Paradise Charter Cruises

Two tickets to paradise. That Eddie Money oldie hummed through my mind all morning as I cheerily dressed for a Sunday brunch aboard Paradise Charter Cruises’ boat on Lake Minnetonka. The weather was cool and overcast skies threatened rain, but nothing was going to discourage me from going. After a long year of pandemic isolation and six months of cold weather, I was desperate for a good time out with my partner. This brunch cruise offered a perfect launchpad back into life – an affordable luxury just a few minutes from home. It turns out I need not have worried at all. Perfect weather is not required for a pleasant time on a Paradise cruise.

If Jessica Huang’s creations don’t magically come to life in the middle of the night and go on heartwarming adventures together, then they really ought to start doing so.
