Second boat is the Island Queen, a replica of an old faux paddle-wheel riverboat.   The top deck is an open-air deck.   Lunch deck on this one is the second deck, with tables, but lunch is served buffet style. 

The buffet menu can be seen at http://www.1000islandscruises.ca/index.cfm/dining-options/menus/island-queen-buffet-lunch-menu/

Two choices of boats.   One is closed-in glass-topped, large catamaran Island Star and lunch service on it is plated lunch delivered to your table.

Social Events / Lunch Cruise through Thousand Islands?
« on: April 30, 2017, 01:22:50 AM »
At the last CTA meeting, there was a brief discussion about a possible CTA-sponsored social event.   During that discussion the possibility of a Thousand Islands cruise with lunch onboard came up.

Please review the following and reply with your comments about what you think.

--------------------------------------------

Thousand Island Cruises operating out of Kingston offers a 3-hour sightseeing cruise from Kingston east through the Admiralty Group of the Thousand Islands. 

Lunch cruises start at 12:30pm.   Cost is $64 plus tax per person, $44 for children.

http://www.1000islandscruises.ca/index.cfm/dining-options/daily-lunch-cruise/

Two boats are used on weekends, each with it's own variation of boat type and lunch menu, and are described in the follow-up replies further down this page.   

Please reply to this thread to provide your comments on preferred date(s) and preferred boat/menu.   If enough are in favour of going ahead with a club cruise, we should book early so as to ensure that seats are available on whatever date is selected.
