Around Marina Bay with Blue Star Yachting




It seems like there's a recent trend of yacht parties in Singapore. So riding on the wave, I went for a wine appreciation sunset cruise courtesy of Blue Star Yachting.



We were greeted with a glass of champagne to start the evening. Nuts, cheese and ham platters were served to go with our drinks.



It was a delightful evening as everyone let their hair down and lounged on the deck, enjoying the breeze.



We caught a bit of the sunset but the sun was mostly hidden behind the clouds sadly. I imagine it would be really breath-taking on a clear day.



I went to take a peek under the deck and found this cozy bedroom! It's a lot more spacious than I thought it would be. The Sunreef is air-conditioned throughout and boasts 4 en-suite double cabins. It has a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge, freezer, ice maker, oven and microwave. The spacious saloon area is ideal for entertaining and is fitted with an impressive Harman/Kardon surround sound stereo system, complete with 2 outdoor loudspeakers, and a widescreen Samsung TV and DVD player.


We sailed to Marina Bay and took in the beautiful city lights. It's an angle you rarely get to view Singapore from. Unfortunately since we were on waters, the photos I took were all blurry. Then we turned back and passed by Sentosa where Celine, the captain, stopped us at the perfect spot to watch the fireworks!

Besides chilling on the deck, you will also have access to water activities such as inflatable floats, kayaks and snorkeling masks. I don't know about you but I think it would make such a great getaway! Imagine crusing down to Southern Islands, stopping for a snorkeling or kayaking session, then relaxing on the hammock watchiig the sunset. Ah, bliss.

And what's a yacht ride without food? They have BBQ, buffet and finger food menus for you to choose from. You can also choose to self cater with a $200 self catering fee which inclues access to kitchen, BBQ equipment, service by crew, etc.

The Sunset Cruise we went for is available from Monday to Thursday, 6pm to 9pm.
Up to 23 guests: S$ 2,050
Up to 30 guests: S$ 2,350
Up to 37 guests: S$ 2,550
