The VDO Cruise ship is well under way. Each week we will visit another Port of Call starting with China on February 1st. On February 10th we will cruise into France and then on the 17th, we will visit India. We end the month in Jamaica with rum and coke slushies, jerk chicken and Cool Runnings playing on the big screen at the drive-in movie on February 24. Don’t forget to get your free tickets in the Box office (no ticket needed for movie)! Love is in the air as we cruise into February. The VDO Love Boat will stop in the Ballroom on February 12th to not only celebrate Valentines Day but our couples who have been married for 50 years. Congratulations on this beautiful milestone!

The Brooks and Dunn tribute band, Neon Circus plays on Feb. 16 and Voyager, will be rocking the music of Journey on Feb. 23rd. There is also Music on the Patio, Monday through Saturday from 4-7. That’s not all though, every other Sunday beginning Feb 6, the live music continues on the Patio from 10:00am to 1:00pm because the Cactus Grill will begin serving brunch. Let’s Party! Isn’t that why Bloody Mary’s were invented? The party doesn’t stop there. Meet us every Tuesday for free coffee, donuts, and updates in the Ballroom. Doors open at 8:00am. You can also find Chef Wayne and his team every Tuesday on the patio serving weekly specialty dinners from 4:30 – 6:00. Tuesday sure is a busy day because we also have Bingo beginning at 6:30 in the Ballroom. We end the month with an amazing Mardi Gras Party and Parade. This year’s theme is Voodoo Daddy, so get your golf carts ready! The Parade will begin on February 28th at 1:00. Lunch follows with your choice of either Jambalaya or a Po’ Boy Sandwich for $9.50 and add on a shrimp cocktail for $6.00. Beer and wine are 25 cents!
