Dining at sea is an extraordinary affair, and all the more so with Royal Albatross’ sunset dinner cruise. Step aboard this absolute beauty of a sailing yacht, that accommodates up to 130 people when out at sea. While panoramic views of the sea are to be expected, there is also a dazzling showcase of fireworks that’ll light up the night sky. 

Dinner starts from 6.30pm onwards – the standard option is a dinner buffet, so for a more lavish experience, make sure to top up $60 for a four-course menu that’s paired with wine. The menu is seasonal, but you can expect to be tucking into premium proteins such as a Peking duck salad and baked snapper.

Price: From $225 per adult

Have your pick of luxury yachts with Yacht BBQ, a four-hour charter service where the main highlight is a sprawling barbecue.

Our pick is the Elegance Superyacht, a stunning vessel for an intimate party. It fits up to 50 people but you can charter it from $6,588 for up to 35 guests. It has ample space with two bars and two jacuzzis, making it the perfect recipe for an unforgettable dinner party.

Intimate dinner cruise under the stars

Romance is in the air with Wanderlust Adventures’ dinner cruise under the stars. This one’s for the adventurous couples, a four-hour private cruise to the Southern Islands. Step aboard the Artemis 1, a 34 foot yacht – it’s a snug fit for 10 but spacious for two with a separate alfresco dining area, a kitchenette, an air-conditioned cabin, and a toilet. 

The dinner itself proves as exquisite, with a grilled chicken dressed with velvety butternut puree and a side of mushrooms. It comes paired with a complimentary bottle of white wine so you can toast to a memorable night ahead. Give a hand at fishing under the guidance of a seasoned fishing guide – all fresh catches will be grilled and served for dinner. The cruise is also pet-friendly, so you can bring along your dog or cat if it’s under six kilograms.

Price: From $749 per couple

When aboard the open-decked ferry of Marina South Ferries, you’ve got the wind in your hair and sunshine on your face. This two-hour sunset cruise is the perfect blend of culinary delight and scenic exploration, with a halal-certified dinner that’s prepared onboard using only fresh, seasonal ingredients. It is intended to be a casual dining experience though, so expect fuss-free bites like chicken satay, teriyaki chicken chops, and sliders. 

Once you set sail at 6.45pm, it’s vista after vista through the Marina Bay region, Sentosa, and the Singapore Southern Straits – a sightseeing cruise through islands like Kusu Island and Lazarus Island. The twinkling city lights will also be a sight to behold. While the ferry runs regular hours, it also operates during special holidays like Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve.

Price: From $68 per adult or $132 per couple

It’s quite the adventure with local tour company Let’s Go Tour, since you’ll be setting off from Changi Point Ferry Terminal in a wooden bumboat. While it isn’t the luxurious experience you might be expecting, it’s just a quick pit stop at Smith Marine Floating Restaurant – Singapore’s last kelong, an offshore floating platform built with wood. Once commonly used by local fishermen, these kelongs were where the city sourced its supply of fresh seafood. 

After a short wait, you’ll then be transferred to a comfortable catamaran along with your exquisite four-course seafood dinner. It includes freshly caught fish from the kelong, Thai-style crispy chicken, stir-fried vegetables, and seafood fried rice. The sailing route brings you by Singapore’s Northern Islands, including the serene Pulau Ubin.

Price: From $150 per adult

Dining cruise around the city

While traipsing through the Clarke Quay riverfront area, you’d have spotted the iconic Singapore River Cruise making its leisurely rounds through the Singapore River. Bumboats were once a common sight on this historic waterway, used decades back to transport trading goods from ship to shore. 

Now, you’ll get to experience the charm of this heritage boat, all with guided commentary as it navigates past the Merlion, Boat Quay, and Marina Bay. Dinner is either a hearty beef burger or meatless laksa lasagne. It goes without saying though, that the food is secondary on this 40-minute dinner cruise since you’ll be too captivated with the breathtaking views and historical anecdotes. 

Price: From $27.43
