746 Sydney (Australia) Cruise Reviews

We live in Sydney so did not take an excursion. Sydney Harbour is always so beautiful and it was wonderful to spend the first afternoon onboard Ovations soaking up the magnificent view. Definitely the best harbour in the world.!

We pre-booked for a Hop-on / Hop-off bus tour, which also included a harbor cruise on Captain Cook Cruises. Red line tours the city, which takes you down to harbor next to Opera House. Also took Blue line which took us over to Bondi Beach where we had lunch; reminded me somewhat of southern France ports. Read Less

Can’t fault the location of the cruise ship terminal - it’s right at Circular Quay. Easy walk from public transport or dropped at the door by taxis. Gorgeous views to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Sydney is the cleanest and safest big city we have traveled too. Wish we had planned on more days there but the bush fires would have limited some excursions out of the city.

Docked at White Bay. No public transportation, just cabs, so took a cab to Circular Quay. Used ferries and walking in the city. Enjoyed my travels. For departure, if it's too crowded on the pool deck and above, just go down to deck 5 and outside to view the bridge, Opera House, etc. after departing. Read Less

Sydney a very busy bustling city. managed to see all the sights as we arrived a few days earlier. Used the Hop on Hop Off, the tram service and walked to most places in the city as our hotel was in the city.

We landed early in the morning and were in the arrival hall in under an hour. We collected a pocket WiFi that was reserved through Klook and purchased Opal cards from the WH Smith store for the public transportation. We looked for a Wespac Bank ATM (Bank of America’s partner), but were unable to locate one. That was an exception. Wespac branches and/or ATMs were all over Sydney and New Zealand for the duration of our trip. Per the information found on Cruise Critic, we located the Bus 400 stand easily and rode it to the Mascot Station. After dropping off luggage at the hotel, we went to Chinatown for lunch. The rest of the day was spent exploring Darling Harbour and along George Street. The Queen Victoria Building was very nice. Our timing was not too good as we missed the “I am Free Walking Tour” that had a meeting point at Town Hall. The next day, we took the train all the way to Circular Quay to visit the Opera House. The area was extremely crowded. Afterwards, we walked across the Harbour Bridge. The view from the bridge was breathtaking. While on the bridge, we saw people participating in the Harbour Bridge Climb. Luna Park is on the other side but there was nothing for us there. We took the ferry back from Milson Point. On embarkation day, we took the train back to Circular Quay. After dropping off the pocket WiFi at the Australian Post on Pitt Street using the pre-paid envelope, I went across the street to exchange the remaining Australian dollars to New Zealand dollars at the ANZ bank. After reading quite a few negative reviews about the money exchangers, I rather pay the $8 fee to a reputable bank. In my case, the fee worked out to be about 4%. The Overseas Passenger Terminal was a short and easy walk away. We dropped our bags off at around 11:15 a.m. and were on board before noon as the entire process was smooth and efficient. Read Less
