Tips For Planning A Romantic Dinner Cruise

Compared to a date night at a crowded restaurant, a dinner cruise on the Yarra River is considerably more romantic and peaceful. It is a marvellous experience that you and your loved one can cherish for quite some time. And on following these tips that we have laid out below, you can experience a night that neither of you will soon forget.


      1. Time

As it has always been said, timing is everything when dealing with such matters. So, if you wish, you can spend the entire day with your loved one. You can sail over the Yarra River as you take in the sights of the majestic Melbourne. At the same time, you can better connect with your beloved one and indulge in each other’s company. 

Eventually, as the sun sets, you can enjoy the evening with some fine food and drinks. All while you sail on the Yarra river amidst the twinkling lights of the city at night.

Or, you can set sail as the sun begins to set, which will give you the entire evening to enjoy each other’s company. You can spend the whole night on the river eating delicious food and fine wines while dancing to music till the break of dawn!


      2. Music

If you are planning a date, then the right music is essential to set the mood. Bring along some tunes that both of you enjoy listening to. Or you can play some romantic melodies to express your love.

For a more classy touch, you can opt for musicians on board, who will play soft ambient music while you spend quality time with each other. You can also make things a little more interesting by opting for karaoke. Both of you can sing along to some of your favourite tunes together as you cruise through the Yarra River.


       3. Ambience

If you really want to make your date feel special, create a charming ambience. In that regard, music, flowers and proper lighting can help a lot in setting the atmosphere. It is said that flowers are the greatest symbol of love there is. No wonder people have been giving flowers to their loved ones since time immemorial!

You can do the same to significantly enhance the ambience – either opt for the simple and sweet flower bouquet or go the extra step and make floral arrangements on the boat. 

Roses and other scented varieties, such as tulips, lilies, daisies and so on are popular options. The fragrance from these flowers will also help set the ambience to a great degree.


       4. Entertainment

Another great tip to make your date night special is to set up means of entertainment. Of course, once you set sail on the Yarra River, the sights and sounds of Melbourne can be a source of entertainment in itself. 

But, if you want even more options, you can make arrangements to watch movies with your partner in the boat’s cabin or under the open skies. Or, follow our previous tip and set up for a karaoke night; sing along to popular love songs and keep yourselves entertained.

Other than that, you can go for the tried and tested method of a romantic dance to bring yourselves closer to each other. 

       5. Food

And now, we finally arrive at the most essential tip for your romantic dinner – the food. There is possibly nothing more romantic than sitting at a table with the love of your life while you indulge your taste buds with fine food, drinks and dessert.

In that regard, you can opt for a full course dinner consisting of a wide range of delicacies based on personal preferences. And to end it on a sweet note, you can choose among a wide selection of desserts. 

You can also opt for a wide assortment of fine wines and champagne on the boat to increase the sophisticated romance quotient.


       7. Capture The Moments

You can indulge in photography by hiring a professional photographer. Or, click selfies to capture the little yet special moments with your beloved to make the experience even more memorable.
