Five reasons why the harbour is perfect for a proposal and a Prosecco

It’s almost Summer in Sydney. The sun is well and truly shining, the Prosecco is flowing and our beautiful city in the thick of engagement season.

Our city is alive with romance and we think that there is no better place to plan the perfect proposal than a backdrop of Sydney Harbour. It’s iconic and memorable, and dropping the knee against the dusk purple hues of a perfect Sydney sunset is something he or she is likely to remember forever.

1. We can help you plan the perfect proposal!

Choosing an experienced hospitality business like Captain Cook Cruises means that we can work with you to plan the perfect proposal once you’re on the harbour. We can help you plan a private area, a special cocktail or perhaps you need us to hold onto the ring before you pop the question? Talk to one of our friendly staff about how we can turn this into one of the most memorable experiences of your life.

2. Start with the most luxurious of dinners to get your loved one in the mood.

It is universally true of the old adage that first impressions really do last. The good news is that Captain Cook Cruises on Sydney Harbour will do all of the impressing for you. Jump on board our flagship vessel the Sydney 2000 and take advantage of our Gold Penfolds Dinner cruise either before or after the big moment. This really is the quintessential introduction to gourmet eating and drinking on Sydney Harbour. You and your significant other can celebrate in style with plate matched Penfolds wines including the classic St Henri Shiraz.

3. You’re guaranteed a good photo of the moment on Sydney Harbour.

Literally every moment of this cruise is a picture perfect opportunity! You can’t be on our flagship vessel, Sydney 2000 and not get a good photograph. Head to our upper deck when you’re ready to seal the deal and pop the question, this is where you’ll get a photo that will last the two of you a lifetime. Our friendly staff are also renowned for their hospitality and it’s safe to say they’ve seen a few proposals happen on our cruises in their time. So if you want some help with that special photo, have a chat to one of our experienced crew as you come on-board.

4. Captain Cook Cruises has the best signature cocktails.

Once you’re a newly engaged couple, the bartenders in our new Harbour Bar are masters of liquor mixology. Choose from a wide selection of Sydney inspired cocktails via our contactless mobile ordering system. We’ve got Sydney Espresso Martinis, a signature Coathanger Collins, Bondi G&T and a classic Southerly Busta Iced Tea.

5. Get your friends and family to join you for a celebration into the night.

Make sure you plan to celebrate on the harbour with friends and family right after your proposal. Our new Harbour Bar does pick-ups every 90-minute loops from Circular Quay and King St Wharf, between 12 noon and 10:30pm. Plan your proposal time, and arrange for a group to meet you on board for the rest of the evening. The Harbour Bar will give you and your guests the freedom to come and go as you please. Stay for one circuit of the Harbour, or let the Prosecco flow and the celebrations continue into the night.
