Service: Good Afternoon,
I would just like to say that your customer service is above and beyond, from all levels of your staff from the waitresses, admin, chefs, doormen nothing was too much trouble.
Everything about booking this venue has been made trouble free, all of the staff that myself or our guest dealt with were more than competent.



Thanks much appreciated

Service: The overall experience was good but could have been great with the front desk experience from the pier and wharf desk. We had over 35+ guest for long lunch cruise and was placed in the private section of the ship. It was such a beautiful experience. Our staff complimented on the 3 course meal. It was delicious. We had a hiccup with guest seats but they quickly got that rectified and hassle free. They were accommodating.

The only bad experience I had was when the Pier desk only printed 25 onboard passes but I had increased the number of guests since my initial booking. The wharf 1 desk did not believe that I was supplied short and refused to provide the right number of boarding passes even after I have collected all 25 passes from all our staff to physically show her. Pier desk should have counted the passes to match what was on the amended record document. Luckily, I had the print out document. So she asked that I showed it to the staff onboard. Also, I was told that I could arrange the drink package when we get onboard but later asked to do so at the wharf 1 desk before the ship leaves so I had to run and pay this at wharf 1.

It would also be good to know when the desserts are being served. Most of us was on the deck and didnt realise that the dessert plates had been placed on our table.
Apart from that....It was good, and enjoyable experience.
Product: The food was delicious! Our staff compliment on the variety of choices. It was perfect!

Service: This day was to be a special occasion for us and all the arrangements were to our real satisfaction.
Original booking was courteously handled; our personal table by the window was well selected by staff and both the meal and table service were professionally presented.
Product: four stars indicate a high standard anyway and as we all know, there is always room for improvement.
Perhaps some commentary on the later stages of the cruise (after lunch) would be appreciated by guests.

Service: we enjoyed very much our cruise, the waitress that service us, Vivian was great , very helpful with my kids, she made our experience very lovely

the cons,
it was a bit disappointing no having help to take the pram up the stairs to the top level - as we have an infant 5 months old with us and she was asleep

it would make our experience more enjoyable if the cruise offer some extra service for the kids - also a different menu for kids under 10 year old, as my son 5 year old had only one third of the main meal
Product: Delicious food, great seat spot , want to do other cruise to enjoy the top of the boat, as this time was a bit harder as i had my 5 month old baby with us and was a bit windy day

Service: Booking office staff great as we were running late , waiter staff were all brand new and being trained so was a little frustrating as they were doing some random stuff and we had to keep calling them over to ask for things . The meal was nice but felt very rushed - it could have easily been spread over the whole cruise rather than crammed into the first hour - especially as they were only 7 other tables on the deck .
Product: Not as good as expected especially with untrained waiters

We were on the Long Lunch cruise and we were disappointed that their was no commentary . We also paid for the drink package and found that once all course were served the staff seemed to slow down on the table service . We are not big drinkers but I don't think we should have to chase staff to ask for a drink.

Service: The one stand out feature of our trip on Wednesday 24th October was the young lady that looked after us that day. We were up on the top deck for a long lunch. As I do not remember the name of the young lady perhaps you could look at your roster and tell her what asset she is to your business. The food was of a very good standard and the cruise itself was very enjoyable. The only criticism we have would be the dessert. We feel that they should serve cream or ice cream with the slices as they are a little dry without anything. Once again our congratulations to the young lass that served us, WELL DONE.

The cruise was lovely and the lunch was delicious!
We did a lot of research before selecting the Long Lunch Cruise which was supposed to have been about 3 1/2 hours, but in the end it was only 2 hours long. We could have stayed on board for another loop around the harbour, but that would have taken another two hours and we would have missed our collection time. We should rather have chosen a cruise with a proper commentary.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for your review of your Long Lunch Cruise. Our cruise times are listed on our website for complete transparency for our customers and we follow this as closely as possible. We also display our cruise routes on our website for all our cruises to enable customers the opportunity to know where they will be cruising and what to expect.

We had booked our cruise for March. However, my wife suffered an illness just at that time which put her in a wheel-chair. Captain cook Cruises were very helpful in allowing us to postpone our cruise, which we then had two weeks ago. We are very grateful for the assistance we received getting on and off and for the personalised service given to us on the lower deck, by the lovely and friendly staff.

It is a big thing for us, that despite disability we can still enjoy so many things in life.

Thank you so much.

Ensure that the waiters don’t get the order wrong as he did with me on more than one occasion. If cooking beef tenderloin to a medium request, that it is cooked right through and not raw in the middle as was mine. I actually fainted and vomited my food because of my inability to digest the raw meat.

Service: The visual experience was spectacular but the dining experience was underwhelming.The medium rare steak was overdone and quite dry.I commented about this to the lady who served us but there was no offer to rectify the situation.Her English was poor and she may not have understood.Cooking a steak is not rocket science and I am surprised that the task was beyond the so called chef.I thought that a coffee would be supplied in the cost of the meal.It was not.I received an instant coffee for $4.00.That's right...an instant coffee!If I was rating this on the food alone it would probably rate 1.5 stars.
Product: I already did.To summarise the medium rare steak was closer to well done and was dry and the coffee was an extra charge when it arrived was intant coffee not brewed.Also all staf should be able to communicate well in English.

They also appreciated the insights provided by the commentary and felt it was a great addition to their experience.

Service: Long lunch menu was value for money - 3 courses X 3 choices is in line with Sheraton / Westin/ Intercontinental.
Staff attentive, efficient & courteous - went the extra yard not only for my wife's birthday ( sparkler on her desert & sang happy birthday to her) but also to the couples either side celebrating wedding anniversaries ( sparklers on both dessert & verbal congratulations).
As I am still recovering from pulling both hamstrings they could see my wife's concern about the 24 steps down the toilet. They took the effort to check on me , without my being aware, & then advised her I was OK.
Product: As indicated above the standard of the 3 courses X 3 choices was comparable to Sheraton/ Westin / Intercontinental main restaurants & at discounted $79 PP good value while the full price of $99 PP is of comparable value.

I had to call to make a booking as the is no option for infants online. I was assured that I could have a highchair for my 8 month old only to be told that they only offer a booster seat which was far too small for her to reach the table.
Whilst this was unpleasant, the service we received was great. They offered to move our table due to a large rowdy group next to us and the food was superb. Despite a rocky start, the whole 3.5hr cruise was a lovely day out.

Product: pretty bland menu it was more an appitiser serving not lunch but still good for the price and sail.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for your review of your Long Lunch Cruise experience. We were disappointed to read that you felt that there were some aspects of the cruise that could improve. We always encourage our disabled guests to opt for seating on our show deck, as this is disabled friendly. Seating on upper levels of the vessel is the customers prerogative, and whilst we will always try to accommodate customers to the best of our ability, this is the customers decision with which we are not responsible for. Thank you for your suggestions regarding the seating and menu, we will forward this to our hospitality and catering manager for review.

Once again, thank you for your review.

The food was nice, but I felt like because I rode alone, the wait staff didn’t pay as much attention to me. I also thought the music (80s hits) didn’t match the vibe of the cruise and was a little obnoxious. The views were nice and I liked that rode past places multiple times so I could get plenty of pictures.

Service: What they did wrong.

Communication, MINUS ONE.
Tired to organise a birthday cake, seemed impossible, as no communication back from answer phone, and COMPLETE INABILITY to talk to anyone.

Food better than expected.

Shuffle between pick up and drop offs, longer and more than expected, but not a complaint Reality I guess.
Product: iN ADVANCE 100 PERCENT TOO LONG, ESPECIALLY AS BOAT HALF EMPTY, ON OUR LEVEL.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you for your recent review of our Long Lunch Cruise. We were disappointed to read that you felt the entertainment and photography wasn’t to your standards. Selected cruises offer entertainment; however, the design of the Long Lunch Cruise is focused on a conversational ambience and the stunning setting. We outsource photographers as an additional optional courtesy for customers who may want a memento to remember their time on the harbour.

Once again thank you for your feedback.

One of our group had a fall and had to use a wheelchair. From staff at the check in to staff on the cruise ship, we were attended to in a professional and courteous manner. Our group was moved from the top deck to the deck below to accommodate the wheelchair and our waiter was very friendly and courteous. The same staff member was helped by another member to get the chair off an up the ramp to level ground, we are very grateful for the kind assistance.

Service: The cruise, staff, food, and service were excellent. My only negative is the fact that we were so rushed with the food. The second the knife and fork were placed on our plates, there was someone there to clear them and before we could have one sip of the wine we purchased, the next course was placed in front of us. I ate much too fast and was ill after I got home. Even just 5 minutes between courses would have made a big difference.
I would recommend this experience to others but would warn them not to eat the food as soon as it was delivered.

Service: We celebrated our parent's 50th wedding anniversary on a Long Lunch cruise recently. While every effort was made to accommodate some dietary needs prior to the cruise, there was confusion on board at the time of service. Overall, service was very good, but the reservation staff provided misinformation to what was available from the kitchen. The entire family felt well looked after, the cruise ship was well maintained, the viewing windows were great as was the flexibility to come and go onto the top viewing deck. Narration on the top deck was fun too. Highly recommended.
Product: Value for money was excellent. We were able to use our Entertainment Book discount.

We had a lovely time at the cruise loved the food and the service was great.
We had a long lunch cruise which went for 3 hours.
We were annoyed we thought we would be cruising around more, instead of disembarking customers and picking up constantly from Darling Harbour and Circular Quay.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,  

Thank you for your review of our Long Lunch Cruise. We were disappointed to read that you felt we were not able to meet your expectations regarding your cruise itinerary. The Long Lunch Cruise coincides with our other cruise options, which means we need to disembark these passengers. The cruise times are not affected and the cruise follows the route displayed on our website as closely as possible. We agree the cruise is a lovely time with great food and service. 

Once again thank you for your feedback.

Service: Firstly we had the window table I had requested for our group of 6 adults and 5 children. Our waitress was very friendly and professional, everyone enjoyed their food, including the kids. Service was very good too. I am 70 and have bad knees, and I found the two levels of stairs very difficult to and from the restroom. After one restroom visit, I chose not to drink again,even water, as |the stairs were too painful for me to navigate. I really like the top deck, but would hesitate to go again unless an elevator is installed, and a toilet really is necessary on the top deck. Do any of your lunch cruise ships have an elevator?

Product: The food ended halfway through the cruise and the "long" part of the cruise was just going to go along the same route, I expected to travel up the river to see other scenery than that I had just had through lunch. A cup of ta or coffee during the last part of the cruise would have been great. I got off the boat halfway through.

Service: The lunch was excellent and the service was also first rate; very efficient but friendly and unobtrusive.
I thought some commentary would have been helpful and it seem strange that the long lunch cruise was basically two circuits of the same parts of the harbour.
I would however recommend the cruise and long lunch.
Product: I thought the web site was a bit vague at times and when i attempted to ring for more information the phone continually dropped out as soon as I chose an option

We also had to request tea and coffee and further drinks during the second half of the cruise when service seemed to halt. Possibly this was because Sundays are busy but I enjoyed our first experience last year more.

Our meal was excellent and the service was very professional, but at the same time friendly. The route the boat took was interesting and relaxing and being able to linger a while in some spots and just observe, was magic. We will be looking for other opportunities to join you.

I booked the lunch cruise as a present for my parents; as usual, the cruise and the lunch were enjoyed. However, they were shocked and disappointed - as was I when I heard - that they were charged for tea & coffee. You charge up to $100 for this lunch and then have the audacity to charge extra for something that is assumed to be included - in fact, I've booked these cruises several times in the past for myself and my parents, and we don't recall being charged extra for tea and coffee.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer, 

Thank you for your review of our Long Lunch Cruise. We were disappointed to read of your misunderstanding regarding our beverages. Over the three years most  of our dining cruises like all restaurants charge for beverages that customers may choose to enjoy at their discretion. We always encourage guests to talk to the Cruise Director on board if they have any concerns, especially regarding food, drinks and service as they will be able to solve the problem. We agree that the cruise and lunch are both very enjoyable experiences on the fantastic Sydney Harbour.

Service: Everything was really good, except that they mixed up the meals. Three people in our party of 4 ordered the beef - two were medium well, and one was medium, but they weren't given to the right people. Two people were already eating their meals, before we realised that there had been a mix up. I have a suggestion - that the chef use those small labelled skewers to identify how the steaks are cooked, that would be a great help and avoid any mix ups. Apart from that hiccup, nothing can beat lunching and cruising on the most beautiful harbour in the world!!

Service: Not what was advertised.
Rushed through meal (food was ok though).
'Harbour cruise'? Wandered on the shoreline within sight of Opera House and Harbour Bridge then told we were going back to dock to pick up more passengers only to do the same 'route' again. Boat at wharf for a-g-e-s so we got off, as did most of the people including some very disgruntled americans.
Wine about 4 times shop price and then we were told we couldn't take the half finished bottle off the boat. We'd bought it before being told the cruise wasn't a cruise.
Product: Food was ok but the service was rushed. We found out why when they went back to the wharf 1/2 way through to pick up more passengers.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer, 

We appreciate your honest and straightforward comments regarding your experience on the Long Lunch Cruise. Our long lunch cruise does offers a full experience around Sydney Harbour and offers time to enjoy lunch as well as sightseeing time to view from the open air top deck. Our route does take into other options that for earlier and later drop offs.  We are sorry that we were unable to meet your expectations. We do check our wine prices regularly to ensure that we are on par with land side venues. Under the responsible service of alcohol laws, guest are not permitted to remove alcohol that has not been consumed on board. 

Once again, thank you for your review.

This is the fourth time we have done this cruise and once again it was excellent. The food was fantastic and our waitress very good. We usually take visitors from overseas on the cruise to show them how lovely the harbour is. What we really like is being able to spend 3 hours cruising the harbour as it gives our visitors plenty of time to see the harbour properly. There is no pressure to rush through the meal, and a bonus is being able to go up on deck to take photos. We think the cruise is excellent value.

Service: The food was of a good quality and well presented. The service was friendly and efficient. It was a relaxed atmosphere and the long cruise time made it so much more enjoyable
Product: The extra time is very good. The meal can feed a little rushed if you just do the short cruise. Taking up the second circuit could make the lunch more relaxed.

Service: Service is good, it was busy because of Christmas so staff weren't as attentive as in the past but as soon as we sought someone's attention they came over.
Product: I think it is value for money as you get a long cruise with delicious food, plus commentary upstairs in the open deck if you desire.

Just a wonderful experience when we hosted a small family party visiting from overseas and celebrating my adult niece's birthday during the cruise of Sydney Harbour.

Great value, first class catering from a varied 'something for everyone' menu, classy presentation on the upper deck, and highly efficient yet relaxed service at the table.

The day was made perfect by the genuinely warm and friendly welcome from all the staff; they engaged with our party with real interest and a demonstrated desire to make the day just perfect by delivering service that would be the envy of a five star restaurant.

Strongly recommended.

Service: very average . nowhere as good as last time which was only 3 weeks ago .

food is served far too quick - therefore meals were truly pre-done and cold when served

the service was below standard - we went for coffee and they took the table cloths off on our return and the table was wet - this is not acceptable in any form of dining

meals were served on a tray and left on the side for more than 5 minutes and a Chinese child sitting with an adult on the upper level was leaning over smelling the food whilst it sat on the table - i could not believe the waitress paid more attention to servicing the drinks rather than served the food


the service or lack of it was disgusting -

this is my second time on this lunch cruise within the last month and I will never go again and or take guests and or even recommend

the two waitresses appeared confused and did not know table numbers to served the meals


the boat ride and view was and is fabulous

you need to put pipe music on for your customers to enjoy and you need to improve the bar service - it was slow and obviously under staffed and or not trained accordingly

consider a light announcement service of the focal points of the harbour for our international guests regardless they do not speak English have a small brochure outlining the historical points
Product: see above review

terrible never again
