Booked this cruise for myself and my parents not knowing what to expect, having not done a cruise before, and it’s fair to say I would absolutely do it again. It was an incredible experience. The service and host were so lovely and welcoming. The food was delicious and the scenery was outstanding. It was a great trip out. We had plenty of time to explore the boat and take pictures and comfortably eat when the food was served. If you are looking for a cruise of Sydney Harbour to do while you are here, I 100% recommend! It was worth every penny!
