The cruise was not bad, but didn't like how it was organized. They took us to our table that already had another family seated. Moved us to a different location. When the server came, she announced to us that each table would be served with half the table getting chicken and the other half fish. There was no choice if everyone wanted chicken or if everyone wanted fish. Dessert worked the same way, no choice. Also when booking, didn't see different drop off/pick up locations, which they did do. Would have been helpful to know so we didn't have to take a ferry to the booking location and book at a different pickup spot.

We set sail on a lovely evening in January 2023 and enjoyed some magnificent views of the harbour and its buildings. The perspective from the water was so different from seeing the same places from the land and it made it a memorable experience. The three course meal was very tasty and the portions were adequate. Staff on board were very pleasant and helpful. All in all, an experience which is highly recommended.

Vegan dinner was outstanding, and singer was very good. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Boarded at King Street Wharf but was able to disembark in Circular Quay near our hotel which was nice.

Live music was lovely, food was tasty. Wine was chilled. Views were excellent. Great atmosphere and very relaxing.

This trip was okay, but really, all the boat did was circle the same portion of the harbor four or five times while we were served an average meal. We believe a better alternative would be to have a better meal at a land-based restaurant and get your cruise experience with a ferry trip. The ferry gives you much better angles for pictures and generally viewing the highlights of the harbor. This boat really travelled too early in the evening to see the harbor at night with the lights on. All of that said, the people on the boat really did a good job, treated us well, and the meal was pretty good.
