Our staff had a wonderful Christmas Party aboard the Northern Spirit. The roast beef was fantastic. The hospitality staff were friendly and understanding. The Captain & First Mate were excellent navigators as we were busy dancing and had no idea the boat had docked until the lights came on. Our staff were dancing and having a great time. Our staff always said they didn’t want to go downtown during the hectic holiday season but they really loved being on the Northern Spirit. We had a great time.
