Booked the cruise to watch the start of the Sydney to Hobart! Very glad I chose Vagabond - from the moment we boarded everything was precision and all the staff were amazing. Food was fresh and plentiful and the well stocked bar was well patronised. The Captain manoeuvred our ship into an ideal position and watching the yachts race past was definitely the highlight!
Highly recommended! My friends and I do this cruise every year. Food is delicious and Cruise Director was fantastic, informative, entertaining and attended to guests in a professional manner.
My husband, 2 sons and I decided to take the lunch cruise on Boxing Day 2019 - it was excellent! The food was great, the service good, the music was perfect and the weather really topped it off!
