Music, moonlight set stage for Mid-Lakes Navigation theme cruises and Pirates return, too!
As if champagne, a prime rib dinner, and Central New York's majestic waterways weren't reason enough to take a Mid-Lakes Navigation cruise, now there are a few more.
Throughout the summer, Mid-Lakes Navigation will offer a variety of special events and theme cruises.
"We've been in business many years, and we know that people are looking for different kinds of experiences," says Sarah Wiles, a co-owner of Mid-Lakes Navigation. "So, to keep things fresh, we've added new sightseeing and dinner options."
