A leisurely evening cruise. The three-course dinner was good. There were great view of Sydney and especially the Opera House from the water. Nice evening under the stars.

It was great to see the lights of Sydney from the water, as it gave us a whole new perspective of the waterfront city. While this was an enjoyable evening, the service was very slow. It seemed as if they were very understaffed, as there...More

The staff on board were absolutely fantastic. Friendly, attentive and efficient. Unfortunately the staff in the ticket office were not quite as helpful. We will travel with CCC again because of the wonderful hospitality, but not because of the booking operators.

We went on the Capt.Cook Harbor Highlights cruise. It was a fine cruise, including all the iconic views, a non-kitschy commentary, at a good price. If you are looking for a good way to see Sydney from another perspective, this tour is fine.More

One of my best cruises so far, and I would rate it higher than the one in took on the Seine in Paris. Awesome sights of the harbor bridge, Opera House, and the numerous sailing boats merrily floating about.
