Hi Jan, Have not booked a cruise with Fantasea, only Captain Cook. My review is solely about my experience with Captain Cook. Perhaps contact both companies and see whether they have what you are looking for. Kind... More
Hi. We are staying at the Harbour Marriott on Pitt Street. Could you give us a rough idea how much time we will need to get from the hotel to the wharf please for the 12.30 lunch cruise. We are really pushed for time and don't want to risk not getting there. Thanks.

I think allow about 10 minutes but I would get there about 12.15 to get in the line. If you have the buffet lunch you will have an allocated seat.
We are thinking of taking the dinner cruise. Is there commentary about the sights we will be seeing, or do they only have the commentary on the daytime sightseeing trips?
