About
At the time of booking you will have to choose the position of your table: - central deck, with a magnificent view of the lagoon during navigation; - bow / stern area (automatically assigned): the bow is the most reserved area of the boat where there are only two small portholes at the top and therefore it is not possible to see the outside, while aft, near the open kitchen, there are small windows. In the bow / stern area the tables have 4 seats, so any couples could share the table based on availability (the tables are still large enough to allow each couple to have their own privacy). It is possible to choose the menu: based on fish, meat or vegetarian and it is necessary to communicate any allergies / intolerances at least 48 hours before the date of the dinner.

Ages 0-100, max of 40 per group

      Couldn't fault it
      We did the dinner tour around the lagoon. Couldn't fault it. Food was great (we had seafood menu), lots of different courses, also served plenty of drinks and some wonderful sights during nighttime in Venice. You can also head up onto the deck to get a better view. It's not the cheapest, but we felt after experiencing that it was a treat well worth spending out for.

      Romantic dinner cruise
      This was such a special evening. Food was very good quality, but take note there is a lot of it! Was about 8 courses and they were big portions. The ship took us around the lagoon up to Burano and back. Was particularly nice outside the Doge's palace near the end of the trip, as the lights were turned down and romantic music played. The ship turned around so that guests sat on both sides of the ship had a lovely view. Make a note of sunset times as we set off after sunset, so the views weren't as good as they would have been as was too dark. Still saw some lovely sights where buildings were lit up. I'd also recommend taking a shawl, as even on a warm night it was a little chilly when out on the lagoon.

      Wonderful Ship Horrible Food
      After reading rave reviews about the great food I bought a ticket and enjoyed the peaceful sunset cruise . But they must have changed the menu because it’s all gross , slimy flavorless , not even warm dishes that I couldn’t eat …and I’m the type of letdown who will eat just about anything! First course was a nasty little raw shrimp — that made my stomach churn . And my friend was served raw beef ( carpaccio) . Some slimy mushy stuff that looked like farina breakfast cereal . We took 2 bites of the fish and beef dishes .. zero flavor , and not hot . So we thought .. ok at least there’s desert — we’ll the tirimasu was equally gross. The food standard was below airline food. So enjoy the boat ride — especially on top ! But EAT someplace else !!! No buffet style Served . It kinda seemed like it was leftovers from sone other event —or frozen stuff they microwaved . Nothing has a flavor —and i it did —it wasn’t a good flavor .

      Would highly recommend
      What an amazing evening, There is nothing about this that I could fault. The food was great and the sail round Venice and the islands was really enjoyable even though it was dark.

      Memorable for all the best reasons - incredible!
      Lovely Venetian food, wine & Prosecco on the comfort of the galeone with excellent service and the most beautiful views of Venice & the islands of the lagoon. We take the trip every time we’re in Veneto and have enjoyed every time we have done it. I’d recommend it to everyone who visits Venice or the surrounding areas.

      If you are looking for a dining treat with a beautiful setting, this is it
      A little pricey, but an unforgettable experience. Food and drink are superb. Best arrive hungry as the 5 courses feels more like 10 courses, there is alot of food. Superbly cooked and presented. Beautiful music, candlelight and cruising around Venice under a starlit sky with the moon illuminating the lagoons and canals. A bottle of champagne and wine is included in your package too. Great views from the bow and stern decks , which are still accessible with the cover in colder months. Recommend paying the extra money to sit on the main deck . The bow and stern are more private, but lack the same views you get from the main deck. Boat leaves at 20h00 and returns by 22h15 ish . If you are looking for a dining treat with a beautiful setting, this is it

      Excellent way to have dinner and see the city from the sea. Food was good, many different courses with wine. I can definitely recommend.

      Amazing food and experience
      We booked this on a whim and got the last 2 seats. We were warned our seats were in the stern and might have a restricted view. The opposite was true the view was amazing. It was a little chilly and when the sun went in difficult to see the food! The food was amazing. All the courses were delicious. The wine was also lovely and the waiter service was efficient and polite (a novelty for eating in Venice). I would heartily recommend this for all couples and families. Probably an ideal place to propose and lots of lovely pictures to take. I would do it again!

      Beautiful evening
      My husband booked for us to go to Venice for my 40th birthday, it was also our wedding anniversary so I wanted to book something to celebrate that. I was browsing and found this dinner, we love a dinner cruise and have done them in a few different places, so I booked quite last minute. Unfortunately it rained the whole day in Venice and although we enjoyed the places we visited we were cold, damp and too far from the hotel to go and change, we didn’t hold out much hope our evening would get any better. How wrong we were, it was a perfect evening, the rain stopped so we could go up top and enjoy the views and the poop deck so cosy and comfortable, perfect to relax and enjoy dinner. We changed to the meat menu as I’m not a big fish lover, I would suggest emailing in advance just in case! We were greeted by a bottle of prosecco and a couple of little starters, we have a lovely meal a bottle of wine and the service was faultless, attentive but not intrusive. It is a little expensive but for me definitely worth it, we had the most beautiful evening, a very relaxing and much needed boost to a long wet day in Venice!

      Lovely experience
      A lovely experience from start to finish. The food was excellent, as was the service. The galleon sails around some of the islands near to Venice and finishes with a pause beside the Basilica Santa Maria Della Salute and St Mark's Square. Lovely ambience on board the ship, very relaxing.

      Amazing Trip..A must whilst in Venice.
      This Trip was so well organised with extremely professional and attentive staff and service. It was a beautiful evening with plenty of photo opportunities from the deck. The food was delicious and plenty of it ( 7 courses ). An absolute must for your Venice trip. Unforgettable.

      Mediocre experience
      We went on the carnival party cruise, which was 90 euro per person. Food was not great at all and seating area was non existent. So, thay did not live up to my expectations for 90 euro pp. Party after dinner was fun and music was good. I did have a good time, but think it's a bit too expensive for what you get.

      Venetian Galleon Dinner
      21 February 2019 , myself and a bespoke group of 13 joined the Jolly Roger for the Galleon Meal. I can only say it was excellent and excellent value for money . The aperitivo drinks on arrival were flowing, then followed by a 5 course meal, of an extremely high standard , attention to detail all the way . All our special requests were met and in order . The staff were helpful, it was an awesome experience. Our glasses were topped up without asking , the galleon was very authentic . Sadly the fog prevented the boat from sailing and leaving the harbour , however we all still had a wonderful time and the ripples of tides gave us the feeling we were sailing and at sea.. The only advice I would suggest to improve the experience is - if you arrival early and its cold outside , you have to wait on the keyside before embarking the Galleon , Thats it ! Dress up warm if you are waiting to board - inside we were all very warm and again an excellent evening. Thank you .

    Excellent experience, a masked party sailing around the islands, the buffet dinner was adequate, wine and proseco flowed freely and the music was good too. The staff were cheerful and helpful. A lovely mixture of people from everywhere including many Italian guests. If I would make a recommendation is only that there should be someone there before embarking to let people know we are at the right place! There are two galleons a bit far apart, we were all waiting and a bit confused whether we were at the right place. Otherwise a far better evening than my expectations. We sailed smoothly around the islands on a fairly clear night.

    When we boarded the sun was setting which was lovely. The staff and whole experience was brilliant!
    Food was interesting, the artichoke rissoto was the worse course other than that everything was delicious.
    We had a bottle of processo to start and chardonnay with our mains.
    I've done quite a few dinner cruises and this was by far the best I've done. The view and cruising the islands was beautiful.

    We had the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous evening and five course dinner on this beautiful galleon. The cruise goes around Venice allowing sites most people don’t get to see. Having a near full moon and clear skies added to the enjoyment. The food was so delicious. The normal menu includes plenty of fish and seafood, and because I am not a fan of seafood I was able to get the alternate menu which included beef and turkey which was absolutely delicious. My husband did opt for the normal menu and he loved every bite. This is an experience of Venice I highly recommend.

    My husband and I had a wonderful time! The five course dinner was tasty and plentiful, the delicious wine was flowing, the music was perfect, and and lights of Venice reflecting on the water were spectacular!

    The only suggestions for improvement I have are these:

    1. It would have been nice to have all of the crew members to be introduced at the start of the cruise. It just seemed a little awkward at the beginning.

    2. It would also be nice to have a little bit of commentary explaining the sights we were passing by.

    But that being said, the dinner cruise was really nicely done, and was certainly a highlight of our vacation! Grazie!

    How wonderful this cruise. We wouldn't have missed it for anything. Friendly staff, well set up and food and drinks in abundance. If you go to Venice for a few days, you should definitely do this. In our opinion, worth 10 stars
