Leave the Harbour behind and set sail in a premium cruise ship, guaranteed to net you some gorgeous panoramic views of the Sydney Vivid light festival. Watch the city come to life and glow with bold and brash colors from your unique viewpoint on the decks of the vessel.
This year, in particular, is the 10th anniversary of Sydney Vivid, so you can expect a truly dazzling spectacle on a hitherto unprecedented scale. See how each Sydney landmark puts on a different show with delightful themes and jawdropping lights in myriad hues. You can catch nearly 60 different interactive light installations across the Harbour from 6.00 PM to 11.00 PM every day, for the duration of the festival. What’s more, your cruise also features an expansive food and wine selection, with a handpicked three-course contemporary Australian dinner which comes with the Captain’s seal of approval, including choice of mains and desserts, plus house still, sparkling wines, beer and soft drinks.
You can either opt to catch the sunset and watch the lights turn on at 6 PM with the sunset cruise, or take a longer, more relaxed cruise at 7:30 PM and have a leisurely dinner while taking in the beautiful sights. Either way, this is the opportunity of a lifetime to witness Sydney on a grand scale, one you should take care not to miss!
