When I went away for my Darwin trip we had a full itinerary of activities. One thing I was really looking forward to was the sunset cruise – with champagne of course!
We experienced many sunsets and this was one of those beautiful sunsets. Darwin can definitely give you plenty of beautiful sunsets!
What is it?
The sunset cruise starts at 5.30pm and sails for 3 ours around the bay of Darwin. The tickets are $110 each and give you unlimited sparkling wine, and 7 courses of tapas. There’s plenty of photo opportunite s throughout the cruise and it is a relaxing way to enjoy a beautiful Darwin sunset.
The courses involved pita bread with dips, corn chips with salsa and guacamole, chicken skewers, vegetable skewers, prawns… the food came out quickly. It was very casual presentation – what you would probably do at home or at a BBQ. But considering we are on the water it probably makes sense to keep it casual.
There was also good catering for dietary requirements. Between the four of us, we had two gluten free requests and one vegetarian request. Even though they were tapas style courses, they had various options for all of us and we all enjoyed the food.
I am unsure what brand of champagne it is, or if it was actually sparkling wine instead. Either way, I thought it tasted nice and has a slight sweet taste to it,but not overpowering. You can bring your own drinks with you if you don’t like sparkling wine or champagne, but I feel that defeats the purpose of a champagne sunset cruise. Plus if you are paying $110 for a ticket, you may as well drink the included alcohol. That’s just my opinion of it…
The staff were really nice and friendly. They quickly came to fill up our drinks, so it can be hard to keep track of how much you are drinking.
The boat is a luxurious style yatch that also offers overnight cruise options. There are beds on the inside of the boat, although they would probably only fit a short person.
It is really relaxing being waited upon on a boat. I felt that a bit like a Kardashian or like I was living the lifestyle of the rich and famous… which is why so many photos were taken! There’s definitely plenty of photo opportunities throughout the three hours too.
Overall I really liked this Cruise. It felt like a relaxed fancy treat and was a great way to experience another beautiful Darwin sunset. I would recommend for others to do this on a trip to Darwin (provided it fits within your budget)
