I didn’t like that the food was already out and you were basically made to go up and get your food straight away. I was there to sight see I wasn’t interested in food the moment we stepped on board. I thought we would get on, someone would give us a run down of what to expect on the trip and then the food would come out and as we liked we could go up and get food. We got our food and went back to our table to finally start sight seeing and listening to commentary when someone came up and asked us if we would like drinks, which was nice but I had already got our drinks. Then just as we started eating again, a photographer came up and kept taking our photo not sure how we are meant to sight see or listen to commentary when we keep getting interrupted. About half way through the cruise I wanted another drink, of course no one would come near us then nor was anyone ever at the bar to go and get one myself, I never got another drink. Right at the end of the cruise I discovered that there was an outside deck you go out on, this would have been nice to be informed about at the start.

Service: The whole cruise time was too short and we felt rushed from the moment we got in especially as it was a surprise 50th b'day!
These sunset dinners should be 2hrs at least.
We didnt get to feel the whole enjoyment and experience.
The quality and quantity of food was average but not what you paid for in total for the lot per person
Product: Pretty standard nothing special
Disappointed unfortunately

This cruise is always a highlight when we have American friends visit us in Sydney. The narration is a good combination of sights and history. The glass of sparkling to start is a very nice touch, but the package of food boxes in mid-afternoon is overkill.

Service: That's what we meant, you guys are just 5 star service, excellent all round, from the ease of booking online, to getting there by train, to getting tickets to boarding to table to lunch (AMAZING!) to the cruising and the sight seeing, on top of good price offer on Wednesday! I can't wait for my next trip, given half a chance in Sydney again.
Product: We don't see any reasons you and your cruise should be rated any less.

Service: Horrible vessel. Ugly, and only few seats outside. I remember booking with matilda cruises years back. Such a nice boat. And tables and chairs on the deck and it departed from darling Harbour which is much nicer location. The 'cruise' now was worse than the Manly Ferry which is an iconic. It spoiled my birthday to be honest and did not impress my guests either

This was an excellent cruise. We went into parts of the harbour we had never seen. Your commentator (Elizabeth?) was really knowledgeable. She spoke clearly and with some humour. Other staff were also very efficient and courteous. With the added bonus of a bar, and tea/coffee I consider this to be a good value cruise.

The staff are amazing and a big salute to the skippers in both vessels as we arrived at the wrong wharf and only had 15min to get to the vessel , we were transported from one wharf to the other without any fuss , we did the science cruise and enjoyed 2 hours on the most beautiful harbour in the world
What a way to show off our beautiful city to visitors

Great cruise and commentary. Unfortunately if you are seated on the outside deck right at the rear of the boat it is really hard to hear.
The cruise combined premium and standard tour. There was no information provided with regards to receiving your complimentary afternoon tea. So, without asking would not have known the procedure.

I cancelled my travel to NSW/Sydney because of cathastrophic bush fire. I already cancelled a week before the trip but they said no refund. They should have an option for refund in case of an act of nature because it is not my fault that I cancelled for the safety of my family.

Thank you

Service: The volume of the audio was too low to hear out in the harbour with the noise of the winds and waves. On the other hand, the catering was very poor. We booked a “premium” experience which included sweet and savoury treats and tea and coffee. We had to ask for them at least 3 times until someone brought them to our table unpleasantly. The sweet and savoury snacks were served in 4 carton boxes for each of us and mine was all sweet - did not have anything savoury in it whereas my mum and dad had 3 sweet and 1 savoury snack each. The staff were rude and it definitely WAS NOT WORTH THE MONEY overall. Sydney ferries are very cheap and you can have a great time seeing the same everything on them. Plus staff are very friendly.

As a tourist to Sydney, the harbour cruise is the ideal start of your visit.

Service: The food was lovely, the drink service could have been better though, when we initially ordered our drinks, the bubbly, they asked did we just want it by the glass,
we said ok but then after the first one I couldn't get another, I should have asked for the bottle to be left at the table! Also after ordering our drinks they were left at the bar and not brought to the table! Other than that everything else was good.

Firstly the instructions regarding the service of the food were not clear and not spoken loud enough for all to hear. There were some ‘nibbles’ type food but no mention of their provision. The hot food was not labelled to indicate the name of the dish and its contents or wether it was vegetarian or non-vegetarian. Admittedly we did not specify any special needs but that would not negate the need for food labelling.
The commentary and other services were satisfactory.
The assistance given to me in the organisation of our Bus travel and Cruise has been very helpful and greatly appreciated.

Service: Great trip around Sydney harbour. Bruce, Bob, Brandon and Judy did a superb job as captain, crew and compere.
Our only concern - the captains morning tea selection - nearly everything had nuts in it. Please include some lamingtons back in the pack
Product: Cruise was awesome. Judy did a brilliant commentary. As I said our only concern was that 2 out of 4 of us have nut intolerance. The box didn't name the product we were eating and then it was a challenge to read the side of the pack. Ultimately we paid for premium and couldn't eat and we don't drink alcohol so a few soft drinks, coffee and a fight between us for the cheese and bickies. Still a wonderful day on the harbour

Impressive boat and courteous staff dampened only by the cruise' narrator (Aug 31 cruise) - she was neither engaging nor entertaining, boring us almost to sleep. Weather was dreary as it had been raining but that was beyond control. Would have been memorable for our foreign guests (friends visiting Sydney for the first time)- had we at least had a lively narrator.

Service: The staff was okay. After we complained they explained that there wasn't much fish at the buffet this time, which was really disappointing.
Product: My family from Germany came to visit me in Sydney. I wanted to take them on a cruise around the Harbour with Seafood. We were all very excited and couldn't wait to get on. To say that we were disappointed in the food and the cruise in general would be an understatement.. Nothing was as it was stated on the website.
I wasn't aware that chicken and roast were considered "seafood". There was one type of fish and some oysters, the rest was rice, chicken, roast and a few salads and some dry bread rolls. We took a photo of one of our plates to compare to the photos online. Online we were promised a variety of fish and prawns and not just dry fish and oysters. After telling the staff, they had some excuse as to why there was only two types of seafood. The food was absolutely miserable and a waste of money. We should have gotten fish and chips from Circular Quay, it would have not only been tastier and more authentic but also not a complete waste of money.

I was suppose to take a lady in a large electric wheelchair. Luckily she was sick and wasn’t able to attend I had rung and was told the John Cadman was wheelchair accessible.
I had explained it was a very large electric wheelchair. I had plan ed to rebook for the lady in the wheelchair but on checking while there the ramp is very steep and at the top there is a thick metal bar which the wheelchair would be unable to navigate.
Must be very careful when you say wheelchair accessible. Need to clarify. It would of been awful if I had brought the lady and been unable to access the John cadman.

If customers prefer a live, personalised and interactive commentary, we provide live commentary on our Harbour Story cruises.

The picturesqe landscape seen from the top deck as the sun was setting is something I will never forget. The service was great and the food presentation & flavors were great. The opportunity to view the Sydney Opera house from the water was worth the cost alone. The exceptional service, food, and drinks were just a bonus. I am pleased to have booked this excursion. I would recommend it to others without hesitation. Thank you Captain Cook Cruises.

Service: The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was reasonably good. I was disappointed with the vivid lights and don’t think it should be advertised as same as there was only the Opera House and Museum of Contemporary Art that had light displays. Once it gets dark on the water you have no idea where you are. Some discreet commentary whilst Cruising would have be good to orientate to Sydney Harbour at night.
Product: Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was reasonably good.
I don’t think it should be advertised as a Vivid lights tour as the only lights shows that you could see were the Opera House and Museum of Contemporary Art. I also think some commentary of location during the Cruise would be beneficial to orientate to Sydney Harbour

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience. We are disappointed to read the Vivid displays weren’t to your standards. The Vivid Festival is operated by the government. The cruise allows passengers to see some of the highlights of the festival, including but not limited to the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Contemporary Art Museum, Botanical Gardens, Taronga Zoo and Luna Park. Our Vivid Dinner doesn’t provide commentary, as this would interfere with the great ambience provided.

The food was great and the wait staff very professional. The only complaint I have is that we didn’t get to see much of the Vivid Light show. The show started at 6pm but the ship had to return to the wharf by 6:30pm. So our Vivid experience was very short lived.

The cruise was to rushed, needed to wait until 6pm for the vivid lights, which if you weren't quick enough, you didn't see it.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience. The Vivid Lights begin at 6pm, which is controlled by the NSW government and is unfortunately outside of our control. The earlier cruises are designed so that customers are able to witness the vivid lights turning on. Our cruise times are listed on our website for complete transparency for our customers and we follow this as closely as possible.

Had a wonderful time on Sydney Harbour with my wife. Enjoyed the premium check in and bubbles on arrival. Even bought several more rounds when the bar opened. Tour was excellent and really enjoyed the commentary. What we weren’t expecting however was the afternoon tea to arrive in ‘boxes’. Literally, mini slices of cake in boxes wrapped in plastic. Seemed very cheap and tacky.

Would have been nice to have a table with tea/coffee and cake on it to help ourselves rather than mini boxes of cake...

This is our 3rd sunset cruise as it’s a present for my niece’s birthday. Generally very happy with it & with the service. Staff are friendly & professional.
However my other niece is vegetarian & we thought the one (and only) vegetarian meal was quite unsatisfactory. It was basically some vegetables & nothing else. This in no way lives up to what is to be found in most restaurants now as a vegetarian meal. Recommend you address this gap in your menu.

The food was fresh and varied. We paid extra for window seating and the window was very dirty making it difficult to see through. We were hosting friends from overseas and were embarrassed with how the staff discussed the drinks bill at the table. We didn’t request NRMA discount voucher for the online lunch reservation because it was difficult to know how to do this and the staff on board did not know how to apply on the drinks bill - a $5 discount on a $60 bottle of wine was not 20% discount. We were not as fast as others lining up for food so there was little left which was also disappointing. The seafood was fresh and tasty though.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for your review of your Captain Cook Cruises experience. We can assure you that our windows are cleaned thoroughly and regularly, however the salt water can sometimes make the windows appear otherwise. The food throughout our Buffet Lunch Cruise is replenished constantly. If there is something missing, please don’t hesitate to alert our cruise director to ensure this is replenished immediately.

Service: The staff were lovely. We had been 12 months prior and enjoyed our time so much we booked again. However this time I felt the variety of food was not as much and there was no commentary as we cruised around the harbour. I was disappointed with that as we took our daughter this time and there were foreign visitors also enjoying the lunch, but had no idea what they were looking at.
Product: It would have been nice to know what we were eating. There was a vegetable curry, that was a bit too spicey for my daughter. She put it on her plate not knowing exactly what it was. It would also have been nice to know what cheese was on the board. Tags please.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for the review of your experience of your Cruise. Our Buffet Lunch Cruise includes GPS commentary, which provides a general insight into the history and fun facts of the harbour. All dishes should be labelled and we sincerely apologise if this was not the case on this occasion. Please be assured your feedback has been forwarded to our hospitality manager for review.

My wife and I took the Premiym HarbourCruise at 2:15 on Mar 29th. Cruise itself was good. However, the female tour guide was very hard to hear especially when she lowered her voice throughout her presentation. Struggling to hear her took a lot of work (and often not successsful) and greatly diminished our enjoyment of the cruise. One of your staff members raised the volume a bit at my request but it only helped slightly.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Service: The cruise and the ship are good. The narrator was considerably less informative than on previous cruises. His humor attempts got in the way of the information. And his comments were usually about what we had just passed, rather than what we, looking forward, were looking at.
Product: Food and beverage were minimal, besides the bubbly. The "flat white" was a short balck with a little milk.

Service: The ride was smooth, despite windy conditions and storms in the area. However, I was very disappointed, and somewhat disturbed, that NO SAFETY announcements were made during the cruise! Nothing about what to do in case of emergency, where the life vests and life rafts are located, etc. This is a HUGE miss in my opinion.
Product: We had excellent vegetarian entrees, and a very friendly server who chatted with us during the cruise. Food was served hot, and the dessert was excellent.

Product: The Harbour Story experience was wonderful. We boarded easily, the staff were super friendly and efficient. We cruised around the magnificent harbour, enjoying coffee and Anzac biscuits, whilst listening to first class commentary. The guide pointed out important points and sites. She told us stories of pre-colonial, colonial and post colonial times. It was utterly fascinating, and excellent value for $45.00. The cruise lasted for two full hours and I could not recommend it more highly

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.

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.

This was a great sunset dinner cruise!
My mother was visiting from the US, and it was such a wonderful experience to see Sydney at night this way. I highly recommend this dinner cruise as it was definitely good value for the price.

I thoroughly enjoyed the lunch experience on board. Everything was as I was expecting it to be! Beautifully presented with helpful waiters/waitresses. The commentary was most interesting giving me information I had not known about. It was a beautiful day and the sailing was very smooth.

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: It was a lovely day and my group enjoyed the cruise on the bay very much but all eight of us were dismayed about the quality of the food on offer.
We were expecting freshly baked scones, sandwiches or some other quality snack instead we were offer awful and unhealthy food inside a carton box!!.
We were ashamed on behalf of the tourists on the boat and starved instead of eating the rubbish.
Product: Not very easy to find what we were looking for

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear customer,

Thank you for the review of your experience of your Cruise. Our Harbour Story Premium cruise differs from our standard Harbour Story Cruise by including afternoon tea including a mixed sweet & savoury selection, Vittoria coffee or a selection of fine teas and a glass of sparkling wine. We apologise if this wasn’t to your standards on this occasion.

Thank you once again for your feedback.

Very nice and interesting trip with a knowledgeable and friendly guide.
I would recommend the tour (I chose the premium variation) to anyone.
I think it’s a must do, to get a better understanding about history and the impressive dimensions of the harbor.

Service: From beginning to end, it was a most enjoyable experience for two Senior Citizens, both religious Sisters. Enthusiasm was high as we awaited the opening of the gate to board the vessel. The staff were friendly and welcoming, anticipating our needs. The commentary was clearly spoken, and gave great insights of our harbour with past and present history of places and of people.
The afternoon tea was delightfully presented in the shape of a gift which contained delicious treats from savoury to sweet. The staff here were also so helpful in carrying our teas and coffees to our table to prevent one or the other of us falling. It really was a most enjoyable experience. Thank you for the organizing of this event.
Product: The voyage was good value for money.

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.
Product: Brilliant food and plenty of choice

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: Great commentary. Thanks Elizabeth. A great start to a Monday. Sparkling wine ,coffee and nibbles. All served with a smile. Vessel on time and a wonderful tour of Sydney's iconic harbour. Only thing that could have been improved was the windows should have been cleaned, but that could have been a result of the weather.
Product: Good value. Commentary, wine, food and the best harbour in the world, what more could you want
