    What a fantastic idea! Combining the warmth of reggae music with dancing, formal wear, refreshments, and, best of all, a cruise on the Portland Spirit! 2014 has to rock after a night like this!

  16. Irina December 11, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go on this. Sign me up, pretty please with cherry on top!

  17. monica burnett December 11, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

  18. Lori Waggoner December 11, 2013 at 4:52 pm #

    I would love to do this for New Years! Will be driving up from Eugene..

  19. indika December 11, 2013 at 5:44 pm #

    I will absolutely love to attend this event reggae being one of my favorite genres. I also may very well likely know others in attendance or may get some friends to attend. This will be my first time on the portland spirit and my first time on a cruise ship and it being a cultural event tickles my anthropology bone.

    • indika December 11, 2013 at 5:46 pm #

      I have also NEVER done anything for New Years and this would be an epic first time New Years event.

  20. Nicole December 11, 2013 at 6:08 pm #

    My best friend and I would love to bring in 2014 with a bang. It’s been a rough year for the both of us.

  21. Stephanie December 11, 2013 at 8:01 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets!

  22. Kimberly December 11, 2013 at 8:36 pm #

  23. Marucina December 11, 2013 at 9:16 pm #

    I would love to attend what I know will be one of the hottest parties in town! What better way than to welcome the new year in style with reggae!

  24. RASHIDA ALLEN December 11, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

    My husband and I was laid off for 5 years, thank god for savings. We are now in a financial position to travel and would love to ring in the New Year in a new location!!! Hubby loves Reggae and I, R&B. We have suits and dresses from our corporate days and would enjoy dusting them off to spend a night with local Oregonians. Look forward to ringing in the New Year with you.

  25. Kat December 11, 2013 at 10:12 pm #

    Every year my husband and I host a party for friends and family. This year, it would be nice to do something just for us.

  26. Tracy December 11, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    Husband left me two days before our baby was born. I need a good start to the new year. Please pick me.

  28. Victoria December 12, 2013 at 12:18 pm #

  29. Yume December 12, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

  30. Kathryn December 12, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

  31. Annie December 12, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

    My boyfriend and I just found out we are pregnant and this will probably be my last year in a sexy dress and our last new years as just the two of us. Also, we’ve never been on the Portland Spirit and I have always wanted to go!!!

  32. tim December 12, 2013 at 3:00 pm #

    I wanna win!

  33. Emily December 12, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

    I’m not one for begging. … but pretty please? I would love to ring in this New Year in my schnazzy dress. It would make for an amazing start to my year and an awesome end to this one! Cheers.

  34. Yael December 12, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    I would love to ring in 2014 on the Spirit!

  35. Trina December 12, 2013 at 3:06 pm #

    If you pick me as the winner, I’ll take you with me, lovely PDX Pipeline employee! You know who you are! ;) Let’s do this!!

  36. Erin December 12, 2013 at 3:37 pm #

    Reggae is better music for the ears and soul than rap or loud rock! :-) I am tiring of the Bollywood dances, so this would be a nice change!

  37. April December 12, 2013 at 3:43 pm #

    I would love to take my boyfriend to this for our first New Year’s together! This would be a great way to end this roller coaster of a year.

  38. Jennifer R December 12, 2013 at 3:43 pm #

    My husband and I have not been out on New Year’s Eve since we were first married 17 years ago. This would be a very special treat for us.

  39. Rae December 12, 2013 at 4:24 pm #

    My hubs and I got engaged on New Year’s Eve and haven’t been able to get out on a date for New Years since! We have two little ones, so that makes it hard, but we would DEFINITELY FIND A BABYSITTER if we won!

  40. Bjoern December 12, 2013 at 4:39 pm #

    Fun! Would love to go.

  41. Sara Goldman December 12, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    Man, I always wanna check these things out, but then we never do. Please pick me so we can party like it’s 1999!

  42. Mary Maxson December 12, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

    This would be the best New Year’s ever!!!!

  43. Michael Paul December 12, 2013 at 6:56 pm #

    This will not only be my first time in Portland, but my girlfriends as well. I am going to celebrate my 21st birthday there and this would be a great way to kick off 2014 and my new life being 21!!

  44. Gabriela December 12, 2013 at 6:56 pm #

  46. Yuliana December 12, 2013 at 8:06 pm #

    I abaolutely Love portland! And I’ve lived in a small town all my life I’ve never done anything real exciting. last time I was in Portland I went up with my boyfriend for his drill for the military and I tried getting him to do the cruise but he said it was too expensive. We are also going on our first year of dating in January and this would be the most incredible way to celebrate God’s putting us in eachothers lives! please give us this most amazing opportunity!! :)

  47. Kendra Ashley December 12, 2013 at 8:43 pm #

    I want to go with my husband because we are just moving to Portland Dec. 30th and it will be a great way to start the new year in a new city!!!!!

  48. Aaron B December 12, 2013 at 9:11 pm #

    Nothing is more Rasta than a black tie formal on a boat. Bring it on!

  49. Matt December 12, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    With two kids, my wife and I never get to do anything just the two of us anymore. For an experience like this I think we could splurge for a babysitter!

  50. Sam Berg December 12, 2013 at 10:10 pm #

    Thank you for the generous giveaway.

    This New Year’s Eve is the 16th anniversary of when my partner and I fell in love.

    We don’t celebrate extravagantly most years, but every now and again it’s romantic to dress up for each other and remember the night eight single co-workers went to a New Year’s Eve party and two came back not single anymore.

  51. Lisa December 12, 2013 at 11:49 pm #

    What a great way this would be to celebrate the night & the new year!

  52. David December 12, 2013 at 11:51 pm #

    I would love to surprise my wife with such a special night out to bring in the new year.

  64. Alison December 14, 2013 at 5:40 pm #

    Hi there! I’ll be traveling back from Virginia where I’m stationed as an active duty servicemember in the USN. Much as I love working on a ship, I’ve never been on a normal cruise boat, and have always wondered what it would be like to be out and not working.

    I’m also bringing my better half across the country with me – he’s also in the navy, but from North Carolina, and while he’s seen the city of Roses before, I’d love for him to see the beauty of it from the Willamette.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  65. Kathryn December 14, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    Ya mon! Sounds purrrrfect!

  66. Saoirse December 14, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

  67. Janie December 14, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

    I would love tickets to this! I have never celebrated New Years in a big way and I really need to this year! I need to start this year off right :)

  68. Kelsey December 14, 2013 at 9:52 pm #

    Yes please!!

  69. Linda McNamara December 15, 2013 at 2:28 am #

    I have a sexy black dress I need to wear! A friend coming from out of town for New Years and what better way to show off Portland (and my dress) then on the Portland Spirit listening to Reggae and other fun music !! :D

  70. Diana Y December 15, 2013 at 10:17 am #

    Love to be partaking in a long overdue night out and to finally see my guy in a tux!

  71. Yerfren Enmine December 15, 2013 at 4:11 pm #

    Yeah, well…it’s like this: a long time ago, I lived in the West Indies on a little island for about 2 years–not much to do there except learn the local culture. Very irie place.

    It should be no surprise, then, that I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year than to take a nice Portland girl soca dancing and listening to some fine reggae: Yeh-ESS, mon!.

  72. Gloriana R December 15, 2013 at 5:04 pm #

    I would love to win those tickets. It’s gonna be my first new years eve in Portland :)

  73. fasai December 15, 2013 at 5:48 pm #

  74. Mary L December 15, 2013 at 8:59 pm #

    Moving to Portland on the 23rd from the desert! What better way to ring in our first New Years in Portland ?!?!?!?

  75. Megan December 15, 2013 at 9:09 pm #

    I just wanna win to bring in 2014 in a fun way with great people!

  76. Cari December 15, 2013 at 11:13 pm #

    This would be a great way to ring in my first new year in Portland, and celebrate many new beginnings!

  77. Michaela December 15, 2013 at 11:29 pm #

    This is our second new years together, but I had to work last year, so that was kind of lame. Thought I was going to have to work again this year, but luckily that changed.
    Winning would be awesome!

  78. Tiara J December 16, 2013 at 2:19 am #

    In desperate need of a date with my hubby. This events sounds like it’s going to be happening. Would love to win tickets!!!

  79. Renae December 16, 2013 at 8:40 am #


    I would love to win tickets for this event. Reggae + Black Tie Event + New Years Eve on a boat sounds like a wicked good time! I have some fabulous cocktail dresses that I would love to wear and my husband looks mighty fine in a tuxedo and bow tie. We have never attended an event like this and it would help start our 2014 right.

  80. Crystal Estacio December 16, 2013 at 9:19 am #


    My boyfriend and I are from Seattle and we will be traveling to Portland for the New Year’s! We LOVE going to Portland since it is such a great city! This is our first small trip for the year since we both have been so busy. This event would be the icing on the cake if we win tickets to celebrate New Year’s on a boat!

  81. Kim Porter December 16, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    Pick me! Pick me!!! ;) Was in Indianapolis last year at a spectacular NYE’s party. Can PDX do as well? I’d like to find out. I suspect it could be amaze-balls.

  82. Ann December 16, 2013 at 7:18 pm #

    I have never been on the Spirit and have yet to enjoy a large official NYE event. I love reggae and r&b music. This sounds like sooo much fun!

  83. Kristen December 16, 2013 at 7:42 pm #

    Well, seeing as it’d be my first New Years Eve living in Portland, I can’t think of a better way than dancing my ass of with my love and cruising down the river!

    – Kristen

  84. Karen December 16, 2013 at 8:44 pm #

    I just found out I am starting a new position at work starting Jan.1, 2014. I can’t think of a better way to toast to success in 2014 than to get the chance to attend the Black Tie event and Cruise on the Portland Spirit. Please Make me a Winner

  85. Alison December 16, 2013 at 8:51 pm #

    This would be a dream come true! I know, but it really is true. My friend will be in town and I would love to show her the parties here are WAY better than New York! Portland is where it’s at, and this would top off my New Year! I’ve always had a crappy new year, and something has ALWAYS gone wrong. I would LOVE to turn that around for 2014 and make this one I won’t forget, we will partay the night away!!!!!

  86. Itzel December 16, 2013 at 9:49 pm #

    My hubby wants to wear his wedding suit at least one more time and it will be our first time visiting Portland….This would be awesome!

  87. Andrea December 16, 2013 at 9:53 pm #

    2013 has been an AMAZING year. I earned a scholarship to study in USA, I got married with the most wonderful man on earth, I moved to the United States, so well….what is the best way to finish this great year? What about a couple of tickets for an unforgetable night?


  88. Kelsey December 16, 2013 at 10:19 pm #

    I like a girl and I want to go to something fancy for our first kiss! Tickets please!!

  89. Ashley December 16, 2013 at 11:57 pm #

    I would absolutely love to go on this cruise! It’s my first New Years as an adult(21), first year in Portland, and I’ve never been on a cruise. I think this would be GREAT Fun!!

  90. Erika December 17, 2013 at 1:15 am #

    I would love to win tickets because my husband and I will be in Portland for New Year’s and we have absolutely no plans. We love to dance and to just have a great time together, so I know this cruise will be a night to remember!

  91. William Stewart December 17, 2013 at 5:55 am #

  93. James December 17, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    Reggae, alcohol and a boat.. What’s not to like.
    Thank you.

  94. Phuong December 17, 2013 at 3:20 pm #

    Never win anything in my life! Hope winning this ticket can be a good start for 2014! :)

  95. Tony Balogna December 17, 2013 at 5:37 pm #

    Oh my goodness gracious! Should auld acquaintance be forgot! This event would be sweeet and a fantastic way to chime in the New Years. Smell you later 2013!!!

  96. sean December 17, 2013 at 5:47 pm #

    Winning tickets to such a sweet event might actually allow me to find a date for NYE. Besides, we won’t have to drink nearly as much alcohol as the swaying boat will make us feel blitzed instantly.

  97. CJ December 17, 2013 at 6:41 pm #

    I have such a great outfit for this, but the only way I’m going is if I win! O Fortuna!

  98. Shaina December 17, 2013 at 8:13 pm #

    My birthday is New Years Eve 12/31 & free tickets would be the best gift ever!!

  100. komivi December 17, 2013 at 9:06 pm #

    OOOh LA LA Je veux Alez!!! My Fiancee will love this…. if I win

  101. Alex K. December 17, 2013 at 9:23 pm #

    I Need to win because the love of my life will be here.

    It all started when I saw an episode of how I met your mother, it was the one when ted and barney had a Tuxedo night. It wasn’t the main point of this episode, but it was in there nonetheless. To my surprise, just that day, I was awarded at my local dry cleaners with a discarded tuxedo!

    It was a sign from the universe. It was saying “suit up”. So I did, and it fit perfectly. I checked the ticket in the pocket of the jacket left over from the dry cleaners. The name on it read “Olivia”.

    “Weird” I thought, “why would the owner of this tuxedo be named Olivia?” but then it hit me. This dry cleaning ticket was not from my dry cleaners, but from one in portland!

    Not one to take signs from the universe lightly, I made sure to track down this particular dry cleaners during my next visit to portland, just two weeks ago from today. I asked the the lady if she knew who Olivia was. And she became very quiet, but obviously a little excited.

    She knew exactly who Olivia was. “Oh yes!” she said “She has all of her laundry done here. In fact, you just missed her! Such a mature, smart, beautiful young lady. Sad though…”

    “What’s sad?” I urged

    “She had planned to go on the new years boat cruise with her brother who had just returned from the navy, so she had his tuxedo brought in to be cleaned and pressed. She was so excited, she hadn’t seen him for years! But just last month, he was suddenly called away, and on the same day, I am embarrassed to admit, the tuxedo she brought in for him had been mixed up into an order I shipped to tri-cities. I tried to locate it for her, but it seems to have dissapeared. And her brother, secretive as his new mission was, was not able to say goodbye, where he was going, or when he’ll be back. So sad…”

    The tuxedo…MY tuxedo……..his tuxedo. But before I could tell her that I had come across the tuxedo, she continued…

    “When I explained to Olivia that I had lost her brother’s tuxedo, she told me how he had dissapeared as well, and that it was fate. She said she hoped the tuxedo would be put to good use, and would help someone else find love as strong and true as she has for her own family. She hoped that it would one day come back to her, because it would bring her hope that her brother would return as well.”

    “What about the new years cruise? will she still go?”

    “Of course she will. To honor her brother. Though she will be alone.”

    That’s when I decided, that nothing would stop me from getting on that cruise. And THAT is why I need these tickets.

  102. Sammy December 17, 2013 at 10:07 pm #

    Hi! I would love to attend this event because I have never been on the Portland Spirit and I have heard so many great things, and I also love Reggae!

  103. Tara n. b. December 17, 2013 at 10:25 pm #

    This is the first time that my husband and I will be able to go out on New Years in years (having kids will do that :) and we are SO EXCITED! We would LOVE to be able to attend an event like this!

  104. Shanna December 18, 2013 at 12:52 am #

    Please please- pretty please! So many p’s!!

  105. Diana December 18, 2013 at 10:45 am #

    Omg, a Reggae New Year’s river cruise?! That sounds too crazy to be true. It’s not true, I don’t believe it. I would never want to go to that, even if I won free tickets. #reverse_psychology

    A while ago I had made plans to spend New Years with my boyfriend, but we broke up! Now I have nothing to do, and I do not want to ring in the new year watching Gilmore Girls at home by myself. Please, I need to start 2014 fresh and this would do it!

  107. Megan Warrington December 18, 2013 at 2:33 pm #

  114. Izabela December 19, 2013 at 8:13 am #

    I would very much love to get dressed up and celebrate new years. In the 8 years I have lived here, I have never been out for New Years in PDX! I have lost a considerable amount of weight, changed my lifestyle and now I want to show it off!!! My boyfriend also just lost his job since his company went belly up and I want to treat him to a black tie affair! Please please please!!

  115. David Colden December 19, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I am just getting back with my girlfriend after a long hiatus and want to do something special for her. This would be the most amazing surprise I could give her to ring in the new year. I hope I get a chance to take her on this awesome cruise.

  116. Laura Speed December 19, 2013 at 12:41 pm #

    Best new year’s plan ever.

  117. john December 19, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

  118. Cory December 19, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

  121. Emily December 19, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    As a cook, you never expect to have New Years Day off – and I do! My man and I could use a fun night in Portland to celebrate our first New Years together!
    Also…you want people on the dance floor? We can get them there!!

  122. dana December 19, 2013 at 3:42 pm #

  137. Roxy December 20, 2013 at 4:18 pm #

    I would love to be on this cruise because my boyfriend and I are ever so broke, but the truth is, we clean up so nice! If we only had the opportunity to wear our New Year’s best, we would. Plus, we look AMAZING on boats: yachts, pontoon boats, Seadoos, boats with and without sails, steamboats, WE LOOK GREAT ON BOATS.

  138. Laurel December 20, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    I would LOVE tickets, this looks like so much fun!

  139. Steve December 21, 2013 at 3:28 am #

    I want to win tickets because I moved to Portland just over a month ago and want to ring in my first New Year in the city by dancing my ass off at an awesome party!

  140. Emily December 21, 2013 at 7:57 am #

  141. Richard December 21, 2013 at 10:11 am #


  142. Hanna White December 21, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    About a year ago my girlfriend and I celebrated our first anniversary together on the Portland Spirit and had a great time. We’ve been together for two years now and have been looking for something to do on New Years, since this will be the first year we’re both in Portland for it. I would love to win tickets to this event and have a fun and romantic night out with her on the water.

  143. Akasha December 21, 2013 at 10:35 pm #

    Just moved to PDX from NYC via the West indies and would LOVE to feel a little bit of home for the New Year. Pick me to win these tickets!

  144. Naomi December 21, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

    I would love to attend this event to ring in a brand new year with my wonderful mother. This past year she has had several medical problems and got some bad news, but she is trying to stay positive and not let anything defeat her. However, she hasn’t been able to go out this past year due to accumulation of medical bills and trying to help me through college, so this would be a delight for her–to dress up fancy and enjoy a night out on the water. If you could make this happen for her, she (and I) would be ever so thankful.

    Thank you so much for your consideration! :)

  145. Brandon December 21, 2013 at 11:53 pm #

    I’m flying back into Portland from Japan over the holiday to surprise my family (I’m enlisted in the air force). I have a first date with a wonderful and vibrant woman while I’m in town, and this seems like the perfect place to take her.

  146. Marta December 22, 2013 at 12:36 am #

    I’d like to win these tickets, because it’s my first year in the States, first year as a married woman, first year away from my family and I just need some fun!

  147. becca December 22, 2013 at 10:26 am #

    I have never been on the Portland Spirit and wanted to for a long time. This would be amazing and Def a new years never forgotten. Please pick me :)

  148. Ian December 22, 2013 at 10:51 am #

    I just got my black tie dry cleaned so I’m ready to go.

  149. Kerri December 22, 2013 at 5:54 pm #

    I’d love to win these tickets because I currently don’t have plans for the new years!

  150. Alex Richman December 22, 2013 at 8:25 pm #

    Drinking + boats, what could go wrong? Sign me up!

  151. Michael December 22, 2013 at 10:28 pm #

    Me and my girlfriend just moved to Oregon from Montana and would really love to have an amazing New Years portland style!!!!!!!!!!! Pick us!!!!!!!!

  152. Kelly December 23, 2013 at 11:01 am #

    I currently have no plans for NYE and this sounds like an amazing plan! My sister will be visiting Portland for her first time from Cali, this would be a fantastic way for us to kick off the new year!

  153. Olivia December 23, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    I am meeting up with a friend in Portland this year and we’d love to celebrate in style. After flight and hotel, this would help make our NYE dreams come true.

  154. Kate December 23, 2013 at 4:30 pm #

    I just turned 21 in October and I’m hoping to have a fantastic New Years partying downtown Portland!

  155. Kristin December 23, 2013 at 11:04 pm #

    I want to go because it’s my birthday!!!!! And having a birthday on New Year’s Eve sucks when everyone is counting down for it to end and kiss each other when it’s over… BUT with some amazing music. And people this could be the best birthday ever! Pleaseeeee!

  156. Jenny December 24, 2013 at 10:39 am #

    It sounds like fun!

  157. Lewis December 24, 2013 at 11:23 pm #

    Need to go! Already have work off and just want to have some fun! Worth doing math for too! (may have got it wrong the first time – admission)

  158. Kimberly December 26, 2013 at 9:21 am #

  162. Peter Garry December 26, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

    I would love to go on this trip! I didn’t get a Christmas this year because my entire family was scattered all over the country and I feel like I have missed out in some much needed fun as of late. I love boats, boo’s music and interacting with future friends!!!!!!1

  163. Ranae December 27, 2013 at 10:55 am #

    I have yet to be floating around while the ball drops. Sounds amazing. I suppose if I don’t win these tickets, all just wade into the Willamette with a bottle of champagne. Please, save me from myself.

  164. Aj Wilkens December 27, 2013 at 5:27 pm #

    I don’t have a black tie… so if I won tickets, I would have a reason to get one!

  165. matte December 27, 2013 at 10:01 pm #

    Throw my hat in the NYE ring. My relatives have are visiting and I need to escape for a night. It would be the perfect alibi.

  166. Danielle December 28, 2013 at 4:56 pm #

    Sounds like a great way to ring in the new year. Time to pick out the right fancy dress.

  167. Mike Ross December 30, 2013 at 7:40 pm #

    Heck yea! Let’s get this party started! Hopefully my girl and I can win some! :) Been on the spirit before and loved it!

  168. Crystal December 30, 2013 at 8:32 pm #

    This sounds AMAZING!! I need a night out!!

  169. Rachel December 31, 2013 at 6:47 am #

    Because everyone deserves a new beginning. And with the year I have had, I could really use a fresh start.

  170. Jackie September 16, 2014 at 10:49 am #

    I’ve never been to a New Years Eve celebration. I would love to experience this for the first time in Portland! My best friend and I would have so much fun getting dressed up and going!

  171. Matthew Rose November 2, 2014 at 3:47 pm #

    Would love to attend the event this year. Fingers crossed you can help with getting me a ticket or too for the Mrs.

    New Years Eve is my 3rd anniversary with my fiance, this year it will be the last one because we will be getting married in 2015. It would be amazing if we could end this year and our dating anniversary with a BANG!

  173. James December 22, 2015 at 3:36 am #
