As the only dining and entertainment yacht in Northwest Florida, SunQuest Cruises’s SOLARIS yacht offers two unforgettable experiences in May that combine coastal cuisines with a relaxing cruise. The celebration begins with a family-friendly Cinco De Mayo Fiesta Cruise on Thursday, May 5th from 7 – 10 p.m. featuring a three-course meal and live entertainment. Mom is the guest of honor on the Mother’s Day Lunch Cruise on Sunday, May 8th from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m.
“It’s not every day that you get to go on a 125 foot yacht,” stated James Murray, General Manager for SOLARIS. “These signature cruises offer a memorable way to celebrate in true Emerald-coast style.”
Guests can begin the Cinco De Mayo celebration by toasting with a cocktail on the open-air sky deck of the SOLARIS as the yacht cruises the waters and festive live music plays from all three decks. The fiesta continues with a Wild Bean and Corn Salad with Tortilla Chips. Entrée choices include Pollo Relleno (tender chicken stuffed with chorizo, green chiles and topped with cilantro cream), Grande Corn Fajita Quesadilla (roasted corn with onions, peppers and three-cheese blend), Carne Asada Steak (marinated tender flank steak slices with peppers, onions and chipotle cream), or Gulf Fish with Cilanto Sauce. A special kid’s menu features cheese quesadilla with rice and beans. For dessert, the SOLARIS chefs are serving a savory Cheese Cake Flan. The price, including a three-hour cruise, three-course meal and live entertainment, is $50 per adult and $35 per child. Boarding begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 5th with cruise from 7 – 10 p.m.
