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.

Fantastic Australia Day dinner cruise. Great Harbour tour/views, good food, attentive staff, and good views of fire works displays.

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

We were on this cruise for a rather special family anniversary. We found the staff to be excellent, and the cruise offered spectacular views of the Sydney city and harbour. We were even greeted with a gift on arrival. There were plenty of choices of food, and the staff were constantly replenishing the buffet so that it remained fresh throughout... More

This was disappointing as far as the luncheon went. We booked this cruise 8 months ago and were given the Worst talble! We asked for another one and were given a slightly better location. By the time we were called to the buffet, most everything was gone and we were still picking up people at various stops. I would save... More

Always wanted to watch the start of the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Tried booking 2 places on a luxury cruiser advertised through Amex at over $700 per person but was booked out. After quite a bit of our own research found Magistic two offering a lunch time cruise for the race. Wasn't sure what to expect at $220 per person... More
