The Crab and Cruise event was a blast. It totally exceeded my expectations. The food, service, entertainment and everything was outstanding. Not one negative from this guest. I met people from all over and the event had a spirit that I will never forget. Please keep me on your mailing list. I'm ordering my crabs today for the 4th of July and I can't wait to sit down and "get crackin".
If I had one suggestion it would be to keep the cruise part "adults only". Although there was nothing risque that occurred I just think it would be better with no little ones tagging along. Just a thought. All in all my husband and I had a great time. I'm ready to sign up for September. Hope you can bring back Smitty and the On the Edge band. They were awesome!

I had a fabulous time this weekend at the fest. Crisfield, MD is a very nice, friendly little area. We felt very safe wandering in the city. The band was the best i've heard in a very long time. Dance, Dance, Dance GREAT everybody needs to let their hair down. I truly appreciated the diversity amongst the crowd.

I have just been looking at Patty Hancock’s photographs of the Crab & Cruise event in Crisfield on June 25. I have to say it brought back very happy memories for me. My trip to Crisfield remains one of my most favourite ‘foreign adventures!’ It is sad that I no longer have contact details for Val and Frank Guetens, or indeed the two charming ladies that I met at the sea-food festival all that time ago!

"I think we're gonna need a bigger boat" next year because once we all spread the word about how much fun we had, attendance will double.
