Reviews and Testimonials for Lake CdA Cruises

Captain Carl.  We met him as we were checking out the boat ride to Santa’s Warehouse.  He explained how it would work to get our people on board and suddenly we were Captain Carl’s guests and we were ‘special’.  The whole experience was beyond our expectations.

Hi – just wanted to touch base regarding our holiday cruise last Friday.  It was a huge hit!  Everyone really enjoyed it.  The staff and captain were great to work with, the food delicious!  Santa did a great job too and I’m so impressed with Mr. Hagadone and the resort for the holiday decorations.  Every year he seems to step it up even more!  Thank you so much for organizing it all.  I’m hoping this will become an annual event.

A  great, impressive event and everyone had fun. Thank you again for everything!

Hi, Kelly:

Linda and I wanted to let you know that our 50th Wedding Anniversary Cruise this past Saturday afternoon was outstanding! It is all we expected it to be. Captain Scott was great and made the cruise very special. And the service crew gets top marks for the way they treated our guests and the food was perfect. We can not give you any suggestions to make the experience any better than it was. Thank you and all the staff that was with us for an absolutely great time!

On behalf of the Coeur d’Alene High School Class of 1965, I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to Hagadone Hospitalities for helping to make our reunion such a great success.  I especially want to recognize Jason Jaeger and his staff at the Best Western Plus Coeur d’Alene Inn.  I want to personally thank Carol Kreighbaum, Director of Catering, Brent Reuer, Manager, and Lisa Howlett, Banquet Manager, the chefs and banquet personal for the excellent service and the wonderful buffet.  Our Sunday cruise was perfect thanks to Kelly VanDewerker, Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises Sales and Booking Manager, Carl Fus, Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises Lead Captain and Manager, Captain Jeff Perracciano and the Mish-a-Nock crew.  I have been inundated with classmate e-mails stating what a great reunion it was.  As a fellow Hagadone Hospitality Team Member, I wanted everything to be perfect.  I was not disappointed.  Our team exceeded all my expectations.  Thanks so much.
