December is the perfect time of year to make new memories with family and friends. It’s a time for giving thanks, sharing some laughs, and maybe even treating ourselves to a few extra goodies to combat the winter doldrums. There’s always the ever handy New Year’s Eve Resolution to make up for any over indulgences.
It must have been a pretty dark month, until, one day, over 40 years ago, one little brightly lit boat illuminated the night. From that humble beginning, the Parade of Lights has grown to include over 50 boats with thousands of spectators enjoying the sparkling nights from December 3 to December 23rd.
During this time, we will be running our Carol Ship Cruises here from Granville Island-another great spot to get your holiday shopping done and maybe even enjoy some roasted chestnuts while checking out some of the great buskers performing on the Island. Why not end your day relaxing on one of our Carol Ship Cruises with family and friends?
Our Carol Ship Cruises include a Holiday Buffet with all the trimmings, including Tender Roasted Turkey and Honey Glazed Ham, so, no need to make dinner after your day of shopping. Our cruises are fun and interactive, so don’t be surprised if one of our cheeky Cruise Directors gets you to join in on the Carol Sing Along!
From all of us at Accent Cruises-we wish you all the best during the Holiday Season and hope you’ll join us in December!
