So, what is Revel at the Lido?


Over the past few months, excitement has been building around Revel at the Lido.

Still, we’ve been getting the same question – what exactly does ” Revel at the Lido” mean?

(noun) – Boisterous merrymaking or festivity, usually includes drinking or dancing.
“Did you hear about the revel at the Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal on October 25th? It’s going to be a blast.”
(verb) – To take great pleasure or delight; to make merry; indulge in boisterous festivities.
“I can’t wait to revel with a cocktail in my hand and my dancing shoes.”


Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal, Port Saint John’s newest facility on the waterfront, on October 25th from 7 to 11 p.m.
(noun) – The most happening deck on a cruise ship; recreation deck. Where you would find dances, activities and games.

Not only is this revel at our sleek and chic cruise terminal going to be the party of the season, it’s the party of this quarter-century!

We’re celebrating 25 years of cruise on the last night of this cruise season. It’s a Great Gatsby-themed affair, with as much party spirit as the legendary Gatsby himself. Oceania Cruises’ Regatta will be sailing by, lit up like a floating city, at 8 p.m. that night as we raise our glasses in celebration.

Every ticket includes two drink tickets, so you won’t be searching for something to toast with. The venue will also be outfitted with several bars pouring beer, wine and cocktails.

Downstairs, you’ll be greeted by local velvet-voiced poet Clyde Wray, our “cruise director” for the evening. He will be mingling with the crowd, presenting special gifts to our valued cruise stakeholders and sponsors and introducing our entertainment for the evening – WTFunk.

This funk, soul and R&B cover band will be serenading the crowd with vintage hits and setting the dance party atmosphere. Bring your comfiest dancing shoes and get ready to revel! Upstairs, folk and jazz duo Tomato Tomato will be crooning to folks in the Fundy Room.

There, you’ll find our casino. Every ticket includes $10,000 in casino play money. Play the games for ballots and cast those ballots for a chance to win amazing prizes from a host of Uptown businesses and regional hot spots (complete list to come). Those same businesses will be represented in our “promenade” – a mini-mall with samples, demonstrations and even a chance to shop around.

Does partying make you hungry? Chow down on a host of gourmet appetizers from French-inspired restaurant Decimal 81.There will also be cupcakes from Piece O’Cake Custom Creations!

After the party is, of course, the after-party. Wind your way up to The Canterbury Lounge, one of the city’s hottest night clubs to dance the night away. Admission to the after-party is included in your ticket price.

Tickets are $60 and include all of the above. They can be purchased through the Imperial Theatre Box Office online or by calling 674-4100. You can also visit Port Saint John at 111 Water Street. Call 636-5400 or 636-5114 for more information.

Tickets will also be sold at the Saint John City Market on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Want to feel even better about your purchase? Proceeds from Revel at the Lido support the Saint John Seafarer’s Mission, a home away from home for visiting seafarers.
