On December 14, 2016, forty-seven children from the Riviera Beach Boys and Girls Club and their chaperones attended a special Christmas party on Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s MV Grand Celebration. For many of the children, it was their first time on a cruise ship. The children ranged in age from six to sixteen.
While the group was on board, they had pictures taken with Santa, received a ship tour, enjoyed lunch in the Stella Prime Restaurant and participated in dancing and a magic show. At the close of their cruise ship experience, everyone gathered at Chill Kids Club and received gifts.
