What's on

The theme of the 2016 Interclub Bay Cruise is inspired by the recently held Rio Olympics Games. Each day of the cruise has an Olympic country chosen as its theme. There will be three “dress up” nights but if you want to get into the cruise spirit, you are welcome to dress up every night if you wish! For details on the events for each day and night, see our “What’s On” guide below.
