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: I have been on many Captain Cook Lunch cruises. The service on my last cruise was perfect. The hard faced, no smile woman in the ticked office was the only exception. On board, everything was wonderful as usual. I love these lunch cruises.

Product: A lovely meal - all 3 courses. Just the wine is a little expensive.

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.
