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 September 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!

What a simply amazing event and cruise! This is the "real Maryland"... eating steamed crabs and then taking a cruise on the Chesapeake Bay! ALL of the food was wonderful, and the band was simply amazing. Go, Smitty! We are looking forward to the next Crab and Cruise!

"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.
