Welcome to the Central Florida Cruise Club Website!
Thank you for stopping by the best boating club in Central Florida. We’re glad to have you here today whether or not you are a member.
Please check back often for the latest club news including cruises (both upcoming and details of cruises completed), newsletters, photos and videos.
Our cruise to Loggerhead Daytona was held September 30th – October 2nd. Six boats arrived on Friday during the afternoon and evening and one on Saturday. There was one drive-in.
Friday evening we had docktails in the boater’s lounge amidst a raging thunderstorm and heavy rain. We enjoyed chili and various other appetizers, discussing what had been going on in each others’ lives since the last time we were all together. The evening was spent listening to the music at Caribbean Jack’s, while others continued visiting.
Saturday at Noon we had hot dogs/hamburgers and the other fixings at the grill. The marina served free beer, wings and salad at the pool for their customer appreciation day from 2:00 – 4:00. Everyone enjoyed the pool and hot tub and more conversation. Some of us had another round of hot dogs and hamburgers, while others ate at Caribbean Jack’s for dinner. The weather on Saturday was much better, although warm, and we were glad to have the pool to cool off.
The 50/50 was won by Brian Shay’s family, relatives of Bill and Penny Waldo. They donated it back to the club. It was a good weekend with friends and new guests!
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
