Romantic Gondola Cruises on the St. Croix
The colors are starting to change along the St. Croix, making your gondola cruise even more magical. Peak color times for the Stillwater area are typically late September to early October.
It’s a great time for our Cruise and Lunch Special. The Special includes a 45 minute gondola cruise and lunch at the Dock Cafe, conveniently located on the riverside near Gondola Romantica. The Dock Cafe has 4+ stars on Google Reviews.
Plan an especially romantic proposal, celebrate a birthday, wedding or anniversary, or just get away to a relaxing cruise on the river. You can book a sunlit daytime cruise or a moonlit evening cruise.
We can’t even begin to express how wonderful our gondola romantica ride was! It was definitely the highlight of our trip and one we plan to do again. Ramo was so very informative, not too much so that it invaded our romantic interlude, but just as much as we wanted.
There is not a thing we would suggest changing and we will definitely be back as well as recommend this to all of our friends.
We had a gondola ride with Noah on Friday at 9 pm and it was perfect! We were celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary and both my husband and I agree that the best part of celebrating in Stillwater was the gondola ride. Noah was so polite and professional, but still fun. The ride was beautiful and when he starting singing it was over the top great!
Thanks Gondola Romantica for an amazing evening!
The Dock Cafe
Several of our cruises include meals at the Dock Café, with its wonderful riverside deck. Our close relationship with them allows us to coordinate your meal and your cruise. Vegetarian options are available.
Or Picnic as You Cruise
While your gondolier quietly rows behind you, enjoy a gourmet picnic provided by us or bring your own picnic and beverage.
You’ll find sinking into our cushioned seats very relaxing. If the night turns a little cool, we provide down comforters for snuggling.
