  4. Jamie October 15, 2013 at 4:26 pm #

    Take to the sea! Should I win these tickets, I would very seriously consider dressing as Lucille Bluth and good-naturedly attempting to commandeer the Portland Spirit. What’s Halloween without a little mischief?

  5. Jasmine October 15, 2013 at 5:05 pm #

    I didn’t want to give away any hints, but my costume this year would be the perfect thing to wear on a boat. In fact, it wouldn’t make sense for me to be anywhere but a boat.

  34. Bethany October 17, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    I would love to win this, it sounds so fun!

  49. M October 18, 2013 at 10:45 am #

    A river cruise was one of our first dates, and two years and a thousand miles later, I’d love to re-visit that with my boyfriend. Not to mention I LOVE Hallowe’en!

  50. Scott October 18, 2013 at 11:53 am #

    Because it’s my Birthday weekend and I love Halloween!!!!!!!!!!

  58. Bronwyn Crossman October 21, 2013 at 3:47 pm #

    Saturday Oct 26th is my 24th Birthday!!! I am driving down to Portland all the way from Bellingham, WA to see friends and have a good time but do not have any set plans. Winning a cruise would be just splendid and I have a pretty awesome homemade Halloween costume that I would love to show off. Pick me, pick me! Please :)

  59. Melissa October 21, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    The last time I was on the portland spirit was after my 8th grade graduation. It’s necessary that I go to redeem myself so the spirit doesn’t remember the extremely awkward, acne prone teenager that I was. The portland spirit needs to get to know the now cool, crafty, best costume creator the northwest has ever known, me!

  60. Terri October 21, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    Ohh what an awesome event please pick me, me and my lady have never been aboard the spirit so a dance event would be spectacular. Pleeeaase!!!

  61. Elise October 21, 2013 at 8:01 pm #

    Would love to take my visiting friends!

  62. Michelle Howlin October 21, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

    I have never done anything for Halloween ever. @ 45 years old I’d love to have my first halloween to be aboard the Portland spirit!

  63. Faye October 21, 2013 at 9:29 pm #

    Boo cruise, booze cruise. Been interested in trying one of these for a while. Give me the chance!!

  64. cassandra weber October 22, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    Me and the husband have two kids and NEED to get out on a date! We have never been on the portland cruise and would love for this to be the first!

  65. Rebecca October 22, 2013 at 10:02 am #

    Need something fun to do for Halloween, and this sounds awesome!

  66. Jordan October 22, 2013 at 10:06 am #

    If I win these, my date and I will have the best costumes on the boat!

  67. Jessica October 22, 2013 at 11:02 am #

    My feelings about the Boo! Cruise could best be summed up in a haiku:

    Bow to stern scary
    Dancing bootys in costume
    Screw the Corn Maze. Cheers!

    Would love to celebrate on the Portland Spirit!

  68. Renee October 22, 2013 at 11:22 am #

    I’ve been looking for a good costume party, and nothing beats Halloween on the water!

  69. Shawneen Bliss October 22, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    Halloween is my Anniversay! Husband & I have been looking for a new & exciting way to celebrate this year. Boo Cruise would be perfect!

  70. Jenny October 22, 2013 at 1:42 pm #

    What could be better than a costume party on a boat?!

  71. Heidi October 22, 2013 at 2:14 pm #

  74. Jade October 22, 2013 at 6:45 pm #
