Why a Gold Coast Cruise is the ultimate Valentine’s Day date

Special Cruises

Imagine this: You’re in awe of your sweetheart, unsure what is sparkling more, their eyes or the city lights around you. You’re in a world of your own as you cruise down the Gold Coast waterways. The city skyline glimmers off the river as you and your love share a night of unforgettable romance.

Valentine’s Day can be intimidating for even the most romantic of Romeo’s. Have no fear, we have the best date idea for you and your Juliet. Ditch supermarket flowers and whisk your sweetheart away on an amorous evening of decadent dining. Sea World Cruises Valentine’s Day Cruise is the perfect way to say “I love you” to your special someone.

Follow our steps to the most perfect Valentine’s Day date night ever.

1. Your secret is safe with us

Secure your spot on the Valentine’s Day cruise, but don’t tell your boo. All they need to know is what time they have to be ready to leave. Departure from a convenient location in Surfers Paradise. Check-in 6:30 PM for a 7:00 PM departure. Dress code: smart casual. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment as this cruise always sells out.

2. It’s showtime

You and your special someone are all dolled up and you have never seen each other look so beautiful. Now it’s time to head to Surfers Paradise to begin your romantic evening. If possible (and safe), blindfold your lover on the way to the destination to keep the allure of mystery.

3. The big reveal

Arriving at the Surfers Paradise jetty, your sweetheart is in for the surprise of their life. Take the blindfold off and voila! A beautiful cruise vessel is waiting for you under glistening city lights. After you have been rightfully adored for all your efforts, remind them that it only gets better from here.

4. Your carriage (cruise boat) awaits!

Our friendly crew will guide you and your lover to your seats onboard our spacious and comfortable vessel. Treat yourselves at our onboard fully licensed bar to crisp beverages or be tempted by our tantalising cocktails. The sound of love will float through the air from our onboard live-entertainment, think swoony voices and melodies, setting the scene for a loved-up night only seen in the movies.

5. Tempt your tastebuds

Indulge in a delectable two-course buffet meal fit for your king or queen. Impress your special someone with an irresistible menu which includes fresh ocean king prawns, roasted leg of lamb with a rosemary crust, tasty grilled calamari, grilled barramundi plus so much more. When you’re full from dinner and full of love, there’s always room to squeeze in dessert. Be seduced by our selection of decadent desserts including rich chocolate cake with three berry coulis or our Valentine’s Day-themed Chef’s Daily Special.

6. Love is in the air

Feel the butterflies as you cosy up under sparkling skies sipping sparkling wine. Our 360-degree open-air rooftop lounge is set up with bar amenities so you don’t have to miss a moment of adoration. Pass by local iconic landmarks and the stunning Gold Coast City skyline.

7. You and me, forevermore

Time flies when you’re in love. You haven’t noticed the night drawing to a close until you hear the Captain announce that you have returned to Surfers Paradise. Lead your lover hand by their hand off the boat. It’s up to you to choose a kiss goodnight or see where the rest of your Valentine’s Day date night takes you.

Don’t miss the perfect opportunity to wow your Valentine and book now. Special cruises sell out fast, call now to secure your spot.
