We where disappointed at being positioned near the side door as we are regular travellers on this vessel twice a year The service was good Meals good Yes we would have liked to be closer to the actual race Also this vessel should have a TV on this top deck rather than travel down a deck.

Service: The service was slow to start and in the end we were having desert and cheese and biscuits 20 mins before the cruise finished. They seemed very understaffed.
Product: We have been on many Captain Cook Cruises but this one was not up to their normal high standard.

Service: We had the best service with Joe he was fantastic!!! We highly recommend him and want him to serve us next year!! Was a bit different from last years Australia Day as when we got on the boat last year we were offered food and drink when walking in the room this year we had to wait 45min for the bar to open upstairs. We noticed people going down stair for drinks and they were being served alcoholic beverages. We paid more so I think we should have had the bar open upstairs as well. I also think if we don’t like the food or some of the food being served upstairs we should be able to go downstairs and get some of the food! Some of the people on the table didn’t like some of the food upstairs and tried to go downstairs to get food and was told if they wanted there food then we had to pay more. We were already paying $229 a person so why should we have to pay more? Maybe a seafood/roast/salad buffet should be considered for upstairs. We really like that spirits are included in upstairs though as not many drink wine! We were a table of 10.. we will be going again next year as we did last year maybe a big group discount could also help.. thank you for the experience,
Product: Please see my review earlier in this survey!!

Food was good, service a bit slow at times. Our area seemed to get neglected. As an experience in the whole, was disappointing compared to last time. We could not hear anything the commentator was saying, and there didn't seem to be much for those who could. This does lessen the experience when you don't know what is happening and when.
