Brunching + Cruising

From the title of this post, can there possibly be a better combination of things?! I mentioned on Monday, I was lucky enough to be part of Blog & Tweet Boston's group of bloggers to cruise with Odyssey Cruises this past Sunday for their Brunch Cruise. They were introducing their new "Bloody Mary & Mimosa Bar" and Gary and I took full advantage of testing them out!! 
The boat boards conveniently at Rowes Wharf in the Financial District and you are greeted by friendly staff all the way through! Even though the cruise doesn't depart until 1:00 PM, as soon as your board at 12:00 PM you are welcome to get started enjoying the food, drinks & music. 
Each setting has a champagne flute filled and ready to be consumed! 
There were three food stations for our deck, notice the made to order waffle bar!! 
Lucky for us we brought our appetites as their brunch stations were amazing! I may or may not have eaten two these...
The Bloody Mary Bar Cart was one of the highlights of the cruise - do you notice the oysters and shrimp on the side to help adorn your drink?! 
After we stuffed ourselves, we went to take in the views! 
It could not have been a more perfect day for a cruise!! 
+A few fellow bloggers: El from The Beauty Isle & Tanya from Leopard Lace & Cheesecake 
+ Clearly my orange obsession is in full force as is my arm pop pose....I might have a problem! 
They've recently renovated their top deck - very swanky!  
The dessert bar was the best way to cap off a pretty fantastic afternoon! I mean chocolate covered strawberries and rice crispy's drizzled with melted chocolate - heavenly! 
 
I honestly can't rave enough about this cruise!! It's such a great treat while your visiting or if you live in the city and are looking for something a little different to do for a date night! I'm looking forward to a special occasion (hint hint to Gary) when we can partake in the dinner cruise because the views will be just as stellar! Also if you plan on visiting, Chicago, Boston or Washington D.C. - check out their cruises as well! 
Have you ever taking a dinner or brunch cruise? Do you think you're a boat person?
P.S. Have you entered the Go Chic Yourself Giveaway?!
Disclosure: Gary and I received a free brunch cruise with Odyssey, with the exception of gratuity, which we happily paid since the service was outstanding. I was not compensated for my review and all opinions are 100% my own!

  20. What an amazing experience! Anything that involves Mimosas and Bloodys is a must do in my book. Love the arm pop pose-its just such a natural stance for me these days that I don't even realize I'm doing it!

  24. Sometimes I wish I liked Bloody's because all those fixins look SO good! I'll just stick to Mimosas :) That waflle looked amazing by the way. I ordered one at a cafe this past sunday and they drenched it in what looked like strawberry pie filling so I didn't eat it :( I'm still craving one!

  26. This looks so fun! Sign me up for some mimosas any day! That waffle you made....mmmmm make me one too!!!

    I went on a dinner cruise when I was in New Orleans my senior year of high school, which was many MANY moons ago. (Before Katrina that is how old I am.) It was so fun to be on the boat and looking out into the city at night!
