Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner Cruise

There are some pairings on this planet that are just made for each other. Our Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner Cruise, which features a 6-course degustation alongside a Sydney harbour view, is one of these. Throughout this floating dinner experience, you and your guests will enjoy a superb selection of Penfolds private bin and vintage wines, including arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and an official Heritage Icon of South Australia, the Penfolds Grange.

Penfolds Grange is one of those names that is both ubiquitous and legendary with fine Australian wine. Max Schubert, a pioneering winemaker best known as the creator of Grange Hermitage, had ambitions in 1957 to make “a great wine that Australians would be proud of.” So it only made sense to take Penfolds’ winemaker sentiment and pair it with yet another heritage Australian brand and a cruising experience on Sydney harbour that literally takes your breath away.

For that truly special occasion, our Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner is an unforgettable waterfront luxury restaurant experience where every detail matters. The exquisite, all-inclusive 6 course degustation menu is matched with Penfolds’ finest wines making this harbour dinner cruise like no other.

Sit back and relax on a romantic dinner with a view or jump up and have a dance to our nightly contemporary live music.

Service: Unbelievable cruise - although Captain Cook were not responsible for it, the weather was sublime and making full use of every vantage point on the vessel certainly reaffirmed our opinion that Sydney remains the premier harbour city in the world.. No better way to see it for the price.
Product: Superb - about all I can say
