The Harbour Story Premium cruise was fantastic. From the first moment of contacting the reservation staff - this was done before the cruise day - to the actual cruise I was very impressed. All the company staff that I had contact with were professional, helpful and friendly.

The actual cruise was very enjoyable. I learnt quite a bit about Sydney Harbour. Which was impressive as I am a local The afternoon tea provided was very tasty and nicely packaged. Paul provided an excellent commentary on-board.

I will be back!!

It was excellent. The staff were very friendly and assisted me with whatever I required. They were very informative. The lady that gave all the information on the cruise made it fun with all her jokes. It was very relaxing and I enjoyed the drinks and cakes.
