The suggested ramp is Halifax Harbor Marina, 450 Basin Street, Daytona Beach. Take I-4 to U.S. 92 Exit straight to Beach Street. Turn right and then left on Basin Street.

Marina info –

– -Small boater’s lounge with coffee pot
– – Pool and hot tub, with an adjacent bar

We will have docktails on Friday Evening. For lunch on Saturday, hot dogs and hamburgers and fixings will be served at the grill. Due to the trouble we had last year in trying to schedule a group dinner at Caribbean Jack’s, we will forego the group dinner and go in small groups, unless they have new management that is more receptive to reserving a table for us.

If you would like to join us for this cruise, please send the following info:

captain’s name, boat name and length and day arriving. We will give a list to the Marina to make the reservations.

Thanks, Linda

Tampa Marriott Waterside Cruise Review – Tampa Boat Show

2016 September 13
by Margot and posted in the Cruise Reviews category

What an amazing time we had at the Tampa Marriott Waterside cruise!  The weather was beautiful and I don’t think we could have done much to perfect this weekend. The Marriott was such a great venue and couldn’t have been more gracious and accommodating to our group.  The Dockmaster (Earle) was beyond helpful to everyone in our group including setting up tables, chairs, and even a daily newspaper for everyone.  Our cruisers were able to use all the amenities at the Marriott.  The spacious showers were located in the Spa area and were equipped with everything you would need for your shower, right down to razors, cotton swabs, etc.

Thanks to Frank Stoeber, Regal and Quality Boats we were given complimentary tickets to the Boat Show for our group.

Our cruisers began to arrive on Thursday.

Friday officially started with Docktails and Dinner on our own floating platform.  The chairs were set up in a circle to create our family style group setting.  The food was delicious and plentiful.  As a main course, we had delicious Italian Meatball Heroes and Pizza from a New York pizzeria.  Along with our main course, we had so many wonderful side dishes and desserts.  After dinner we all sat around to listen, talk and laugh until our tummies hurt.

On Saturday morning we reconvened on our platform for OJ, donuts and muffins and of course more good conversation to get ready for our day at the Boat Show.  The sun was hot so several of our group enjoyed an afternoon at the pool, football games at the Marriott Sports Bar or some enjoyed an afternoon nap.  Quite relaxing and perfect with the choices of amenities.  We enjoyed the conveniences and amenities so much that we decided to have dinner at the Champions Sports Bar at the Marriott.  The Marriott was so appreciative, they bought our first round of drinks for the entire group.  After dinner we gathered on our floating platform for more desserts, goodies, friendship and conversation.

We all enjoyed new friends, old friends and most importantly cherished memories that will last a lifetime.  The unanimous consensus is to make this venue an annual cruise event.

Thanks to everyone for a GREAT weekend
