    I’d like to win these tickets because I’m dating someone new and would like to impress her. It’s New Year’s afterall.

    Oh my! My wife and I have always dreamed of a Portland Spirit Cruise but have never had the $ to do it. It has been a struggle this year for us as it has been for so many. This would be a dream come true to attend this wonderful event New Year’s Eve! Thank you for the chance!!

  3. sami December 19, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    oh this would be a perfect way to start the new year with all the losts ive had these last few months :) please pick me!

  4. Steve Ferrero December 19, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    Would love to spend New Year’s this way.

  5. Erica Rosser December 19, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    Two things I love ~ New Years and the Portland Spirit. Will be married 19 years on the 31st. Not going to make it to 20. This will be a great way to celebrate the change.

  6. Hope December 19, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    This would be the perfect way to see the Portland Spirit for the first time. I’d love to go on NYE!

  7. Katrina Hassler December 19, 2012 at 11:36 am #

    Would make my New Years!!!! My boyfriends and I would love to spend the night together on your boat. Sounds like so much fun!!!!!

  8. J.L.G. December 19, 2012 at 11:43 am #

    To whom it may concern: I’m sorry you have to work on *Christmas Eve* to draw a winning name and e-mail them, but keep in mind you’re going to make someone very very happy this holiday season! We all thank you!

  9. Oliver December 19, 2012 at 11:46 am #

    This sounds like a great way to surprise my fiancee! I’d love to win!

  10. Laura December 19, 2012 at 11:50 am #

    Oooh pick me, this sounds so fun!

  11. Tania December 19, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    My husband and I went a few years ago. Not only was it a beautiful trip, the food was delicious, but we were able to meet some really nice, new people. Finding something we both enjoy is hard sometimes, but this is one thing, we both really enjoyed and would do again.

  12. Megan December 19, 2012 at 12:10 pm #

    My 21st birthday is on New Years Eve! My boyfriend and I were both born and raised in Portland and neither of us have been on the Portland Spirit although it is something we would love to do. We are college students strapped for extra cash. If we won it would be a great way to ring in a new year together and celebrate a milestone birthday!

  13. Mathew December 19, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    This sounds like just about the perfect way to ring in the New Year. Help my lady friend and I kiss at midnight on a boat?

  14. Sheena December 19, 2012 at 12:26 pm #

    I have never been on the Spirit in Portland. I am deservig because I am a single mother that needs to get out and have a fun new years! I worrk 5 days a week. I deserve to be put in First Class for once in my life! Please Pick Me!!!

  15. Kaitlin December 19, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    My husband and I just moved to Portland about a month and a half ago and are still getting to know the city. We would love the opportunity to be aboard the Portland Spirit, especially on New Years Eve! We don’t know many people here yet and have no plans for NYE yet. I would love to surprise him with these tickets!

  16. mike cummings December 19, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

    The Portland Spirit, could rase my wifes spirit!

  17. Mallory December 19, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    Portland is my favorite city and I have never had the chance to be on the Portland Spirit. I have to leave behind this beautiful city in February to work on the East Coast as a Navy nurse. I would love the chance to experience such a special part of Portland before I have to leave!!!

  18. Sara Kelly December 19, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    I would absolutely love to take my husband on this cruise!

    He works so hard, he tells me I am beautiful, and he does our dishes. He deserves a night away that he doesn’t have to shell out big bucks for!!

    He paid last time we went on the Portland Spirit, maybe you can help me take him this year!!

  19. Kaitlyn December 19, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    My boyfriend and I have been talking about a dinner cruise on the Portland Spirit for the last 2 years. This would be such a wonderful surprise to celebrate the new year. Portland spirit, please choose us!! :)

  20. Gene December 19, 2012 at 2:14 pm #

    I would love to win this because my hubs and I haven’t been out on New Year’s Eve since we’ve had kids!

  21. jenna mumba December 19, 2012 at 2:49 pm #

    I would LOVE to surprise my husband with this. He’s never gone on a boat like this before. We had a baby earlier this year so the quiet romantic night would mean the world to me!

  22. Samantha Jonasson December 19, 2012 at 3:06 pm #

    I would love to win these and surprise my fiancé with a romantic New Year’s Eve!!!!

  23. Kim December 19, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

    Our anniversary is Jan. 1, and because of so many places being closed on New Year’s Day, we like to celebrate it on New Year’s Eve. A Portland Spirit cruise would be a perfect New Year’s Eve/anniversary event – and we’ve never been on the ship before. :)

  24. Amie December 19, 2012 at 5:29 pm #

    I want to go!!! Fun.

  25. Oscar Marquez December 19, 2012 at 7:40 pm #

    Sounds fancy, im in it to win it!

  26. Devinnie Castaneda December 19, 2012 at 7:43 pm #

    I want my husband to take me but there is no way he will pay. Help me start the newyears great!

  27. Marilyn December 19, 2012 at 10:55 pm #

    In 1967 my husband was on a troop ship to Vietnam, and he has never wanted to take a cruise since. I keep telling him the Portland Spirit would be completely different and TERRIFIC…and I think I could get him to agree if we win!

  28. Archell B December 20, 2012 at 12:23 am #

    I know that it says that the tickets were to be awarded yesterday, but I am going to try anyway. I have had major transitions this year and will be celebrating my first adult New Years in over 12 years. I became a single mom three years ago and have been transforming ever since. I have found the perfect little black dress (that was on sale). I am currently not working because I just earned my two year degree with double honors – I don’t have the resources to pay to go to such a lavish event. My girlfriend (also a single mom, w no help from the father) just went back to earn her Bachelors. Please consider granting us the PRIVERLAGE to go to your amazing event.

  29. Shaadi December 20, 2012 at 2:41 am #

    I would love to win these tickets so my boyfriend and I can have a new, amazing, exciting experience while celebrating the New Year!!

  30. Scott December 20, 2012 at 4:18 am #

    Ahh getting your sea legs firmly under you ten nights after the world ends. What could be better than that? Dancing for hours with the lights of the city and a beautiful partner to kiss at midnight, that’s what. Oh for the chance to cast aside these land locked legs and dance the night fantastic.

  31. Val White December 20, 2012 at 11:21 am #

    Enter me to win! I have no date and nothing to do on New Years wah wahhhh

  32. Cora Kirkpatrick December 20, 2012 at 11:21 am #

    Ohhhh…pick me!

  33. Sonja December 20, 2012 at 11:56 am #

    I have never been on a cruise before. It would be good to get out of the house, especially since i cannot afford this otherwise.

  34. Kyle December 20, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

    We love the Portland spirit

  35. Toby December 20, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

    I work to protect the river and I want to celebrate by playing on the river!

  36. Randi December 20, 2012 at 1:10 pm #


  37. Heather December 20, 2012 at 1:26 pm #

    Always want to cruise on the River!

  38. Aaron December 20, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    i love 2 dance

  39. Rick December 20, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

    I’m not going to try to outdo anyone else’s response. There are many people here who have heartbreaking and deserving reasons for wanting to win this cruise. I will only say that it has been a difficult year for my wife and I dealing with financial challenges and chronic illness. New Year’s Day, we will celebrate 22 years of marriage. It would be wonderful to celebrate on the Portland Spirit.

  40. Jon Pauletto December 20, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    This would be incredible!

  41. Lucy December 20, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

    This will be my first New Years Eve in Portland… would be a great way to spend it.

  42. Traicy B. December 20, 2012 at 3:45 pm #

    This is my last new years without a child (pregnant right now) and this would be the perfect night out for new years. Not too crazy but interesting enough and “adult” enough to make it a night out super worth it :)

  43. Kris December 20, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    It will be our first New Year’s Eve as new residents of Portland – it would be amazing to spend it aboard the Portland Spirit!

  44. Tammy December 20, 2012 at 3:50 pm #

    This would be a wonderful way to ring in the new year! Please pick me!

  45. Kami December 20, 2012 at 3:55 pm #

    I’ve wanted to go on a cruise on the Portland Spirit for years, and have never been. This would be a nice way to experience the new year in the best city ever. My husband could celebrate our new year with no kids, this year! Thank you.

  46. Steve Burnett December 20, 2012 at 3:56 pm #

    The portland spirit is one if those things nice always wanted to do, but could never afford. This is like the Mecca of experiencing the portland spirit

  47. Beth Martin December 20, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    Oh it sounds so romantic! I’d love to dance the night away!

  48. Alex December 20, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    because it sounds lovely

  49. Alethea Smartt LaRowe December 20, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    My husband & I moved to Portland in late January 2012 so this is our first New Year’s here. We’ve never been on the river and this would be a wonderful way to ring in the new year!

  50. Sarah December 20, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    This would be a great way to spend new years!

  51. Allyson December 20, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    How fun would this be!

  52. Yvette December 20, 2012 at 4:27 pm #

    I’m spending NY’s ALONE!!! To win these tickets would mean the world to me…I’ve had a REALLY rough year and to have a little fun at the end would make bringing in the new year a little brighter. I’ve NEVER won anything and this would be a wonderful first! Please consider me!!!!

  53. Sherry December 20, 2012 at 4:29 pm #

    I’m Mary Ann and my husband is Gilligan. We’re dying to go on another “3 hour tour”. Please send us.

  54. Kim M December 20, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    Have always wanted to go on one of the Spirit trips! Would be a great way to start the new year :)

  55. Ralph December 20, 2012 at 4:43 pm #

    This is the ultimate new years party. My wife and I love cruises.

  56. Eric December 20, 2012 at 5:02 pm #

    I’m not scared

  57. Brendon December 20, 2012 at 5:11 pm #

    Took my wife on a trip a few years ago as a gift, would love to get a chance to go again!

  58. Alicia O December 20, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

    My husband and I finally get a night out for New Years and would love to win! Just recently moved to PDX and would love to see the sights!

  59. Gus December 20, 2012 at 5:21 pm #

    I would like to win tickets for the oldest, most selfish reason in the world… To impress a girl.

  60. donny December 20, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    i like to smoke on the water, the dance floor that is. when i burn it up with my lady.

  61. Sophia December 20, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    There are lots of great replies to the ad, but ultimately this will determine whether I shave my winter beard (I am a woman) or I stay home, bearded, in my pajamas.

  62. Devin December 20, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    I have never done anything for New Year’s Eve, mainly because I have never had anyone to do anything with. This year I am dating a great guy and would love to win this and take him on a New Year’s cruise to make it the best New Year’s Eve either of us have ever had!

    Thank you PDXPipeline for giving out so many wonderful gifts, especially during this time of year. I look forward to entering more contests!

  63. Cassie Patrick December 20, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets because it sounds incredibly romantic, this will be my boyfriend and I’s first new years at 21 so we will be able to enjoy it! And we work so much that we could really use a night together in a dreamy atmosphere. Plus we’ve never been on the Portland Spirit! Thanks!

  64. Michele December 20, 2012 at 6:01 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets since I haven’t celebrated New Year’s Eve for a few years now and my health was bad this year…would like to start this year in a good way and have a new beginning.

  65. Lori December 20, 2012 at 6:07 pm #

    i would so love to win this! we have never been, but have heard great things about it…we’ve been married for 18 years and have never been out just the 2 of us for New Years.

  66. Mart December 20, 2012 at 6:10 pm #

    Night air on the water, Champagne. The thrill of gliding into a New Year. Is there anything better?

  67. Anna Stokkeland December 20, 2012 at 6:11 pm #

    We are celebrating 12 years of marriage on New Years Eve, would love to have alot of people celebrating with us! LOL. We have been lucky enough to enjoy the Spirit once before on a regular cruise and would feel especially lucky to win these tickets to spend our anniversary aboard! Thanks for letting us have this chance. Fingers crossed for luck.

  68. Shayna December 20, 2012 at 6:35 pm #

    2012 was just the worst year for my family! I cannot WAIT to ring in the new year doing something EXTRA special! This would be JUST what I need to start the year off right!

  69. rosie December 20, 2012 at 6:49 pm #

    No better way to kick off the new year than on the Portland Spirit :) I want to win!

  70. Antonia December 20, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    I’ve done the Blues Cruise in the summer, but this would be a really awesome way to ring in the New Year.

  71. Renee December 20, 2012 at 7:01 pm #

    This would be a fun night on the water. Better if it could be for singles without a NYE date or plans. Oh well! There’s always next year. :-)

  72. Cory Shird December 20, 2012 at 7:06 pm #


  73. Eliza Knight December 20, 2012 at 7:22 pm #

    I love boats, cruises, New Year’s Eve! I’m turning into a wallflower with a 9 month old baby. My husband always talks me out of doing anything. With these tickets I could either talk him into going with me or justifiably go with a friend. Please, pretty please, with sugar on top pick me!!!

  74. Nola Borland December 20, 2012 at 8:05 pm #

    Merry Christmas, and what a happy new year it would be to spend it cruisin with my main man. I would love to treat him with this….otherwise it will be another year at home with the dogs, in bed by 10. so sad.

  75. arlen marsh December 20, 2012 at 8:11 pm #

    I would really love to go on this cruise. My wife is getting to the point that it will not be to long before she could not do anything like this. She barely can walk now because of her medical issues. Thia would be a wonderful present to give her.

  76. Amy December 20, 2012 at 8:17 pm #

    I would enjoy a cruise so much !!

  77. Shane December 20, 2012 at 9:02 pm #

    This sounds like one of the eat options to ring in the new year and I would love to go and experience the party on the water.

  78. Brittany December 20, 2012 at 9:24 pm #

    my bf and I would love this! we wanted to do something like this last year but it just didn’t work out.

  79. Victoria December 20, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

    OH MY the Portland Spirit is something I have wanted to try!!! I am starting to date a new guy and it would be nice to surprise him for new years! Plus I bought a hot new dress for the occasion! :)

  80. Eddie Wretch December 20, 2012 at 9:57 pm #

    This would be the most wonderful gift I could ever give to my girlfriend, she has no family in town and I make a meager wage as a caregiver for Developmentally Disabled youth, making it impossible for me to afford to attend. I would be grateful beyond words if I were to win this, for the two of us.

  81. Aber December 20, 2012 at 10:30 pm #

    Always heard good things about this cruise and really wanna get wasted on the river in style.

  82. Tiffanie Marti December 20, 2012 at 10:37 pm #

    What could be better than ringing in the New Year in style…. And seasick?

  83. Lucy December 20, 2012 at 11:27 pm #

    I’d like to win because I’ve never been to a party on a boat.

  84. Jeremy December 20, 2012 at 11:54 pm #

    This New Years trip sounds amazing! I am flying in from Utah to spend an amazing week with someone very special and would love to ring in the New Years on the Portland Spirit!

  85. Vanny December 21, 2012 at 2:12 am #

    I want to win to take my grandma, she doesn’t have many years left, but I want to make those years worth it.

  86. Dave December 21, 2012 at 5:44 am #

    Wow! Music, dancing, appetizers and champagne on the water. There’s no better way to bring in the new year. Gonna parry like it’s 2013.

  87. maya December 21, 2012 at 7:20 am #

    Giddy with this idea!

  88. roberta wiens December 21, 2012 at 7:40 am #



  89. Buster December 21, 2012 at 9:46 am #

    G/f wants NYE on the coast. I want to stay in Portland for NYE and need a convincing argument for the g/f…free tickets…;-) Thanks so much and Happy Holidays!
    Ps…I have never been on the Spirit and this would be pretty special.

  90. Dom December 21, 2012 at 9:48 am #

    OoooOoooohhhhhh I’d love to win these tixs for my parents, they would have so much fun! :D

  91. mike December 21, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    Yes please

  92. Cassi December 21, 2012 at 11:21 am #

    This would be an incredible way to celebrate the new year.

  93. Amy December 21, 2012 at 11:34 am #

    Oh, wow! I just got engaged and I can not imagine a more romantic or perfect setting to celebrate New Years with my new fiance!

  94. Nancy December 21, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    My husband and I never had a honeymoon and this would be a perfect way to celebrate 3 years of marriage! AND we live in Portland, love Portland and would love to celebrate the new year with Portland! :)

  95. Vidura December 21, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    This would be an incredibly romantic way to usher in the New Year with my amazing wife. I’ve wanted to take her on this cruise for several years and it just hasn’t been in the budget. :)

  96. birdonit December 21, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    …because I want to be on a mother f-ing boat!

  97. Ally December 21, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    My boyfriend rescued me from an abusive household almost five years ago, and I’ve never had the money to do anything extravagant or nice for him. I’m actually not having a Christmas this year, due to financial issues, but that’s alright. I’ll just have a pseudo-Christmas at some random point when I’m more financially stable. :) But a Portland Spirit cruise… man, that’d knock his socks off!

  98. Tracy December 21, 2012 at 2:14 pm #

    We haven’t had a child-free New Year in many years! Would love this!

  99. Michelle Keown December 21, 2012 at 3:19 pm #

    I would like to start 2013 on the spirt as 2012 was a horrible year with the loss of my mother and uncle. Of which they are with me in spirt now and would be in spirit on the spirt if I were to go. Thanks and god bless.

  100. Jon Neighbors December 21, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    I love Portland and think it would be so much fun to experience celebrating New Year’s Eve with my wife on the Portland Spirit before moving to the east coast in a few months!

  101. Debstrrr December 21, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

    Bored blonde BBW babe, new to area, needs to be enlightened and introduced into Portland area’s entertainment, SO I NEED TO WIN!!

  102. karla December 21, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    Pick me, pick me!

  103. Andrew Livingston December 21, 2012 at 7:27 pm #

    Havent been out for new years in years would be a nice change and it is about time to get out and do something

  104. TWils December 21, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    This sounds like an excellent way to spend an evening brining in the New Year. With your favorite person by your side, how can you not want to go on a cruise with good music to enjoy? Put me on, please! :)

  105. B. December 21, 2012 at 9:05 pm #

    I believe that I have met the man of my dreams and we plan to spend this special night together. I would love for our first New Year’s Eve together to be in such a romantic setting. Especially since the world hasn’t ended!!!

  106. Carolyn December 21, 2012 at 10:35 pm #

    I have always had to work but this year I dont. I am also recently married and would LOVE nothing more then to kiss my new husband at midnight and in style. It would be a great start to our new year together!

  107. Leonard December 21, 2012 at 11:05 pm #

    NYE Cruise, great idea!

  108. SteveO December 22, 2012 at 12:35 am #

    “Just win baby”

  109. TDog December 22, 2012 at 3:15 am #

    Please let me win!! I want to take my Mom to something fun, and we are both broke. This is the ultimate. Please

  110. Yuri December 22, 2012 at 9:29 am #

    A cruise sounds lovely!

  111. SY December 22, 2012 at 9:40 am #

    I’m single and would love to do something fun.

  112. Scotty December 22, 2012 at 10:32 am #

    Sounds like a good time

  113. S.B. December 22, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    Maybe my luck will change in 2013? This would be a good start. :)

  114. suzanna varsamas December 22, 2012 at 1:27 pm #

    January 1st is me and my husband 3rd wedding anniversary and we need our new year to start great so our year will be better than this year. We are currently homeless and live part time in our van for now. My husband got a new job a week and half ago andits giving us hope that we will get a place of our own. So make a struggling couple whos life is improving a great night with The Portland Spirit and cruise the willamette, something I’ve always dreamed of doing

  115. Jadene December 22, 2012 at 1:44 pm #

    This would just be so thrilling to be on the water for New Year’s Eve this year. I was born on a houseboat and lived on the water for the first nine years of my life, so I’d love to be on a boat for the countdown, feeling the night breeze in my hair and being kissed by my sweetheart against a backdrop of stars and glittery lights on the Willamette. My boyfriend and I both work very hard but don’t have very much money and so wouldn’t be able to afford to go out NYE unless we win tickets.

    We’re heading down to Portland for New Year’s Eve and a cruise would be wonderful!

  117. Jen Ferrero December 22, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    I NEED to win these tickets, we actually have a sitter this year and I would LOVE to spoil my awesome, amazing, hilarious hubby. Pick me, pick me, please.

  118. Jenn December 22, 2012 at 3:10 pm #

    I would love to win. My husband is always finding fun adventures for us to have around Portland and I would like to be the one to surprise him for a change this NYE!

  119. Becky Van Dyke December 22, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    This IS the place I want to start my year off. The music, my luv, and a boat. I hope I’m able to see the New Year on this cruise. :)

  120. Ashley T December 22, 2012 at 6:03 pm #

    I’d love to win because I just moved to the Portland area and this will be my first New Year’s celebration here! I’d like to do it right!

    In the words of The Lonely Island and T-Pain:

    “…I’m on a boat [email protected]*cker, take a look at me Straight flowing on a boat on the deep blue sea Busting five knots, wind whipping out my coat You can’t stop me [email protected]*cker, ’cause I’m on a boat
    Take a picture, trick, I’m on a boat, bitch We drinking Santana champ ’cause it’s so crisp I got my swim trunks and my flippie-floppies I’m flipping burgers, you at Kinko’s Straight flipping copies…”

    Portland is Beautiful and being on the Water with amazing people at an amazing New Year’s party would start the year that wasn’t supposed to happen off right!

  123. Carla December 23, 2012 at 8:08 am #

    Haven’t gone out on New Years in years. Sounds like a great way to start a new tradition

  124. Ernest Andre Lowery December 23, 2012 at 9:03 am #

    I met the love of my life after being a bachelor for many years. Her name is Nancy. I am from Chicago, IL and she is from Portland, OR. How did we meet? We met online playing poker and I just kept seeking her out to play on the same table with her. Seemed like she was not interested until one day she started to chat with me. It was love at first sight. We then planned to meet in person and have been together ever since. I would be honored and blessed to receive these tickets as I plan to propose to her and would love to do it on the Portland Spirit. This is very special to me and it would mean the world to us. Thank you for this opportunity and I truly hope you fulfill our dreams.

  125. Valerie Lang December 23, 2012 at 10:12 am #

    New Years eve will mark 3 years since I met the man of my dreams. :) New Years on Portland Spirit would be awesome!

  126. Ian December 23, 2012 at 11:13 am #

    There’s no better way to get in the holiday spirit than a cruise on the Portland Spirit!

  127. Marcy December 23, 2012 at 4:33 pm #

    My husband has always wanted to go on the Portland Spirit, I have too. He has to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. These tickets would be the best way to thank him for all of his hard work.

  128. Ron December 23, 2012 at 5:23 pm #

    I want to win because what would be cooler than winning tickets to this awesome event…? NOTHING! Nothing is the answer to that question…!

  129. Brenda Hanson December 23, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    I’d like to win because my husband and I usually end up babysitting our grandchildren on NYE and I want to do something for us this year.

  130. Brooklyn Nelson December 23, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    I would like to win!

  131. Isis December 23, 2012 at 10:35 pm #

    I’ve never been on a boat and since the world didn’t end this would be the perfect way to celebrate the new year.

  132. Angel December 24, 2012 at 1:34 am #

    Never had an opportunity to go on the Spirit, and we usually work on New Years Eve… That would be a killer way to start the new year!

  133. David Rodriguez December 24, 2012 at 1:49 am #

    I’m in the Navy and I my girlfriend is in portland I’m only going to be in town for 10 days and I just want to make her feel really special

  134. peter December 24, 2012 at 3:08 am #

    this sounds amazing! my sweetheart finally moved to portland this week. this would be a wonderful way to welcome her to portland. plus, I’ve never been! thanks!

  135. Jenny December 24, 2012 at 7:49 am #

    Trying to make things better for me and the people I love. I think this would be a good start for a year of fun and postive energy!!

  136. Asya December 24, 2012 at 7:57 am #

    This would be a very special celebration for my boyfriend and me. Both of us have lost jobs and we haven’t had much money in the last 3 years to go out and let our hair down. It would be the best new years we’ve ever had if we won tickets.

  137. Lisa December 24, 2012 at 9:17 am #

    You should pick me because everyday I work to help keep the river free of stormwater pollution and I deserve to party on the water! :)

  138. Dave G December 24, 2012 at 10:28 am #

    what a great way to spend the evening seeing the city lights!

  139. Nancy December 24, 2012 at 11:59 am #

    I’ve been out of work and my unemployment ran out. I am severely broke and have never 1 time had a good new years eve. One blessing is my boyfriend from Chicago who is here for a short period of time and it happens to be his birthday as well near new years. Please let me win tickets for two on the Portland Spirit for this fabulous event as it would be the highlight of my new year and give me the support and edge to lift my spirits. Please grant this opportunity to me, thank you very much for your time and consideration. Nancy

  140. Jon Paul Rebello December 24, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    YES PLEASE!!!!

  141. Sean December 24, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

    I’ll be celebrating with my best friend and his wife who were married on The Spirit. What better way to bring in the new year with them?

  142. Joseph December 24, 2012 at 8:35 pm #

    In 2012 I smiled, cried, laughed, loved, trusted, hated… & learned a lot about myself….all by becoming a Battlestar Galactica fan. I finished the series 2 weeks ago and now I am wallowing in limbo. My wife made double strength coffee today…and it almost helped. The PDX Spirit might jolt me back. Help.

  143. Vahagn December 26, 2012 at 11:03 am #

    I’d love to attend because I’ve never gone to a New Year’s Eve party in the States. My wife and I would love to experience it!

  144. Kimiya December 26, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

    This will be my first real visit to Portland If we (My fiance and I) win these tickets. This will be a very dreamy unforgettable l night, I’m gonna dance to the end of it.

  145. Lauren December 26, 2012 at 6:08 pm #

    I have the portland Sprit, yes I do.
    I would love to take a cruse for two
    what a wonderful way to tell 2012 good bye

  146. Maya December 27, 2012 at 11:40 am #

    i would love to get my hands on some tickets!!! my friend and i are newly single and ready to mingle! where better than portland’s own love boat to ring in that kind of new year? :)

  147. Monica wander December 27, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    I am broke and bored! Help me pdx pipeline, you are my only hope!

  148. Amanda December 27, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    no plans, no money..this would be an awesome way to kick off the new year!!

  149. Celeste December 27, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    Would love to attend who doesn’t want to go on a cruise of 3 hours ?

  150. Kate December 28, 2012 at 7:02 am #

    I would love to have the privilege of taking my husband on this cruise. I have been out of work due to several disabilities, and he has worked tirelessly all year to provide for us. He deserves a special surprise more than anyone I know, but I’ve never had the resources to do something as nice as this. Thanks for considering me and happy New Year!

  151. Briana December 28, 2012 at 12:36 pm #

    Yes please! Me please :) Oh, and my husband ;)

  152. Carrie December 28, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    In the 8 yrs of being together, my husband and I have never been out on New Years Eve. He was overseas in Iraq for 3 of them and the other times we either didn’t have a sitter or couldn’t afford it. This would be such a wonderful surprise.

  153. vince December 28, 2012 at 1:28 pm #

    I would really like to attend this new years party, perfect setting to give my girlfriend of 2 half years engagement ring.

  154. Lindsey December 29, 2012 at 11:51 am #

    What?! A cruise!! I would love to go to this!

  155. vilma c pinto December 29, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

    I have never been in the Portland Spirit, no money just the spirit to go some day. Help me that day be NYE party, my boyfriend and I would like to win the tickets. Por favor!!!!!!

  156. Lindsey December 30, 2012 at 8:24 am #

    I am having an illicit affair, and I’d love to find a NYE party where I can get away from my current group of friends and be with this special man. This party seems perfect for someone in my situation!

  157. Sarah & Melvin December 30, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    We haven’t spent a new years eve without the kids in ten years, and this will be our 12th Nye together! We would love this!

  158. Trevor December 30, 2012 at 5:03 pm #

    I’d love to attend. My wife and I have had a rough year with multiple illnesses on both sides of our families. We’re both free New Year’s Eve, so this would be a great way to welcome in the new year with a unique experience.

  159. Karen & Sean December 31, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    We would love to enjoy the Spirit on the water. Sending everyone a very Happy New Year!

  160. Ashley November 22, 2013 at 3:11 pm #

    The Portland Spirit is so much fun, and who doesn’t want to ring in the New Year on a boat? So romantic!
