EC Un-Plugged:

Our cruises, employees and customers – the real deal.

Summer Cruisin’. Nothing quite like it.

June 24, 2010 By: Entertainment Cruises Category: Entertainment Cruises - National

The sizzling summer heat has officially arrived and whether you are lucky enough to enjoy it outside, in a cubicle or somewhere in between, it leaves a rush of warm, gooey happiness in your veins. Or it does in mine, at least.

Sure, it makes sitting in my office chair a bit more of a struggle, but it makes me appreciate the time I do have outside just a little bit more. Oh, who am I kidding? A whole lot more! I want to take advantage of every second I have in the sunshine. I want to frolic in the park, walk aimlessly around and, if I could somehow find a way, spend the hot summer days and nights on our boats. No doubt about it.

A Brunch, Lunch, Dinner or Moonlight Cruise is a really cool to way to experience the city in which you live from a truly unique, mesmerizing point of view. Yeah, you may have seen those most notable sites 5, 10, 20 times. But have you seen them all at the same time? In the same couple of hours? Not unless you’ve swam the sea, river, lake, whatever.

We offer a unique way to experience your town from a tourist’s perspective. You will see everything the way we see it everyday, for the very first time. Feel the warm summer breeze as you gaze out at the never-ending views from our open-air decks. To be impressed, dare I say amazed by the sites you walk by every day, the landscape you’ve grown accustomed too, is nothing short of, exactly that – amazing.

So head to the water this summer and let us treat you to dining, entertainment, music and a very special atmosphere as you delight in all that your city has to offer. Check your city’s webpage to learn about specialty cruises sailing this summer, and to see a complete cruise schedule.

Summer’s almost over. Our cool cruises are not. (Hurray for you)!

Summer stickiness is weakening and a cooler breeze is making its entry. But fun out on the water is not wavering. Not a bit. Entertainment Cruises many’ vessels offer Brunch, Lunch, Midday, Dinner, Moonlight and a variety of specialty cruises all week long every day of the year.

So, if you’re thinking that summer’s gone by and you have yet to do something unique, think EC (Entertainment Cruises).
