Join us for this special three-hour event, hosted by Emcee Extraordinaire Jerry Blavat and our cruise host, Jason Venner, to relive the very best moments from the past 10 years of Malt Shop Cruises and catch up with our Malt Shop artists with new interviews, performances, gameshows, and more!

Let's kick off our night with a welcome from Emcee Extraordinaire Jerry Blavat, Cruise Host, Jason Venner, and Executive Producer, Alan Rubens. We'll take our first walk down memory lane with our favorite way to kick off any cruise - a look at our Sailaway parties over the years!
