Summer has only just begun and it’s already scorching hot outside with near record-breaking temperatures. But if you can handle it a little hotter, load up your friends and head out for a luxury cruise on Lake Norman hosted by Charlotte’s popular radio station Kiss 95.1, Luxury Yacht Charters, Ragin’ Uptown, and Vitality Medical Spa.
This day out on Lake Norman happens every Saturday from 10am-2pm, beginning Memorial Day weekend (May 28th) through Labor Day Weekend (September 3rd) and is an age 21+ only event. Proper ID is required to board the shuttle bus which takes you to the yacht.
The term “luxury cruise” may conjure up images of boarding a cruise ship complete with maitre d’ and nightly turn-down service, and while this yacht is definitely decked out to accommodate such things, it’s far from the stuffy “must dress for dinner” type of cruise. It’s a booze cruise! Most passengers never even see the lower portion of the yacht except for a quick glimpse while boarding and exiting ~ instead, everyone heads to the top deck to get the party started.
For the mere price of $10, you will enjoy an approximate 1-1/2 hour leisurely cruise out on Lake Norman, an hour of swimming in the refreshing cool water (there’s even a slide off the back of the yacht!) and the party just gets started during the hour and half cruise back to the marina. Onboard, you’ll find a cash bar open at 10am (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!), a thumping DJ with all the latest dance tunes, and Kiss 95.1 radio personalities mingling in the crowd. Unless of course they miss the boat like they did this past week and have to flag down and board the yacht like a bunch of hijacking pirates. The well-stocked bar includes several varieties of beer, Mike’s Hard Lemonade products, and various other mixers to compliment the Three Olives Vodka which is also rumored to be a sponsor.
