Sunset Cruise with Dinner for One!

I received a welcome and wonderful opportunity from the Waterfront Boat Company to enjoy a champagne sunset cruise for two.  I invited my fabulous friend to enjoy the sunset cruise with me and sadly she was unable to attend.  I remember thinking how funny it was to set off to the Waterfront in which to enjoy a sunset cruise for one!  I’ve never turned down an opportunity to experience something new just because I was without a partner so I set off in any case.  

The Waterfront Boat Company is the proud owner to many vessels and treated us to their larger vessel, The Sea Princess.  All of their boats are well maintained and include various onboard facilities.  All guests were welcomed aboard with welcome drinks and invited to enjoy either the upper or lower decks.  Guests who enjoy the freshness were able to sit outside and for those who feel the chill they could find a safe haven within the cozy lounge area of the boat.  A champagne sunset cruise is a wonderful experience for many occasions.  Most people would think of a cruise for romance only when really it is a wonderful experience gift for milestone birthdays, incentivizing staff, rewarding clients for loyalty, Valentine’s Day and more. 

The best part of the sunset cruise would have to be the location.  Cape Town is the Mother City as we know and the coastline and scenery is spectacular.  Sunset cruises leave the harbour and travel to Clifton and back.  On the way one can enjoy stunning scenery and epic views of Table Mountain.  A sunset cruise is so relaxing and a great way to spend time away from everyone and with someone special or in my case on my own.  In fact I met up with two great people who have since become wonderful friends.  I have been on a few Sunset Cruises before and very often I have been privileged to see dolphins chasing our boat and enjoying in the fun.  I have to say, there is no better feeling than to throw anchor around the Clifton area and sip expensive champagne partnered with sublime canapés.  I can see how clients would find this ideal for anniversary gifts, weddings gifts and perhaps an engagement proposal as well.  I always recommend to clients for engagements to perhaps book a private charter cruise instead.  There are other wonderful boat charter companies based at the Waterfront such as the Tigger 2 Charter.  For engagement proposals one can really push the ‘boat out’ (pardon the pun) as most boat charters at the Waterfront cater for lunch cruises, dinner cruises, sunset cruises, team building and more.  

The sunset cruise with dinner combination, offered by the Waterfront Boat Company is cleverly put together.  Once clients return to dock, they then disembark and are taken to their restaurant chosen at time of booking.  Clients can then relax and enjoy a fusion of delectable treats from a set menu.  

I thoroughly enjoyed the Waterfront Boat Company, Sunset Cruise with Dinner and even though it was just me, I managed to have a whale of a time!
