Better than expected. Great meal, beautifully presented. More wine than we could drink. While we were initially concerned about people with different levels (3 course meals vs 6) it wasn’t a problem.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner cruise in Sydney Harbor. The boat was modern, the service was attentive and the food was excellent. A great way to end a day of touring Sydney. We recommend this tour.
We love wine did not get to travel to the southern part of Australia to tour any vineyards so a Penfolds wine dinner ...on beautiful Sydney Harbor was the perfect choice. We upgraded to Gold window seating which I highly recommend. We embarked at Kings St wharf boat pulled in at 7:30 as instructed and somehow missed the 6:30 champagne appetizer intro that people who boarded earlier did, but were taken to our table and quickly given champagne. The service was excellent and the courses all delish, well sized and nicely paired with Penfolds wines. ...we were full at the end! We've done may similar dinners and this one was quite good. Live music entertained us as we cruised in the harbor enjoying the birds and city lights. Highly recommend!
I was very concerned that this would be a touristy version of a nice dinner experience. And a lot was at stake as it was my best friend's 50th Birthday. I am pleased to say that this was a very special night. It started with a welcoming to the top deck with trays of champagne and delicious passed appetizers. We had the chance to take pictures, have a toast and enjoy Sydney Harbor. The service was top notch. Definitely get a guaranteed window seat! The food was delicious the wine pairings excellent. We were not rushed and chose to stay on an extra half hour and disembark in Darling Harbor instead of Circular Quay. It was well worth the cost and made a great memory for all of us.
An absolute must to do. Be treated as royalty , fine dining, and lovely venue and views of the harbour sights.
The best dinner cruise we ever been on lot the 5 star meal.
Excellent dinner and music. The view was magnificent. Happy we got on early. Well worth it.
Our hostess sorry cannot remember her name but she was from Japanese background made our day so memorial
Ease of booking Online, friendly hostess, good food with perfect weather
The food was phenomenal, our waitress was on point, helpful and fast, and the cruise itself was also fun. I'd highly recommend this for a romantic evening or a good time with friends.
Staff were very good, Just what we expected from description that we booked
Super Dinner Cruise. Good food lovely atmosphere plenty of wine and drinks. the on board staff were superb.
I booked this cruise to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and it didn't disappoint. Great food plenty to drink amazing scenery and worth the window upgrade - highly recommend.
Last night of our brilliant holiday and what a way finish. Picked up from Darling Harbour King Street Wharf Transported under the Harbour Bridge and past The Opera House. The views were spectacular. The food was excellent 6 courses that were each accompanied by different wines. The staff were attentive and explained each course and the wine that accompanied it. Would recommend.
This tour was just absolutely amazing.
We enjoyed a six course meal with great wine and live music. The music was a enchanting enhancement as we were served each course and watched the beautiful lights of Sydney from the ship. I can't recommend this tour enough!
Fabulous tour! Decided to pay the extra for the Sky Deck Gold dinner cruise with a guaranteed window seat as we were celebrating a special occasion. We were seated on the exclusive Sky Deck on the evening cruise, with our own chefs, wait staff and entertainment. There was nearly too much food on the 7 course menu! All servings were generous and the food was superbly cooked to order, then presented. The staff and service were excellent Hi Eilika, sorry if i misspelled your name, worthy of any fine dining restaurant. The music was great and we slow danced for a while, before heading up to the top deck for a romantic walk while we sailed around Sydney harbour. Well worth the money for the cruise, and we would definitely recommend paying the extra for the Sky Deck Gold for the exceptional menu, drinks and service.
Well that was annoying from the Viator site - wrote the review and submitted using the Link from the email, only to be told I wasn't logged in!!
Anyway - not going to write the whole thing again.
Food and wines selected was very good - as were the breathtaking views of the Harbour at night.
I very rarely give feedback - but this time i'm compelled. I booked the Captain Cook Sky deck Gold dinner cruise (with window) for our wedding anniversary. We could not have been happier!! The service was amazing!!! The food was great!! the wines excellent!! Please do NOT change a thing - it was perfect for us. From the canapes and champers at the start to the 6 course selection, to the cleanliness of the vessel to the great attention from staff. We had a great time and were continually offered drinks etc(which we really appreciated). We will do it again for sure-can't wait.
A very special evening!
ok i have to say that this was the best thing i have ever done i took my mum on this cruise for her birthday she loved it, the singer was incredible she even sang happy birthday to my mum for that i am so grateful i would recommend this cruise to anyone :)
Absolutely lovely cruise and spectacular food. Booked the Gold upgrade, highly recommended for preferred boarding and champagne and snacks whilst everyone boards. Be careful though, the unlimited drinks is not the "full bar" they advertise. It means unlimited consumption of select beers and wines. Great wine selection so it was no problem, just don't like being a bit misled. Great night views of the Opera House, Tower Bridge, and other landmarks.
Excellent Service and Staff were Great
