Full description

Don't miss the chance to live a unique and unforgettable experience, framed by the timeless beauty and serenity of the enchanting city of Venice. The Venetian Galleon will wait for you in front of the Museo Navale in Venice and, once on board, the crew will lead you to your reserved table to offer you a delicious glass of Prosecco DOC. The candlelight, the elegant tables, a fine and well-finished service, and the charm of a boat of other times will be the perfect setting of your wonderful evening out, for an unforgettable dinner immersed in the magic of the Venetian Lagoon. At dusk, the Galleon will slowly leave shore and head into the northern lagoon, with its mysterious canals, while the minor islands such as Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto reveal themselves to you one after another. During dinner, you will taste a variety of delightful specialties prepared by the Chef on board while you sail towards the Venetian Arsenal and then past the islands of Vignole, Mazzorbo and Murano, known worldwide for its glasswork masterpieces. You will then circumnavigate Burano, famous for its picturesque, colorful houses and the Leaning Bell Tower. Then sail back to the San Marco basin and past the island of San Giorgio, where you can admire the lights reflecting on the water. Afterward, the Galleon will head on to Venice and the cruise will offer you a spectacular view of the San Marco basin. Once arrived at the landing-place in front of the Museo Navale, you will disembark and, with a last glimpse of Venice, the Galleon will sail slowly away. At the time of booking you are asked to choose the position of the table:

The Central Deck has panoramic windows and during the tour you will enjoy a fantastic view of the Venetian Lagoon.

The Prow/Stern areas offer a more intimate atmosphere. On the prow, there are only two small portholes at the top and there is no view on the outside. The stern is connected to the kitchen/bar and has small windows for a partial view of the outside.

In the Prow/Stern area the tables are for 4 people and, depending on the availability, couples might be seated at one shared table (however, the tables are big enough to guarantee each couple privacy).

Although my wife and I really enjoyed the cruise element experience we were very disappointed with the menu. This is normally fish,however we chose the alternative meat menu as some of the fish dishes didn't sound like we would enjoy them. When we were served the meat dishes they all consisted of raw or undercooked dishes which we personally could not eat. If we had known the food was going to.be like this we would have opted for the vegetarian option as the cruise itself was lovely and staff were really friendly. Overall the activity was lovely but choose carefully with the menu!

Awesome ship, excellent friendly staff, food looked great although bit too much for our taste, we not really “foodies” so didn’t like a lot of it. Everyone else did though so wasn’t a reflection of the menu, just be prepared for a rather exquisite 9 course experience. We couldn’t book on deck as was full so settled for cheaper option in the front of the boat, wouldn’t recommend it if you get motion sickness like me and can’t stomach travelling backwards. Although you can go outside and sit up top anytime so that helped. All in all would recommend, definitely a one off experience, fish or meat menu options when booking. Book early though as gets full quick !!!!

My fiancé took me here tonight for our anniversary dinner, it was incredible. From the moment I saw the ship, to the table, to the service and not to mention the food, music and final desert! Our first time in Venice, I would highly recommend coming to do this at night time. It’s undoubtably the most romantic experience. Thank you for such a great evening!
