We went on the cruise right around sunset and the views were fantastic! The ship was a nice size with plenty of seating. There were snacks and beverages available for sale. The view of the opera house was fantastic.

The boat is fine. Sydney Bay is always beautiful. But the food... Their "seafood buffet" is mediocre and bland. The mussels had no flavour and seemed to have been boiled in water and that's it. The prawns were pale and most probably imported (cheaper). I...More
