Santa on the Sea

ST. NICK CLIMBS ABOARD FOR BRUNCH ON THE BAY On the roof of the Belle there arose such a clatter…but it was expected, so nothing was the matter. Santa stopped in to San Francisco for the first of three weekends of brunch cruising on the San Francisco Bay as part of Santa’s Champagne Brunch aboard the California Hornblower. Christmas cheer was evident on all decks as Santa visited children both…

A Christmas Eve Dinner Cruise to Remember

First off, happy holidays! This is always a busy time of year, but we all need to find a moment to sit back, relax, and embrace the fun holiday spirit that takes over New York in December.

Village Voice Holiday Spirits Cruise

Were you lucky enough to be on the ultimate holiday party cruise in NYC? The Village Voice 3rd annual Holiday Spirits Cruise took place aboard the Hornblower Infinity this past Thursday, November 19 and, like they said about Woodstock, if you remember it, you weren’t there!

KTU Christmas Cruise & Ugly Sweaters

If you need an excuse for a Christmas cruise and to wear an ugly sweater… this just might be your opportunity. Holiday parties are fun, right? But it’s not always as fun as it could be when your boss and some of those uptight colleagues are around. Thankfully KTU 103.5 FM has the answer, they’re doing their own holiday party and you can come along. Even better, it’s all happening…

Let’s be honest, at some workplaces many people dread the annual office party. That’s when you know you’re doing it wrong. It’s probably no surprise that the same companies where staff look forward to employee appreciation events and holiday parties,…
