    Great date night. Choice from menu was diverse and delicious. Singer did a nice job. Sydney at night is breathtaking. They even have a photograph to capture your evening.

  • Jess U – Via TripAdvisor

    The cruise was lovely and went to all of the sights on the harbor and had nice live music with a singer and piano player. The food was good but not as good as I was expecting for having paid over $100pp.

  • Dave H – Via TripAdvisor

    Our group had its own room with 4 tables. Food was a la carte, we both had prawns to start, a steak then dessert; wine was good and generous. Views while eating were good.

  • Melissa – Via TripAdvisor

    Both food and views were great on this tour. Be careful, drinks are not included in the price, which makes this cruise not really a good value, especially considering the cost.
