A romantic date night with Waterways Cruises is just what we needed. At only a thirty minute drive from Seattle Southside, the Happy Hour Cruise was a perfect option. This 21+ cruise is perfect for couples or intimate groups. Our vessel was filled with a fun, but not too crazy, Bachelorette party.
The indoor dining area was set up beautifully with a great view of the water.
We decided since it was such a nice evening we would sit outside where there were a few tables and chairs set up. This was a perfect view and very private and peaceful.
The appetizers were laid out buffet style, a spread of fruits, vegetables, flat bread with hummus and spinach dip was available along with beef satay and buffalo wings. The food was self-serve and plenty to fill you up.
The narration of the tour was a little hard to hear from the outside. It was trivia game with the prizes of drink tickets from the full service bar located on board. They opened a tab for guests and ran different drink specials every 20 minutes on the hour and a half trip.
The full wait staff was there to bus the tables and take drink orders for your convenience. My husband and I do not drink but still had fun playing the games.
The view from the vessel as we went around Lake Washington was breathtaking! The guide provided fun facts about the area and pointed out sights like Bill Gates mansion. On the way back to the port we had a great view of the city skyline.
The fresh made deserts were set out for our enjoyment. My favorites were the brownies and cookies.
We left this trip feeling full, refreshed and relaxed. This intimate excursion was fun and affordable a must for all couples looking to enjoy each other’s company with a great view of Seattle and some great food.
