Christmassy ambience with a delightful character
Experience the most memorable Christmas party cruise in Sydney

For more than three decades, Australian Cruise Group has been synonymous with excellent hospitality and waterfront dining on Sydney Harbour. We have three unique vessels which offer amazing cruise dining experiences on Sydney Harbour. With Christmas around the corner, these cruises are once again in demand. If you have already booked with us for the upcoming Christmas, here are some fun yet important things you should know prior to your cruising extravaganza. 

Experience the Views from a Different Perspective 

Sydney Harbour lunch cruises are a popular ensemble in the city providing amazing sightseeing opportunities. Over the years, they have gained considerable traction as a major tourist attraction in the city in terms of offering views of the world-famous harbour from the waters. During your cruise, you will get stunning close-up views of the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and other prominent landmarks. In fact, they’re the best thing about our cruises—the majestic views that keep changing with every minute. Come Christmas, come aboard one of our exclusive Christmas Day lunch cruises to celebrate a memorable one with your folks. 

Eat, Drink and Make Merry!  

As epicurean as it sounds, our Christmas Day cruises are all about making merry in the true Aussie spirit. Enjoy a sensational dining experience that includes freshly prepared Xmas favourite dishes on your menu curated by experienced chefs aboard. Sydney Showboats and Clearview Cruises offer a special Xmas Day banquet menu which includes a seafood platter, meat platter, a main course of Roast Turkey and a dessert platter. Coming to Magistic Cruises, we offer a special buffet with Xmas favourites. The menu consists mainly of seafood and a selection of hot and cold dishes followed by a choice of four amazing desserts. Since the food is freshly prepared on board, we guarantee you the best quality dishes that taste the best! For the vegetarians on board, we promise not to disappoint! Get on board Clearview or Sydney Showboats to indulge in an equally delicious vegetarian menu with 4-courses. The beverages for the day consist of beers, wines and sparkling, mineral water and soft drinks and juices, all served from our fully licensed bar. For a heads up, this isn’t an unlimited beverage package and we advise all our guests to enjoy the drinks in moderation in order to maintain the decorum of the cruise. 

Entertainment & Fun Unlimited!

Get ready to be enthralled by the festive vibes on board our Christmas Day cruises. Celebrate the joy of togetherness with your friends, family or your work buddies as you share your wonderful experiences and laughter over the delicious plates of food. We allow our guests to bring gifts and presents on board. So, if you wish to host a Christmas party that includes gift exchanges, feel free to bring your bounty to zest up the Christmassy vibes on board. If you choose a Sydney Showboat lunch cruise on Christmas Day, we have some more exciting news for you! We host a fantastic performance by a live jazz band backed by the festive ambience.
