A boat cruise is one of the more romantic ways to travel as it brings to mind a bygone age when grizzled sea dogs explored the oceans while slow-dancing with each other beneath a whirling disco ball. Woo your sweetie on the water with today's Groupon: for $299, you get two tickets for a three-hour Pacific Avalon Yacht Charters Valentine's Day dinner cruise (a $640 value) on either Sunday, February 13 at 12 p.m. or 5 p.m., or Monday, February 14 at 6 p.m.
Pacific Avalon's fleet of three luxury yachts act as dreamy stages for magical moments, romantic dinner parties, and open-shore celebrations as they glide along the harbor shorelines of Newport Beach. Couples can choose to climb aboard the 100-foot Royal Princess, the 128-foot Ambassador, or the hulking 150-foot Majestic depending on how much leg room they need for dining, dancing, and bottomless glasses of bubbly. As you watch the sun ease into the sea, like an old man into a bath, you and your date can nibble through layers of baby swiss from the complimentary cheese display as you whisper secrets into each others' ears—such as the location of an 11th, detachable toe.
When dinner arrives at your flower-adorned table, carnisseurs can slather globs of horseradish and french mustard onto carved slices of roast beef or daintily cut plates of lemon-and-rosemary-marinated chicken breasts. Vegetarians and seafarers, meanwhile, can take their pick of whitefish, rice pilaf, or a bowl of bow tie pasta lightly tossed in olive oil, tomatoes, and basil. After a dessert of fresh-fruit tarts, strawberry layer cake, or chocolate sweets that warrant a trip to the confessional, a live DJ will heat up the dance floor before it’s overrun by yetis doing the Running Man.
