Service: From the moment we boarded the Christmas Day lunch cruise it was clear that the crew and staff were very professional,helpful and friendly.
The service was terrific and the buffet lunch exceeded our expectations.
The wines being served were varied and of high quality.
It was a truly memorable experience and now we want to do again.
Product: Refer to previous comments.

Service was great, we enjoyed the day. It would have been nice to have Turkey as a main course choice - a bit more Çhristmassy' than Steak or Fish that you can have any day of the week!

Service: The staff were very friendly and attentive and nothing was too hard for them. the was one waiter who wasn't as knowledgeable;e about the alcohol selection, but he did try and was friendly
Product: Booked online, which was very easy, though did have a little difficulty after the purchase to confirm where the cruise left from, ie King Street Wharf or Circular Quay. But I did find the information in the end

Service: Food & Beverages were excellent. The Sky Deck was a delight ... not too crowded and nicely presented.

Again, the boarding experience was poor. Cannot understand why people with premium seating on top deck can't board as a priority.

Initial serving of drinks was poor. We were seated and waited 10 minutes before anyone came up to us for orders.

Staff were friendly and helpful once they were attending to us
Product: Its a little expensive, but quality of food & wine was good.

Expected prawns & oysters for that price.

Service: What another fantastic Christmas luncheon cruise...
Familiar faces, smiles all round, happy to see us again n join in the festivities.
Our usual wine was bought out; our window seat ready. Meal selection easy, deserts (did everyone get the extra), yum... The ladies were all so pleasant n attentive. Folks nearby joined in; yarns n piccies. Great time. AND you're on our beautiful harbour with those breathtaking views.
Product: Exceptional value, atmosphere was priceless.
3rd Christmas n looking forward, again, to Aussie Day, Val Day...

Service: Boarding was frustrating and slow. One crew member assigned to direct hundreds of people. No visual or verbal instructions as we waited.
Two gangways but only one crowded.
Staff onboard were very courteous. Food was very good although prawns strange colour inside either black or orange.
Toilets lacked toilet paper. Dinner plates ran out.
Product: Expected a better experience for the expensive tickets

Service: We had to get our seafood at the same time as our main roast-ended up on the same plate as did not have the chance to go back up as they selected the next tables to go up and get their food. A menu on each table would have been helpful or at least naming everything what was on offer, as we di not see the one menu at the end of the buffet table.
Product: Lovely being on the cruise but the food was only average and too many people crowding around.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Service: Service has always been excellent, and as we've been doing the Christmas Day cruise for a number of years, its so nice to see staff we recognise, that also recognise and welcome us.
Thank you for making Christmas Day for my Dad and I for the past few years.
Product: Dad and I tuck into the fresh seafood each year - it is our special treat for Christmas. No materialistic gifts need be shared, when this Christmas Day experience is something to look forward to each year.

Service: The food was nothing exceptional and it was disappointing that it seemed we had to have everything lumped together on the one plate eg prawns and oysters with ham, turkey and hot food.
The waiting staff were excellent , especially the drinks service.
Product: Felt it was rather expensive considering the quality of the food.
But as a one time experience it was an enjoyable experience

Service: The service is impeccable. The whole customer service experience cannot be faulted I have had excellent and prompt service every time I have had contact with them
Product: I have always enjoyed an excellent experience on the Captain Cook Christmas Luncheon Cruise. Food excellent and varied to suit all tastes and dietary requirements. I had the best view in the house - I paid a premium for a window seat and they didn't disappoint as I had one right at the front of the deck. I like the individual tables as opposed to other companies which put you on shared tables.

Service: Waiting service was excellent. Wine selection was not excellent - "premium" wines promised - cheaper wines served. Very old bottle age chardonnay was not pleasant to drink. Food was very average. Trip to toilets two decks down not acceptable for elderly patrons.
Product: Provided previously under "service"
Wine less than average - not "premium" as promised.
Food very average.
Toilet trips two decks down unacceptable for 70+ patrons.
