On July 12th, excited groups from Oakmont Parkway, Oakmont Sterling, Oakmont Rochester Independent, Oakmont Rochester Assisted, and Oakmont Sterling Assisted enjoyed the calming waves and relaxing breeze of the Detroit River aboard an afternoon lunch cruise upon the Detroit Princess River Boat. The weather was beautiful, the space was elegant, and our residents arrived ready to set sail and enjoy an afternoon of elegance and entertainment.
The two-hour cruise treated guests to an unparalleled view of the Detroit and Windsor waterfronts, including Belle Isle State Park and the Renaissance Center. Lunch was a buffet-style affair, with freshly made options that gave everyone something to enjoy. Dessert was served and the entertainment began: the sweet sounds of the Motown tribute act The Prolifics. Dressed to the nines in their matching sequenced blue jackets, the Prolifics ran through the greatest hits of Detroit Soul including selections from the Temptations and Four Tops. They truly had everyone singing along.
Many residents ventured to the top deck to take in the sights, while others stayed on the lunch deck and danced, quite literally, to the non-stop music. The ship returned to port around 2:30, and Oakmont residents got back on the buses to head home, excited for the new friends and memories made during the wonderful afternoon cruise.
