Review for Australia Day Sky Deck Lunch

Service: I was on the Christmas Day lunch cruise and the Australia Day Lunch Cruise - both on Sydney 2000. The serving staff were excellent, warm, friendly and bordering on brilliant.
When we queued up to board on Australia Day some three or four staff checked our tickets and directed us to the relevant queue for each deck. Our tickets were checked some 5 times before we got on the ship.
For Christmas lunch one woman had carriage of dealing with everybody and organising the queues. She did not have a hope, and the result was messy.
You have banners and a board out for the White Bay Cruise trip. Would it be so difficult to have a board out with a diagram of "what deck in which queue - where?".
Maybe even a banner with "Club Deck queue here" and another "Sky Deck queue here".
Product: Good food and excellent staff

Service: My Wife and I had the best experience ever on Sydney harbour for Australia day.
The food and service was magnificent.
The Sydney 2000 vessel was always in the right position at the right time and the food and drinks package was excellent too. Yum.
This is the only boat to be on when Australia day comes around.
5 stars from me Captain Cook Cruises and all the staff on The Sydney 2000 vessel.
Congratulations. ♥
Product: The food and drinks package was excellent.

Service: Boarding was a breeze, quick and efficient, queue moved along. The service provided by our wait staff was friendly and professional. The quality of food great and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. Wonderful way to spend Australia Day on the harbour.
Product: Little bit pricey but included food and alcohol so it's to be expected.

Service: In general, the service was good. One very minor criticism; this was a morning/afternoon harbor cruise with spirits, wine beer included. We wanted a ****** mary. Apparently, that was not considered a spirit. This may have been a language/cultural the U.S. ****** marys would always be available on this type of cruise.
Product: All expectations were exceeded.

The service wasn't great. Had to be reminded twice that we hadn't received our meal. The girls serving were very polite and accommodating though so it wasn't too much of a problem. The only main complaint we had was that the coffee was dreadful. No one at our table would drink it. We asked if cappuccino's were available and our server organised one for us. It was very good. I understand you can't make cappuccino for everyone so a decent quality brewed coffee would be good. I remember it was terrible last year too. Must say the quality and taste of all the meals presented was very good though.
