We thought we were going on a site seeing trip on the ship on their web site. No we went on a dinner ship that had horrible seating, horrible view points and a horrible speaker system. It was a sham too as it is a pretty harbor.

We booked on Sunday for a Monday night tour and got a reduced price of $75 for a dinner cruise. Their regular boat was not running so we were lucky enough to go on the glass clear view boat which was fantastic. A 360 degree view in the dining area, and an upper deck outdoor viewing area. We boarded on... More

Great package deals which include high quality buffet and drinks for lunch. Perfect way to view Sydney harbour and sights such as Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

We went on the Magistic lunch cruise and half day Sydney Sights tour. The cruise was very nice. Food was very good and lots of it. The narration of the sights was enjoyable and informative. After the cruise we met our AAT Kings coach for the afternoon tour. The bus was parked exactly where we were told and waiting for... More

Buffet lunch on a large tri level boat. You know the deal get in first and get it fresh and best. Large queues to start with with loaded plates coming back from the buffet and if you wait you get the rest. To be fair, there was still plenty of food even after waiting for the bunched queues to subside.... More

visiting Sydney to celebrate 20th wedding anniversary and booked on the sat night dinner cruise. Went very well, plenty of nice food on the buffet. Drinks are extra. Nice night on the harbour- scenery was fantastic. 2nd time on this boat as we had done a NYE cruise. Good standard and would book again with them for either.

Boarded Saturday 25th Feb at 2pm. No greeting, no hello, no welcome. The lady marking people off was more concerned with finding our names & ignored the finer touches as to a hello. We paid for a 2 hour cruise with a drink. Bored the ship to be told we can't sit in certain areas as they are cleaning? Seriously,... More

We recently went on Magistic's new Clearwater lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour and it was spectacular. This is actually a fine dining restaurant that floats rather than a cruise that serves food, and it's the only one of these that we've seen that isn't buffet style. Well worth a visit.

I was really pleased with this. It is fairly expensive - but turned out to be well worth it. We were on Sydney Harbour from 10.45 until 2pm. Staff are really professional and attentive. If your booking is for an even number you can be assured a similar table. If your party is an odd number be prepared to share... More
