I've been on two of these cruises on two occasions, one with a group of work/girlfriends for a birthday and the other i wanted to bring my partner along since i believed it also had a romantic element to the cruise...It is only a flat boat with rails on the side but the ceiling can have fairy lights and draping, and a center table with stools to it and a small bar area that is nice and open, and i enjoyed sitting rugged up, with my glass of sparkling and floating around the harbour.. If you take the dinner and cruise option you will be dropped off at a jetty at the Coral Sea hotel's restaurant for your meal. Its a little tricky jumping from the boat to the jetty but the staff are there to help you out (just make sure you are able bodied with good sealegs, tipsy ladies in heals beware haha) the walk to the open pool side restaurant is about 2 mins at a reg walk. The first cruise the dinner was a 3 course set menu, the second time i cruised we managed to catch the seafood buffet night. The romance of the whole night sweeps you off your feet! I def recommend the Sundowner Sunset cruise.
Airlie beach is really a fantastic place to see. You will be amazed at the beauty of this wonderful region at every turn. Visit one of the several luxurious island resorts where you can sip cocktails by the pool, bask in the sun or relax under the experienced hands of a masseuse. It is truly stunning. Airlie beach is the gateway to the Whitsundays, Queensland's pristine 74 islands.
