St. Johns River Cruise aboard the Barbara Lee


From its home port on Lake Monroe in charming downtown Sanford, the Barbara Lee cruises the St. Johns, serving up superior food, live music and dancing.  You’ll also have  close-up views of the area’s abundant wildlife.  You’ll see prolific bird life - majestic great herons, “snakebirds,” osprey, eagles - plus turtle and alligators lazing along the banks.  During the cooler months, manatees are often spotted as they move in from the ocean to bask in the warmer river water and snack on water hyacinths.

Upon boarding, and after seating, you’ll be treated to the ship’s morning buffet loaded with fruit, salads and their famous, yummy house-made sticky buns.  Be careful not to eat too much - save room for your luscious lunch.  The food aboard the Barbara Lee is cooked fresh in the ship’s kitchen and you can choose from delicious entrees including prime rib, salads and fish.  Dessert and beverages are included.  In between all this wonderful array of food, sit inside and enjoy the entertainment or relax on deck for a delightful, narrated three-hour cruise along the St. Johns River.

Key West - Another Trip to Paradise 

$759 pp/dbl  |  $999 Single Occup

We’re Staying Right in Key West - So Join Us for Another Adventure in Paradise! The Island of Key West, also known as the Conch Republic, is the southernmost point in the continental United States. Located closer to Cuba than to Miami, Key West is Florida’s irreverent southernmost subtropical paradise. Palm-lined streets with gingerbread mansions and tin-roofed conch houses were home to Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, Calvin Cline, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Frost and Jimmy Buffett, a few of the famous people who discovered the island city whose Bahamian and Cuban heritage in large part was inspired by Bahamian wreckers, commercial fishermen, spongers and Cuban cigar makers.

Discover modern art treasures by Key West’s artists among dozens of galleries by day, and then become part of the sensational sunset celebration held each evening at Mallory Square, when tightrope walkers, jugglers and animal acts perform before the fiery sun settling into the Gulf of Mexico.  As night settles, the streets, lined with  sidewalk cafes, open-air bars, legendary pubs and world-class restaurants, come alive.
