This is good just to experience the cruise by night in Sydney but not as awesome as what we had during our Budapest river cruise. It you want to see vivid Sydney, all you need is be at The Circular Quay where all the lights are.

Very disappointing. The boat was late arriving, it was advertised as leaving 6pm and it was after that when it arrived. The food was ordinary. Unfortunately the boat spent more time out of the view of the lights as it sailed past Circular Quay. The only plus was that it sailed into Circular Quay on the way back so we had the choice of getting off there instead of back to King Street Wharf. I realise that because there are so many boats on the harbour they cannot hang around too long but I can't see a reason why it could not have sailed into the Quay and back out again at the start of the trip so we could have seen more of the Opera House sails changing.

Firstly we arrived at the pier at the allocated time-5:45 BUT no boat till 6:10! The boarding was extremely disorganised and slow. The food was absolutely terrible!!! The best part was the walk around circular quay. However this again was disorganised with no arm. Ands that apparently should have been handed out.We should have just taken transport to circular quay and done that. The harbour cruise was a waste of money with almost no commentary or explanations.
