There is one important thing that you MUST KNOW before going on this cruise (and from what I've seen, the competing P&O cruise): 99% of those traveling on your cruise ship will be RSL aficionados or elderly people. I am in my 30s and travelled...More

My husband and I spent the NYE in the Sydney Adventure Cruises on Sydney Harbour. We think that was a great view from the boat. The cruise offered good options in drinks and not expensive, but not to many options of food, so BYO. The...More

On our first trip the weather was not too good with weather conditions such that a large number of people succumbed to sea sickness. Because of the weather the whales did not want to know either. We didn't see any. However the group I was...More

We did not see any whales and they offered a free ride on Sat or Sun same week which didn't suit us. I think you should be careful about dates and Jun July is the best time!More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
