Buffet Menus



Starship Sydney Buffet Menu – $83 per person

Buffet Service
Buffets offer a greater variety of foods from meats to seafood and vegetarian, for your guests to enjoy.
Whilst guests do have to leave their seats to attend the buffet we monitor this flow by having them do so table by table.
Buffets are also a quick and efficient way to cater to large groups and dietary requirements
When choosing your buffet dishes consider balancing your choices.
If you need any assistance our team is very experienced in offering advice on your options.

Table Buffet
We also offer a table buffet where the dishes are served to your individual tables.
This does attract an additional service charge of $6.00 per person but worth considering as it allows the same choice of foods without guests having to attend a traditional buffet.

BAD WEATHER
This is an all weather vessel. The charter would only be cancelled in the event of very extreme weather conditions, such as a cyclone.

SEA SICKNESS
It is fairly uncommon for passengers to suffer from seasickness on a harbour cruise. Should the water become choppy due to windy conditions, the skipper will cruise the more sheltered areas of the harbour. However, if a passenger does become unwell for any reason, we can arrange for them to disembark at the nearest wharf or by water taxi.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
Our chef can accommodate most dietary requirements. However in extreme cases we recommend passengers arrange their own catering.

CRUISING WITH CHILDREN
Children of any age are permitted on-board with parental supervision.

CRUISING WHILST PREGNANT
There are no restrictions with regards to a Sydney harbour cruise whilst pregnant. Just ensure you notify the chef of any dietary requirements.
