A boat cruise along the town’s canals was the perfect way to end the day. We looked forward to the leisurely evening being fed and guided through this historic town. Another cruise was leaving just as ours did and I noticed the two captains arguing in the moments before we set off.
Just as the first course was landing on our plates there was a serious jolt from the back of the boat. My partners wine flew across the table landing in my lap.
One boat then rammed the other in a bid to stay in front. Tourists on the other boat were encouraged to throw their food at us and soon a fully-fledged food fight was on.
A block of cheese can result in a nasty bruise. At one point bottles of red wine flew through the air one striking the opposing captain.
By the end, both boats were a mess of food scraps. Several tourists expressed outrage and several wanted to know if they could book for tomorrow.
