My 20yr old daughter has been obsessed with all things Australia, hence our trip Down Under and Sydney for NYE. We booked months ago for the Dinner Cruise on Vagabond Spirit - and while we were a bit taken aback by the boarding location, the cruise did not disappoint. The atmosphere was great, the food ample, delicious, given the logistics... More

Would highly recommend this experience. We enjoyed the evening with dear friends from the UK and had a wonderful time. Plenty of room, cruising the harbour and being front and centre for a world event.

My partner and I had an amazing time on the lunch jazz cruise in early January. The food was delicious and plentiful, the music wasnt overbearing over conversation and the staff were fantastic! Sam in the bar always had a smile, was happy to have a chat and help with anything. Simone was a great director, good for a laugh... More

It was ok. Being in the Harbour on NYE has always been a bucket list thing to do. We live in Melbourne and flew up just to do this. Glad we did it but not sure I would use this company if I did it again. For $550 ph it was ok. The food was average at best but at... More

I booked our 2016 work Christmas Party with Vagabond Cruises and all those that attended were very impressed and had an awesome night. Everything from the vessel, food, drinks, music was as arranged. Having organised many functions over the years I found dealing with Vagabond so easy and trouble free from start to finish. I highly recommend Vagabond Cruises and... More

A friend and I flew down from Brisbane to watch the start to the race, and Vagabond had been recommended to us. It was a fabulous day. The boat was boarded efficiently (due to assigned seating for lunch), the drink prices were reasonable (by Sydney standards) and the buffet lunch was very nice. The staff were very pleasant and appeared... More
