Service: The cruise was good, the service personnel very friendly and helpful. The only thing we were missing was the fish and the mussels, as noted in the pre-cruise pamphlet. Also, we would have wished for a bit more variety in the cheeses. Other than that, the food was very good, in particular the prawns and oysters
Product: The advertised fish and mussels were missing from the food on offer. Also, there was not much variety in the types of cheeses on offer. Everything else was fine.

Service: I had booked for 36 people for my mums 60th birthday party. We have been on the Captain Cruise for the Seafood buffet lunch before which I was very impressed with, however, unfortunately this time I was extremely disappointed with the quality of food and the poor variety of food. I was extremely embarrassed in front of my friends and family making them pay $85 per head for terrible quality and terrible variety. A seafood buffet should include grilled fish, cold crabs or bugs, smoked salmon, oysters, and cold prawns. Unfortunately at this event, the only seafood offered was smoked salmon prawns and oysters. Also the non seafood options were terrible. The vegetable curry was awful, it was so obvious the veggies were from the frozen variety and their texture was tasteless and resembled cardboard. The salads were lacking substance and the roast ham was sliced roughly and was so salty.
I have enjoyed RSL food for 1/4 of the price over this buffet. It was so sad that mum didn't enjoy the food at her 60th birthday and I will never book an event or take the gamble that the quality will be as good as it used to be. It was way too expensive for the poor variety and so embarrassing for your lovely staff to be serving such a boring lunch.
Product: My above feedback will explain.

Service: The service at the table was good but not exceptional. More help with drink service would have enhanced the experience.
Product: The quality of the seafood was first rate, although some people in our group felt that the replenishment of the serving plates was slow to happen, considering that the cruise only lasted two hours.

The full complement of desserts was not available to all of our group as these were not in great abundance and not replenished.

Lovely cruise. Beautiful boat and friendly staff with delicious cocktails.
It was advertised as a seafood buffet however there was only smoked salmon and cold prawns as the seafood - no fresh fish or scallops or any other seafood. Only chicken and curry and rice and salad. I was disappointed, as I’m pescatarian (I don’t eat meat, only fish) and also celiac so I can’t have gluten - which meant I was limited to smoked salmon and salad and a couple prawns.

Service: The service on the cruise by the buffet staff was excellent - the bar staff seemed a little lost at first - could not find drink lists and had to wait for someone to come and help when we paid cash. The greeting staff were good but allowed large groups of overseas tourist on before others who were in the queue. All tables see allocated so I couldn’t see why they had to have precedence over other guests.
Product: Good variety, continuously replenished know one would have gone hungry.

Service: From purchasing tickets online to the lovely food and quick service to our seats once on board, this was very good.

The only down side was the 'circus' in getting aboard. Signage was not available to say that seafood buffet patrons were to gather at the bow of the vessel, and the other type of cruise were to gather towards the stern. An employee of the company (who was patient and trying his best) was assailed by many patrons requiring clarification with lots of shouting of directions and inability to be heard. Felt like being herded like animals...this could have been better handled to have a better experience.
Product: The seafood was very fresh, and there was lots of it, near empty trays were replenished regularly, there was a good choice of other food to pick from. The vegetable curry was particularly good.
Was not made aware that there was a coffee machine and filtered coffee available in another area.

Service: Easy on line booking experience. We boarded on time and were shown to our window table which had great views of Sydney harbour. We were served drinks quickly by a friendly and helpful member of staff. The buffet lunch was exceptional - great choice of seafood and salads. There was also a hot option (did not sample) as love seafood. Nice range of desserts, cheese and crackers. Coffee/tea available. Enjoyed informative and entertaining commentary about the harbour and it’s history. Great views of the Opera House and bridge. Would strongly recommend.

Service: The staff went out of their way to ensure that all went well and I was impressed with the way your staff reacted to a great influx of people especially at boarding time.
Your bar and waitress staff were exemplary offering top up drinks without having to wait until the drinks were finished.
It was my wife's birthday and the cabin waitress, without any request being made, produced a small cake with a sparkler - very thoughtful and to the delight of my wife.
The buffet food was good but somewhat frantic due to the number of guests at the buffet table.
All in all the buffet cruise was great value and I would recommend anyone to take the cruise.
Product: Could have been spread out to minimise activity in a small serving area

Seniors Seafood Buffet Cruise – Captain Cook Cruises 17/02/2019 Review
The staff in the booking office were very pleasant and courteous as usual.This was the 5th or 6th year that 3 of my friends and I have been on the Seniors Seafood Buffet Cruise. Last year I complained about the absence of crab on the buffet and also that the price had risen by another $5.00. This year again there wasn't any crab on the buffet. In previous years there was a couple of meat dishes and a vegetable curry which was quite nice but there wasn't any meat except for some ham swimming in some kind of liquid and some chicken drumsticks also swimming in some kind of liquid. Also the price had risen by another $4.00 making it $59.00. I don't believe that the food was up to standard and there wasn’t much of it. Next year the price will probably be well into the $60s mark and I will be seriously considering if it is worth attending again. The quality and variety of the food was even lower than last year and I’m sorry but I can only give 3 stars as the standard has dropped since 2017 when I would have given 5 stars.

Service: Excellent information delivery over speaker system perfectly timed with arriving at locations. We liked our window seat and the servers. The only downside was the food - it was initially served upon boarding and then food service stopped within an hour of our two hour cruise. More food would have been nice as we didn't get to eat everything we wanted...
Product: Needed more continual bringing out of food. Ran out of Ham and not replenished. Delicious food otherwise.

On the whole an excellent outing. We would have liked our table cleared a little earlier. In the end I approached an attendant to clear the first course of plates so we could enjoy the rest of our meal. We were celebrating my son's 50th birthday.

Service: For a buffet, there was far too few options. For vegetarians, there was only a spicy vegetable curry which contained no protein. For vegans, the salads had cheese. There was no non-dairy milk for coffee to purchase (i requested soy milk, a standard at all places now). The ham, one of only 2 meat options separate from the seafood, ran out an hour into the cruise. It took the chef over half an hour to produce more, by which time you had to be quick to collect dessert because eveything began to be packed up 20mins before arriving at circular quay. The automated coffee machine started to produce watery hot chocolate with minimal cocoa (compared to earlier in the cruise) towards the end. A stunning boat, friendly attentive staff, but terrible food options given the cost.

Service: Drinks waiter confused our order and brought us a $55 bottle of wine (after charging our credit card) instead of a glass! Disappointed not to have the crab salad we had last year. Having said that we had a great outing, food was excellent and the trip was good value. Would certainly recommend it to friends. We have done the buffet lunch around Christmas 2 years in a row and would do it again next year.
Product: Excellent value, fresh food.

Whole experience was very good and have recommended to other family members. Staff were helpful and friendly.
One small disappointment- we were surprised that the dessert buffet did not have a Christmas theme, considering this was just two days before Christmas and I am sure that many of your customers were enjoying the event as part of their extended Christmas celebrations.

Thank you

Ship was clean and beautiful, food was brought out straight away and constantly topped up - so no-one went hungry and the bar service excellent. We picked a terrific day and the boat was only about half full. Great commentary even for locals to learn more about our beautiful harbour. Only down side was the cost of a bottle of wine - $60 was a bit over the top for a $13 bottle

Service: Our group have taken this buffet lunch cruise 4 times over the past 5 years and this year were very disappointed with the experience. The buffet was quite limited, and not a lot of choice. One of our group had been on the exact same cruise 2 weeks earlier and the choice was better. The desserts were very poor with limited variety of fruit (the cheapest available it seemed) and the drinks were extremely expensive........$11-$12 for a glass of wine is highway robbery. On top of all that, the section was only half full and we were still crammed in with barely room to move, especially eating with no room to move your arms. Whilst we appreciated the window seating, we could not move from our seats backing on to the window as there was no room to move the seat back even a few centimetres to get out !! The staff came around taking our serviettes 45 minutes before the end of the cruise, like they were stopping guests from further eating. We will seriously not consider this again next year for our group.
Product: Very disappointing choice, limited compared to previous cruises with same company. Expensive drinks.

The actual cruise was great. The food was also good also maybe a little more variety would be better. I would have rated it 4.5- 5 stars stars however the manager was very rude, it was a lady, we explained we booked a buffet lunch and was told by Olivia the person we booked with that it would be 3.5hr cruise and after 2.5 hrs we were asked to get off the boat. when i tried to explain this manager was extremely rude did not want to listen.She just wanted to know why we didnt get off when she asked. Her service was absolutely discussing. Its a shame she ruined the experience for our group of 15. The manager needs to work on the people skills and service. The rest was just great.

Service: Disappointed...we have been on lots of Captain Cook cruises and have loved them. This cruise was well below par. Food was sloppy and cold even though we were one of the first tables to eat after leaving Darling Harbour Wharf. Staff were standing around chatting and looking totally fed up, no energy or engaging with customers. The ship looked very untidy, items thrown in corners and just general mess. There was no music or running commentary. I took my husband for his birthday as we have many times before for family celebrations ( Xmas, Mothersday, Easter and Vivid also), but I am sad to say we will probably not be returning after the sad and disappointing cruise we had on Sunday.

Service: I would have given 5 stars except because of the train fiasco, i rang ahead as I didn't think my friend and would make it even though we managed to get a taxi from Turella train station it was touch and go. I asked the reception if they could still let my niece and husband board ( as they were over from Perth and i wanted to shout them the cruise )and if we didn't make it so be it that we would forfeit those fares. The answer I got was no even though i quoted the booking number etc. My email address was the same name as my credit card. I think in those circumstances with the rail network going down there could have been some understanding shown. We did make the cruise with a few minutes to spare and thoroughly enjoyed it as did my Niece and Husband.

Service: I would definitely recommend Captain Cook cruises. We had a lovely day and found the staff outstanding. What a beautiful harbour to cruise around.

We did start out with a small problem where my daughter bought along an ice cream cake for my birthday and asked the staff to put it into the freezer. The cake was only put in the fridge and it melted. Your staff not only replaced our cake with another one but also gave us a free bottle of wine. And not only that we were given an extra trip around the harbour - just our little group on our own. We were more than impressed with the exceptional attention the staff on board provided us with. Every one left the boat so happy and loved the day. I don't think I have every been treated so well by staff anywhere. They were so lovely. Thanks again for a lovely day.
Product: A fantastic day with Captain Cook cruises on our beautiful harbour. Only one complaint the food does not cater enough for children. We had a 9 year old with us and not much appealed to him even though we'd paid a lot for his meal. We all thought there could have at least been fish and chips or chicken and chips or even pasta that appeals to children. Maybe worth looking into.

Service: Service is OK. I booked a seafood buffet but didn't really meet our expectation of a seafood buffet. It's like a normal buffet in a 2-3 star hotel with seafood on the side.... The duration seems to be a bit short considering guests need to eat and see the views. We were mostly rushing up and rushing down.... Overall, it is good for a one-time experience.
Product: Not the seafoos buffet I was expecting. And the little seafood that was there don't taste very good.

Overall the service is good, and I did enjoy the lunch with my girlfriend on Captain Cook Cruises. The recorded audio introduced all the iconic buildings (e.g. Sydney Opera House & Harbour Bridge) and spots in detail. Yet, I think the frequency of staff collecting plates could be faster so that customers do not need to try and manage the table's space so hard.

Product: The buffet was great value for money for the adults. However the price for the children was quite high and there wasn't much for young children to eat. Considering it was Mother's Day, and obviously children would be celebrating with their mothers, I think there should be some consideration in the menu for children.

Was gifted a Seafood Buffet Lunch Cruise last year form my son and had a great time. Decided to take my mother on the same cruise. Apart from the food it was like comparing chalk to cheese. The vessel was not as good, the staff were not as good or as welcoming as the previous cruise. And the biggest disappointment though was the commentary. A third of the commentary was not played, and what was played was inaudible.

Service: Three of my friends and I have been on this cruise for the past 5 years. The staff in the booking office are always very helpful and pleasant. Once on board the wait staff are also very helpful and pleasant and this year was no exception. Unfortunately this year the seafood was very disappointing. Although the price went up by $5.00 there wasn't any crab on the buffet and the prawns were not up to standard. They were very watery and not very flavoursome. I have seen the price of this cruise rise from $39.00 to $55.00 over the past 5 years and one would expect that the quality of the food should be maintained. If the food had been the same standard as it has been in the past 5 years I would have given 5 stars.

The only thing the group thought we needed more time, say from 12.30 departure to arriving back and circular quay at 2.30pm. Everyone dining out really needs at least 2 hours to sit, eat and chat. that's what dining out it is all about, ..one and half hours was just not enough time, it was a little rushed. We will certainly go again when the special offer is on.

The cruise was very enjoyable - food was excellent - service very good - one issue was that the cruise was for 2 hours and I was disappointed that we called into Darling Harbour wharf within that time frame when we would have preferred to see more of the Harbour, perhaps further up the Parramatta River, especially when my husband & I paid more for a window seat X 5 people!!

Service: The greeting on land by (Captain Cook look alike) was friendly and welcoming.To make the trip more authentic a big screen depicticting the HX of sydney harbour would give a more visually perceptive view of the past.The crew were very friendly and interactive with the customers,The food was ok,a bush band playing softly and intermittendly in the background????
Product: Salads not enough variety, mundane and did not excite the taste buds

Service: We were happy with the service, staff were polite and cleaned table up promptly when we had finished food and drinks.
Product: I enjoyed the food but relatives would have liked more of a selection of roast meats and standard veg as they are not seafood lovers but chose this cruise because it fitted in our schedule but they enjoyed the cruise regardless and the weather was fantastic on the day. Must say it was good value for money.

Service: Crew were good.
Product: Food was average to below average. I am unable to think of anything I'd go back for. Long queues, desert was empty for about 30 minutes. Mussels had no flavor (frozen) oyster poor quality. As bad as it sound the best was an overly processed surimi salad. That's not a compliment.

Service: Very long queue at buffet. It would be better if some organisation table by table could take place. The food itself was average for the main course and dessert was below a reasonable standard.
The self serve tea/coffee was appalling. The sign said both tea and were on the hot plate, but both jugs had teabags. There was no coffee there, and the coffee from the machine could only be described as coloured hot water.
We have been on this cruise before and felt its standard has declined to the extent that we are unlikely to go again.

Our group had a wonderful time. The ship itself was beautiful, staff were very patient and accommodating with our sometimes fussy seniors. Buffet was kept topped up at all times and checking food levels, she was very nice and efficient. Was also impressed by how clean and spacious the toilets were. Fantastic experience ,however our clients wish that it was a longer trip around the harbour. Big compliment to the frontline staff, definitely recommend it to family and friends. Thanks so much Team !

Service: We thought the seafood buffet was only adequate.

As we had been shown around Sydney by a local we thought the canned commentary was very lacking in information about recent changes to the Sydney landscape. Namely the new development in Barangaro and the new casino.

The ship is lovely and views are amazing. However the food served at the buffet is very poor and quite expensive for what is on offer. Not much variety, not a lot of it, and not the best quality. I also got the Premium Bar package which doesn’t include spirits so I had to buy my drinks. Overall very disappointing.
