Village Voice Holiday Spirits Hornblower


Were you lucky enough to be on the ultimate holiday party cruise in NYC?

The Village Voice 3rd annual Holiday Spirits Cruise took place aboard the Hornblower Infinity this past Thursday, November 19 and, like they said about Woodstock, if you remember it, you weren’t there!

Thankfully we’re able to fill in the gaps on what is one of our favorite events of the year. If you weren’t there, then here’s a little bit of what you missed just to give you some serious FOMO, and make sure you don’t miss out next year.

Have you ever imagined going to a party where all the best beer, wine and spirits were available along with smaller breweries, wineries and distilleries making waves with their specialized, boutique offerings? Well, that’s just the beginning of what was available aboard the Holiday Spirits cruise.

There was also a great selection of food from the buffet with everything from a carving station to Asian fusion… you have to have something to go with your drinks!

There was also entertainment on all three decks of the Infinity including DJ Tim Martell rocking the dancefloor, and a live salsa band in the Rums of Puerto Rico lounge.

A portion of the proceeds from the cruise will benefit Lifebeat. Lifebeat educates America’s youth about HIV/AIDS awareness and STD prevention. Lifebeat raises awareness at live music events and also provides support for people living with HIV/AIDS and their families.
