Cruise ship in Toledo???

We got home this evening around 9:30 p.m. and there was a huge ship in the channel - but it didn't look like a freighter...

It had at least three decks with a couple of towers and neon lights flashing. The decks had rows of lights from multiple windows. It looked like a cruise ship going up the river.

Even with binocs, it was clearly not a freighter.

Is a cruise ship scheduled for arrival in the Port of Toledo this weekend?

Yes

It is for the I-280 party tomorrow night (thurs). I saw them talking about it on Conklin and Company. I did not pay too much attention to it, but they were talking about bringing a big ship from somewhere for the party. They had to find a ship to hold a party for around 800 people.

They needed something that could hold 800 to 1200 people, and they found a boat that used to be owned by Merv Griffin. The boat will come from Detroit, they sold 1100 tickets, there are 100 to 200 tickets left. This will happen at 6:00 p.m. which is when boarding happens then the boat leaves at 8:00 p.m. It will cruise around for a bit then the gala will be over.

We don't remember days only moments...

...when viewed all lit up at night...I know that the Port's trying to get cruise ships to stop on a regular basis...wishful hoping that this might have been the first one.

That's Guest Zero's new ride!
