Chose the cruise because of the menu! View was perfect due to pre booked window seat - but everyone had good views. Food was great - usually that is the disappointment on harbour cruises - but this one was very good!!

Well worth a go when in Sydney

Food was really lovely. Great spot and beautiful views! Drinks are a little pricey, they encourage you to order through an app which charged you a service fee which is a bit annoying.

The boat was great, the service was very poor. We expected better service. Our server never came around to ask if wanted more water. I guess we expected more since we have had other awesome experiences with you
Great trip
Debra_T, Feb 2024
Lovely trip. Food was great and views amazing. It was easy to find and a very streamlined process boarding. As soon as we were on we were seated and could order drinks on an app. Food order was soon taken and staff very attentive and efficient.
Ken_M, Feb 2024
Didn’t get a window seat/table or an option to have one especially because I was trying to impress on a first date. Our food was late and we were told the chef dropped our food, which sounded lame.
QR code reader scam
Earl_E, Feb 2024
The food and service was good on the boat. We were told to use the QR code reader to order drinks and before we ordered drinks, it charged us over $50. We’re disputing that. Not a great experience getting charged over $50 and getting nothing for that.
Valentine’s Day Sunset Cruise
LuElen_S, Feb 2024
Valentine’s cruise was interesting to see the city from the water side perspective, the food was good, and the musicians/singer were very enjoyable. Would have rated 5 stars had Mother Nature cooperated and given us a sunset versus an overcast drizzly evening.
Great Sunset Dinner Tour by Viator

Meal was great and the views were amazing
Linda_B, Feb 2024
The views of the harbor were amazing and the meal was great. We both had different options on the meals and loved it all. The cruising was very smooth.
enjoyed the cruise, crew...
Pintara_P, Feb 2024
enjoyed the cruise, crew were very accommodating we almost missed the ferry. however I believe the it was false advertising of the correct cost for tickets. When the booking was made through Viator website total cost for 4 tickets was $345.46 however upon making payment online it was actually $525.36 an additional cost of $180 - such a disappointment which I believe was in USD not AUS dollars. False advertising at its best - would I recommend it to family and friends most probably NO.
Stunning Sydney dinner cruise

Sydney harbour dinner cruise
john_k, Feb 2024
The dinner cruise was great way to be on the harbour whilst enjoying a great meal The views were spectacular
Over priced and well under delivered!
John_C, Feb 2024
Getting on and getting off! Easy on and easy off. Dinner was a 2 on a 10 scale! Barramundi was overcooked and the skin was tough! Service was pathetic as we sat with empty glasses for an hour! Beer was $10.50 -$11.00 and the water was warm. Do yourself a favor and take a ferry ride and eat somewhere else. 1 hour and 15 minutes on the harbor cruise with a stop to pick up on dining passengers. So a 2 hour cruise as Gilligan use to say was a 75 minute cruise with no commentary on what you were seeing!
A Beautiful Evening in Sydney Harbor
Steven_S, Feb 2024
The Sydney 2000 is a beautiful dinner cruise ship. The views and ambiance were great! It was a perfect way to finish up our stay in beautiful Sydney, Australia!
A wonderful two hour early dinner cruise
John_H, Feb 2024
We had a delightful two hour early dinner cruise, the staff are friendly and helpful and food choice and quality was excellent. We have already recommended this package to another couple.
Not a Sunset Cruise as advertised!
Gregg_P, Feb 2024
This was NOT A Sunset Cruise as promised. In fact, it was back to the dock several hours before sunset. The reply from the crew was it is daylight savings time and they aren’t going to adjust to it!!!!
music and prompt service...
denise_b, Jan 2024
