Rock The Boat III: All aboard!
On Apr. 8, the Capilano Students’ Union (CSU) is hosting the biggest party of the year, a nautical adventure aboard the Queen of Diamonds yacht launching at 7:30 pm from the Plaza of Nations. The popularity of Rock the Boat for two years prior warranted transforming the year-end yacht party into an annual occasion, and CSU Vice President of Student Life Beatriz Miralles claimed this year is going to be different from the previous two events in a hyped fashion.
“Rock the Boat has always been successful since who doesn’t want to party on a boat?” she said. In response to the higher demands from the student body, Miralles also noted that the party will have not one, but three party buses to shuttle students to the afterparty at Celebrities Nightclub, which she managed to secure at the reduced cost of just $1,700.
“It is hard to make an event after exams since people travel, but before exams it’s a busy time for everyone, myself included. We try our best to cater to the majority of the student body and look out [for] their best interests,” she said. “The improvements include making the experience unique each year and to make sure students get their money’s worth.” This year, the Student Life committee has organized for professional DJs Julez, McBeathers and Giuliano Rascan to perform on board, and Miralles added that improvements have been made to the menu.
Passage, an on-board Seafarer’s Dinner, which includes a variety of pastas and salads, and a drink ticket for the afterparty at Celebrities, will be included. As of Mar. 31, tickets are officially sold out.
