Waitress did a wonderful job.
However when we boarded at 10am they then said no alcohol till 11.30, and we spend $200 each.
After 500 complaints they open the bar at 10.30, shouldn’t try and play shifties on your guest.

Service: This is our second Australia Day lunch cruise which was just as enjoyable and special as the last one in 2016. The itinerary varied to last time so we saw different things this time including lunch under the bridge alongside the 21 gun salute. Food, drink and staff were all excellent. Weather was perfect and where better to have spent 4+ hours than on Sydney Harbour. Will definitely plan to come along again. Thank you to everyone that made this such an enjoyable day for us.
Product: Great value and worth every cent.

Well catered for and plenty of room to move around.

Service: You had a non published start off policy of board at 1000 and wait until 1130 to get a drink which are all included.
Thankfully, the Women in charge decide after a couple of complaints to over-ride that decision and then everyone was happy.
Product: We have sailed before and this time, the window add on cost was a bit excessive even though we did pay for it.

Service: Staff very friendly,food wonderful.

The only disappointment was the windows were not clean on Australia Day lunch cruise and my photos can out with dirty rain drop. It diod not rain in the morning and I would think on such a big day the Windows would have been cleaned.
Product: Excellent service, food very good.

We had a fantastic Australia Day aboard MV Sydney 2000 on Sydney Harbour. The day was complimented by being right in the heart of all the Australia Day activities with great commentary, a superb buffet lunch and outstanding service.

Confusion as to when alcoholic beverages were to commence. Arrived at 10am and told no service until 11.30am. Decision was reversed at 10.30am. Very odd and poor that this was not advise at time of booking.
