Today, the Chicago Skyline Private Cruise Yacht VALARA Celebrates the Legacy of a Legend and a valued client, Neil Diamond.

Captain Val, President and Captain Mary Antoniette, Event Coordinator for Adventure Sea Tours, and the Luxury Yacht VALARA have been a little saddened to learn that our favorite star of all time, Neil Diamond was recently diagnosed with Alzheimers disease.   Because of this, his tour schedule had eventually become a bit grueling for him to handle, and via the advice of his doctors,

His music will always be in our lives

Neil reluctantly cancelled the rest of his 2018 world tour.  Of course all ticket purchases are being refunded, but we know how much Neil enjoyed pleasing his many fans, we know this is a difficult step for him.  This will also be a huge adjustment for his many crew which include his road manager, a full sound and lighting crew, background singers, security crew, flight crew, and dozens of other folks who toured with him and were employed with him for many many years.

Not only are Neil Diamond’s songs all over the VALARA’s computerized music playlists for our own clients to enjoy, but he is truly is our favorite!  We have personally enjoyed his concerts for many years.  A fun Story:  We must reminisce on one event we were preparing for; we received a call from a client who wanted to to come aboard our yacht VALARA on the Fourth of July one year.  At the time, we were not even aware that we were talking to Neil’s road manager, Michael.  Soon we learned… and soon we seen, with 85 guests in tow, our client was Neil and his entire road crew!    Neil was as nice as can be, he came dressed very casual as the rest of his crew was, they were very friendly happy people, they were here to have a fun night and that they did!!  Neil was very gracious to us and he was “more than happy” to take pictures with the two of us, (shown below) along with concert pictures.  As he boarded our yacht Valara, Neil seemed a bit concerned, in a fun way, he inquired as to “where does this ship sail exactly?”   Once his question was answered he said “oh that is good, so you stay close to shore, I really need all of these people you have on board this ship, and I need them very badly so I must make sure they make it back to shore, we have shows to do!”    Funny indeed!  What a great guy!   

Thanks for reading the above story, and the good news is “yes there is some good news here.”  Neil will still be writing his songs, he will continue doing what he loves, therefore, we will still receive more surprises, more lovely music.   But the flights, hotels, constant shows and living out of a suitcase part of his life, well Neil, his crew and all of us will surely miss that part.   Sometimes difficult adjustments must be made, we understand that.    We wish Neil Diamond the very best with many future years of happiness, good health and living a comfortable life.   This thing we call life, it is short, be happy!!  Thank you Neil Diamond for times you have given to us.  Your a living legend with timeless music.  You are a man that we and millions of others will never forget!

Neil Diamond and road crew visits M\V VALARA in Chicago for a skyline cruise!



Beat the Winter blues by having something warm and sunny to look forward to!   We write this today in order to first thank our many repeat customers for their business!  The relationships we have built over the years mean a lot to us and we always remember each and every one of you!   We would like our clients to get their best dates of choice and encourage you to book your event as soon as possible in order to do so.    We look forward to seeing you again and serving you in 2017!!     773-788-9494 please ask for Mary.

Creative tips for entertaining employees, clients and family.

Thinking out of the box and building relationships!


STRENGTHENING RELATIONSHIPS: Why is this important? These days we are constantly multi-tasking, feeling we are being pulled in many different directions and stressed because we can hardly keep up. Does this sound true for you? If so, then look around because you are not alone. The same is true for your co-workers, your family and your friends as well. Stress takes a toll on your productivity and sometimes even your morale, happiness and your health. How can we boost morale in the office and make life more rewarding both at work and with family? * Spend quality time together and plan your larger get-togethers at a venue that offers you the right atmosphere for what you are out to accomplish.


SPEND QUALITY TIME with those who are important in your life.
Think about the subject of lifting the morale of those you work with and strengthening your relationships with View More: important in your life, just for a moment. Your co-workers, they are important right? We spend most of our waking hours working along side our co-workers, they must be important to you, your business and to your company, right? Do you have important clients and enough of them to entertain them for a day out once in a while, once a year maybe? If someone in your family is having a special milestone in their life, it takes very little to organize something really nice and memorable for everyone involved. What is the point we are getting at here?

Work-Life Balance: Get on out there and make this happen. Spend quality time with those that matter in your life. Get-togethers, employee entertaining, family milestones….which venue that you use to gather in these respects – it’s all about the atmosphere!

VALARA - Banner 2

ATMOSPHERE means everything
The “venue \ atmosphere” that you choose when planning quality time with employees, family, friends or clients is the most important decision that you can make in this respect. Large gatherings – lets think for a moment about those company picnics in the park where everyone and their kids are invited. We see our employees View More: around chasing their kids, basically sitting on their own with their family and they are hardly talking to anyone else because they are too busy tending to their family. Right, or almost right? So then, what do we really remember about these types of events, think about it. How about those company outings where you all go to the baseball game. Everyone is sitting in a row of seats; can they really talk to one another even if they wanted to? What do we remember about these outings except for maybe the game we seen? Those family milestones, the birthdays, anniversaries and the weddings all spent inside a banquet hall, how many details about these gatherings do you really remember? Come on now, there must be something about those gatherings that you remember right? Ok point made, the venue \ atmosphere is the single most important choice when you are planning to spend quality time with others, no matter what the occasion is for.



Take the time to spend “real quality time together” in the right atmosphere!

Employee outings, client entertaining and family milestones spent aboard VALARA are remembered forever and you may already know this simply because you have been here yourself! So what are you waiting for? If you have not spent time on board VALARA in a couple of years, we have to ask you why is that? Is this too expensive? Are you worried about the weather?

In case you did not know, we offer a worry free environment here with plenty of space for comfort regardless of Mother Nature, we make event planning very easy and we offer a wide variety of all-inclusive packages that fit most budgets. Whether your wish is to hold an upscale elegant event, or just to have a simple afternoon outing, like a yacht picnic for instance, it’s simple but still very memorable stuff here folks! Remember, it’s all about the atmosphere!

That being said, we invite you to come on out and join us in 2016 and spend quality time with those important people in your life!




We welcome Chicago’s Sprintime!

March 20, 2016

We are so happy Spring is here, aren’t you? Just think of all the special moments you have to celebrate this year and let us top the cake on making those memories happen! Call your free event planner today at 773-788-9494, ask for Mary.
