Service: Very satisfied with the assistance from the staff in the Booking Office at King Street Wharf. We had a problem and they helped with a solution. We loved the dinner and drinks cruise - had a lovely table setting by the window, great service from the very friendly staff. The meal was very good and the wine and beer included made it great value. All in all very satisfied and proud to be a local if this is the experience that our overseas visitors get.

Product: Lovely all round. Good food, great service. Nice atmosphere. Not too crowded, not too noisy.

Service: Efficient and orderly embarkation and disembarkation.

The vessel is clean and the dining area is functional and well designed.

Loved the table position - large window giving a uninterrupted view of the harbour.

Table Attendant was exceptional - friendly, efficient and very professional manner.

Cruise was well planned to encompass highlights of Sydney Harbour and the Vivid highlights.

Food was a little cool and dessert flavour was not well balanced.

Otherwise a fabulous night cruising around the best harbour in the world.

Product: Shown to table on embarkation, drinks served immediately, food was delivered promptly. Main meal was noticably cool when delivered. Dessert was a little bitter and needed more sweetness to balance the orange flavour.

Our waitress/attendant was exceptional, delivering an efficient and friendly service throughout the evening.

Service: The service and crew were excellent but I felt the food choice that was offered on this cruise was not as good as previous options. A kids choice of meal eg nuggets and chops etc could be offered as well. I saw other families who were asking for options as well.

Product: Great price and easy booking. The early cruise time is great for kids.

Service: Allow an alternative booking when the original booking had to be cancelled for unexpected reasons. We lost $180.00 due to unforeseen circumstances. Another organisation allowed us to change to another date with a small booking fee penalty. We will not be booking anymore with Captain Cook Cruises unless they change their harsh/unfair policies.

Product: We were unable to change our booking date and were not allowed to arrange alternative date.

The cruise, staff and crew were quite good but Vivid was a DUD

Rain, lights, refraction obviously aren't perfect companions

Service: I had dinner + drink cruise with family using MV Sydney 2000. The 3 course menu and wine is good. Since we cruise during Vivid Sydney the view is great. During Vivid time it is a must to get cruises in your schedule.. Lot's of lights and fireworks. The main attraction is at Opera House.. I haven't got experience in cruising during non-Vivid, but I thing the view will be very different.

Before cruising I already check each cruises website and also see myself each ship and I still belive MV 2000 Sydney is one of the best ship.. in it's top deck MV Sydney 2000 have big open deck so you can take photo and since the ship is very big, there's no significant shake in your photo..

Very recommended cruises..

Product: Excellence tour during Vivid Sydney festifal..

A must during your visit to Sydney
