Bottle Message Enhancements

Add just the right touch to your gondola ride by preparing a personalized message that’s perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, and proposals.

Bottle Message – $35.00 

Email us a special message for your loved one and we take it from there! We transfer it (in a beautiful font) to parchment scroll paper, roll it, tie it with a decorative ribbon, slip it into a clear wine bottle and cork it. Sometime during the cruise, the bottle magically appears next to your guest.

This is Gondola Adventures’ signature surprise – everyone loves to get a Message in a Bottle!

Decorative Box – $39.99

A beautiful decorative treasure chest stores the bottle message (in a sheer organza sleeve) so you can display and treasure it for years to come.
