As we cater for large number of guests in a relatively small meal time, it is not practical for us to accommodate to such requests within the given time frame. All of our cruises have at least on vegetarian menu option for seated & served menus. Banquet/buffet menus also offer vegetarian choice. We cannot guarantee that certain products or ingredients (nuts, gluten, diary, etc.) will not be in our food, and we explicitly accept no liability in this regard. For serious food allergies you must make own decisions on selecting meals. Our staff’s comments are only to assist you in making an informed decision. In exceptional circumstances, with our prior written consent you (or one of your guests) may bring your own meal.

Pleasantly impressed by the whole experience & would recommend this cruise to family/friends. Suggestions of a finger bowl served with prawns & drink service was a little slow/ difficult to attract the attention of a waiter from 11pm onwards.

Fiona and Harry

Great experience 2 times will be back again we hope.

Carlos

Was a bucket list goal to enjoy New Years Eve fireworks on Sydney Harbour since watching Sydney fireworks on tv overseas as 2000 year ended and 2001 arrived. We migrated to Australia August 2001 from Canada. Dream come true. Thank you for an awesome experience.

Michael

A very special cruise, right through from Josh, who was extremely helpful and assisted with the booking process and answered all my questions with great detail, to disembarkation. Special dietary requirements were well-catered for. A truly splendid evening very much enjoyed by my 12 guests. Thank you, Agnes Hain

Rapunzel
