What a beautiful way to spend Christmas Day when you are away from home! Food was great, views were incredible!! So much fun to meet so many people from around the world! If you find yourself in Sydney for Christmas, do this!
Third Christmas day we have spent on Sydney Harbour Vagabond Cruises did not let us down. The harbour was great, the food was plentiful with great variety of seafood and Christmas fare followed by a rich Christmas pudding. Santa made a visit with gifts. A great 3 hours well worth the time.
