Service: Had another great time on the harbour with the Capt. n crew for Aussie Day.
All the ships out; bunting displays… Looked fantastic, so colourful…
The exclusion zone seems to be getting larger, so we didn’t get as close to some of the activities. Still, we were in amongst the yacht ballet, the ferry race n the tall ship parade. Nice sausage sanga (except it was on a bun) n a few sherbets…
Product: Yep, always value for money plus

The day is great but queuing and boarding is very messy and people push to get on. No need to push if you have tickets. Once on board the mood is great but towards the front of the boat the a/c is poor and with people going in and out the doors the temperatures rise and it becomes uncomfortable. Pity as the cruise and meals are fine

Service: Service from staff was very good. It would be a good idea to put signs or labels on the food items.
The only down side was the food - we regularly go on Vagabond Cruises there buffet is outstanding, the captain cook one is nice but not great.
Product: No Issues at all regarding purchase

i Could I give 5 stars but because the cocktail I had , not happy at all, for $16 I had a small glass of juice with taste a peach and a strawberry on the top. Pure peaches it should be a little more thicker than a cordial. and cocktail drinks should be more excited than a glass of juice.
otherwise we had a great time. Thank you. Aida

Service: The service was excellent but we were disappointed that we paid $70 to get window seats and they way the boat pulled up they were useless and we had to head upstairs to see the celebrations
Product: Don’t think you should charge extra $70 for window seats on the wrong side of the boat for the entertainment

I would definitely use their service again the cruise was great not too crowded and great option to byo food. Sausage sizzle was delicious! Only reason for not receiving the five star is that it lacked a bit of atmosphere. There was a little too much commentary. Would have been good to have some good old Aussie music in the background, nothing loud but something for everyone to listen to. A few tables around us had the same feelings. Other than that would 100% Reccomend this cruise for Australia Day
