Service: The dinner was quite average especially for the price (I could have had three Terauyas dinners for that!), and drinks - cheap and bad. Perhaps this works for 60+ year old foreign tourists but from a Sydneysider’s point of view this was just below average. Also, there was absolutely nothing to do between 9pm and 12pm.
Product: Totally not worth the time (and especially the money) wasted. I should’ve spent this time with friends at home.

If not for the awesome Sydney Harbour fireworks themselves, my rating would have been 1 star. All cruises at this night are the same, as long as they are not massively overcrowded and provide a good vantage point.

Bring your own entertainment with you.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer, 

Thank you for the review of your NYE Sky Deck Dinner Cruise with us on Sydney Harbour. We were disappointed to read that you felt we were not able to meet your expectations regarding your food and drinks. We provide a fine dining experience for those on board our Sydney 2000 NYE cruises and believe them to be equal to other dining establishments on this night. 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 immediately. Between the fireworks displays (9pm an 12 midnight) Sydney 2000 and all our dining vessels are part of the Harbour Lights parade and our guests are encouraged to move to the outdoor viewing areas to take part in this great event. We also provide live entertainment and many passengers on Sky Deck were up dancing and enjoying the festivities.

Once again thank you for your feedback and are sorry that you felt you could not enjoy one of the best events on the best harbour.

Kind Regards, 
Head of Customer Service 
Captain Cook Cruises

Service: Thought the service, food and wine were excellent. Glasses were topped up without having to ask and all the staff encountered were very pleasant and helpful.
Product: A great night eating, drinking and dancing, topped off with an amazing view of the fireworks. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
