On this cruise, you’ll be tasting delicious antipasto, pasta dishes and the iconic tiramisu dessert. To match you’ll taste superb Italian wines such as Chianti’s, Fiano and amaretto. For those who want a taste of the rustic flavours of Italy, you’ll enjoy a mouth-watering taste of Italian cold cut meats served with creamy pecorino and provolone cheese, and olives all the way from Sicily.

  • Christmastide

    The next Gold Lunch cruises brings along a Christmas in July inspired menu, a festive selection of winter delights. Menu items will include arancini and duck pate to start, followed by a tangy cherry sorbet to cleanse the palette before a prawn cocktail and then the main event of stuffed turkey. It will be finished by mince pies and tipsy trifle that will really make it feel like a wonderful Christmas feast! If you’re the ultimate fan of wintery favourites and Christmas is your favourite holiday -and you just can’t wait till December- then this cruise is perfect for you.

  • Paddock and Claw

    In August, the paddock meets the ocean in a varied menu of meats and shellfish hosted in partnership with Haverick Meats and M&G Seafood. Think lobster bites, wagyu delicacies, a seafood platter and t-bone steak followed by a warm apple crumble. This is perfect for those who equally love both meat and fish dishes, and are looking for something hearty.

  • Rib n Ale

    This cruise arrives just in time for Father’s Day in September for those who love smoky meats and their BBQ. Partnering with Andrews Meat and Lion Nathan, this cruise will serve up a 6-course feast of sizzle, smoke and hearty tastes that are bound to leave you feeling satisfied. For drinks, you’ll begin with a paddle of alcohol by James Squire, followed by a Rose, Pinot Noir and Shiraz for the mains. Lastly, for dessert, you’ll be treated to a shot of cider. Your lunch menu begins with tasty morsels of croquettes and mini pies. Drumettes follow this, as well as a lamb rack served with a sweet cranberry slaw. For the main course, pork ribs smothered in a hickory BBQ sauce will enthral your tastebuds. Finish off with something a little sweet and savoury; candied popcorn ice cream.
