    Sounds so fun!

    I would love to win these in order to take my boyfriend’s mother on this cruise. her & I are lucky enough to enjoy each others company so much as friends and i absolutely love her. i have actually been trying to take her on this cruise since april, but could never get enough of her friends to commit to get the group rate. let me tell you, nobody loves 80’s music more than her. she is a karaoke queen and you can probably find her at a karaoke place any given weekend singing bon jovi, madonna, night ranger, or paul simon. it would seriously make her summer if i could take her on this cruise.

    I should win because I’m 2Legit2Quit.

  5. Alix July 23, 2014 at 3:29 pm #

  9. Elyse July 24, 2014 at 11:07 am #

  10. Linda S July 24, 2014 at 2:52 pm #

  11. Danielle July 24, 2014 at 3:01 pm #

    Totally tubular! I want this to add some spice to the regular 80’s night habit (that happens in my apartment … in sweat pants)

  15. Mandy July 24, 2014 at 3:29 pm #

    Sounds like a blast! My husband and I need a date night and we’ve got a soft spot for cruises :-)

  16. Sara Kelly July 24, 2014 at 3:29 pm #

  18. Brianna July 24, 2014 at 4:02 pm #

    I’ve never been on the Portland Spirit, and I’ve always wanted to check it out! This sounds like SUCH a blast, and I’m all over the costume idea :D

  19. Paola July 24, 2014 at 4:02 pm #

  20. Alison July 24, 2014 at 4:07 pm #

    Are you kidding me? Woah. My boyfriend and I see the Portland Spirit go by his place almost every night and so wish we were on there! And an 80’s theme? We would bring the lift to the party, or to the 80’s! What a great way to celebrate this nice weather and enjoy PORTLAND! Because who doesn’t love Portland and PDX Pipeline?!

  21. Tracey Mora July 24, 2014 at 4:30 pm #

    This sounds like it would be a blast! I’d love to go!!!

  24. Amie Shotwell July 24, 2014 at 5:48 pm #

    Not only would me and my girlfriends like to attend because we are “groupies” of the band BUT we went last year and now want to make it a tradition. One way to enjoy our summer. Plus, dress up too!!!

  25. Nataly Young July 24, 2014 at 6:45 pm #

    I love the 80’s!!!! Have been to some 80’s clubs in LA and now that I moved to Portland I want to get the full Portland experience. What a better way to do that than to go to an 80’s dance cruise!

  26. Shannon Milliman July 24, 2014 at 7:16 pm #

    Because I need to dance so bad.

  27. Stephanie July 24, 2014 at 7:34 pm #

    I love 80’s tunes! And on a cruise? Count me in! :)

    • Adam July 24, 2014 at 8:15 pm #

      80’s tunes? Count me in!

  28. Lauren July 24, 2014 at 9:48 pm #

    This sounds so bad its good.

  29. Dana July 24, 2014 at 10:20 pm #

    This sounds so rad! I love 80s dance nights and it’s hard to imagine them getting any more epic than being on a boat.

  30. Lynn Sargent July 24, 2014 at 11:18 pm #

    I love 80’s music and to be able to cruise along the river dancing to awesome tunes would be radical!

  31. Robin Brantley July 25, 2014 at 8:30 am #

    I know what boys like, I know what guys want. I know what boys like- boys like- boys like ME. (Especially my husband ;).
    And we were IN our 20’s IN the 80’s (but still look like it- well mostly!) so if you pick us we’ll know all the words (and moves…)
    OH Spirit you’re so fine you don’t understand, you take us by the heart and we take you by the hand!
    Ha haha… “Sucker…” (from I know what Boys Like =)

  32. Denise Martin July 25, 2014 at 8:50 am #

    I have a collection of people flying in for a weekend memorial service in August. I would love to take a few of them on the party cruise after a hard day of grieving. Please pick us!

  33. Emily July 25, 2014 at 10:59 am #

    How have I never done this?! Fingers crossed.

  34. Nasheena July 25, 2014 at 11:39 am #

  35. Rebeca July 25, 2014 at 1:04 pm #

    I would love to go out on a cruise

  43. Kathryn July 28, 2014 at 9:36 pm #

    Still have yet to go on a cruise. Rocking out to the 80’s seems like a perfect first time.

  44. KRH July 28, 2014 at 10:38 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to do this – I bet I can make my bangs as high as they were in High School!

  45. Ernie July 29, 2014 at 9:06 am #

    I’m an 80’s kid… PICK ME!!! PLEASE!!!

  46. candie camberg July 30, 2014 at 5:03 pm #

    First of all I am an 80s baby. Second I know some ladies who have been talking about going… If I have the tickets there will be no more talk we will go.

  47. Arielle July 31, 2014 at 11:50 am #

    My doctor told me I have a chronic illness that involves the deterioration of my legs…and the only cure is to dance dance DANCE!!! Please give me the tickets so that I can finally use my legs again.



  48. Ally Cooper July 31, 2014 at 1:09 pm #

    I want to get my dance on, on a boat! And I’ll bring a bunch of people to share in the fun!

  49. Kathryn July 31, 2014 at 2:36 pm #

    I would love to get my boogie on! I just took the bar exam and it was terrible. Now it’s time to celebrate before I move away from Portland in a month!

  50. Jason July 31, 2014 at 2:41 pm #

    sounds fun

  51. Cec July 31, 2014 at 3:36 pm #

    want to go badly!

  52. Kim H July 31, 2014 at 4:03 pm #

    We are new to PDX and would love to experience some of what it has to offer!

  53. Scott July 31, 2014 at 4:49 pm #

    Sounds like fun

  54. nancy July 31, 2014 at 5:28 pm #

    My hubby and I were clubbing in the 80’s while we were single. We’re now in our 50’s, have 2 kids and have not been able to afford a date night in over a year. Grandma says she’ll provide the babysitting if I win the tickets. What do you say? Could you help a married couple keep their sanity this summer and give us the (free) break – night out?

  55. Tim July 31, 2014 at 5:45 pm #

    I only lived three years during the 80s. I need to make up for the seven that I missed.

  56. William Stewart July 31, 2014 at 7:23 pm #

    Can’t touch this!

  57. Dave G. July 31, 2014 at 8:59 pm #

    Reminds me of what I did in the 80’s.. go out and.Dance!Sounds fun!

  58. Janelle Grizzard August 1, 2014 at 6:41 am #

    We would dance all night. Or until it was time to get off.

  59. Jeanne August 1, 2014 at 6:42 am #

    Would love to go!

  60. Tamera August 1, 2014 at 2:17 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets,
    My 50th Birthday is in September
    and this would be an AWESOME
    way to celebrate :-)

  61. Cindy m August 4, 2014 at 9:25 am #

    I love the 80s and I have never been on the spirit before! Would love to take my boyfriend!

  62. Bobbi Gould August 4, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    You can dance if you want can leave your friends behind…Cuz if they don’t dance then they’re no friends of mine! How, in all of my years of living in Portland, did I never make it on the spirit? And girls just want to have fun! PLUS, I can write about the experience on my blog and my new travel site I am forming! p.s. I have the BEST costumes. Check out my blog and facebook. LET’S GET WEIRD!

  63. Si Llage August 7, 2014 at 4:03 pm #

    Such summer fun this would be, thank you for the offer.

    Dancing on the water with friends to the most fun decade of music sounds delightful.

  64. Sharon Vance August 8, 2014 at 9:21 am #

    My wardrobe is still 80’s style!!!!!

  65. Si Llage August 14, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

    I had to bust out a calculator to figure out what eight times 7 is, ha!

    This dance cruise sounds like fun, thanks for the opportunity.

  66. Mac August 16, 2014 at 11:24 am #

    I don’t believe these giveaways are ever real because I’ve never won, nor has anyone I know ever won.

  67. A Davenport August 23, 2014 at 7:11 am #

    I fell for a guy I work with and he’s such a recluse it’s difficult to find ways to hang out with him outside of work. 80’s music being one of the things we have in common, it would be a good way for us to get to know each other better.

  68. Caity Benston September 19, 2014 at 8:46 am #

    Um who wouldn’t want to go on a Radical 80’s Dance Cruise? This would be so. much. fun!!
