Ida Rocks The Boat
On Saturday evening, June 6th 80 (local) Mount Ida Alumni enjoyed a dinner boat cruise aboard the Spirit of Boston, one of Boston’s luxury cruise lines. The boat set sail from the Seaport World Trade Center Marine Terminal in Boston, for the perfect mix of dining, dancing, entertainment and absolutely amazing views. Mustang Alums, gathered to eat a delicious dinner and catch up with one another.
There was a DJ on the lower level who helped the Mustangs “Rock the Boat.” The alums showed their Mighty Spirit as the DJ got the party started with a mix of current hits and old favorites. Shortly after the boat left the dock, everyone made their way outside to take in the beautiful views of Seaport Harbor and the Boston skyline.
Just as the sun was setting, the captain pulled up along the Boston Harbor area, making for the perfect photo op. As the night went on, more and more people made their way to the dance floor to show off their dancing skills. Eventually, the night had to come to an end and the boat returned to the dock, and everyone left with full stomachs, plenty of pictures and great memories. – See photos of the many Mustang Moments that were captured that night:
