SURPRISE Rebecca!!

George knew how to throw his big surprise differently this year by making many secret phone calls and writing many e-mails….. what was George doing?  He was organizing his wife Rebecca’s Surprise 40th Birthday Party Cruise aboard Valara VI…… poor Rebecca was the last one to know!

As family and friends joined together at the end of this Summer, Rebecca arrived

speechless to learn that George was able to

One very happy couple - Rebecca & George

pull this surprise off so well.  This was indeed a great success for George and everyone said the party was beyond their expectations.  No one aboard the yacht this day will ever forget this birthday party.    We very much enjoyed seeing so many happy customers having such a great time.   You are only 40 once Rebecca……enjoy!   George, you are a gem for sure!!

It's fun waiting for the birthday girl to arrive !


As the 2011 Chicago cruising season comes to an end, we still have a few more VALARA VI cruises to shout about; now this one we like because there was no particular reason for this cruise with exception of  “friends getting together for a Chicago skyline cruise !!!”   Now that’s a great reason to have a party.

Multi-talented Jason is an excellent DJ too !!

Jason and his friends join together for a Chicago cruise annually; he sure knows how to throw a party and organize these events; when we met him long ago, we could quickly tell that he has done this before!!   Jason is very professional, multi- talented and his friends sure were a joy to serve!!     Fun fun fun on the water they had!!

VALARA VI is perfect for larger parties like Jason’s was – we have plenty of space for up to 149 guests and the class of the yacht VALARA VI is unmatched in the Chicago industry.    It is easy to set your 2012 date for your special day and wedding couples… is time to plan !!  We look forward to your call for 2012 bookings.   773-788-9494.
