We went on this cruise three years ago and it was Magical , we treated our friends this Saturday gone, the boat was half hour late and we was rushed to our table no menu did not know the wine we were drinking as it was a race as we eat the plate of food was taken from us and another course was put in front of us, the boat was packed and noisy and hour and half later we were told to leave as we had arrived at Circular Quay hour half to eat 6 course it was one big race i cant even remember what the food was. we would never go on the Captain Cook again this cost me and my husband $1554.00 for 6 of us we was so ashamed of taking our friends on this cruise for christmas better off going to mac donalds dont waist your money.

Spectacular but only the Gold class passengers. There should be a separate section for other diners
, Apr 2021
When the other parties left and only the Penfolds Gold Class passengers were left on board for the last 1 hour. That was the best.
First class experience

First class experience. From the welcome champagne and Hors d'oeuvre to the multi-course meal everything was superb.

We missed the cruise . We called 3 hours before to confirm the time and pickup location because our tickets had 2 different locations listed . We called they looked us by via the reference number and told us wharf 6 Circular Quay which was wrong . They will not do a refund even tho their people gave us the incorrect information . This is not how you run a business. Especially when we called to confirm since we weren’t familiar with Sydney . Be careful when booking . We will not use this service again. It was also very hard to even get ahold of anyone about the issue.
Date night with my husband

Penfold Wine Pairing Dinner Cruise
, Mar 2020
We did the Pendold Wine Pairing harbor cruise. The cruise of the harbor was nice but the food was mediocre and the wine pairings sparse. I don’t believe it was worth the price.
very romantic and friendly
, Feb 2020
my wife and i went on feburary 15th and had the skydeck penfolds dinner. the food was amazing..the champagene and wine offered was really good. they space your food out perfectly so your not rushed to finish eating and your also not sitting thier waiting and wondering. the service we received was one of the best ever at any restaurant. the lady who was in charge was very friendly and knew very well what food she was serving us has she explained each dish and also explained each serving of wine has well. the piano player did a excellent job of having some music and singing in the background but not so loud has to get in the middle of your special moments between you and your partner. the yacht itself was very clean and easy to navigate. if you really want to make that someone know how special they are look no further. you wont be disspointed.
Great night and superb views
, Feb 2020
Brilliant night from boarding at Circular Quay to departure at Darling Harbour. My wife and I had window seats even although I did not pay the extra cost. We had a glass of champagne and canopies to start then as the boat sailed we started our 5 course meal accompanied by a glass of wine to compliment the food. Our server for the evening was very knowledgeable explaining all about the wines. The food was varied and very tasty. After dinner whilst the boat was sailing you could have drinks from the open bar included within the price. Whilst the boat was sailing you could go out on deck and take pictures with the views of the Opera House and Harbour bridge stunning when lit up in the dark. We left the boat around 10 pm after 3 hours and a great evening.
Food very good
, Feb 2020
Was a lovely evening. Food and drinks perfect. Trip a bit short thought it was to be 3 1/2 hrs was 2 1/2 hrs bit rushed with 5 courses and drinks. Was expecting more of harbor sailing. Sailed stopped turned round and round sailed stopped. That's why we chose it to see more harbor.

Better than expected. Great meal, beautifully presented. More wine than we could drink. While we were initially concerned about people with different levels (3 course meals vs 6) it wasn’t a problem.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner cruise in Sydney Harbor. The boat was modern, the service was attentive and the food was excellent. A great way to end a day of touring Sydney. We recommend this tour.

We love wine did not get to travel to the southern part of Australia to tour any vineyards so a Penfolds wine dinner ...on beautiful Sydney Harbor was the perfect choice. We upgraded to Gold window seating which I highly recommend. We embarked at Kings St wharf boat pulled in at 7:30 as instructed and somehow missed the 6:30 champagne appetizer intro that people who boarded earlier did, but were taken to our table and quickly given champagne. The service was excellent and the courses all delish, well sized and nicely paired with Penfolds wines. ...we were full at the end! We've done may similar dinners and this one was quite good. Live music entertained us as we cruised in the harbor enjoying the birds and city lights. Highly recommend!

I was very concerned that this would be a touristy version of a nice dinner experience. And a lot was at stake as it was my best friend's 50th Birthday. I am pleased to say that this was a very special night. It started with a welcoming to the top deck with trays of champagne and delicious passed appetizers. We had the chance to take pictures, have a toast and enjoy Sydney Harbor. The service was top notch. Definitely get a guaranteed window seat! The food was delicious the wine pairings excellent. We were not rushed and chose to stay on an extra half hour and disembark in Darling Harbor instead of Circular Quay. It was well worth the cost and made a great memory for all of us.

The food was wonderful, although when we got the filet mignon that was cut in half, we did think they were being cheap. The biggest disappointment was that we were stuck inside at the table for 90 of the time. Consequently, we never got to enjoy the sunset or even views of the harbor, except thru the windows next to our table.

WOW the food was super great as was the service. The view of the opera house, harbour bridge and city was amazing! It was an open bar however my husband asked for a beer when we sat done and they said well we are serving a different wine with each course. My husband he a beer man not much of a wine drinker but he drank what was offered. Giving the price you pay for an open bar I think they should have brought him his beer and still served the wine I don't think it should have been one or the other. My only real disappointment was I paid extra for a guaranteed window seat and our group was so small everyone had a window seat. I would think the tour company would let you know that and refund back the difference but I wasn't given that option. It was a great meal and would have been more exciting I think with a full cruise.
