The entire Christmas Lunch Cruise was excellent! The staff were brilliant and couldn’t do enough to help my husband and I. I was on a mobility scooter due to my MS, the staff took me on board and I was seated in no time at all. Looking forward to rebooking Christmas Lunch for 2020!

Service: This is our third year doing the Christmas lunch upon the Captain Cook cruises and I must say it just keeps getting better and better. This year there was a group of nine of us and we are still Ravi g about our awesome Christmas Day. The staff were absolutely amazing. The service was fantastic. The food was plentiful and of high quality and none of us could fault anything.
We will definitely be doing the lunch cruise again next year and truly looking forward to it.
Well Done Captain Cook Cruises. Above and beyond exceptional lunch experience on the water.
Product: Absolutely sensational in every aspect. The service, food and experience is like no other. Our third year doing this and look forward to next year. Highly recommended. Five star
