This dinner cruise is simply sublime. The staff is attentive without being oppressive, the background music is superb, the candlelit dinner takes place in a cozy place, the tables are not shared as noted in the description they are all in pairs where a bottle of prosecco awaits you and served you as soon as you arrived. The meal is delicious and very hearty (6 dishes + desserts). You can get up to admire the view on the boat deck and even ask the captain if you can sail, which he kindly agreed for my husband. Flawless: staff, meals and an indelible memory.

We had an exceptionally pleasant dinning experience, the crew members were fantastically polite and professional, the food was amazing. The music, ambience and atmosphere were all well balanced. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who’s looking for a romantic night with her/his significant half and spend a night in this city of love

Would give more than 5 stars if I could. Sara was fantastic and helped coordinate a perfect proposal and wonderful night. If you’re considering it - just do it. The entire experience is worth the money.

What a fabulous evening. Food was absolutely gorgeous from start to finish. Staff very friendly and super efficient. For the quality of food and the ambience it was worth every cent! Highly recommended

Very nice experience. The exceptional boat. The meal was very generous and very good. It is an outing to do without hesitation
