in our beautiful harbour.

Service: Our Family had a very special Birthday Celebration for 11Adults and 11children on Easter Saturday ,on board Sydney 2000. We were delighted to have our 2 large tables in the Sky Deck with unobstructed views of the Harbour and space for us to step out on the Deck! We appreciated the unexpected privacy .
The food and service was of high standard. We appreciated the assistance of the Waitstaff, Also extra attention was required as we brought 2 cakes.
For Senior members of our group the distance to the toilets was a challenge .
It was a great celebration for all the family !!
Thank you to the Staff of Captain Cook Cruises

All was very much on time

Service: We were welcomed warmly by all the staff and our table waitress was very attentive.
Product: We had a great seat and were well taken care of. We originally had booked but due to an illness had to cancel the original booking. We were very impressed to be able to postpone out booking until a suitable date. Very user friendly. The only negative was that with the long lunch booking, we opted for the beverage package and found that we had to pay for the coffee. That was a bit grinchy, not a good look.

Service: The cruise, staff, food, and service were excellent. My only negative is the fact that we were so rushed with the food. The second the knife and fork were placed on our plates, there was someone there to clear them and before we could have one sip of the wine we purchased, the next course was placed in front of us. I ate much too fast and was ill after I got home. Even just 5 minutes between courses would have made a big difference.
I would recommend this experience to others but would warn them not to eat the food as soon as it was delivered.
Product: Long, lovely cruise, short, rushed lunch.
