The personalized service commences from the moment you arrive with priority boarding and a welcome cocktail reception. Dinner is served on the Sky Deck. The degustation menu consists of six superb courses with accompanying wines by Penfolds gold selection of bin and vintage wines to accompany each course, and a full open bar. Sophisticated lounge entertainment and million dollar views complete the ultimate dining experience on Sydney Harbour.

Sydney Harbour, the cradle of Australian history, has been renowned for its spectacular beauty since the early days, when Captain James Cook, in 1770, first discovered the safe anchorage and named it Port Jackson. Enjoy the charm of the many unspoiled foreshores, the sparkling waters, the well known landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Fort Denison, and other sites that reflect the Australian past.

Why not upgrade with the option to secure a guaranteed window seat and take advantage of Sydney's spectacular sights.

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.

Last night of our brilliant holiday and what a way finish. Picked up from Darling Harbour King Street Wharf Transported under the Harbour Bridge and past The Opera House. The views were spectacular. The food was excellent 6 courses that were each accompanied by different wines. The staff were attentive and explained each course and the wine that accompanied it. Would recommend.

This tour was just absolutely amazing. We enjoyed a six course meal with great wine and live music. The music was a enchanting enhancement as we were served each course and watched the beautiful lights of Sydney from the ship. I can't recommend this tour enough!

Fabulous tour! Decided to pay the extra for the Sky Deck Gold dinner cruise with a guaranteed window seat as we were celebrating a special occasion. We were seated on the exclusive Sky Deck on the evening cruise, with our own chefs, wait staff and entertainment. There was nearly too much food on the 7 course menu! All servings were generous and the food was superbly cooked to order, then presented. The staff and service were excellent Hi Eilika, sorry if i misspelled your name, worthy of any fine dining restaurant. The music was great and we slow danced for a while, before heading up to the top deck for a romantic walk while we sailed around Sydney harbour. Well worth the money for the cruise, and we would definitely recommend paying the extra for the Sky Deck Gold for the exceptional menu, drinks and service.

Well that was annoying from the Viator site - wrote the review and submitted using the Link from the email, only to be told I wasn't logged in!! Anyway - not going to write the whole thing again. Food and wines selected was very good - as were the breathtaking views of the Harbour at night. Recommended

I very rarely give feedback - but this time i'm compelled. I booked the Captain Cook Sky deck Gold dinner cruise (with window) for our wedding anniversary. We could not have been happier!! The service was amazing!!! The food was great!! the wines excellent!! Please do NOT change a thing - it was perfect for us. From the canapes and champers at the start to the 6 course selection, to the cleanliness of the vessel to the great attention from staff. We had a great time and were continually offered drinks etc(which we really appreciated). We will do it again for sure-can't wait.

Absolutely lovely cruise and spectacular food. Booked the Gold upgrade, highly recommended for preferred boarding and champagne and snacks whilst everyone boards. Be careful though, the unlimited drinks is not the "full bar" they advertise. It means unlimited consumption of select beers and wines. Great wine selection so it was no problem, just don't like being a bit misled. Great night views of the Opera House, Tower Bridge, and other landmarks.
