Our experience on board Dreamtime completely exceeded our expectations! Smart Cruiser Sydney have provided an incredibly thorough service from beginning to end and created an amazing day for my guests with beautiful décor, amazing food and personalised service from staff on board. We will be keeping Smart Cruiser Sydney’s details on file and be booking them for another “money can’t buy” experience on Sydney Harbour!”
