Hi Jason, We're so glad you enjoyed your gondola ride. It sounds like you went at night, which does lend itself to romance with the lights of the Coronado Cays sparkling on the water and the quiet of the evening surrounding you. Thanks for taking a moment to share your experience! Grazie Mille, Saverio

The 50-minute gondola ride turned out to be about 35 minutes. Didn't cover very much of the Cays. Could be the time of year, but was fairly boring. We paid $95 plus a $20 tip, but left feeling we could have had a lot more fun for $115 doing something else.

Hello sberger, I must address your comment in regard to the length of the gondola ride, but first, let me say, I am very sorry to hear that you felt your gondola cruise was boring. That's an uncommon reaction to our gondola rides, but to each his own, as they say! While we cannot fault your personal opinion of the experience, the statement that your gondola cruise was 35 minutes isn't accurate. After reviewing our surveillance camera footage, we were able to determine that your gondolier greeted you promptly, and you returned to the office, having completed your cruise, an hour later. It appears that you were, in fact, treated to a full-length gondola cruise. I can't speak to why the perception may be incorrect, I only wish your experience had been enjoyable for you. All the best, Saverio

We loved our gondola ride!! We took the sunset cruise and we weren't disappointed! The sunset was awesome! Our gondolier was excellent (sorry I forgot his name). I was afraid I might get queasy, but the ride was so smooth. He was very nice, even taking pictures of us with my
