Service: Staff as usual were excellent, attentive and well mannered. Buffet food was fantastic, especially the large king prawns. Bar service great as always. The only disappointment was how far away we were from the race fleet.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you very much for your feedback. Our aim is always to provide an extensive variety of options maintaining the highest standards of quality, so we apologise if you felt this was not the case on this occasion. Our vessel master always endevours to positions the vessel as close to the racing action as possible, whilst also ensuring the safety of all of our customers. All passengers on board the Sydney 2000 are able to go outside and see a view of the racing action from above due to the size of the vessel. Thank you once again for your feedback.

Kind Regards,
Head of Customer Service
