How was your experience?
This is my first review on Goldstar, so I'll try and make it useful: The cruise was great! I read over the suggestions from past members, so I was well prepared for the night. I packed a bag with various fruit & cheeses + bottle of wine + waters. If I didnt do this, I dont think my girlfriend and myself would have enjoyed it as much. NO ONE else was prepared with a "picnic" which I could tell takes away from the overall experience. People were forced to buy drinks from the bar, which could get expensive. The cruise wasn't fully booked, so it was extremely comfortable. I'm not sure how good the experience would have been if there were the full 90 passengers as it stated in the admission ticket. We sat in our own section, allowing us to enjoy the picnic I prepared and the staff uncorked our wine and let us keep it on our table. As well, they provided us with a complimentary glass of champagne. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. I recommend taking your seats first inside, having your food and wine and when everyone from outside is tired of the scenic tour and wants to relax, that is the best time to head outside for the view and take in the atmosphere. Overall, this was a great experience, definitely worth the 50% off, not so sure I'd agree at full price, but great date activity and would recommend it to anyone who comes prepared with the tips. This is not touristy at all and is a great way to spend a romantic night with a loved one.
