YOUR SAY NEW YEARS EVE - I was on John Cadman II on NYE and I couldn’t have had a better time. Everything about the cruise was perfect, the staff were polite and all retained their sense of fun and humour. Thanks to the crew for a great way to see in the New Year. Sallie-Ann, VIC

Service: Christmas with the Captain n crew is such an amazing way to spend an often stressful time. But not when relaxing with this gang n other travellers. Lunch, drinks, fantastic company, wonderful views: excellent. Catching up with ol' friends n making new ones. Everyone is up for a fun time n that's what you find...
Product: Value plus that bit extra

Service: Great service from the friendly staff and a lovely leisurely journey around beautiful Sydney Harbour.
Product: For the most part the food was very good but the desserts were very disappointing.

Service: Food and service was lovely
Our main meal was a tad slow coming out but delicious once it arrived
We think a delay happened in kitchen? A guess. Other tables had theirs promptly from what we could see
Product: Pretty good value meal for Christmas Day lunch

The services was good, the food good but I’ve been on the Showboat Cruise years ago and was much better, the entertainment was to repetitious and the singers voice not pleasant penetrating, the girls on stage put in 100 per cent and costumes lovely, so overall I give it 65per cent, needs improvement.

The whole experience of the Christmas lunch, the harbour cruise, the service, and, of course, the view, was exquisite. We had done the cruise before, but this time we were on the top floor, at the front. Calm day made for smooth travel. Service was friendly, quick, and yet on over-bearing. The fixed menu was fine and we enjoyed was we chose. The ability to go outside to the front of the ship was great too. All round, very enjoyable and memorable.

Service: It was a great experience but the fruit replacement GF option was a bit poor. I like fruit but it seemed like make do effort. Otherwise the food was good and the wine was good.
We will definitely do it again.
Product: Please see above comments
