Having dinner outside of the home used to be a rare event for families and couples. It was once a treat for special occasions such as birthdays, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day…etc. Today, because of our busy lifestyles, eating dinner out has now become a common event with people eating out 2 or 3 times a week. With so many consumers choosing to dine out instead of staying at home, there has been an increase in different types of eating establishments. One method of eating out that is becoming popular is having dinner on a cruise.
Dining on a dinner cruise boat is much different than dining in a traditional restaurant. When you have dinner on a cruise, you have the opportunity to relax, and enjoy traveling on the water while watching the beautiful scenery along the shoreline. Also, you can gaze at the sun set, the moon and stars, making the dinner not only relaxing, but romantic. With restaurants, you basically have the same environment to look at so you end up spending most of the time focused on your food.
After the meal, instead of paying the bill and leaving, like you would do in a restaurant, you can get up and take a leisurely stroll around the deck. It is particularly special on warm breezy evenings with a full moon glistening on the open water. It makes the dinner much more enjoyable and memorable. People who eat out at restaurants 3 times a week tend not to have special memories. It has become more of way of just getting something to eat.
With many restaurants, you often have to wait in line to get a table. On a dinner cruise, there will be staff members waiting to greet you and help you board the boat. Dinners on a cruise are prepared by the best chefs using the highest quality foods and ingredients. Courteous and attentive staff will cater to all of your needs. You will also have access to the best wines and other beverages. There may also be complete buffet. The costs are included when you book the dinner cruise so you don’t have to worry about getting an unexpected expensive bill. Dinner cruises are affordable and you know the upfront costs prior to boarding the boat. All of the meals are freshly prepared aboard the boat.
There are also additional services that will be provided on a dinner cruise that you will not usually find in a restaurant. Not only do you get a spectacular view, but you can also have elegant table linens and china, live music or a DJ, first class service and food, air-conditioned and spacious dining, seated or buffet dining, and cocktail service. You will also be served delicious Hors d’oeuvres and mouth watering desserts.
In restaurants, you often have to put up with noisy customers, clanking of kitchen dishes, crowded tables, slow service, waiting for a table, and dirty bathrooms. Dinner cruises maintain the highest standard of care for all aspects of the dining experience making your dinner cruise beautiful, delicious, relaxing, and clean.
Passenger safety is of the highest priority for staff of a dinner cruise. All boats are inspected annually to meet safety requirements. As well, they are equipped with fire fighting devices, life saving gear, first aid equipment, life jackets, and communication devices. All members of the crew are trained in emergency protocols and CPR.
If you are bored with the regular routine of dining at restaurants, a dinner cruise may be the solution. Spend a romantic time with your partner, or give your children an exciting evening out. It is one experience that you won’t forget.
