  • Q : Do we cater for any special dietary requirements?
    A : Magistic Cruises offers a buffet menu on our lunch and dinner cruises. The buffet menu is designed to cater for the majority of guest expectations. Please refer to our menus online before you make your booking. The menu items are labelled and includes a choice for vegetarian, halal and gluten-free. As all the dishes are prepared in our on board galley, we cannot give 100% guarantee that certain ingredients will not be in our dishes e.g. nuts etc.. For serious food allergies, we request our customers to make their own decision on selecting dishes from the buffet. Our staff comments are only to assist you in choosing your dishes, however, the final decision must rest with you. The company explicitly accepts no liability. Please submit all special requests 72 hours’ prior to the cruise. Additional dietary menu surcharge will apply. In exceptional circumstances, if you or one of your guests wish to bring their own meal, we are happy to accommodate this request. Sydney Showboats offers a 3 course seated and served menu. On our charter cruises, the menu will vary depending on the clients requirements. The relevant above details will apply for both Sydney Showboat and charter cruises.
