Are you lost for ideas on how to celebrate the last night of the 2017 Carnival? Worry no more! A fun-filled masquerade cruise is ready to set sail to show you the magic of the Venice Lagoon at night ... On board: gourmet fish dinner, masks, music and entertainment to spend the craziest night of the year in a very original way!

The crew will welcome you inside the Doge of Venice with a welcome cocktail on the 'Sun deck', the panoramic heated roof-terrace from which you can admire breath-taking views of Venice.

The Doge of Venice has a large indoor reception hall, toilets equipped with facilities for mobility-impaired guests, heated roof deck, cloakroom staffed by the cabin crew and kitchen where the fresh fish dishes on the menu will be prepared. A wine expert will be at your service to explain the organoleptic qualities of the Berici Hills wines of the Castello di Rubaro winery, purposely selected to enhance the flavours of the various dishes served at the table by the crew:

Starters

  • Octopus Carpaccio with pink grapefruit and vinaigrette
  • Mother of pearl pasties with cod cream
  • Confit of cuttlefish with purple salad
  • Scallops au gratin

After departure, near St Mark’s Square, the Doge of Venice will cruise on the waters of the Giudecca Canal and along the Venice Lido and finally head for the smaller islands in an atmosphere evocative of a mysterious past.

The craziest night of the year will be spent strictly in mask and with music, thanks to the entertainment offered by the crew... who will also delight you with a pleasant surprise at the end of the evening! The magic of a cruise on the lagoon, the fun-filled spirit of a carnival party and the charm of the closing night of the Venice Carnival ... You will feel catapulted into a timeless space, reminiscent of the evanescent pleasures of the Venice of the past when the city, at the peak of its magnificence, celebrated the end of the Carnival as a time when all was allowed...

Do not hesitate to book your seat on board and celebrate the end of Carnival with a not-to-be-missed party!
